My second wash of week 3 report:
Routine: I used the same rinse mix I used on sunday. But this time I did a quick rinse with it, then I stood under the shower head and did my (now normal) rinsing/massaging rutine. Then I put LOTS of the mix on my hair and left it on for about 5 minutes while I did my other shower duties. The I stood under the spray again and did more rinsing/massaging. I did not do a cold water rince.
Results: My hair is better then on sunday. But my ends are a little dried out. My hair is good enough today that I was able to leave it half down. Well kind of, I have it in a modifed clip-up / pony type of style.
I really like the results of not doing a cold water rinse. I think it made my hair sticky. Today it’s greasy, but only a little sticky.
Next: I think next week I’ll try not doing two rinses. Just the one I leave on for 5 minutes. I might also try conditioning, which I haven’t done since the first week I think. I want to also try adding chamomile to my rinse mix. I’ve heard its good for grease and for lightening blond hair colors.
I think it might be a good idea to also try three washings a week. I think my hair is to greasy to only do two.
Wow, it seems like I’ve been doing this for a long time now, but it’s only been three weeks! I’m about half way to the point where most people get over the greasy stage. If I’ve made it this far, I can make it the rest of the way!
