A haircut this morning

"Washed" my hair with my new routine this morning and headed off for a back-to-work trim.  No comment on my weird hair.  So it's passed the hairdresser test.  Or she could just be too polite to say anything.  But I didn't see any signs that she thought my hair was anything but typical locks.

Kind of surprised that I'm still doing this and that it hasn't been that hard.  Anyone else out there giving it a go still?

Hi again Deb,

sorry for the lack of update thus far - but I think I overdid the bicarb and my hair's been too dry to think of washing again yet! It's strange because it was so good on the evening of the day I washed it, but the next morning it was very dry and hard to brush, and I couldn't have got a comb through it. But my hair tends towards dryness at the best of times, and there's lots of it.

Apart from the dryness for the first few days, I'm not unhappy with the overall effect.

I'll give it a go in the next couple of days and try less bicarb and more rinse, and see how that goes.

Next time I dare you to tell the hairdresser :)

Yes, I know what you mean about the bicarb. It's easy to over-do. I thought to myself, "Oh, it's not real shampoo and it probably won't clean as well so I'd better use lots." No. Not my best idea. I've re-done by bottles of stuff now and I've made the bi-carb solution a little weaker this time and the apple-cider vinegar a little stronger. I think it's worked out well. It's still pretty ordinary on day 3 between washes though. Wonder how long it would take to change over from washing every second day to every third and if it's worth persevering with that or whether I should just revert to every second day.

Ooooooh. That's a big dare. I might do it after she's finished cutting my hair. As in, "I've been trying a new cleanse and rinse routine on my hair the last few months. Do you think it's doing okay?" Don't know if I'd be game to say anything BEFORE she started cutting in case she refused to cut it.

But maybe I'll get bolder when I've been through several haircuts with no one noticing.
