I have been trying to no-poo for about a month now - with not very good results. My hair is long, thick and naturally wavy. I only color about once a year so not over-processed. After I no-poo my hair is dry, unmanageable and has a waxy build-up at the back of my head. I have been using 1Tbl BS with 2 cups water and rinsing with 1 TBL ACV with 2 cups water. My hair normally falls out but when I use the no-poo process it falls out by the handfuls. The rate of hair loss is alarming. I want to continue the no-poo process but want to keep my thick hair. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
