hi, i'm no poo for about 10 weeks now and i didn't really care much for the greasiness as i was thinking that it just needs time to get away, but i'm getting slowly worried...i was reading until now, that transition period takes about 6-8 weeks and i'm beyond that but my hair is not getting any better...
i have shoulder long extremely thick (i mean - really REALLY thick) hair with weird waves, so i had kinda always problems to get a normal hair cut. as i like to do experiments and no poo did catch my interest i was determined to try it out. i do use water wash only from the very beginning, didn't use BS or ACV or WV or anything since the beginning. my hair DOESN'T look better than before, it looks..well..it doesn't look greasy, but it doesn't look as fluffy as before and i used to love that previously. now i can't even let my hair down. i hate running my fingers through it as sebum sticks to my fingers and i end up with sticky greyish fingers. the same happens to my comb, i can wash my fingers and my comb of course, but well...i was hoping this would end some day and i would be able to live with wo wash only and without having greasy hair...
i'm lucky to find this community on this page as i found out, that going wo doesn't turn out that well for some people and the greasiness will eventually never go away unless i help it out. i tried to put cornstarch into my hair as sort of dry shampoo today, but my hair is so thick, that it just absorbed the entire cornstarch, didnt do a thing and when i tried to brush it out, nothing happened (except the usual amount of grey sebum)...i would probably have to use the entire package of cornstarch to see some effect :P
so, my question is, if anybody has experience with extremely thick hair and water wash only. i know my questions are very similar to many which have been written here before..but i just didn't find any suitable answer until now..i don't want to use any natural soaps, any soap bars, BC etc...getting back to shampoo is absolutely out of question.
does my hair just need more time? or do i really have to start using some products? we have hard water at home, so this might be one of the reasons...or is it because of my thick hair?
