Ditching Shampoo – A Photo Update.

Yesterday morning I decided it was time to wash my hair with baking soda and vinegar. I had waited three days to wash which is typically normal for me unless my hair is unbearably greasy.

When I washed my hair, I put some baking soda in the palm of my hand and made a paste with water then applied to my scalp, twice. I scrubbed, rinsed with water, then watered down some apple cider vinegar in my palm and rubbed that into my scalp. This made my hair feel a little slippery but less coarse. I blow-dried my hair afterwards and this is what I ended up with:

I was very satisfied with my hair when I was done blow-drying, but later in the day it fell flat and became unpleasantly greasy. This morning I washed with Dr. Bronner’s again and that seemed to cut back on the greasiness. I think once my hair stops going through shampoo/conditioner/chemical withdrawal, I won’t be facing the greasy issue any longer.
