No poo for two years

I haven't used shampoo in over two years and my hair has never been better. Its fuller, thicker and silkier than it ever been but above all else its finally growing. This has lead to me ditching weaves for a while and actually taking the time to enjoy my natural hair and experiment with wearing it down, up and just having fun with it.
I know what you are thinking. But Issie doesn't it get dirty and the honest answer is No! Shampoo is harmful to you hair. It is a detergent and like most detergents it not only cleans but it stripes you hair of everything including the good and natural oils that keep your hair shiny,strong and soft.
A few years ago I kept hearing talk of the no poo movement and the more I read into it the more I felt that this was something I simply had to try. I never wore my natural hair out and after years of relaxing it, is was damaged and refusing to grown.At the time I decided to get the big chop and grown my hair natural and after a year and a half natural (whilst doing the no poo) I relaxed it and never looked back. Today my hair is shinny healthy and so easy for me to manage that I wish I had gone no poo earlier.
Hair routine:
  1. I have a pamper session Saturday night for my hair and this is the only time that I actually wash it as well. I normally just wash it with water first then I put in my Argon oil Hair Mask which I leave on for half an hour.
  2. I follow on with my Argon oil condition which I leave on for 10 mins and then to reduce heat damage I let me hair dry naturally . 
  3. When its semi-dry I rub in some Argon oil and coconut oil, concentrating on my scalp.
  4. I will then use my GHDs to straighten it a bit and that it for the week.(Using some Argon Oil heat defence) Yes I love me some argon oil.
Please be aware that I am not a hair stylist and am only sharing what I think and what has worked for me. If you do decided to go 'no poo' them please let me know how you get on.

I will talk to y'all soon.

Love ya
