I've just started to gradually go no-poo. While I'm familiar with the basics, the actual practice is completely new to me.
I used to wash my hair every 2 days. What I'm trying to do is gradually spread out my washes. Has anyone else done this? At the moment, I'm currently on every 3 days, and next month I'll be every 4, etc. My shampoo is currently Nature's Gate brand Tea Tree shampoo (no sulfates listed). I also have some Dove shampoo, which I should use up since I'd feel bad about not using it after spending money on it. I'm thinking I should use up the Dove and move onto the more natural tea tree shampoo (which has cut back on my dandruff itch,btw). Correct me if I'm wrong; I'm completely new here.
Has anyone else here done a gradual step away from shampoo? Did you do any rinses between? A year ago, while I was still on conventional shampoos, I tried a chamomile rinse instead of conditioner and my hair felt fantastic. Since then I've heard good things about green tea on hair.
I'm at a loss because, at the moment, I'm struggling with the oily smell, and I think it's coming from a waxy buildup. I think my fine, wavy hair is getting used to not getting as much shampoo otherwise.
