Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner & Homemade No Poo Shampoo Recipes
I’m obsessed with my hair. It’s my crowning glory, the way I express my feelings, and something I take pride in. I’m constantly looking at hair styles on Pinterest, obsessing over different cuts and colors, and I buy a new shampoo every few months.
What is No Poo Shampoo?
The name “No Poo Shampoo” sounds horrible, but it just means the solution doesn’t foam and lasts for a long time. In fact, you can keep your hair looking fresh and bouncy for under $5 a year (it is only pennies for a big bottle of Homemade No Poo!). If you try to buy a No Poo from Sephora you’re going to be paying $20 for a 12 ounce bottle.
Going No Poo could change your life. Shampoos are full of dehydrating agents and toxic chemicals. In fact, until the 1930s women didn’t use shampoo. Consumerism drove companies to start making shampoo and convinced us that we need it to make us desirable and to smell heavenly.
DIY No Poo for Curly Hair
The thing is that our hair needs the oils it produces. When we shampoo, we strip the oils and it causes our hair to work over time to replace them. For curly hair, this means that you get frizzy to the max. The good thing is that dermatologists approve the No Poo movement.
Homemade No Poo Shampoo Recipe
This will be the easiest thing you can ever make.
DIY Natural No Poo Recipe Ingredients:
- 2 cups water
- 8 tablespoons baking soda

How to Make No Poo
For the shampoo, just put the water and baking soda in the bottle and shake it up! If you find that your Homemade No Poo Shampoo separates over time, you can try boiling the water first before mixing in the baking soda.
Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner Recipe
Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner Spray Ingredients:
- For the Conditioner
- 1 cup Apple Cider vinegar
- 64 ounce recycled bottle
How to Make Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner:
Put the vinegar into the 64 ounce bottle and fill the rest of the bottle with water. Shake to mix very well. When using this, focus on the roots. The Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner should go just on the ends of your hair or rinsed over your entire head. When starting, stick to just the ends, because your hair might get too oily.
How to Use No Poo Shampoo
No you may think that, just like other shampoos, your hair will adjust almost immediately. Not true with No Poo. Your hair will need a bit of time to adjust, so plan on using this time to try out updo’s, french braids, and hats. Your hair may be oily or dry, but in time – about a month or so – your hair will get soft and bouncy.
