Good to know. I did the baking soda last night. I've done the vinegar before, but didn't do that last night. There is definitely more shine! My curls aren't consistent, but I was in dry A/C.
Our curls do look similar and I'm wishing you the best in your grow-out. I just turned 50, and am trying to continue my growing out to bra strap length for more updo options. Age....bah! It's all in how we look best, for sure!
