Natural shampoo methods

This is by far the most popular no poo method and combination. This is how I started no poo (you can read all about that here ).

Specialty shampoos are available for people with dandruff , color-treated hair, gluten or wheat allergies, an interest in using an "all-natural", " organic ", " botanical " or "plant-derived" product, and infants and young children ("baby shampoo" is less irritating). There are also shampoos intended for animals that may contain insecticides or other medications to treat skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas.

Eight months ago I decided to try a radical experiment in  natural hair care: I ditched the shampoo . It was a bit like jumping off a cliff (and I’m so  not  a fan of heights) but I decided that there was nothing to lose, so I jumped. And four months later as I look back, I realize that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Four months in to No Shampoo (often called “No-Poo” on the web) and my hair is so healthy that I have decided to make my experiment permanent: I will never go back to shampoo.

If your pup just had a heyday in a mud puddle or needs a bath ASAP, you don’t have to run out and purchase special dog shampoo. This all natural recipe will get your canine clean as a whistle (or as clean as he can be) without using harsh chemicals or dyes. Also great if your pet has allergies or aversion to certain chemicals.

Other products attempt to disrupt the reproductive systems of the lice, which may impede their ability to produce eggs—but the bugs themselves will remain alive.

Chemicals in hair dye have been linked to a variety of very harmful effects. The use of hair dye has been linked to cancer, allergic reactions, and respiratory disorders. You also have to be careful of hair dyes marked as “natural” because they even contain hazardous chemicals such as resorcinol, ammonia or peroxide, and PPD, even if it is a reduced amount. PPD damages the DNA of human cells and often causes allergic reactions. Evidence has shown that those who use hair dye are at an increased risk of developing Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia.

Hey Elaine D! I know what you mean about your scalp needing cleansing before your hair does. Thanks for sharing your technique :)

This method is ide­al for hair that is kinky curly or hair with a high lev­el of shrink­age when wet. By keep­ing hair most­ly dry, it becomes eas­ier to han­dle as fur­ther shrink­age does not occur and the hair remains in its strongest form. The dry detan­gling method does have to be used alongside fin­ger comb­ing because combs and brush­es can be too aggres­sive on dry hair. This method requires small sec­tions and a lot of patience so if you are not will­ing to work on your hair for sev­er­al hours or even a day depend­ing on length, it would be bet­ter to pick either of the next two meth­ods.

Your best approach to flea treatment will always be to start with the least toxic and most natural choices available. Natural flea control methods and products provide a safer alternative to chemical insecticides. If you cannot reasonably control fleas with this "safer" approach, then consider stronger measures. However, even natural treatments can be harmful to your kitty if not used properly.

These are natural colors and as such will create natural hues on your hair. They will not create artificial colors like hot pink, completely platinum blonde, or jet black (ok, so that isn’t a fake color, I just haven’t figured out how to do it…) The blonde/light recipes will actually permanently lighten hair since they naturally bleach it but the red and dark hues will leave a temporary tint for a few weeks (depending on how often you wash it). The sun will help set all the hues.

Earwigs
Diatomaceous earth is a safe and effective way to control earwigs in the home. One application in key spots (bathroom, baseboards, window frames) can be a long-term repellent.

To trap earwigs, spray a newspaper lightly with water, roll it up loosely and secure with a string or rubber band. Place on the ground near earwig activity. The next morning pick up and discard the paper in a sealed container.

Another method to trap earwigs is to take a shallow, straight-sided container and fill it half full with vegetable oil. Clean the trap daily; the oil can be re-used.
