I thought it would be fun to do a few updates on my most visited and pinned posts this week. (I apologize for the terrible quality photos today.)
My post about using baking soda and apple cider vinegar to clean my hair has been pinned 900 times according to pincount, making it my post pinned post of all time.
Time for another update!
Am I still using baking soda to wash my hair?
Most of the time.
I purchased the Allure Beauty Box this spring and got more products than I knew what to do with, including bottles of shampoo and conditioner. Every once in a while, I use that instead of baking soda, tea tree oil, and apple cider vinegar to wash my hair. And when I travel, I use regular shampoo. I’m pretty flexible and my hair doesn’t freak out alternating between the two. I think the key is that it’s not used to being washed daily, so it adapts.
Am I still happy with how it works?
Yep. Honestly, I feel like it does a better job of keeping my scalp clean than shampoo does. I think it’s the tea tree oil magic.
However my hair is way too fuzzy for my liking. It’s been a lifelong problem. Perhaps I need to try a hot oil treatment. I’ve heard great things about coconut oil. (I’ve used it in the past to help with frizz, but never tried an actual treatment.)
What does your hair look like?
Uh, usually in a braid like this:
My hair is reaching ridiculous lengths and I usually shower then braid or twist my hair into a bun.
