Four weeks without shampoo. There are things I do like about my hair, and things I don’t. My scalp doesn’t get dry and itchy now. My hair is softer, isn’t full of static, and holds curl better. It is still very oily though. It hasn’t figured out how much oil to produce yet. I’m hoping it figures it out soon.
I am planning to do the baking soda / apple cider vinegar thing either today or tomorrow. This will only be the second time in four weeks that I’ve done it. If things haven’t evened out by six weeks, I’m not sure the path I’ll take next. I don’t plan on using shampoo but I don’t want my hair to be this oily either.
I’m normally a flat iron or hot roller gal, but lately I’ve been doing a lot of “scrunching”. So far, I’ve had two people ask if I got a perm 🙂 The kids’ hair looks good though. I guess thirty-something years of shampoo takes a bit longer to recover from. I did cancel my t-part color appointment to give my hair more time. I had a dream the other night that I stopped coloring my hair altogether and discovered that my natural color is completely gray. Of course, this isn’t true but I do wonder how much of it is gray now (I started getting gray hair in my early 20’s). I read about people who have reversed their gray by eating raw, with my genes, it would take a miracle for that to happen.
