Day four of the baking-soda-and-water shampoo with the apple-cider-vinegar-and-water conditioner, and things are looking good – in particular, my hair.
Which, if you have been reading, you know I don’t think is my best feature; and if you haven’t been reading, let’s just suffice it to say it still has a greenish tint to it from when I henna-dyed it black last year.
I actually got a compliment on my hair last night! Granted, it was in a dark room and there were several glasses of wine involved (there were also several people drinking from the several glasses), but still, it was a compliment directed at my hair!
I highly recommend this new ridiculously simple hair care routine, though I would do an intermediate step if you’re currently using regular old commercial shampoo, be it salon-brand or generic. Either one will have lots of chemicals and going straight from that to baking soda might be too much of a shock. I have been using all-natural, store-bought shampoo and conditioner for about a year now and I think that was instrumental in making the switch to totally natural a non-oily-haired experience.
