What I've done:
Day 1--teaspoon BS in a half cup of warm water, massaged into scalp and rinsed well.
Day 2--cap of ACV applied directly to scalp while standing in shower, rinsed well.
Day 3--spritz of diluted ACV combed through, shower with plain water
Day 4--spritz of diluted ACV combed through (detangling), BS as on Day 1
How much worse does it get? Will it get to a peak of *eeeuagh* and then get better?
I just started using honey to wash my face and I liked how that went, so I made up a solution of baking soda, honey, and water for my hair and body. My body likes it fine, but my hair....not so much. It's not horrible, it's just not great either. Better than I expected though. I tried no-poo for a few days a couple of weeks ago with BS and ACV and it did NOT go well (and I hate the smell of ACV anyways). So I think I'm going to stick with this for a while.
An acid rinse such as diluted ACV smoothes the shafts of you rhair back down, making it smooth and strong, and returns your hair to its natural ph level. (Water is slightly alkaline as well.) If it's working fine for you who knows, but at the first sign of dryness do try an acid rinse. Alternatives are lemon/lime, beer, and other alcohols might work too--not sure if you need to boil out the alcohol. Let's see, cranberry juice would also work... there are probably lots of choices.
