What is the ratio you are using for the Baking Soda wash and the ACV rinse?

For the baking soda, mix 1/2 cups BS with 5 Cups water, pour on head, don't scrub & leave on for 10-20 minutes, then rinse rinse rinse. Then for the Apple Cider Vinegar, mix 1-2 capfulls into 5 cups of water, pour on head and rinse right away. Finish off with a cold water rinse.
The ratio is important for the baking soda to do it's job. Try with the measurements above. Peace
just under half a cup of baking soda and a full basin of hot water (plus some essential oils and sea salt), 3 table spoons of ACV and another full basin of water.
Yep, hard water, after a couple of washes with Dr Bronners I noticed that my hair had a lot of sticky residue in it, and I mean my normal hair, not the dreaded parts so I stopped using it pretty quick.
I did a BS/ACV wash two days ago and the above photo was taken last night so it's not moving any time soon :/
I also have hard water and learned the hard way about residues. Absolutely use the anti residue shampoo, works like a charm, when rinsing it out, your will see the water color change from the residue. Your hair will feel different right away. When using the proper ratio of BS, I have never had a problem with it due to hard water. Hard water makes it a trial and error journey, just read Heather's page to read about hers, once you use the anti residue shampoo, use the BS/ACV until you order from Dreadlock Shampoo, then you WILL be fine.
