Years of baking soda no ‘poo caused severe damage and extensive breakage to my hair. Gentle and moisturizing hair products, along with lots of time, have restored my long, healthy hair after the no ‘poo disaster.
Remember my story of severe hair damage from longterm baking soda no ‘poo hair washing? I never would have imagined that it would take off like it did when I wrote it a couple of years ago.
I get so many comments and emails from ladies (and a few gents) who experienced the exact same brittle, breaking hair that I did. Though some no ‘poo enthusiasts are still convinced I just did it wrong, I think most of us have realized that the whole baking soda no ‘poo craze was an awful, horrible natural living disaster.
And it has left a lot of us wondering what to do now that the damage is done.
I’m glad to report that the damage my hair suffered from baking soda no ‘poo wasn’t permanent. My hair has recovered, and though I still have to give the ends lots of TLC, it is quite healthy once again. By using a natural and moisturizing hair care line and sticking with other gentle styling habits, I feel like I have my long, healthy hair back.
