I miss the smell of shampoo. It’s my biggest beef with natural laundry detergent, and the reason I still use Pine Sol to clean my house. I like fragrance, even if it is chemically simulated.
So my hair yesterday was fine. By the end of the day it was looking a little lank, but no more so than when I skip a day of regular shampooing. The biggest issue was the smell. Without those chemical flowers, my hair took on much more of the atmosphere smells. And since I dripped something on the bottom of the oven while cooking dinner, my hair smelled like it used to when I waited tables and came home smelling vaguely of fryer oil.
So into the shower I went for a faux-poo (I am using baking soda and the chamomile tea/vinegar concoction after all). And my hair is sticky, y’all. There is no way I could be a heroine in a romance novel. No man could run his fingers through my flaxen tresses at this stage of the game. I’m really unsure how to describe it, except to say my hair feels gummy when it’s wet. The “washing” process is fairly unpleasant.
Though still no tangles. Surprising given the way the hair feels when it’s wet. I’m hoping this is the detox stage I hear about, and the gummy feeling goes away. That could be a deal breaker for me.
I’m going to swing by Whole Foods today and pick up some essential oils to add to my “conditioning” vinegar rinse. Can I do that? Or will it make my hair more sticky? Guess I better research it before I go.
That’s my update. Signing off til later.
