When I started 30 for 30 I was a little nervous. What if I ran out of new outfits by the end? What if I forgot to include something that I REALLY needed to wear?
Well kids, today I started a new project and the level of dedication required is going to make 30x30 look like a cake walk. It'll be like going on a cake walk after being lost in a forest for two weeks and having only grass and ants for dinner.
I'm giving up shampoo. (cue the thunder and lightening sound effects)
I've been reading about no shampoo regimins (this and this explain it better than I do), but the basic premise is that we put harsh chemicals into our hair which strip it of its natural oils, then our bodies compensate by producing even more oils, so our hair gets greasier, so we wash it more and it turns into a big greasy cycle that leaves your hair and scalp in a less than optimal state. There are supposedly harmful chemicals in shampoo which are bad for our health and the environment, but I'm doing this out of pure vanity.
So, baking soda and apple cider vinegar are my new shampoo and conditioner. From what I can gather, I'll be a greaseball for two weeks, things will start to balance out around week five, and I'll be looking like Gisele Bundchen after three months. (or at least my hair will)
Wish me luck. And please be kind in future comments - any wet dog comparisons won't be appreciated.
