Shampoo Free

My hair is thin, it breaks easily and I have a thick layer of flaky skin on the back of my head. My hair has always been that way. My main reason for trying this recipe out is because I saw that it might eliminate the dry itchy spots.  This recipe starts with a baking soda solution wash and then a rinse of apple cider vinegar. Easy household supplies. I love it!

Day 1
Babyslime says that I shouldn't have to wash my hair everyday if I go no-poo. My question is do I wash my hair first and then use the baking soda solution?
Well, I hopped into the shower and started pouring the baking soda solution over my head and massaging it into my scalp. I let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it out. Now my question was do I rinse it out with the apple cider vinegar solution or with water first? I went with a quick rinse in the shower and then poured the vinegar solution and massaged that into my scalp. I don't know yet but it seems my hair is taking a lot longer to dry? I think it has been over an hour and I have pretty short hair.
Now that my hair is dry it feels a lot cleaner and not as dry as it usually is after I shampoo and condition it. I will definitely keep trying this!


P.S. I have no clue how to add links!
