An essential part of the No-Poo regime is the use of a Boar Bristle Brush. The Boar Bristle Brush (BBB) is excellent at cleaning your hair as well as redistributing the natural oils down the length of the strand so the oil is not concentrated at the roots, making your hair look greasy.
I have been doing No-Poo for two and a half years with great success. Check out my other No-Poo related articles by clicking on the ‘No-Poo’ Page at the top.
With all the redistributing of oil, it is natural for your brush to get greasy and will need to be cleaned.
Step 1: Gather your Boar Bristle Brush, your standard brush and your comb.
Step 2: Take all the hair out of your comb.
Step 3: Use the comb to scrape out the hair and debris from your brushes.
Step 4: Fill your sink with warm water and hand soap.
I have been nervous about this homesteading adventure; making my own hand soap. Why? Because of the smell! No-no, not the smell while making it, but of how to infuse or get a nice smelling hand soap while making it at home.
I have always liked going to my friends’ houses and they have the fancy Bath & Body Works hand soaps. They smell AMAZING, but I have to wonder what the fragrances are actually made out of. Most fragrances are now conjured up in some science lab. There is no way a pomegranate in real life smells as strong as the fragrance they put in their soaps!! PLUS, I could never bring myself to pay that much for hand soap.
Good news, Dr. Bronner’s makes a castille soap that is gently scented with natural ingredients, so the soap still smells good without being overpowering. Check it out here for all their soaps Dr. Bronner’s Ingredients.
