Unhappy My hair smells like VINEGAR!!!!

DH is grossed-out b/c my hair smells like vinegar. I dilute it (like 1oz to 12oz H2O) but it still smells? I also added a few drops of lavender ES, but that smells worse? Please help

I'm not sure what vinegar is supposed to do for your hair (can't believe I haven't heard that one - I use vinegar for EVERYTHING else!), but I use castile soap for shampoo and jojoba oil for conditioner(in the ends ONLY, unless you want to shampoo again!) and they work fine. My usually fine hair still has no texture, but who cares when I wear it in a ponytail anyway because of the kids.

Re: My hair smells like VINEGAR!!!!

I've done the no-poo for the past 2 days so I'm definitely not a no-poo expert I can say that my hair doesn't seem to have much smell--just now smelled it! I don't know that it would matter, but are you using the apple cider vinegar?? Sorry to be not much help, I was just surprised that mine actually DIDN'T smell like vinegar!

Are you using the apple cider vinegar? Are you rinsing it out after you put it in? I use 2 tbs to 12 oz of H2O and I have no problem. Love the clean way my hair smells. As soon as I rinse it is gone. As for what does it do? I believe it is like a conditioner, just like it is a fabric softener in your laundry (except that is white vinegar). Be sure it is ACV and rinse it well after you put it in.

Does it still smell after it's dry? Normally mine only smells when it is wet. Hubby actually likes it...lol. He's like, "Mmmm, fish and chips."

yes, even after it is dry, you can still smell the vinegar. I use the apple cider vinegar, too

I don't know what to tell ya. Mine doesn't smell at all after I rinse. Just smells clean. How much ACV are you using? I use 2 tbs in 12 oz of water. Maybe reduce how much you are using and be sure to dilute it. Otherwise, maybe it is just your nose! hehe
