Hey pickle, I am still no-pooing it. I found the b/s and acv to be too drying for me so I now use just water and a scalp massage to wash, usually about 2 times per week (sometimes just once). I use a boar bristle brush in between and this keeps my hair clean. I did find that I had to start using a conditioner again though. Even though I was only using water, my hair was just getting too dry and damaged (I am a "dry" person generally, and it is insanely dry where I live in the winter!).
If you can stick out the waxy stage for a good week, then do the BS/ACV thing that will get you over the worst of your hair adjusting. Just brush, brush, brush and wash the brush with shampoo or soap as needed.
