No Poo


No Poo in Soft Water

If you’ve been following my blog you know we recently moved to the Mississippi Gulf coast. Everything is in transition while we search for our future farm, including my hair. While my hair generally does well in a humid coastal setting, it does not seem to like the soft water […]


No Poo Convert

I realize you can’t quite see his hair here, but we’re at French Quarter Fest, so his hair was looking good. Looking good! Just a short note for those of you who are considering No Poo. Lots of people are interested in the fact that I don’t pay for high priced […]


Two Months Without Poo

It has been TWO MONTHS since I put shampoo on my head and I feel great. My hair looks good! I need a hair cut and I have a few split ends, but that is because I’ve been letting my hair grow since last summer in preparation for a wedding […]


Day Old No Poo With a Side of Raining Cats and Dogs

This is for all you No Poo fans out there. Day Old No Poo is when I wash my hair and sleep on it, then get it wet again in the morning to reset the curls. This works great because my curls, which are never that frizzy, are even less […]


No Poo Review

I started my No Poo experiment on Monday February 18th. It is now April 1 and I don’t miss my shampoo at all. Other things I don’t miss include: itchy scalp standing in front of 100s choices trying to figure out which chemical concoction to buy frizzy hair spending too […]


No Poo in the Hotel Pool

Ode to No Poo: 22 days

After No Poo, before riding to work. After work commute in the fog and rain. This morning I showered and No Poo’d before work. I rode my bicycle despite the insane humidity/fog and predicted rain. I have to ride, it’s my therapy. Here, as a testament to No Poo, a […]


No Pooing Before a Birthday Party: 19 Days of No Poo

I last No Poo’d on Wednesday, so I could probably go another day between No Poos, except that today I have a birthday party to attend. Having clean, curly hair for a party is always a good idea.  I’m also volunteering at Emerald House today, so maybe I’ll find a […]


Life Without Poo Continues, 2 weeks

So I wish my camera phone could do it justice, but the No Pooresults are still making me very happy.  It has been two weeks since I last used shampoo, and I am not missing it. I just mixed up my second batch of No Poo today, with slightly less […]
