• Spending too much money on hair products that don't work
  • Your hair doesn't look anything like the commercial promised
  • Dry, damaged, lifeless hair
  • Spending too much time getting ready and still ending up with a bad hair day 
  • Using toxic ingredients that damage your hair - not nurture it


Truth is, you don't need all those fancy hair products to have healthy hair. Natural, nourishing, healthy ingredients are what make natural, nourished, healthy hair. You can find everything you need in your kitchen! It's called the "no poo" method; as in no shampoo.


  • There are an average of 15 toxic chemicals in a bottle of commercial shampoo. These chemicals have been linked to cancer, allergies, fertility problems, autoimmune disorders, and hormonal disturbances.
  • Commercial shampoo as we know it wasn’t first used until the early 1930s. Before that, everyone used the no poo method.
  • The No Poo Method works with the oil your hair naturally produces instead of working against those oils.
  • People that use The No Poo Method use fewer products, spend less time styling, and go longer between washes.
  • The cost savings are huge! The No Poo Method uses inexpensive, easy to find ingredients.



When people find out that I am a no poo-er, they usually give me a confused (and sometimes disgusted) look then ask, “But why???”

There are 3 main reasons why people choose the no poo method:bird_new2

  1. To avoid toxins in commercial products
  2. For the simplicity of the routine: fewer products, less time styling, going longer between washes, etc.
  3. For the cost savings: the majority of the products used for no poo are inexpensive compared to commercial hair products.

I started no poo to get rid of the toxic chemicals that were in my hair products. But I very quickly realized the simplicity of the routine and the cost savings were amazing added bonuses.


ashlee1I was on an endless surgery cycle (or at least it seemed that way), was in pain, and was not healthy. So I started researching natural alternatives. And you know what I found?

Pain is linked to inflammation. Inflammation is linked to synthetic chemicals and toxins. So I started detoxing.

I started with my diet. And I started feeling better. Then I got rid of toxic cleaning products. And I started feeling better. I was on a roll! I wanted all the toxins out of my house.

And the more toxins I removed, the better I felt and the healthier I was. That brings me to no poo.

I started to look at the toxins in hair products. I started to use natural commercial shampoos and products. They were ok. My hair didn’t love them. And they are expensive. I decided to give no poo a try. My hair is healthier, thicker, and shinier than ever!


Dry, damaged, and frizzy hair (and of course, too many highlights!)




When I first started no poo, the process appeared easy. A little baking soda, a splash of vinegar, and voila! my hair would be awesome!

But it’s not that simple.

  • Too much baking soda and you could end up with dry damaged hair.
  • Too little vinegar and you could end up with frizzy hair.
  • The baking soda and vinegar method is just one of many, many no poo methods and does not work well with all hair types.
  • And don’t even get me started on hair porosity. 

The No Poo Method walks you through every step of the process. From discovering your hair characteristics so you can create a unique routine designed for your hair needs to trouble shooting. This book will empower you to find a natural hair care routine that works for you.

During the last few years, I have done extensive research about the no poo method. And I have tried countless DIY recipes on my hair. I have talked to hundreds of no poo-ers to find out what works for different hair types. I have compiled all of that information into one informative book to help you transition into the amazing world of no poo.
