So are you using the True North shampoo every day or every 2-3 days? And if not every day, then do you still rinse with water on the days you don't shampoo? I have very fine, thin straight hair and tried the no 'poo method about a year ago but it didn't work for me. The worst was about 1-2 wks after I started it and it got somewhat better after that but it always felt heavy and looked greasy. Maybe this would work better for me.


Erin - I have been using the shampoo & vinegar rinse every 2-3 days - whenever I take a shower. On the days when I don't shower, I just leave my hair alone. I might fluff it up a bit with my fingers but mostly avoid brushing it because that just makes my hair flat. It's not as curly as the first day, but still wavy. Ashely from True North Organic said that the method works well for all hair types so it might be worth a try!

Sounds like a great find!

I'm currently using a shampoo bar (Etsy store Dress Green) and occasional vinegar rinse and/or conditioner. I sometimes use a styling product too. I also have thick curly hair and wash my hair once a week. I also sometimes rinse my hair with water only mid-week to bring back more curls. I just bought a couple John Masters Organics products to try after reading Non-Toxic Avenger.


Betsy - I've never tried a shampoo bar - maybe that will be my next experiment! I've haven't tried John Masters Organics products either - let me know how they work for you if you try them.

I've tried the no-poo method on and off the past couple of weeks. My hair is super fine and I did find it got pretty lifeless within hours, however my regular shampoo worked even better after so I've been doing the no-poo method once a week or so. I'd love to try a healthier shampoo for everyday, True North sounds like a good option. I love castile soap for everything else!


Susan - I like your plan to do the no-poo method once a week. Maybe the True North Organic shampoo once a week would work for you. It's so interesting to hear what works best for each person's hair and lifestyle - we're all do different!


My daughters hair is just like yours, and she had struggled for years before finding the Generic shampoo for WEN. It is sold at Sallys and she can't stop raving about it, 2 months later. They sell one for colored hair too, and it is reasonable priced. Works the same way WEN works.:o)


Hi Sally - I've never heard of WEN shampoo. What is it?

I think I would be afraid of striping the color out too. I use henna and another non-toxic product for hair color. It doesn't stay in very long as is. I generally wash every other day unless I'm incredibly sweaty from a work out. My super curly hair has turned into a slight wave thanks to childbirth. I've given up on the curls! Sounds like an interesting product Micaela.


Yeah, I'm bummed about the hair color situation Lori. Gotta see if I can find a way to make it work!
