Update on the "No-'Poo" experiment, and Giveaway Winners!!

I have a confession to make to you all.

I'm impatient.

After a week and a half of the baking soda/apple cider vinegar hair-washing, I'm ready to quit it for now.
I know what all the proponents of it will say--you have to keep at it for at least a month to give your hair time to adjust.
Well, you know what?  I don't like what my hair is doing as it "adjusts"! :(  It looks greasy so quickly, and even right after it's washed and dried it's clumpier than it used to be, and not nearly as soft and smooth or easy to manage.
That, right there, is enough reason for me to go back to my regular shampoo and conditioner--the minimal amount that I use anyway.  I feel prettier.

Granted, I could try adjusting the ratios of baking soda/ACV.  I might do that at some point.  A little more baking soda might do the trick.  But like I said, I'm impatient.  I don't feel like adjusting the ratios and giving it another couple weeks.

Besides, I buy those bargain-sized bottles of Suave shampoo/conditioner (one of the cheapest brands), and they last me nearly six months, people.  It's really not much cheaper to use the baking soda/ACV, once I mix up another batch every two weeks or more, because I use so much more of it than regular shampoo.

So I'm calling it quits.  For now.  Maybe this summer (when I won't be seeing so many people) I'll give it a shot again.  I'll let you know.  But right now, I have something much more exciting to talk about....

  1. Congrats to those who won! As for the hair thing, I really do want to try it some time. For now, I use Yes to Cucumbers, which is shampoo and conditioner made with organic and natural materials and formulated especially for color-treated hair. That, coupled with the fact that my hair stylist uses organic supplies and hair color, has made my hair look and feel superb! Not to mention the coconut oil, of course. :) I completely understand the impatience, by the way.


I love reading your thoughts and opinions!
