Alrighty, added 1 month photo to first post. Sadly i almost look to be going backwards, but my 2 weeks pic my hair was a tiny bit damp yet and really oily at the time so at lest now it's light at fluffy. But anyways do i look bout right for 1 month? I'm figuring i'm ok since I'm only a month in.
My regiment is a generous 1/3 cup BS in 3 quart cool water in a small bucket I cleaned up. Dunk my head then use a cup to get what remains soaked, and giving a little extra attention to the top of my head that tends to run so oily. It sits for about 5 to 7 min. Then rise cool water with retractable shower head on 'power wash' setting as I call it lol. No ACV because I have hard water and oily hair.
I was washing every other day but i'm thinking that was too often, so this last week i tried going to just a Monday/Friday schedule but going three days no wash was too much yet and my hair got really gross so gonna try after every 2 days for now. it's getting there because when I started just skipping one day left it gross.
I finally got my hands on some sea salt. Expensive non iodized table sea salt for now, hope to eventually get some cheap oceanic salt from a pet store later. got that mixed up in a bottle and will spray my hair down a few hours before washing...won't rise before hand so the salt will be there when I use the BS.
still having trouble with oily hair on the top of my head. Don J suggested lemon juice once in awhile.. thoughts?
Ok here where I really need some advice. I found two different spots where I can get essential oils but here's my prob. I have asthma and allergies and tend to go into an attack with anything strongly scented like perfumes or incenses. AND I'm particularly allergic to anything flower. i can't even drink tea's with hibiscus or rose in, and I know I'm allergic to ANYTHING lavender scented. I think I'll be ok with Tea Tree and I was thinking of getting either Citronella or Lemongrass for a bit of added bug repellent. But i'm worried bout Rosemary since it's a flowering plant (even though I plan to get it anyways). But I definitely can't get Lavender. Since Tea Tree, Rosemary, and Lavender are the three big ones suggested on here... Any advice on a substitute oil I can get with similar properties but not coming from a flowering plant? Or would I even need one using Tea Tree, Rosemary, and Citronella(or Lemongrass). Also which would be better, Citronella or Lemongrass... I heard Lemongrass can attract bees....
So there's my 1 month update on DLS's 3rd B-day Weehee!
