welcome

1st off...never use lemon juice!

2nd, u can wash as often as u feel you should, but every days a lil too often

take 15,000 mg of biotin every day  it takes awhile to start to see a diference but after awhile the growth rates  doubles even trippled

u might not notice for months though

how are u doing thebaking soda exactly

well, 1st off the sea salt solution should be 3.5% salinity so use google search how many  tablespoons of sea salt per liter for 3.5% salinity  since that isthe salinity of seawater  its a commonly asked question  so you will findthe exact measurements

and for the  baking soda..u want 1 part baking soda to 10 parts water, so in any sized container fill about 1/10th with baking soda the rest water

or measure 1 (anything, spoonful, shotglass, cup, whatever as long as you use the same unit of measure for both the baking soda and h20) of baking soda and 10 of water

pour on soak 10 min then  rinse

 

note..no need to rub either in, in fact avoid runbbing both while washing and drying ..so dont use a towel

normally after rinsing the baking soda out youd use a very weak acv rinse. but if your oily by nature skip it till your not

you will want to get into the habbit of not wetting every day as they will dry very slow once dreaded

and removing oils daily, makes u preoduce more oils..its like if u crash diet and only eat a cracker a day, that crachers converted to fat as a self preservation from starvation

similarly  stripping oils daily your scalp produces extra oils to protect itself

so to get less oily, wash slightly less often use baking soda to make it less acidic and in weeks it should be less oily

you canadd thyme tea or essential oil to also help regulate oil production

  • 1 1/2 tsp per 8 oz (1 cup) water
  • 1 TBSP per 16 oz (1 pint)
  • 2 TBSP per 32 oz (1 quart)
  • 4 TBSP per 64 oz (1/2 gallon)
  • 8 TBSP per 128 oz (1 gallon)

convert gallons to litres

as fotr biotin 10,000 - 15,000 is good so 2-3

and every 3  4  5 days its all good as long as its a minumum of once a week

actually 1 tablespoon  to 1/2 liter is  spot on perfect...or close   thats basicly 17 oz or veery slightly under 17 oz  so, like a lil under 1/2 liter  is perfect though  yopir 1 tbs per 1/2 liters close enough
