I bought the vanilla-mint MudPoo as an alternative to harsh shampoos. I previously had researched going 'no poo' with baking soda and apple cider vinegar but decided I couldn't commit to that lifestyle -- plus, I LOVE buying products with fragrances I like, and baking soda just didn't cut it!
I wanted to find a more natural shampoo (and also decrease the frequency that I needed to shampoo) in an attempt to restore the ph balance on my scalp and help facilitate new hair growth since I have fine, thinning hair (due to heart medication).
I knew going into using this product that it wouldn't foam, would be a bit hard to spread around my scalp, and would make my hair straw-like if I didn't condition, so I enjoyed it for what it was - a between-shampoos product that treats my scalp gently, smells and feels awesome, and actually gives my fine, thin hair VOLUME!
If I want volume, I use the MudPoo the night before and don't condition. If I use the MudPoo the day of an event, I deep condition afterwards. My hair routine has gone from shampooing everyday and getting greasy by the end of the day to the following:
Day 1. Shampoo with no-sulfate shampoo
Day 2. Dry Shampoo
Day 3. Wear hair up
Day 4. Mud Poo
Day 5. Wear hair up
Day 6. Shampoo with no sulfate shampoo
This weekend I noticed new hair growth along my scalp line after following this pattern for about a month.
Since I use this only once a week it is lasting me a long time and is worth it. I will definitely repurchase.
