I'm actually doing this for my face. I have skin like a 15 year old that lives on junk food. Nothing I do helps, and someone suggested maybe the issue was shampoo. It seems to clean my hair (I have very very baby fine hair, so that probably helps) I'm going to give it 1 month, because apparently that is the life cycle of a pimple.

so I'm washing it in a mixture of water and baking soda. and then rinsing the ends with apple cider vinegar.

Any other recipes or suggestions?

i don't shampoo more than 2x a month and i use baking soda/water mix. i wouldn't use the baking soda more than 1x a week though cause it can really strip your hair. if i am using an actual shampoo conditioner i only use v05 or philosophy 3-n-1.

I have encouraged Carrie to try the TIGI Peace and Love brand

She likes it but I haven't been able to track down any data on it via Skin Deep database or Good Guide yet and she can get it for a reasonable price.

As for herbal shampoos, I will look into my books. Granted, I have little hair so it is not my top priority. ;-)

This thread, while very interesting to me, is pretty old now. :Phishfolk:

i would say the TIGI one is ok -- has a big strike against being enviro friendly by using PEG materia -- two different version in fact and a conditioning quat, also it still uses pretty conventional surfactants (no SLS/SLES though sodium coco sulfate is basically the same thing - they are basically saying their lauryl comes only from coconut sourcing but chemically its identical)... I definitely wouldn't pay $20 a bottle for it though

any of the kiss my face, jason naturals, avalon organics etc are like $10 a bottle and more environmentally friendly

I use dr bronners & only wash my hair 2x a week. I don't love it but I refuse to pay a lot of $$ for shampoo
