Thanks for that link mhen76. I tried the baking soda wash today to open the cuticle, then used a deep conditioning Carotene bar and finished with an apple cider vinegar rinse to seal it all back up again. It worked great! My hair didn't start to get frizzy til late in the evening. If it keeps working, I'll need to find a hair gel to tame the evening frizz, but for now *fingers crossed*.
