Dear Shampoo...

I miss you.

It's been 3 weeks since we broke up. 

At first, it was great. 
I was so excited and enthusiastic about
joining the 'No Poo' movement and leaving you behind. 
The first two weeks were new and exciting, 
and Baking Soda and Vinegar were taking good care of me. 

Don't you get too excited. 
I'm not ready to run back to you quite yet. 

And I know, they told me the transition period would be tough. 
I've been dependent on you for my whole life, 
so, naturally, ditching you was not going to be easy. 

But I miss your bubbles. 
I miss your smells and soft silkinesses. 
But my research has shown that you're full of harmful chemicals
and my head's dependency on you is causing
an excess of oily drama. 

I don't plan on ever going back to you, 
and I'm hoping that my new relationship with 
Baking Soda and Vinegar 
will last forever. 

Hair's hoping, 


  1. it's soooooooo hard. every morning, i wake up and think, "This is the day I'm going to use shampoo again" and then I don't. and then I still feel sad!

  2. I hope it will help your health :)When it's terrible to carry it through, then it's probably giving worthwhile results!

  3. I've been wanting to try this for a while now. Keep us updated on how it goes!

  4. Kudos to you for sticking to it. I love my chemicals. I don't think I could give them up.

  5. I haven't tried the baking soda part but the vinegar works wonders for ma hair since I have gone natural! *high five* to you for going natural! *smile*

  6. Have you tried the "no poo" shampoo...that isn't shampoo?? Alright this comment doesn't make sense - but does it have to be baking soda and vinegar -- what about smelling like vinegar?
    I am very interested to see how this goes...

  7. Are you not using shampoo anymore at all? Just BS and vin? WOW girl! What about some natural and organic shampoos? Or do you have a post that you already wrote about this!? LOL I have some catching up to do, I adore you!

  8. What else are you cutting out? Just shampoo? I'm intrigued...

  9. Dude--I've been doing this for a year and I love it. But I use lemon juice and water instead of vinegar...not as smelly. :)
