My hair is medium thick and takes almost two days to dry. I tend to use a lot of hairspray to set my hair. When I brush out my set it ends up looking dusty and coarse. I learned in order to fix this is to wash out my hair with water on my no-poo days. I do not like to have to do this since that would mean I have no choice but to blow dry my hair in order to re-set it. My scalp ends up becoming so dry, tight, and itchy. For now I use less hairspray and double up on pomade I use the Got 2 be brand it comes in a silver, yellow, and purple package plus the product is white inside. And I have not used a setting lotion instead I have a small spray bottle of just water. I spritz each section of my hair lightly and with a fine tooth comb. Comb the water through my hair to distribute the water evenly and re-set my hair. When I do this my hair comes out fantastic!
I also found two wonderful no-poo how to articles. http://natural-forces.com/essays/poofree.htm
I have completely given up shampoo for good. I am still using a leave in spray on conditioner. Once I run out it I am going to start using the apple cider vinegar rinse. Here is the second article this is the no-poo I am going to use from now on. I keep it in the same bottle it came in but I add 4 drops of tea tree oil and shake to mi,x since I have oily hair. Best thing ever! http://www.veganbeautyreview.com/201...nditioner.html
