I was reading a book on how to style curly hair and the author suggested that shampoo is bad for you hair. It dries out curly hair, which already has a tendency to be dry. The dryness then creates frizz. I have suffered with frizzy hair forever and I have tried every product in the store. I want to try this one last thing. She said that the agents that cause lathering are the culprit. Our scalps then overproduce oil to make up for the dryness. I am in for some hell-hair days but per her theory - the scalp will slow down on oil production after a few weeks. I am still going to rinse daily with water and conditioner on the bottom. Maybe twice a week I will then use a baking soda solution or some sort of organic natural shampoo (once I can find one) on the top. You first put conditioner on the bottom before shampooing to protect it. I have been doing a lot of reading about this online and there are a lot of people who swear by it.
I know like everything else I do I will probably be over this fad in a week or two, but I am curious to see if it helps and hope that I won't be totally humiliated with a greasy head of hair.
