so i've been no poo for about 3 months now.. it has helped significantly and my hair is most of the time now, soft. but sometimes it's so dry and coarse and VERY rough! and at times it is soft and bouncy. why is it this, and what i can do to make it stay soft? i use sugar scrubs to keep my scalp clean and baking soda/acv a few times every 4 weeks.
