What happened to poo-free?

So I spent a couple months diligently using baking soda and apple cider as recommended. The end result?

I go home and my mother is just like, dude, your hair is a greasy nightmare. (Except in Hindi. And she doesn’t say ‘dude’ in any language.)

And she was spot-on.

My comb was testimony enough to that. I kept hoping it was just stray baking soda, but, well. No.

I see posts saying that people had to add coconut oil to their hair—which makes me think there’s a bit of an ethnicity issue, because I have so much hair, and it is really rough, thick hair, and it gets unbelievably greasy if left to its own devices.

To be honest I don’t have the patience to try the fancier alternatives. So it’s back to shampoo for now. But the one thing I’ve really gotten out of this, which is great, is that I don’t need to wash my hair more than 2-3 times a week. Previously I washed it almost every day, which was ridiculous.

Poo-free Day 2

Ok…so I read some more blogs and found out that you’re supposed to baking soda more the roots, and apple cider the tips…my hair is now fluffy at the bottom and kind of greasy on top. I think I am going to apple cider the top next time.
