next on my natural to do list

buy a boar bristle brush so that i'll hopefully have some no-poo success this time around

did do baking soda and apple cider vinegar and just looked nasty - and i know things get nasty before better, but it was the summer and it just looked bad. i suppose winter is a good time to try - i can always cover my head...

"Instead, boar bristle brushes are designed to clean, polish and condition hair. The densely-packed, fibrous bristles attract dust and dirt, brushing them out of the hair. For those committed to water-only or natural haircare, the brush becomes a primary method of removing foreign particles from the hair.

Treating Sebum

The bristles also catch hold of sebum, the oily substance produced by the scalp. Left to itself, sebum tends to clump near the roots of hairs, clogging pores and giving hair a greasy, unwashed look. A boar bristle brush spreads the sebum from the root down the length of the hair shaft, allowing it to do its job of coating and protecting the hair. Sebum is the natural hair conditioner, and repeated application helps hair to stay moisturised and shiny."

we shall see
