I don't know where I went wrong, but I really want to go right before my birthday in less than two weeks.
My hair started misbehaving this winter and being unmanageable. I decided to try co-only first. That was in March. I decided the Shea butter brand was right for me and bought the formula for dry hair.
This went well for about a month. I typically shower every other day; I use only water on my hair every other shower, so I wash my hair about every four days.
Well, it was April, and my hair was greasy. I live in the South, so it was already humid. I switched to the volumizing conditioner, and this worked well for another month.
Then, my hair seemed to get used to it. My friend uses baking soda; we don't have the same kind of hair, but I tried it anyway. It went well for a week or so, but then I noticed my hair was staticy as ****. I tried putting my conditioner on the ends, but it didn't help.
She had told me she didn't use acv. She just puts two tbs of baking soda into a mason jar with water. I did the same, but I always eyeball the amount I use. I tried cutting back to one tbs. Then I tried a mason jar of acv and water in conjunction with half a jar of water and bs.
It took the static out, but now my hair is limp and ugly. The roots are greasy. First, they were crunchy from bs, so I poured some acv on them. I saw a recent post about how going back and forth with bs (or something similar) and acv will slowly strip your hair.
I just want to find what's right for me before my birthday. I'm not opposed to buying organic shampoos and conditioners. I never used them before my hair went crazy. I just don't know what happened this winter to make my hair so upset and why it hasn't gone back to normal yet.
The worst part is my birthday is coming up. The last thing I want to worry about is having awful hair! Especially since I'm going to be dyeing it for the first time ever. I've always wanted pink hair. I'm going to have it professionally done. That being said, any recs on what to tell the stylist to shampoo my hair with?
I'm posting pictures of how my hair was in fall 2012, back when I still liked it a lot. I also have a couple of how it was this spring when whatever I was using at the time was working. Basically pictures of how my hair SHOULD look. Then, I'll post ones of how it looks at this very moment. I showered last night. My hair is fine. It gets greasy at the roots and static and limp from my ears down.( Pictures...Collapse )
Please, help. ;w; I don't know what to do anymore. I don't know what to try. I just want my hair back the way it was. Also, if anyone can suggest how to tag this, I'll add them.
