Arrgh! I spied some condish in Morrisons called Schwartzkopf something of other with yoghurt...sounded gorgeous and smelt ace, and i scanned the ingredients, but in my confusion and feeling under pressure from DH to hurry i missed both the A-cone AND the paraffinium liquidum...and I used it...wow. You notice the difference instantly. My hair is positively grotty!. I can feel a nasty film all gunky, and I don't know what to do.
After not 'pooing since Feb, I really don't want to have to undo all my hard work! Can I get this out with lemon aid, or acv, or bicarb, maybe even just lots of friction?? HELP MEEEEEEEE *drowns own head in the toilet*
I tried the bicarb AND lemon aid today, in desperation. I really worked it in and left it on for quite a while, and then conditioned really well with my usual tea tree stuff, with some honey mixed in. It seems to have done something good, hard to tell whether its all gone or not but my hair is behaving better and is curling more than it did, and doesn't feel gunky like before, so I am hoping I've done enough to avoid the dreaded sulphate poo!
"Grotty!" Good word! I had that this week. I'm not sure from what. I tried an ACV rinse with no luck. I was too lazy to do a baking soda spray treatment as per the Curly Girl book, so I just shampooed.
Let us know how the baking soda worked.
my Fotki hair journey/experiment diary PW is brio (and I really need to update it!)
3A hair; coloring with henna/indigo since July 2009; normally follow the CG method. Still searching for my HG products!
LOL yes grotty is one of my mum's fave words...she loved all those not quite from the dictionary terms, like "skerrick" as in "nothing left in the tin, not a skerrick!"
The baking soda did seem to do the trick, perhaps it worked because I only used the conified condish the one time, and I had already CO washed with my faithful tea tree, the coniferous 'poo was added as a final. I left the baking soda mix on a while, and I didnt spray it, I put it in a jug and poured it on, and let it sit.
I don't know today though, I ran out of tea tree and am left with el cheapo morrisons henna stuff, which has an extremely strong smell, like furniture polish! And it doesn't feel great. I'm plopping right now, so I'll have to see how I go, I feel a ponytail coming on! Off to Morrisons for the tea tree today I think!
