Argan Oil for Shiny Hair

I have been using Argan oil for many months now and I must say I have seen a huge difference. I have not been kind to my hair over the years. I have colored, bleached, heat styled, flat ironed and subjected my hair to more Florida sunshine than you can imagine. Getting on in years, I have realized, its all of these things that make it necessary for me to use so much product trying to hide the damage.

When going No Poo, the goal is to allow our hair to produce its natural oils and maintain itself. A benefit of the No Poo method, is washing less frequently while having clean, healthy hair.

After doing my No Poo Saturday research I have found the most delicious way to combat oily roots while maintaining fresh No Poo'd hair.

Using Indian Herbs for healthy hair

This has been an interesting process. I have tried Shikakai powder, Amla powder, and Brahmi powder.

It takes some experimenting. It feels weird, very, VERY weird. Imagine going out in the yard and grabbing a handful of dirt adding water to it, until it becomes a thick paste and adding this mixture to your wet hair. NOT A PRETTY PICTURE!

What I will tell you is its worth the effort.
