I had a four month break around the one year mark and my hair did awful on shampoo. I have been back on baking soda plus apple cider vinegar since February and do not see myself ever turning back. My hair is soft, shiny and happy.
Few tips I have learned in these 2 years….
1. If your hair is super greasy, apply the baking soda dry to dry hair while you get ready to shower, then wash and vinegar rinse as you normally would.
2. I have tried mixing with water and pouring, spraying, and a variety of application methods. My favorite now, and the fastest, is get your hair wet, dump a handul of baking soda in your hand, and smear all over, working it into your scalp with your fingers. Add more handfuls until your hair is totally saturated. Quantity is king.
3. I just pour straight apple cider vinegar on my hair, splash splash, work in with fingers, let it sit while I wash my face, then rinse.
