Voilà – one year with No Poo method

Give your hair a break, by washing it with natural alternatives. Here’s how my naturally blonde, Scandinavian hair has responded to one year of usage with the ancient Aleppo soap.

No poo simply means the method of washing your hair without shampoo and substituting it with traditional and chemical-free formulas, in this case hair soaps. In this post, I walked you through how to wash your hair with the ancient and natural Aleppo soap, combined with an herbal infusion. This method has been a real crafting experience, because of the fine technique you will need to use with your hands to get it right. The first couple of months may be a period of transition because the hair needs to detox from many years of chemical use. However, coming out on the other side of the process is nothing but a Eureka moment! 

Here’s a quick summary of its wonderful properties.

For all skin types

The soap is a pure natural remedy, and due to its softening properties of the olive- and laurel oil, it will comfort the most sensitive skin. The laurel oil is an effective cleanser that together with the olive oil helps to nourish and purify the face, body, and hair. It is a universal product with antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-blushing, calming, and soothing properties.

A clean alternative to traditional shampoo

Aleppo soap is a natural product and should be preservative-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, palm oil-free, and not tested on animals. 

Zero Waste for all Earth Warriors

The soap is friendly to both humans and earth and allows you to cut down on toxic shampoo ingredients, plastic waste, and at the same time keeps your hair feeling soft, healthy, and hydrated with nourishing ingredients. 

“Zero Waste is a goal that is both pragmatic and visionary, to guide people to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are resources for others to use. Zero Waste means designing and managing products and processes to reduce the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them. Implementing Zero Waste will eliminate, all discharges to land, water, or air that may be a threat to planetary, human, animal or plant health.” 

The natural hair wash routine covers the full ritual of an ordinary hair wash, from cleansing soap to nurturing herb infusion to maintain the pH balance.
