How'd the baking soda and vinegar work out?

Was it really 3 months ago already that Mommy started washing her hair with baking soda and apple cider vinegar?  It doesn't seem like it's been that long, but my blog entry about it was early February. 

She and I are both happy with the combination for washing and conditioning her hair.  Her scalp is sensitive, so she uses 1 teaspoon of baking soda instead of 1 tablespoon, but that's the only change she's made to the basic process.  That mixes with a cup of warm water before going on her hair.  For conditioning, she uses 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with a cup of warm water; the smell doesn't even linger.  I cuddle up right by her hair at night, and it doesn't smell of vinegar at all.

One of the really nice things about this combination is that she only needs to wash her hair once a week now; the combination is doing a really good job of keeping her hair feeling clean without over-washing it.

Of course, she's shaving it all off next week at a St. Baldrick's event, so I don't know how much use the combination will be in the near future.
