Who’s with me on this crazy little trip?
It’s been 3 weeks since I used shampoo – unless you count the egg shampoo – and I’m really wondering if there’s going to be a happy ending to this tale. I did try a shampoo bar, using just a touch of suds right at my scalp, but I didn’t like what it did to my hair.
I see more wave in my hair than ever, but also more oil. I can and do wear it up in a clip, so nobody knows but my own household. But when will the oil end? I certainly don’t want it to feel like this forever! Just for the sake of giving it a good try, I want to stick with it another couple of weeks, but I’m not sure what to expect or hope for. I’m afraid this works best for curly hair that tends to be so dry. My 2 curly tops now have softer, shinier hair than ever. Those of us with straight hair? Not so happy, but mostly me since my hair is far oilier than that of the children.
I don’t want to leave you with the wrong impression. I haven’t been miserable. My hair is soft and wavy. It feels almost sticky when it’s damp from the shower, but once it’s thoroughly dried I can run my fingers through it. I can’t decide if it feels nicely moisturized like skin after applying lotion, or if it just feel like somebody dumped a cup of Wesson Oil on my head. Sometimes I think it looks healthy and shiny, but then I give it a swing and it separates into strands. Ugh. Back into the clip. Pictures? I don’t think so.
I have been using baking soda and vinegar every day. This week I think I’ll back the baking soda off to every other day, probably with just a vinegar rinse on the off days. Maybe I’ll just rinse with warm water. I might do the egg shampoo again too, just to give myself a break.
