2.5 years further and considering quitting! help?!

Hi everyone,
I’ve been water only for 2.5 years now and I feel as though my hair has someone suddenly gotten really bad. My long curls/waves have become heavy and flat, my hair is increasingly brittle, the ends split 2 months after being trimmed…

I typically only BBB once/month as my ‘wash’ and sometimes I use a wooden comb throughout the month. I wet it with water a couple of times/week and almost always put an all-natural conditioner/mask on the ends to try and help it not breaking. I also almost always use coconut or almond oil on the ends after wetting it.

Does anyone have any thoughts on helping these problems? Might it be worthwhile to try out an ACV to help with the brittle-ness? Should I BBB more often?? (One of the reasons I don’t do it so often is because I find cleaning my brush of sebum to be a big hassle!! How do people who brush their hair everyday clean their brushes?!)

Any tips welcome! Otherwise I fear this very long experiment of no poo might come to an end because my hair just doesn’t look nice anymore :frowning: :frowning:

Hi! I just joined, because of my own issues, so I can’t help much; but I’ve been cleaning my brush and comb in hot water with baking soda. I just bought a boar bristle brush and a wooden brush with wood bristles and they’re coming with a brush to clean them with. It looks like a mascara wand, but bigger. I don’t know if they sell them separately, but maybe you could clean an old mascara wand and try that. Sephora has wands to test mascara with, maybe they’d let you have one. I am wondering if I can clean the new wooden brushes in hot water and baking soda without hurting them though.?. Also, I’m new, so what does “BBB” stand for? :slight_smile:
