Why You Need It
Traditional shampoo can be too harsh for curls. That’s why we made No-Poo Original! The non-lathering formula with peppermint and grapeseed oil gently cleanses without stripping the natural oils your curls need. Plus, it provides essential moisture so your curls can be shiny, bouncy and just plain gorgeous. No wonder it’s our best-selling cleanser!
“Make sure you apply No-Poo Original directly to your scalp, add more water, and really scrub it in. Do the same scrubbing motion when rinsing to thoroughly cleanse.”
Pair It With
no-poo original 101
Traditional shampoo can be formulated with harsh ingredients such as sulfates that can strip your curls of the essential oils they need. Sulfates are also what provides traditional shampoo with lather. No-Poo Original is formulated specifically for curly hair with good-for-you ingredients (and without those harsh ingredients) to keep your curls moisturized and healthy-looking. And since the formula is sulfate-free it’s non-lathering to offer you a new cleansing experience that’s gentler on curls.
In a word, lather! Both formulas provide curls with essential moisture and gentle, non-stripping cleansing but Low-Poo also provides light lather for those of us who just love some lather!
Yes, you can switch between using either of these essential moisturizing cleansers depending on your preference for lather.
The sulfate-free formula will not produce lather. You will need to use your fingertips to work the formula on your scalp—scrub it in and scrub it out while rinsing. Your hair will not have a squeaky-clean feeling – which is perfect for curls because it means they are moisturized.
No-Poo Original has a Turkish rose and peppermint scent that is clean and invigorating.
how to use
Saturate your curls and scrub No-Poo on your scalp to cleanse. Scrub it out too to thoroughly cleanse your curls.

I have straight thick hair with a very slight wave and this works!!!!!
Review by Vicky on 6 Sep 2020 review stating I have straight thick hair with a very slight wave and this works!!!!!
I have had severe scalp eczema for years. Used fragrance free/hypoallergenic etc products after doing patch tests at the doctor for years. It did not improve. I tried this No-poo original and I have no flakes. It does not itch anymore and my hair looks very good. I have highlighted long hair. It seems to protect the highlights as well. Have been using now for over a month and I am amazed that it works for straight hair as well. I use a large squeeze condiment bottle to shampoo my hair. I add the amount I need for a wash in the bottle, add water, shake and dispense at the roots first . Then work all the way to the rest of the hair. As it does not lather, using that type of bottle assists in proper distribution straight to the roots. Very very happy.

Review by Shelley L. on 5 Sep 2020 review stating Disappointing
I understood this to be a product similar to a shampoo that would cleanse your hair. Hair was still greasy towards the roots.

Review by Samantha B. on 12 Aug 2020 review stating Really impressed. I was hesitant
Really impressed. I was hesitant about the no lather. But this product cleaned my hair nicely, and my hair didn’t get greasy on day two at all. It stayed balanced and even still felt clean on my roots.

I see my curl coming back!
Review by Haley T. on 9 Aug 2020 review stating I see my curl coming back!
I do see my curl defining itself more and more, which I LOVE! But after washing my scalp is still oily. I rinse and rinse and rinse some more but it's still oily. I have not had this issue with other sud-less shampoos. Is there another product in your line you recommend if this becomes an issue?

Only one complaint...
Review by Jennifer N. on 8 Aug 2020 review stating Only one complaint...
I wish the 32 oz. bottles came with the same lids as the 12 oz bottles. The pump caps do a very poor job after a certain point and they seem to break easily. I've gotten to a point with my MS that I can't fight with the pumps anymore to get product out of the bottle and instead go thru the tedious task of moving the product to a different container that is easier for me to use. I could simply put the bottles upside down if the 32 oz. bottles came with the same cap as 12 oz bottles and it would solve my one problem with this product. (Side note, the 12 oz bottle caps do *not* fit on the 32 oz bottles. I've tried.)
