    Red face Hello! Critique my hair routine!

    Hi everyone,

    I joined a long time ago and am now back on this wonderful forum! Iíve put details about my hair and routine in my profile (hopefully they are visible, if not I will put them in a post) - does my routine look ok to you?

    I have been diagnosed recently with rosacea and ocular rosacea, so have to be very careful about using products containing fragrances, silicones and harsh ingredients.

    Thanks very much!

    Hey, welcome (back). I don't see anything "wrong" with it, no, but you do you. Take 10 people on this site and their routines are totally different! And that's *fine*; not everyone has the same hair or scalp to work with.

    If it works, then why bother changing it up, right? It is working for you, though, right?

    Thank you, lapushka! That is reassuring. Yes, I think it is working for me - Iím hoping to get to the Ďbenign neglectí stage soon, where I can wait for the sides to catch up with the back, while occasionally micro trimming the back. Very happy to be on this forum to keep myself motivated too!

    Hi, I'm far from expert and many here know hair far better than I (what I have learned has been by trial and mostly error) but straight lemon juice is pretty acidic (pH 2). Try it, but if it were me, I'd maybe dilute and neutralize to >4 with some baking soda before using.
