The No Poo Revolution or Movement
This Woman is Poo Free
No Poo Revolution or No Poo Movement
Have you heard about the no poo revolution or movement. This is not to be confused with the no poo diet where you avoid eating Pu Pu Platters from the Chinese restaurant. Just kidding! Imagine an ad saying "Do you not have breast cancer? Pay us $9.95 and we will increase your chances of getting breast cancer so you can get it and be a hero."
Here is No Poo on Wikipedia (wikipedia.org/wiki/No_poo). It says:
The first synthetic shampoos were introduced in the 1930s, with daily shampooing becoming the norm in the US by the 1970s and 1980s. Proponents of "no poo"-practices believe that shampoo removes the natural oils (sebum) produced by the scalp—causing the scalp to produce more oil to compensate. They also believe that regular shampooing causes a "vicious cycle" to develop as it becomes necessary to shampoo regularly to compensate for the excess oils produced by the scalp (which are produced in response to being stripped from the scalp by the previous shampooing).
Apparently the word shampoo is too long or too hard to spell so they call it poo even though there is a slang word poo.One article is called the No Poo Do. Most of the websites do not describe it this way but this is how I first heard about it and it works just as well.
Using shampoo is a physical addiction like smoking. If you try to stop smoking your body will freak out with withdrawal symptoms for about 6 weeks. But then they pass and you are better. The no shampoo revolution or movement is not a sham about poo. It means giving up using shampoo. In its simplest form you just use water instead. Give up shampoo for 6 weeks and your hair will much better and not addicted to shampoo.
I have done this no poo for over a year (only water) and my hair is better than it ever was. It can probably look better with some of the methods that people use on this, but this shows that just water works fine. Shampoo has only been around for 80 years but water has been around over a hundred years.☺
In a capitalistic society the goal of the beauty industry is not to make you beautiful. Its goal is to make money. How do they do it? They get you to give them money so they can be richer and you can be poorer. The first 6 weeks after giving up shampoo, your hair goes through withdrawal symptoms from the cancer causing chemicals (what?). It may get really greasy and filthy dirty like a dirt magnet. Maybe shampoo is a dirt magnet! The more you use it, the more money they make.
I heard about it before it was a revolution but you can look it up and see that it is a revolution now. Instead of using shampoo, you can use a naturally existing substance like your girlfriend's urine if that sounds good to you. You can call it a golden shampoo. Actually what is popular is using baking soda first and then following it with apple cider vinegar.
Note that just using water is the cheapest method. One reason that people are doing this is they can see the damage that shampoo is doing to their hair. They find that their hair looks much better without shampoo.
The other reason is the ingredients they use. A popular lathering ingredient in shampoo is sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) or sodium laureth sulfate (SLES). Here is a website about them. It says:
Shampoos are among the most frequently reported products to the FDA. Reports include eye irritation, scalp irritation, tangled hair, swelling of the hands, face and arms and split and fuzzy hair. This is highly characteristic of sodium laureth sulfate and almost definitely directly related to its use.
Perhaps most worryingly, sodium laureth sulfate is also absorbed into the body from skin application. Once it has been absorbed, one of the main effects of SLS is to mimic the activity of the hormone Oestrogen. This has many health implications and may be responsible for a variety of health problems from PMS and Menopausal symptoms to dropping male fertility and increasing female cancers such as breast cancer, where oestrogen levels are known to be involved.
[Did you notice the mistake above. Keep it complicated to confuse people. I am a detail oriented person and was a chemist. Sodium laureth sulfate is the SLES, not the SLS that is sodium lauryl sulfate.]
So this what I meant earlier that you pay them to give you breast cancer at the same time that their product ruins your hair. This is a huge scam or sham called shampoo. Youtube is loaded with videos about people going sham free and poo free. What is this shampoo practice called? It is called good business. Make people think that they need your product.
More on good business. At one time in Japan, the men never bought diamond rings for women that they got engaged to. Then they did an advertsing campaign to convince them that they needed to. Now they do. A young couple may need that money for other things. But they are supposed to use it to make the diamond industry rich, even though the people who mine for these diamonds are dirt poor.
There are cleansing bars that people can buy instead of soap. The main ingredients of soap are animal fat and lye. People can use just water on hair and skin and use a washcloth. Once I did use a lotion made of only herbs (that you can eat) that worked as a shampoo and a body wash. If you do not like the results of no poo, you can always go back to using or abusing poo.
