No poo update - I gave in while in TN. I used shampoo and conditioner. And BioSilk.  I washed my hair when we first got there and I did go "no-poo". I guess I still don't have the ratio right because I can't get my hair to feel the way I want it to feel. After I used the shampoo and conditioner, it was fabulous. *sigh* that said, the first time I washed it back in FL, I went back to "no-poo". It looks fine, not like when I use regular shampoo, but it's fine. 

What I really dislike is the fact that it takes so freaking long to blow dry it! I don't know if the baking soda / vinegar lets the hair soak up more water or what, but Lord have mercy I take my hair down from the micro-fiber turbie twist and it's still soaking wet! I'm talking I can squeeze more water out of it! 

It's like I dry and dry and dry and dry and it never really feels DRY. So I end up giving up and letting it air dry, but since I can't stand wet hair hanging all over me, I put it up in a wad (half pulled thru pony tail) or clip it up and then it's weird curls. Some kinky, some wavy and it just looks like a hot mess. 

I used a whole bottle of Italian dressing to marinate some chicken a week or so ago, so I popped the squeeze ring thing out of it, cleaned it good and put it back in after mixing up a batch of baking soda/water to wash my hair. The squeeze bottle makes it easy to use and shake to mix it up. 

That's about all I have to say about it at this point. I suppose i'll keep tinkering with it and see if I ever get it right. I'll keep you updated.
