Austin, Texas summer

So, I think it has been four months since I started going no-poo. For a long time, things were very good. But then the summer hit, and now I am washing my hair every three days if I can even manage that, and I also dyed my hair three months ago or so, so I have been feeling like my hair is looking dry and miserable. So recently I have been using a hair mask of 1 egg, 1Tbsp coconut oil, 1Tbsp olive oil and a whole banana. The first time I used it, I sat outside in this Texas heat for an hour and washed it out after that hour, and it looked GREAT! Massive, shiny, perfect. But the second time I did it, I didn't use heat so my hair looked mediocre.

Anyway, right now I am being lazy and not measuring how much of BS I dilute or ACV, I just wing it, and maybe that it my problem. I also never used Prell or anything before I started doing BS/ACV once a week for three weeks I think and then I didn't wash my hair for a whole month (though I used LUSH dry shampoo).

Anyway, this is disjointed, but if I am to use Prell get rid of what buildup I probably have, how much should I use/should I dilute it? Does anyone have tricks for hard water/southern US summer hair? Do you have any tricks for more voluminous hair?

Fellow Texan here.

If the water is hard, boil it first. Then mix it with the BS immediately after boiling. That should do the trick.

We've had loads of triple-digit days here too. I still get by washing once a week. (And my hair is massively thick, and I sweat buckets.) Try WO and witch hazel on the in-between days.

Just my $0.02.

Cool! Do you just spray your hair with witch hazel and brush it out? I've never used witch hazel on my hair! Thanks for the help :)

Yep! Sometimes I spray on the witch hazel and comb right before a WO wash. Sometimes, I just use it on it's own. Or, invest in a nice dry shampoo if that doesn't work for you. :-)
