hii! welp i have been a successful no-poo girl for about 2 or 3 months now. (thank you, thank you) but i believe my hair is overconditioned as it is getting flat and frizzy. so my question is, how do i 'clarify' it?

i have tried the baking soda thing and also the lemon juice/conditioner wash. any ideas?

    have you tried a vinegar and water rinse?

    i usually make a fairly strong one (maybe 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar to 1 1/2 or 2 cups water) and pour it on, then work it through my hair and scalp and let it sit for a while (5-15 minutes), then rinse.

    i usually condition afterward.

    good luck!

    I don't think that Mane n Tail is CG, so you may need to shampoo to get rid of any silicones that have built up. Then use a conditioner that doesn't have wax or silicones. VO5 and Suave conditioners are cheap and CG friendly. Read the product reviews for more recommendations.
