Yes, I agree, a vinegar wash is really only a good idea for normal to oily hair, or if you use a ton of hair products. I have constantly dry hair because I take lithium, and it really did no good for my hair or scalp.
I’m experimenting with occasionally just rubbing some massage oil or sweet almond oil into my hair and scalp and leaving it there while I lie in the bath. The first time, when I used some really dated massage oil, it worked great, but then I used some high-quality almond oil and did not have good results.. . weird.
Also, is there a natural skin care practitioner out there who can tell me about the safety of using baking soda or epsom salts (mixed with sea salt) as a facial scrub? My dad said epsom salts are really ‘caustic,’ and you have to be careful about using them. And he was talking about just a foot soak at the time, not even using them on my face.
