I believe it is apple-cider vinegar, but I have no idea what the criteria is for making it.

I, myself, have used the baking soda mix in the CG book...but the person that cuts my hair told me it is really drying. Hm. I don't know....if it is, then why would it be a recommendation for CG?

The baking soda thing I used....it was water and baking soda in a spray bottle...and I thought it did my hair wonders....but DANG! It surely didn't like to spray out well (clogging the spray nozzle)...so I ended up spraying what I could (in between cleaning the nozzle) and then just poured a little in my hands each time and plopping it on my hair. It wasn't easy! Then I let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it out.

It is 1 tablespoon of baking soda to 1 cup of warm water. CG states this will remove heavy product buildup. You wet your hair....wash with conditioner (if you are following the CG routine), blot hair dry....spray the mixture..and allow to sit for a few minutes...then rinse.

The other thing I see is to combine the juice of 1 large lemon with the usual amount of conditioner..then rinse. It says it is more clarifying and cleansing than any shampoo...removes buildup and is great for very dry/damaged hair.

I haven't used that yet.

Eek, don't just spill it on! Dilute it first!!!!

And I think that white vinegar would also work...good luck!
