Topic: Feeling Discuraged
I have been using MM for 5 weeks now and my hair feels disgusting, sticky, and super oily every day. I have to either wear a hat or pull my hair back in a bun which gives me a headache. I've been doing the zen detox once a week and that makes my hair feel a little better but it is still oily. I brush my hair with a boar bristle brush and use the scalp massager once to twice a day. I have been washing every other day. I wash twice and dilute the shampoo with water before using it. I want these products to work so bad but I don't know if I can last through 6 months of this. It also doesn't help that I don't know any one who uses MM and they all look at me like I'm crazy when I try to explain my healthy hair journey. I need some encouragement I'm having a really hard time seeing the light at the end of this tunnel. However I am stubborn and refuse to let these last 5 weeks be a waist.
I do have a few questions I did just read today about rinsing with apple cider vinegar after the second shampooing so I'm going to give that a try next time. Do You have to rinse MM shampoo with cool water? I've been rinsing in warm water. Also I work in a pottery shop as a decorator (I glaze/paint pottery) I know this is an odd question but I am surrounded by glaze and dust from the glazes 8 hours a day. Would that have any effect on the detox?
Any advice or encouragement will be very appreciated!
