I’m happy to say I’m completely shampoo free and everything is fine. My previous attempts at home-made shampoo were a quasi-failure, their only success that I realized it was either shampoo or noShampoo. To help me in my quest, I cut my hair pretty short and then just let things go. The end result is that I haven’t used shampoo for at least two and half months and everything is fine. I notice that my hair has it’s own natural cycle of getting greasy and then being fine, which is strange, but ok.
I will see how it goes for a year and take it from there.
