No more breaking hair, and it looks pretty when I take my hat off - and Jonathan appreciates the effect of falling hair when I take out the pins. And my hats fit better.
I've also, for other reasons, started taking a woman's one-a-day vitamin supplement. I haven't noticed a lot of difference, except that my fingernails are stronger and are growing longer between going to mikveh, when I have to cut them short. I think my hair is stronger, too, but it's too early for that.
Totally on a whim, a couple of weeks ago, I bought JR Liggett'sOld Fashioned Bar Shampoo, because I could buy it in a cheap hotel bar size, and I wanted to see what it was like.
I'm...not sure. I haven't used, or needed, conditioner since I started using it, which is a good thing, and it's fun to use, which is also a good thing. But. My hair feels different, and I'm not sure if it's good or bad. On the face of it, it's good. It's less knotty and less flyaway, and even less frizzy. When I comb it, it doesn't fluff up the way it used to. And it doesn't feel as...fried as it has been. It's...softer.
But it's also heavier. And limper. And, I know it's clean and the shampoo rinses out easily, so there isn't any residue, but it feels like there's, well. Oil there. There isn't. My hair doesn't clump up as it does if I can't wash it for a long time, so it's definitely clean. It just feels different, and I'm not sure about this.
Also, it doesn't smell very pretty, but there's an herbal version that does. Any one else try this?
