Today is a special day worth popping a bottle of sparkling wine open. I have finally uploaded my first YouTube video!!! I spent around a week working on it round the clock and I have to admit I have soooo much respect for all the YouTubers now. It’s a damn difficult job to prepare, record and edit a video.
So, here it is, my first baby is finally in the air. I’m not entirely happy with it and I would do it quite differently now. I was camera shy and didn’t show my real personality as much as I wanted, and then my husband watched it and said: “You could have been more cheerful…”. Grrrrr, I know, I know, he’s perfectly right but it was my first one and I was just focusing so hard on making sure that I said everything that I needed to say.
However, dwelling on the past is not constructive and I’d rather focus on my next one (and it’s going to be fun), so I promise I will try much harder!
So, let’s go back to the no-poo method. I have touched on more or less everything that’s important in the video. However, I believe it’s very important not to over-wash your hair. Baking soda can be quite drying if used more frequently than once a week. For example, I wash using the complete no-poo method every 7-8 days and in between, if my hair gets oily after an extremely hot day or after a wild workout, I simply massage my scalp with warm water and rinse it with the vinegar rinse.
I really hope that I’ll be able to inspire someone in the world to try the no-poo method and get a step closer to a primal lifestyle. Trust me, it’s all worth it when you start seeing positive changes in your body, and, of course, in your wallet! 🙂
Next week I’ll be back with another video. This time I am going to start the Paleo / Primal Diet Essentials series by showing you what’s in my fridge.
