After five weeks of hell of no shampoo or conditioner and using nothing but bicarbonate of soda and apple cider vinegar and the occasional essential oil on my hair I was ready to give up. The greasiness refused to go away and it was still itchy. I thought I'd give it one last go and decided to increase the concentration of the bicarb. It worked! The greasiness went! My hair was lovely again! And it has stayed that way for about a week. I've reduced the bicarb concentration and my hair is still lovely. I've stopped constantly wearing it in two plaits and have even worn it down!

I saw my GP on Monday who thinks the bicarb might be too strong for my scalp but reckons the itchiness is eczema. I now have to nuke my head with a steroid lotion for the next three weeks. No change yet but this is only day four and these things take time.
