No Poo Journal – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly!

I am a 42-year old woman from Florida who owns a Computer Repair business with my husband of 8 years. We volunteer for an organization that teaches Seniors how to use computers, and we devote about a 100 hours per month to the community in this respect. I do not have time for lavish hair days, hair cuts, spa visits, long lingering baths, I have time to get up, drink my V8 juice, get dressed and leave for work or volunteering. I need a way to maintain my hair that doesn’t take too much time or too much money. I used to color my own hair till I stopped a year ago embracing that fact that at 42 my hair is going gray. I have been told many times that I am “too young” to go gray, but I love it. I was coloring my hair with Henna and while it is amazing beautiful color, it is A LOT of work to maintain and I am quite simply over it. My hair is a dark brown naturally with this awesome patch of gray growing in at my left temple. I am quite proud of it.

If you’ve gone No Poo or W.O.W you know finding what works for you is very important, and most likely, very different from person to person. I have been water only washing for almost two weeks now and I have found the comb is my new BFF.

Unrefined Coconut Oil vs Refined Coconut Oil

I have been using refined coconut oil since my No Poo journey began. I still say it works great and I have no complaints. But I am a girl who loves to smell pretty and I have eliminated perfumes and body sprays and have added essential oils and pure vanilla but I miss those pretty smelling lotions. I miss the way that lotion just absorbs into the skin, HOWEVER , I do not miss the harmful chemicals, dyes and perfumes.
