"no Shampoo"

I wash my hair with an egg yolk instead of shampoo!! i've been shampoo free since april last year, i personally gave up shampoo because my hair was a mess, it was all poofy and frizzy, very tangled and looked horrible, it also fell a lot. Now i know many of those problems may have been caused by gluten, or who knows what, but washing it with eggs helped a lot! it's so simple, i only use the egg yolk on my scalp, let it there for some minutes (3 or 4min) and then rinse it with cold or cool water (not warm or the egg will get cooked)

sometimes i do a vinegar rise or essential oil rinse so it gets a nice smell, but the egg itself, if well rinsed, doesn't leave any ewww smell.

I do egg washes too, sometimes! It's funny that you warned about not rinsing in hot water. I did that the first time. Needless to say…I had scrambled eggs in my hair for the rest of the day. Lol.

I used to use protein products. Since I gave up all products I've missed that. I don't have it in me to do a cool shower in the winter, but at least I know I have a solution in the spring.

 

Also, I cut my hair off shoulder length like a week or two ago. (Which is super short for me.) Things still seem to all be in order. I'm thinking it's time to add herbs to my rinse again so I can get dark highlights for the winter. I'm just trying to decide if I want to go mild or go all the way and do walnut powder.

It's not necessary that you use only cold or cool water, you can use warm water too (i dont shower with cold water in winter, brrr!!! xD ) just make sure it's not scalding :)

My winter showers are generally hot enough to turn me pink. :ph34r: It isn't particularly toasty in the house and I don't get to control the thermostat, but what I can control is my shower temp. It's a rare occasion that I heat style or blow dry so I think I'll make it to spring when cooler showers are my norm. :)

So, update on this. I did the baking soda/vinegar thing for about two months. At first, it was great! My hair was healthy and shiny and I loved it. But as time went on, it got clumpy and greasy and nothing seemed to help. I REALLY wanted no shampoo to work for me, but it just didn't. I tried homemade stuff with castile soap, but that left my hair a grease ball as well, so I'm back to organic, natural shampoo. Sigh.

    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.            
    • I think this site is a far better source of info and support than any of the Facebook groups I've seen. Its certainly been a great help to me. I found that too much web surfing on some other sites including Facebook just made things more difficult, there are either sites pushing commercial solutions with little real scientific grounding or there are often well meaning people with particular axes to grind offering dubious advice.  I stopped visiting those sites finally as they just added to the climate of fear and anxiety around diet and health. If your journey is any way like mine, you'll find that things get much better, both in terms of adapting to the diet and also in your general health and well being. The first weeks are hard but as you learn to read labels, know which are your safe products and make sure you are completely gluten free then your body will do the rest.  
    • Looks like this soup does contain gluten: https://www.chilis.com/docs/Chilis-Allergen-Generic.pdf The page that lists gluten free options does not show the enchilada soup as being gluten free (scroll down a few pages).  
    • Okay, you ordered it online.  What does the ingredient label say?  I did not even know they made a canned or packaged soup?  Or did you order online and picked it up at the restaurant?   Maybe there is no gluten at all.  Maybe they only use masa flour (corn) as the soup base.  
    • I ordered it online and it was an accident. The store is now closed and the internet is not offering any solutions. The customer service helpline is useless.
