I have let chlorine and salt water affect my hair lately but it was so worth it lol.

I will be detangling, trimming and DC'ing this weekend before bunning it up.


what products do you use CC?  I'm still waiting for my halp!  I think I used SM curl smoothie and sparklites gel for the last time and it just flopped (I do my twists with those products)

CLC I put about 75 in my hair too--its thick 3c-4b mixture.

75?! You too Tbaby?! Eff y'alls thick luxurious hurr.Cry

I use my regular products on wet hair: Aussie Moist conditioner & castor oil to seal. Then put the curlformers in making sure they are dry/set before taking them out. I tried it on semi damp hair and that was a big ol FAIL. Wet hair for the win.

Can you wash your hair with Baking Soda or Apple Cider Vinegar? : A scientific experiment!

So you may recall the last experiments on cowashing and rhassoul/bentonite clay washing which led many of you to ask, why not do it with baking soda and apple cider vinegar (ACV)? Well here are the results!


The Experiment
I used my own shed hair and imaged it:
-on its own without any washing (oily hair sample)
- washed with shampoo only (2 minute water rinse, 2 minute shampoo wash, 2 minute water rinse and air dried for 4 hours)
-washed with baking soda dissolved in water only ( 2 minute water rinse, 2 minute baking soda (pre-mixed with water), 2 minute water rinse and air dried for 4 hours)
-washed with apple cider vinegar only ( 2 minute water rinse, 2 minute apple cider vinegar wash, 2 minute water rinse and air dried for 4 hours)

The Results

1. The Controls - Oily Hair and Shampooed Hair

This paragraph is a bit of self plagiarism (yes you can plagiarise yourself)  - As before - I redid these two controls for this experiment because you always have to have a baseline of what the hair looks like prior to washing and what it looks like with a proper wash. You can therefore judge the baking soda and ACV in context of dirty and clean hair.
 
Oily Unwashed Natural Hair

Clean Shampooed Natural Hair

2. Baking Soda Wash

I was actually stunned by this. It really did not clean at all. I kind of expected it to somewhat but it really was just a greasy mess. I even decided to soak it in the baking soda mix for 10 minutes and try again but the result was exactly the same

Baking soda wash on natural hair - Still Oily

 3. Apple Cider Vinegar Wash

If you thought the baking soda wash was bad, well meet the ACV wash. I think the hair actually looked oilier after washing than before. Once more I soaked it for 10 minutes to give it a chance and the result was just a bit better.

ACV wash - Can you believe this oil coated hair is washed?

ACV washed hair - 10 minutes - Still oily but less so.


Additional notes:
Running warm water was used for all washes. In each wash or rinse,  hair was rubbed gently to simulate normal hair washing. Shampoo - Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine Shampoo.
