    your hair didn't have a wave before?
    does it help to give your hair more body?

    No... my hair is/was stick straight unless I take a blow dryer to it, and a ceramic curling iron... and it only stays for about 30mins!

    but w/the miessence - shampoo, conditioner, rinse and spray its got body - when I wear it down... of recent I've been wearing it up in a bun (more professional looking) so I can get away w/ no-pooing only on Sundays... awesome! love it!

    I'm completely off poo now. Every 5 to 7 days I wash with hot water, then 2 tbsp of baking soda dissolved in 4 oz hot water, rub gently but thoroughly, then finish with a white vinegar rinse (2 tbsp white vinegar in 8 oz hot water). I don't rinse the vinegar out. If my hair starts to look limp before "wash day", I rinse with hot water in the shower, then follow with a vinegar rinse. My hair looks great! More body, a little wave that I never had before and no tangles. It took about a month of "no-poo" to arrive at this point. I'm happy with it.

    After swimming in the ocean - I haven't rinsed the seawater out - seems like it should be a good idea?

    When you rinse with vinegar - can you smell it? I guess I better go back and re read this thread - like there isn't enough to read around here.....

    Only when your hair is wet. Later on, no.

    Hmmm. I'm doing 1 tbsp of baking soda in 1c. water. Maybe it's too little? Then 1 tbsp. ACV in 1 c. water. But I do rinse it out. Perhaps some experimentation is due.

    My hair doesn't smell bad either as it usually does if I don't wash it. And no vinegar smell either!

    I've recently changed to using just bicarb to "wash" my hair. It certainly leaves my hands feeling soft. I can't air dry because of the way it's cut, it just looks raggy. I have also today not used conditioner, result, blow dryed hair is full of static, I used a dab of hair oil to control it it was so bad. I'll try the vinegar next :)

    I am considering letting the gray grow out as well. I'm almost 52 and started going gray about mid 30's. I'm not even sure if I'm all gray, never wanted to find out. My cosmetologist daughter said gray is "in" and younger women are actually coloring their hair gray. She recommended I just get highlights while I'm growing it out. Might as well give it a try!

    Care with some of the treatments out there with apple cider vinegar and baking soda on the scalp...could also cause more hair to fallout more. I always think from the big picture here. Do we wash the hair on the rest of the body like we do our scalps? Why? Why not? Granted, most shampoos are very harsh.

    From my reading, the hair also has a 6-week cycle when the hair begins to fall out more at times, and less other times. Thyroid may also play into it, including getting enough selenium (like Brazil nuts), Magnesium (like dark chocolate) and iodine (eat your seafood!). ;)

    Question is, do we really need to wash our hair with anything?

    I try out showering without any stuff. My body is not falling apart. I have sculf now but maybe thats only because my head wants to get rid of the stuff Ive used for 20 years.

    I have used only water for a few years now. I am still waiting for the apocalypse on my human body.
