No poo challenge

I came across this no poo jol on Huffpost. I love reading about the various Kool Aid people are suckered into drinking from week to week, month to month. Paleo, lchf, TIm Noakes, caulimash, coconut water, you name it. My life is really too short for all these foefies, so I read, take the good bits that makes sense, and discard the rest.

This no poo jol though, has been intriguing. Basically, what the greenies want us to do, is to dump our chemical shampoo& conditioner and use baking soda and vinegar instead. Say what?!

Gangsterism and tik has nothing on how unstable Cape Town will be if you tell coloured chicks we can no longer use Pantene or Wella on our hair. Baking soda and vinegar? Have these people not seen Chris Rock’s Bad Hair? Have they not seen the outcry over Blue Ivy’s hair? Can you imagine what baking soda, vinegar and the famous Cape Town moisture will do to our hair? Nothing Wilfred Solomons-Johannes and his disaster management team have in their arsenal will be able to contain the levels of uprising and rage. This will be a whole new Struggle.

I feel sorry for the planet and my grandchildren, really. I don’t eat dolphin tuna. I eat sustainably. I cry everytime a rhino is killed. I support lots of good causes. But when it comes to my hair, I have to draw a line in the sand. I want lauryl sulphates and all the other chemicals they pump into shampoo. Those of you with wash&go hair are more than welcome to save the planet. The rest of us with hair that needs poo, will pay in another life.
