DRagonfly, I use baking soda and then a vinegar rinse. That seems to get the balance straight.

I did this exactly today!! :) BUT the baking soda shouldnt be used to often in my opinion as it kind of makes my hair dry which i dont like because them my hair my over compensate on making more oils to make up for the lost oils...However i love my ACV as i use it only once a week to keep my hair soft and clean, better than conditioner in my opinion, way betttter :)

Why the down vote? This makes total sense. Her hair is fine while using shampoo, she switches to no-poo and her hair starts to fall out. It has to be the shampoo's fault! It cannot be the fault of a paleo dogmatic principal

you can steep some nettles tea and mix in a little activated charcoal and soak the hair and scalp in this, really helps with flake. rinse that out and then rinse through some apple cider vinegar, let that set on the scalp for a while, then rinse that out. or just use head & shoulders, hehe

No poo is not for everyone. I started getting dandruff and an extremely oily scalp after no poo that went away the second I put some Head & Shoulders on my head.

I can't see how the baking soda is doing this.
I dump some baking soda into a cup, put some water in and mix it up. Then I put that in my hair.
At that point my hair feels really slick, and it is easy to comb through it. I use my fingers to rub my scalp, comb my hair out, and then wash all the baking soda water out of my hair. Then I mix apple vinegar and water and put that in my hair. I let this sit for a little while. The slight acidity of it is supposed to smooth out the hair shaft. Then I rinse that out completely too.

Sometimes, especially in winter, my hair can feel too clean from this treatment, so I often just use water.

If you are having serious hair loss problems you might want to look into other possible causes. Have you changed a lot of things? Has your diet changed dramatically too? Is it possible you might have some thyriod issues? It might just be a coincidence.

I found that I was losing more hair when I use shampoo. I brush my hair before I get into the shower to prevent clogging the drain. If I wash with regular shampoo my hair starts shedding in the shower. I've not had the problem with baking soda. I've had more of problem with my hair getting too clean.

I suggest going to some form of mild shampoo for a month and see if the hair loss stops. (Think: elimination diet for hair) If it does, it's most likely the baking soda. If it doesn't. See you doctor. This may or may not be a coincidence.

I am doing no poo as well! And I have noticed the same thing with my hair falling out a lot, but I have noticed that too happen around summer time anyway, like "shedding" so maybe it is a coincidence.

Instead of baking soda, a few times I have made an egg and honey hair mask that I put on my hair for about a half an hour, and then I just rinse it out really well, then use conditioner. It seems to work as well!

Also, I don't know how long you have been doing no poo, but it takes about two weeks for your hair and scalp to get used to the change, so that could be it.

I mean, cave woman and woman from the 1920s were definitely not bald, so it cannot be the fact that you are not using shampoo.

I had great thick beautiful hari but thought I would try "no Poo" also. I did it once not so great second time it was nice and the 2 subsequent times terrible.I also noticed my hair falling out more than normal. I was washing like every 2-3 days as I normally would. I am back on shampoo and still my hair is falling out today a lot more than normal. so I don't think my roots are suffocating. I eat well, add flax, b12, etc... Any one else from no poo?

No Shampoo is WHY your hair is falling out. The oils on your scalp are suffocating your hair roots and causing them to die. Start washing your hair and it will stop falling out.

instead of baking soda just a little dr bronners to sudz it up and get rid of the excess oils. try to get this near the scalp and hair line, use a little squirty bottle if necessary. rinse that out and then rinse your hair with a bit of diluted apple cider vinegar. hairs ph is supposed to be a little acidic. it sounds counter intuitive but the ACV will make your hair feel silky and less tangled. make sure you rinse the ACV out really well.

You shouldn't use it everyday. You should only use it once a week.
