Yet another no poo question

OK I have been no pooing for a while now. Up until recently everything has been going well. But all of a sudden my hair has gone through some changes and I can't seem to figure out what I need to adjust. My hair has been getting oily faster. I used to be able to go 2 1/2 or 3 days between washing. I was hoping that would get longer. But now I have to wash every other day and by half way through day two I look pretty gross. Also my scalp is itchy. To the point where I am scratching it raw in my sleep. I have lowered the amount of lemon juice I am rinsing with (diluted it more) and I have stopped using the honey thinking that may be causing the oily hair. FWIW, I was itchy before reducing the honey.

Any ideas????? What adjustment should I try next? I hesitate to reduce the lemon juice anymore because my hair is starting to feel really stringy right after the shower.

Tonight I am going to try adding some Dr.B's to the baking soda and reducing the lemon juice but combing in some rosemary oil and see if that makes a difference.

My scalp got itchy recently when I used shampoo just once. I would be afraid that adding Dr. B would make your scalp worse. I normally only spray my diluted ACV from the ears down, but I sprayed it on my scalp & lat it sit for 1-2 minutes before rinsing, & that made my scalp stop itching, & the red bumps went away.
