The Blatherings Of A Blitherer

Dirty Hair Update: Soap Ahoy!

May20

I cleaned my hair last night with sea salt and baking soda in water, rinsed it with lemon juice and water, and then thought it felt greasy. Soaking wet and with no more baking soda in the bathroom, I slapped a bunch of Dr Bronner’s diluted castille soap on the top of my head and worked up a suspiciously greasy lather. Then I rinsed and thought “OH MAN! This took out TOO MUCH OIL. My hair is over clean.” So I rubbed my scalp under hot water and soon my scalp was oily again.

I know it’s only been a week or so, and it can take months for your scalp to calm down and not geyser out oil, and maybe I was spoiled by that one day of not-oily-hair. I don’t know. But I have a sneaking suspicion that I might have to supplement with castille soap once a week or so just to keep my hair from being ass nasty.

Or maybe I’m just not using enough baking soda.

I’m getting kind of tired of having to mix my stuff up before each shower, though. Shampoo is a lot more convenient.

On the other hand, I bought a huge freaking JUG of apple cider vinegar, and I’ll feel wasteful if I don’t use, so that alone might keep me committed to this crazy experiment.
