Hi community. I wanted to report that I have returned to my regimen of shampoo free, and have been no poo once more for about 4 weeks after a year hiatus. I had stopped using ACV/BS because my husband hated the smell of vinegar and for a while I was unable to really experiment much with trying to make the whole process more pleasant for those who didn't like the vinegar. I went back to using shampoo and conditioner, and found that in the extreme dryness my hair got a lot more damaged. Back earlier in May I decided to finally go back to using the no poo system. Its taken a while, and my hair has to rebound from about a year of shampoo build up, but thus far I've started noticing that my natural wave comes out in my hair after the vinegar wash. I have my BS in a canister and do the paste in my hand and thoroughly scrub my scalp. Then I wash with ACV that I've distilled through rosemary and have cut the concentration considerably to about 1/5 parts ACV and water. I find that this helps the ACV a lot less strong and smell a lot better.
Here is my current set up for my ACV and my BS:
I used one of my cat's old litter containers to store the diluted ACV.
My only frustration at this point is that my hair is still really frizzy especially at the top of my head. If I add the least bit of oil (tea tree and coconut) it get's really really oily and gross looking. So I'm wondering if anyone has any tips to help out with this issue.
