After winter, using oils and more conditioner -
I had to "spring clean". I used a small palmful of baking soda, then shampood with a shampoo bar, then used a vinegar rinse.
After 3 days, I did the same thing.
My hair is back to shiny and bouncier.
I think my hair dulled some from all the extra stuff I tried during the winter, and I just needed to start over - using the first routine of shampoo bar, vinegar rinse, conditioner, and style with FOTE...that has always worked the best for me.

With summer coming, I'll be adding honey to my co-wash.

I guess I just switch depending on how my hair feels, which does correlate to the seasons.

Maybe that was their original intent, but a lot of less curly people like it because it makes ours curl up more and better. Mine likes it as long as I don't use too much of it - then I do get weighed down. It took some trial and error to find the right amount and combo (I usually need a gel for more hold).
