Is this a good plan? I'm going shopping tonight so I just wanted to be clear on that. Thanks!
When I was using this method, I used baking soda to wash and ACV to condition. Also had a bottle of ACV with various herbs good for my hair type, it takes some of the smell of the vinegar out and it works wonders on your hair. I'm thinking about going back to it. Hubby complained that he didn't like the smell of the ACV even with the herbs in it, though. Stupid boy. ROFL

Wow I tried washing with baking soda, rinsing, then following it up with ACV & it worked GREAT! I didn't even have to use conditioner!

See, I don't know if I could handle smelling like vinegar... Is there something besides herbs you can put in there, like essential oils (thinking rose, lavender)?

My hair never smelled like vinegar (I diluted it)... But I can imagine after using a fragrant shampoo and then switching, the fact that it just smells like hair is weird to some people? Try it and see.

Yeah you can put lavender oil or peppermint oil I think (though make sure to double check to make sure they are safe) I diluted the ACV in a large bowl of water & used a cup to pour it over my head (did the same with the baking soda before hand) your hair smells vinegar-y til it dries then it doesn't have a smell T all my hair jut smells like ... Hair lol.

I went to HEB so I couldn't find the "mother" ACV but I got their store brand which wasn't "imitation" like Heinz stuff is it was just filtered. It's great because I previously had itchy scalp & flakes/ dandruff & after only one use of soda/ACV it's all but GONE! Very impressed with it so far.

Question ... Could you mix the soda/ACV together or put the ACV on before washing out the soda? The first time I washed the soda out befits rinsing with the ACV. I also didn't need conditioner.

Mix you baking soda and vinegar in a cup or something and watch what happens .then you'll understand why I say that it's probably not a great idea.

That was always one of my favourite "experiments" in school... usually done inside of a volcano form with some red food colouring...

MY PINK LEOPARD PRINT CONVERSE ARE HERE EEEEEEEEEEEE

They're GOLD on the inside!
I LOVE THEM
*happy dance*



On a much less happy note, this morning I seriously considered calling my dermatologist to ask about Accutane. I'm so tired of the painful cystic acne. He put me on two different antibiotics before and neither of them really helped. The best my skin gets is on Epiduo but I can't use it for too long because it makes my face really sensitive and hurt... and even that isn't really good or clear of the cysts.
It's like, not only am I breaking out, which is embarrassing enough to be an adult with acne, but it HURTS.
It takes forever to get in to my dermatologist and it's really expensive on my insurance, like $50 copay and that's just to see him to start... and really I do NOT want to go on Accutane but I'm getting to that point of desperation...
