That's a good point. I'll stick with the ACV bar from Wildland. I've tried going completely WO but that didn't work, so I'm a low-poo girl now!! It's on Amazon so I think Aussies should be able to buy it.
The best one I've found is the ACV bar from Wildlands. All natural, vegan product that soothes the scalp. It took me about two weeks to adjust to the shampoo, but my itchies are gone and my hair looks great too. I just love it. I get it on Amazon here. Good luck!
There are a few good ones, but the one I'd recommend is the ACV shampoo bar from Wildland Botanicals. It's not a liquid shampoo so there are zero preservatives in it to irritate your scalp. In addition to apple cider vinegar it's got Neem Oil, which really, really helps. Bonus points for good lather and good volume. You can get it on Amazon. Good luck!
Best plan is to use both, and that's my routine now. Niz 2-3 times a week, ACV bar on the off days. You gotta keep the ACV bar DRY between usages. One bar lasts me two months. I get mine on here on Amazon.
I sort of agree. I stopped using Nizoral, and I definitely don't think it's good for daily use. But yeah, that ACV bar helps. It's now on Amazon Prime too (really fucking love Amazon Prime). [link]
The thing about damaged hair is usually once we stop using the silicone laden shampoo/conditioner we're looking at our actual hair. It's damaged sometimes. There are things we can do, like the ACV rinse to help, and oils and such but I think eventually it's probably better to just start cutting off the damaged parts or as much as we can until it's all fantastic healthy hair. I spent a lot of time trying to fix my damaged ends... I wanted my hair long and I didn't want to cut off that last 3 inches. So much time and money. Ugh. Anyway in the meantime, I'm thinking the ACV rinse sounds good, closing the hair shaft etc and some light oils. I like shampoo bars though, I dont know about chagrin valley as I'm an ACV Bar gal but the idea is the same, I presume. Natural ingredients that help your scalp...no sulfates and chemicals etc. If you decide you don't like the chagrin soap check out the shampoo bar I get on Amazon. I like it because it does a great job and I don't have to do the rinse afterwards cuz the acv is in it already. One less thing. :-)
Yes! Once I had a really bad rash that wouldnt go away and my mother in law gave me some and it totally worked in a couple days. (smells like crap though!! Like burnt garlic and peanutbutter, but a little worse) Anyway I use a shampoo bar now with neem oil in it and it's totally healed my scalp. I don't know if its the neem in particular but I love it. Check out this shampoo bar that I get on Amazon. There are no sulfates like Lush has and coconut oil can be drying. The shampoo smells much better than the neem oil, trust me.
The thing about Lush is they have sulfates in most of their shampoos. (even the bars) That stuff will dry your scalp. If you like bars, check out this one that I get on Amazon. Lush used to be much more natural than they are now. They're still better than some but I think the product isnt worth the price. The oils in the ACV bar will leave your scalp nice and healthy. The rest rinses off. Best shampoo I've used.
I that the ACV Bar from Amazon? I use that too. Totally took care of my scalp. I think my hairs getting thicker.
I like the ACV Herbal Shampoo Bar - Its got the Saw palmetto and Nettle which are DHT blockers, Neem oil which is antifungal (which is mostly all keto is) and a bunch of anti inflammatory oils. It's $13.95 on Amazon prime.
Sulfate based shampoos will always strip your hair of its natural oils. I know you said you've tried multiple shampoos but have any of them been really sulfate free? Maybe if you tried something less harsh it would be better. I use this shampoo bar that I get on Amazon but there are a lot of gentle shampoos that might be better. Bobloblaw878 is right. Check out r/nopoo. GL!
I agree that Lush USED to be good, but now they have gone the route of using sulfates to cut costs. Worse than anything I've used too! The one shampoo bar that actually works for me is the ACV bar by Wildland. I get it on Amazon, think it's around 16 bucks.
Nizoral left my hair and scalp fried. Dry and itchy and my hair felt like a fire hazard. It wasnt worth it. I guess it was because I was already sulfate free and it was just too harsh for me. I use a shampoo bar I get on Amazon (I think its also on Etsy). Going sulfate free and I think the addition of all the great ingredients including saw palmetto, nettle leaf and rosemary its turned my hair loss around. I know I'm sensitive to sulfates so this thing is perfect. No rash, or red spots, my scalp is pink and healthy and my hair is really really healthy. Check out the reviews.
I ended up on this shampoo bar that I get on Amazon. It's seriously the best thing Ive done for my hair ever. It's got antifungal stuff in it and it makes my scalp really nice and healthy. My hair is somehow softer but stronger? Cant recommend enough.
Daily washing seems to be ok as long as you're not using something harsh like Nizoral or Head and Shoulders. There are other antifungal shampoos that might work without all the chemicals. I use this that has antifungal properties but doesnt dry my scalp out. I tried Nizoral a while back (scalp issues along with hair loss so...) and it was super drying. My hair was breaking with 2x/week usage. Anyway maybe try something more gentle. I started off using it every day but after using this shampoo I don't need to wash as often. e:formatting
I'm using this now. It's super natural, no ingredients that I don't understand and my scalp is really happy.
I use a shampoo bar that doesnt have any sls involved. Its really helped my itchy scalp. I've heard of some people on this sub that use it once a week and the rest of the time they use whatever they normally use... I use it once a week and the rest of the time is water only. I'm trying to heal my scalp, thinking that maybe the hair will grow better on a pink healthy scalp. Anyway the shampoo works great. check it out.
Have you tried Wildland Botanicals ACV Shampoo Bar? It sounds like it might fit the bill for your routine and needs.
Discovered this through some posts on /r/NoPoo and though I haven’t traveled with it yet to see how it performs in other water sources, it seems to clean well when I use it every 1-2 weeks (and a lot less expensive than my daily co-wash stuff).
Are you buying it on Etsy or Amazon? I'm not in Canada, but don't you guys get free shipping with Amazon Prime? Could help with the shipping cost. Here's the Amazon link.
I used to buy it on Etsy, but now I get it on Amazon. Hard to beat free two day shipping, man.
Have you tried that ACV shampoo bar yet? My scalp was itchy AF and it worked for me. It's on Amazon prime: [link]
Sounds very similar to my situation. The only thing that's helped me is the ACV shampoo bar from Wildland Botanicals. It's on Amazon.
It's also on Amazon. Free 2-day shipping on prime. https://www.amazon.com/Wildland-Botanicals-ACV-Shampoo-Bar/dp/B0759ZNGJS/
Sure. This is the one I use: [link]
Here's the link for the ACV bar. It's on Amazon: [link]
Yeah sure, everyones different. And if you haven't been to r/nopoo then wait to judge - its not about not shampooing. Its about alternatives to harsh detergent/sulfate type shampoos. Most people know you clean your hair somehow. lol Alternatives. To chemical based/crappy cheap shampoos. For instance I use this a couple times a week and it's somewhat natural and has antifungal properties. It doesnt strip my hair/scalp so I don't over produce oil on my scalp. Yes it's subjective. But no one's recommending not ever cleaning one's hair
It helps to switch to sulfate/silicone free shampoos and conditioners. The sulfates will strip your hair making your scalp work harder to moisturize it. (so the theory goes) Hence the oil. So using a less harsh shampoo will help you go longer between washes. I like this one that I get on Amazon. (Its a low-poo option) It washes my hair well but doesnt strip it and I don't need conditioner anymore. I only need to wash every 3 or 4 days now unless I'm using a lot of product. At first I needed to wash every day but after a few weeks it got better and I could go longer between washes.
