'No Poo' and Sustainable Hair Care

Since I’ve had children and ceased to have two milliseconds to rub together my lovely locks, which to date had been trouble free and well behaved, started to resemble the back end of neglected ewe more times that not. I despairingly trying everything from expensive hair treatments to a multitude of different hair styles. Nothing worked so I resigned myself to tying my hair up in a pony tail for the rest of my life.

As part of my journey to zero waste I encountered shampoo bars and hoped that they might offer the solution, but alas you can read all about my dismal experience with shampoo bars on the blog. Then I heard about low-poo and no-poo (I know the terms doesn’t do itself any favours). This week's post is my experience of that process plus some tips on greening your haircare routine.
