No Poo Update

I started No Poo in October 2013. Here we are 2+ years later and I still love it!
Since I started I had a baby! He was born January 2015. My hair has changed since my pregnancy. During my second trimester, my hair was super dry and wouldn't curl at. all. I started to think maybe not shampooing my hair was starting to fail. Luckily, that wasn't the case. Third trimester, and then after delivery, my hair started to get back to it's new normal.

My hair still doesn't curl like it used to. But it is still very healthy and has grown quite a bit longer.
It has less volume. I'm hoping that returns as I wean my son and it grows back. I did lose some hair about 5 months postpartum, but it didn't come out in clumps like some of my friends described their hair did. I don't know if that's just me, or if it has something to do with my hair care routine.

I wear my hair straight a lot more. One because it doesn't curl like it used to, and two because it's easier to care for. I wash it on day one and let it air dry. Day two I straighten it, and then for the rest of the week, I keep it dry in a shower cap and each morning brush it out, and touch it up with a straightener as needed.

I've also discovered the "Wet Brush". I have the wet brush in the shower. It's magic in getting out tangles. One of my complaints with no poo is that I don't use conditioner, so my long hair gets really tangly. The wet brush glides through and gently gets out tangles.

I use the the "Wet Shine Brush" on my dry hair. It has boar bristles in it, as well as detangling bristles. The best of both worlds! I highly recommend both brushes. I purchased them on Amazon.

So, that's about it! Still love not using shampoo, and I don't think I'd ever go back!!
