    I’ve been poo free for a couple of years now and couldn’t be happier. Before, my hair was frizzy, dry, and damaged looking. Now, it looks healthy with natural curls…no more frizz!

    Could you be very specific with amounts you use. I’m intersted in trying but reading the posts on Crunchy Chicken is giving me second thoughts.

    Could you share specifically the amounts you use? I’d like to try, but when I read the posts at Crunchy Chicken I had second thoughts. Did your hair have an adjustment period?

    I use a handful… about a quarter cup. I get it just wet enough to make a paste and then I massage it in really well, then rinse really well.

    My hair had an adjustment period. The biggest change for me was going from shampooing every day to only once per week. I waited two days, shampooed, then three days, and so on. I wore braids and wide headbands while my hair “adjusted.” It didn’t take more than two weeks.

  6. Oh, good, thanks for giving more details! I have long hair like Crunchy Chicken so I was really interested to get more info about what you do and how you do it.

    I’ve tried to go without shampoo twice now, and my scalp got too itchy. But I also didn’t have the baking soda technique, just the method some people use of completely going without ANYthing. Never made it long enough to find out if it works (apparently it can take 6-8 weeks for your hair to adjust).

    Also — this one detail has had me wondering — when you get your hair done, do you let them shampoo it? And if you do, do you have to start over with your adjustment period?

    I’m really interested in trying this again.

    They usually do shampoo my hair and it is a nice treat. I don’t find that I have to redo my adjustment period but it does take about a week to get the texture that I like.

    […] I still do some silly things like cut rubber bands off of broccoli to wrap around soap dispensers, wash my hair with baking soda, etc.  However, I don’t experience guilt over using my dryer or purchasing a magazine on […]
