So my hair now looks like this.
If I didn’t tell you, you would never know that I don’t wash it daily with shampoo and condition it.
In fact, I wash it about every four to five days. This seems to make it happiest. It makes showering a lot quicker too. Thick hair takes ages to dry.
The regime I settled on was using goat milk soap to wash, and apple cider vinegar to condition. I saw a recipe for goat milk soap with tomato that was said to be good for hair, in particular to brighten your colour. So I made some, and it is great.
The ends don’t split. It doesn’t get static and flyaway. I haven’t coloured it in months.
I would call this project a success.
