It helped that some and my scalp feels nice but now i have some crispy hay-like feeling at my nape and my ends which tangles alot more so trying to sort that out. Still very happy to know i am capapble of making it to a month with just WO.
    congrats!!! thats a huge accomplishment!

    i've always found BS to be quite harsh-- next time you're feeling like you want to cut back on some of the sebum, you might consider doing a tea rinse. it's acidic, but very mild

    What dry shampoos do people use? I'm probably going to try cocoa powder tomorrow on my hair since I over-did it with the coconut oil. Ginger sounds like it might be a good option for my fair-haired daughter.

    I use corn starch dusted in with a blush brush. After styling, a very superficial surface brushing with a baby brush or soft BBB removes enough on the surface that my hair does not look powdered. Cocoa probably would have worked for me, but it was lumpy and a little bit moister than corn starch.

    i havent used it yet, but when i do, corn starch will be my powder of choice as well. thanks for the tip about using the blush brush, DoubleCrowned!!!

    I just used the dried ginger powder in my spice drawer, you know, for cooking. It worked OK, but was a bit too yellow for her hair. Next time I may use cinnamon or cinnamon/corn starch blend. I used cocoa powder for my own head and it was pretty good for soaking up my excess coconut oil. Smelled good too.

    a word of caution about the cinnamon: it can cause irritation for some people. also, i use it in a honey treatment, and it's not so easy to rinse out w/ WO. it usually takes me 3 WO washes before i get it ALL out. and now days i wash less often, so i do honey treatments with no plain WO washes in between, and i have quite a lot of cinnamon leftover in my hair. i cant SEE it, but i sure do smell delicious when my hair gets even a little bit wet!

    i wish i liked the taste of teas. i have so many in my cupboard too, and i feel that at the rate i use them for my hair they're going to be there quite a while!

    I think I'm too chicken to try putting things in my hair. I tried an egg wash once. It made my head all itchy,though it did feel as if I had just washed my hair- without putting in any conditioner afterwards! I felt very strange walking to the bathroom with an egg and a bowl, terrified that my husband or his grandfather would walk out and catch me.

    I have still been Water-Only since July last year (with the visit to the haircutter place in October being the only exception)

    Over spring break I was back in Florida retrieving family members to live out here in Oregon with us. My hair did NOT like being rinsed in that water again.

    I'm still waiting for the day that someone notices that the bottles in the shower are only getting rearranged occasionally- not getting any emptier. Then again, maybe no one will notice. I wonder if I should bother taking them with me when we move to Colorado this summer...?

    My hair is... ok. It's not great, but then again I tend to ignore it a lot. I brush it with my regular brushes and wear it down most of the time so there is no fuss with my bike helmet.

    I, too, am a chicken when putting things in my hair. I've only used jojoba and EVOO in tiny amounts so far. But when I started I bought a pre-mixed ACV & honey bottle that I found in the supermarket. I thought it was interesting and I haven't heard of anyone on here putting them both together, so it's still unopened in the cupboard until I can find the courage to rinse with it. Maybe after a full 8 weeks WO I will.
    And it's inspiring to hear you've been WO so long! Thanks for sharing.

    My question to everyone is...week 5 and my scalp is itchy. Why is this and what can I do? I have been trying to use Snowy's Massage Technique every day, but I'm still feeling the urge to itch with fingernails sometimes. DH and I plan on buying a shower filter, as he has a skin condition he is convinced is due to chlorine etc in the water...at the moment I'm thinking maybe this would help my scalp stop itching as well. Ideas?
