: Trying no poo and having some setbacks
Hi everyone! I've been a lurker here for a long time and I've been trying to do the no-poo method for several months now. I got a new cut with lots of layers to hopefully enhance my waves and I can see some improvement in definition when I compare pics from now and right after starting the no-poo (pics in my signature show this, though its hard to see because they're so small).
Unfortunately I keep having setbacks where I need to use shampoo (sulphate-free) at least once a week because my hair is very oily and very fine. I'm a 2C, by the way, with thicker hair in the back and finer, straighter hair around my face. It annoys the heck out of me that it's not the same thickness and waviness all over my head. Seems like the longer I go without shampooing the straighter and flatter it gets. I don't generally have a problem with frizz. My hair was straight most of my life until the past few years when it suddenly got much wavier and I'm doing my best to learn how to deal with this hair!
