the basic bs wash is 1/2 to 3/4 cup of baking soda to 1 gallon of warm water, make sure all the clumps are broken up and the bs is fully dissolved then pour over your head, let it soak for a minute or 10 and rinse well.i don't do all the oils and and have not felt the need for acv as my hair is normally pretty oily but i do add 3 tbsp of sea salt to the bs, nothing extra to do, just make sure it dissolves

I use dish soap. I never have any problems, and have not noticed any residue at all. BS is much too harsh on my scalp, but they are pretty comparable in price. Just make sure there are no hand-softening ads on it and no bleach and you should be fine to just stick with it if you want.

I dont use dish soap simply because it is designed to strip grease and stains from dishes. Very concentratedyet not made of organic ingredients like Dr. Bronners.So...who knows what it strips from ones scalp/hair. Then again, most peoples hair/scalp needs are different so obviously mileage may vary.

I use organic shampoo bars which are loaded with good things like olive/jojoba/shea butter oil, but then again my type of hair suffers from dryness easily hence the added moisturizing oils are a good thing. Yet that same soap may make your hair too oily or appear to be. Just my opinion tho.
