God's day. This is the day that the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118: 24

As good a time as any – update

Just keeping it real here:  I washed my hair with my regular shampoo – it feels so soft and silky.  I promised myself I would try two weeks on the baking soda and did.  It wasn’t so much how my hair looked (although I did wear a pony tail every day) but the texture (greasy with the texture of horse hair).  I am not giving up on finding a happy alternative hair method – but have decided that being 35 weeks pregnant is not a very tolerable time for me to have bad hair when so many other physical things are just not normal that I really just want good hair.  (Yes this may be vanity but honestly, good hair is about all I have to cling to beauty wise these days).  So once baby is born I plan on trying out a few other methods (including maybe revisiting the baking soda, I have heard pregnancy is not a good time to start and even that people give it up during pregnancy who have been doing it for years.)  I have a shampoo bar recipe that is first up…

    good point – pregnancy is probably not the best time to try that out, too many other physical changes! However, you look fantastic, honestly!! And not just your hair.

    I’ve done the baking soda thing a couple of times. The first time was when my hair was really long a few years ago and I totally dried it out and wrecked the ends. I think I used too much baking soda and rinsed too often with apple cider vinegar. This time around, I’ve been switched over since January and it’s working really well. I do a teaspoon or so in a cup of water and then once or twice a week I do an apple cider vinegar rinse with a few tablespoons in a cup of water. It’s working really well for me, and actually it felt really odd to use shampoo when we were out of town recently.

    I think you’re right that your hair might do better when you’re not pregnant. Those darned hormones wonky everything. 🙂 I’ve also heard that for some people there’s a big period of adjustment and then it goes well after that.
