Topic: Advice for a beginner?
I am new to MM; I purchased the shampoo sample pack and have tried a few of them. The website suggests purchasing all five shampoos, but financially this is not an option for me right now. I'm looking for some input as to which product(s) would be best to start with ~ preferably one to three shampoos, as well as the zen detox and possibly a conditioner.
I have very thin, very fine wavy hair. It's about shoulder length with some layering. My hair gets VERY greasy within about 24 hours, and due to the waviness, the ends tend to get dry. I have to be very careful with conditioners, as many varieties weigh down my hair; I have also tried coconut oil or jojoba oil just on the tips, but find this leaves my hair greasy.
I am recently recovering from trying the baking soda/ACV routine, which caused terrible breakage and damage to my hair. Since quitting the "no poo" routine, I had a trim to remove most of the damage, and have been desperately searching for a natural, pH balanced hair care routine. I need to balance my greasy scalp, as well as strengthen my hair and grow back the breakage!
Any personal suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. We have hard water in my area, but my home has a water softener system. I was considering buying a shower head filter, as suggested in other posts, but am wondering if this is necessary?
