The No (Sham) Poo Challenge

Don't worry--we will not be washing our hair with ketchup and mustard;
this is what I use to make my "shampoo" and "conditioner."
We've been talking about being "greener" lately, and in this post about natural personal care items, we talked about using a combination of baking soda and vinegar to wash your hair instead of shampoo. Liz and I have both tried it, and we've hit some bumps in the road, but we're cheerleaders for the whole thing. We've even convinced some of our friends to jump on the bandwagon.

So we're challenging you for the rest of September: 
Put away your shampoo and go green. You'll do your hair, your scalp, your wallet, and the environment a favor.

Here's the deal:
  1. Wash your hair with baking soda and vinegar (the exact recipe is on this page).
  2. On October 1, we'll put up a post asking for your comments. Tell us what you thought, and you'll be entered to win a prize in a random drawing.

What's the prize?
You'll win two bottles to fill with your baking soda/water and vinegar/water solutions, plus a small bottle of essential oil to dress up your vinegar rinse and make it smell delicious.

How do I enter?
Just leave a comment after the post we'll put on on October 1. You'll have one week to leave your comment, and we'll randomly select a winner on October 8. One entry per person (regardless of the number of comments you leave).

What else can I do?
If you write a blog entry about your experience with the No Poo challenge, let us know by leaving a comment on our No Poo Challenge page. We'll link up to your blog on that page. It will be a great way to share tips, comments, and advice about putting away the shampoo.
