Okay guys, I'm hoping someone can help me.
As the title of my post suggests, this is day 18 of no pooing for me. I have very coarse and thick wavy hair. So far, my no-poo routine has been going great. It was pretty greasy for the first week, as to be expected. Then, right around day 12 (I've been keeping notes!) The greasiness went away and I had great hair; my waves were more defined and everything. Well, yesterday I started noticing some flaking when I parted my hair. Today when I woke up, it was BAD. I usually wear my hair half up/ half down to work, but pulling it back revealed some serious snow flakes! I did a vinegar rinse and a cowash, to no avail.
My routine thus far has been pretty standard. I wet/condition my hair every day with Suave naturals coconut. About every two or three days I cowash. I was cowashing daily in the beginning, but I cut back because I didn't think it was necessary. I don't use any styling products besides a little extra suave condish that I leave in my hair from my shower. I air dry a few times each week, but usually blow dry for work.
Any ideas? Am I just one of those wavies who needs to poo every once in a while?
Any help would be appreciated!
Oh, I should probably add that I've NEVER had dandruff before in my life, which is why this is so weird for me.
