I wash my hair every time I get in the shower... I just don't use shampoo or conditioner. I don't usually use baking soda either... just water, then a diluted vinegar rinse. My thin, fine hair does not smell, look greasy or dirty or flat; it is not fly-away or static-y. It has shine and a lot more body than when I used commercial products.I don't think the no-poo at all thing could work for me, I dye my hair and it is way too thin to go without washing. Plus, i like washing my hair. Who doesn't like to wash their hair?
The problem with commercial products is that shampoos tend to overclean hair so you need conditioner to replace what's been stripped. Plus conditioners tend to be heavy on hair and and the silicones attract dust and dirt, causing hair to look dirty more quickly, so you need to rewash more frequently.
Breaking the shampoo cycle normalizes your scalp, but there is the break-in period; sea salt is supposedly kinder to hair better than baking soda.
I want to try honey "shampoo": 1 Tbsp honey dissolved in 3 Tbsp water.
Some no-poo sites:
The following link has an arrowroot/cocoa powder dry-poo recipe that looks interesting, though I'm a little reluctant about using cocoa, being a blonde. lol
