What is no poo?
Well, first of all, no poo has nothing to do with fibre intake. No poo is a hair movement in which participants choose to eschew good ol' shampoo and conditioner in pursuit of healthier, stronger locks. Though it's currently deemed a fad, not shampooing is only new for some: the natural-hair community has been using alternative methods of hair cleansing for a long time. Natural hair is prone to dryness and breakage, so frequent washing can actually harm the hair.
Currently, those in the no poo camp are skipping shampoo in favour of rinsing their hair with water. But the most popular method is to lather up with a combination of baking soda and apple cider vinegar. These alternative remedies are sulphate free (sulphates are known to fade colour-treated hair). Others also believe that their locks are excessively greasy due to shampoo use. Their logic goes as follows: when you overdo it on facial cleansing, your oil glands produce extra sebum to make up for what you've stripped away (which is why harsh acne treatments can cause breakouts). Similarly, no poo followers are convinced that washing their hair results in stringy strands.
