"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.

    • This is why many of us stick to our own "Trusted Brands" of things we know are safe, and only buy stuff with the offical certification for gluten free. NOTE also in the US they do not HAVE to tell you their facility also processes wheat on the label, just if the actual product contains it in the ingredients. But many will just to avoid legal mumbo jumbo if they somehow have CC issues. Saying the facility also contains/processes wheat is just them covering themselves if people get sick from it.
    • I make my own mini loafs of a simple almond,coconut,apple sauce blend for dense, bland bread gluten free, and have my pastor bless them. I then keep them in the freezer and bring a piece with me for communion.
    • I don't have milk in liquid form any more, so I switched to coconut flavoured milk (rice based) for cereal, really like it. Then I take coffee black which I've also adjusted to. For an occasional treat I'll have a soy latte, tastes a bit nutty but I'm used to it now and it's as much about the visual treat of sitting in a coffee shop with a big milky coffee anyway. The last time I had a real milk latte I got some huge spots a day or so later on my chest and that was the clearest signal that milk and my skin weren't a good mix. What I haven't done is stop eating products that have milk listed as an ingredient. If I do that I lose so many of the nice gluten-free replacements  biscuits ice cream etc. I know I could try and get dairy free, but it's expensive and difficult to find. So maybe I should try doing that and see how I go... It's funny, a few years ago I used to have a 'healthy'  breakfast of porridge, milk, with a big spoon full of wheat bran for fibre which I convinced myself I needed for digestion. I used to feel pleased with myself for having a good start to the day when I subsequently found it was the worst combination of foods I could possibly have devised. I think If I ate that right now I'd explode!
    • I and many others here have been there and sympathise! Keep on keepin' on, it won't be long now before you can start feeling better. In the meantime, if there's a cheesecake, pastry etc that you want to say goodbye to, now's the time...
    • I'm not Catholic but I remember reading an article about gluten-free host wafers. Looks like this church has developed some guidelines you could show to your priest? https://www.dioslc.org/ministries/disabilities/holy-communion-for-people-with-celiac-disease
