So, while on vacation I had to pour the mixture on my scalp instead of spraying a stream at it. It worked out okay. I like the stream spray better, but whatever. I did not pack my ACV for conditioner - BIG MISTAKE. Talk about unruly hair!
My hair was mostly either under a cap, bandanna or bike helmet the entire trip. Whatever condition it was in due to lack of consistent baking soda and water cleansing really was of no concern to me.
Here's a quick recap, though
- I stopped using commercial shampoo and conditioners on Monday, May 26th
- I am currently using baking soda to wash my hair
- I am using raw ACV as a conditioner
- My hair is *still* ... fine
For future consideration while traveling, I will pack additional packets of baking soda to make a fresh mixture every time I go to wash my hair. Since I make a mixture to last me 5 days (with no issues so far) I didn't think to bring additional supplies while traveling. I didn't expecting clumping. Lesson learned for next time, though.
Would love to hear if you have done No Poo or are currently doing No Poo. Have you noticed any changes in your hair or scalp? Do you consider your use of No Poo a success.
Since I keep my hair either in a bun or braided I really haven't seen any significant changes other than my curls coming back.
