A few months ago I made this post about how I was going no poo, and why you should, too!
I admittedly didn't go completely no poo, and still haven't. However, in the time since I made that post I have changed my weekly routine quite a bit - all thanks to one amazing product.
BIG Shampoo is made by Lush Cosmetics. I randomly walked into their store in Tucson and started looking around. It was during the time when I was trying really hard to treat my hair better, so when I saw all of their hair products, I couldn't help but take a look.
BIG was the first shampoo I saw and after reading the description I knew I had to have it.
This is the description about the shampoo taken from their website:
"Over half the base of Big shampoo is made with sea salt, giving massive volume to hair in need of a boost. Sea salt is also full of minerals and de-greases hair, removing dead skin cells and dirt without stripping natural oils for a fresh, squeaky clean feeling. We balance the sea salt with seaweed infusion, extra virgin coconut oil and avocado butter for soft, nourished locks. Finally, fresh citrus juices are squeezed in for incredible shine."
The only reason I almost didn't buy this is because it's a little pricey. Well, honestly it's not...it is worth all the money it costs, however I am cheap and spending $27 on a thing of shampoo nearly gave me heart attack. But buy it I did, and I have never regretted it for a second. It works incredibly, allows me to wash my hair without feeling guilty since it isn't stripping my natural oils, and smells amazing.
So here is my weekly routine:
Sunday.// Wash my hair with regular shampoo (the cheapest I can find on the shelf).
Monday&Tuesday.// If needed I use dry shampoo, but I usually don't need it.
Wednesday.// Wash my hair with BIG shampoo (and relish in its awesomeness).
Thursday-Saturday.// Use dry shampoo when needed, usually on Saturday and Sunday before I wash my hair.
The reason I only use the BIG shampoo once a week is because it's expensive, and I'm trying to make it last as long as I can. Also, it is a little hard to make sure it lathers my entire scalp, and therefore my scalp still gets a little itchy, but using regular shampoo just once a week fixes that problem! There are definitely more natural fixes to itchy scalps, such as a this one, and maybe once my shampoo is all gone I'll consider changing my routine again!
Currently in my medicine cabinet is TRESemme's Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo but honestly I don't really like it. I got it just to see if I would like it more but I definitely still stand by Suave's Dry Shampoo! It works better for me and is also cheaper, which is always a plus!
