Hey there, just found this forum and very grateful for any and all help and input. In reading through other topics, it doesn’t seem to be exactly the same since it’s been so long (but apologies if it’s similar!)
I have fine/soft medium-length straight/wavy brown hair. For the last year and a half my regime has been roughly 1/2 tbspn BS with a cup of water shampoo, massaging it thoroughly into the roots, rinsing it out, and leaving ACV in for 5 minutes to the bottom half, followed by a rinse. I do this 1-2x a week depending on how much I can put up with the grease factor, and while my hair gets clean with it, I’m seeing no lessening in grease build up or need to wash. I have forced washes down to once a week for months on end hoping my hair would adjust but it still gets greasy within 24-48 hours, same as I was with commercial shampoo.
My ideal goal is to push oil and grease build-up as long as possible. Does anyone have recommendations of things to try that will get me to a once-a-week (or less) wash without so much grease in between? I started this to cut back on washings and oily hair-I’ll try anything and I don’t want to give up!
