What are some simple tips that can greatly improve your appearance?(r/AskReddit)
Oddly, I always thought this, and my hair was as a result very dry and hard to manage. It would just do w/e it wanted like hay. (white guy, relatively short hair).
I switched over to “no-poo” which is generally marketed towards women with thick, heavy and wavy hair (Irish redheads and black women from what my Hairstylist told me). It doesn’t lather and has no parabens (w/e that is suppose to mean). I was basically stripping the sebum (natural hair grease from sebaceous glands) from my hair and it was ruining it, but the “no-poo” doesn’t do that.
Now I wash my hair about 1-2 times a week (more if i sweat a lot at the gym) but condition everyday. Worked wonders and it was a huge improvement. It is expensive shampoo, but I use it significantly less, and I got it in bulk from amazon.
Edit: adding links:
www.reddit.com/r/nopoo Apparently there is a sub reddit.
Deva curl site: www.mydevacurl.com/ Makes the no-poo shampoo I use. There is a “low-poo” option as well, which is closer to normal shampoo. Sorta a cross as no-poo is definitely not for everyone. then there is a whole line of other hair stuff beyond my pay grade.
www.amazon.com/DevaCurl-No-Poo-No-Fade-Lather-Clea… This is what i use.
www.wen.com Another no / low poo system.
Be aware ladies, this isn’t for everyone. The shampoo is generally fine, but my girlfriend used the no-poo conditioner once (i dont buy it anymore) and it was very “heavy” and did not add volume.
