My DH and I have been trying no-poo for about 2 months, and I have a question. How do I get rid of the waxy feeling?
My DH's hair had almost no "detox" period, while mine is still in the adjustment phase. Since the beginning, my hair has felt like the outside of a wax candle. It is terrible, and doesn't seem to be changing much. It is much longer than his. It is layered and falls just past my shoulder.
I started doing BS/ACV every other day. (Both are one tablespoon to one cup water.) The days in between I did WO (hot wash/ cold rinse). After the first week I had really bad wax so I switched to WV rinse and tried an apple sauce rinse. I did another apple sauce rinse the next week. DH switched us back to ACV last week, b/c he finds it less drying. All in all his hair looks great. My hair doesn't look bad or greasy. It just feels bad. It is sticky and waxy, not by the roots, just everywhere else. Lol. Someone else mentioned this feeling and I wonder if they found a solution? I couldn't find a follow-up post.
I have searched for solutions under the links for waxy, newbie, build-up and faq. I found one suggestion to add salt to help soften the water, which we have been doing for the past three weeks. We add 1/2 to 1 tsp salt to the water. It seems to have had little effect. I just feel like I'm missing the key. Any suggestions?
