I Don't Shampoo My Hair

No shampoo required! 14 People

    ...but It's Still Clean.

    I have been doing the no shampoo method off

    and on for almost 2 years. we travel a lot and packing little shampoo and conditioner bugs me. So packing baking soda and apple cider vinegar annoyed me to no end. I now don't use anything on my hair but rinse is with water almost every day and brush it with a boar bristled...
