I have ditched the vinegar and started using lime juice. That might partially account for the rave-y quality of my last few reviews. This lime juice stuff is amazing! My hair is so soft and shiny. Wow! I’m using about the same amount as I did with the vinegar: 1 few teaspoons to a tablespoon in a bottle of water, to be poured on after the shampoo-ing and rinsing.

You have to try it!

I’m also considering checking out citric acid (aka sour salt) and maybe even ascorbic acid (vitamin C powder), both of which I’ve heard work well too.

The other good thing, of course, is that there’s no vinegar smell. Speaking of smells, the rest of my reviews will focus on fragranced shampoo bars and soaps. It turns out the hubster really prefer for my hair to smell like something other than soap. You know, something lightly fruity or flowery like most salon shampoos. So I need to find something that he likes, but also something that won’t bother me. I’ve mostly gravitated towards the citrus-y fruity side: orange, bergamot, yuzu. I’ll let you know how it goes.

And the experiment continues…
