I did the vinegar prep and rinsed my hair with it. I did not rinse out after. My scalp was no longer itchy and my hair felt super soft after it dried! Definitely want to get more so I can use it again!
I did the vinegar prep. It was hard to be patient but I think it was worth the wait (meaning I *think* the storage benefit is worth the wait). I soaked the herbs for a week, then used 1/3 c added to 1/3 c water. I ended up using about half of that on my hair in the shower. Another time I think I would use all of it at once. My hair is super thick and even then, this made it to my scalp and has helped with the itching SO much. I did do one quick rinse after applying. I wish I hadn't. I was cold and I should have rinsed the rest of my body, not my hair. My hair smelled slightly of vinegar until it dried. Then I didn't notice anything.
I want to try the water prep, but I was so happy with the results of the vinegar version! I'll be doing this once a week to combat the annoying itchy scalp.
I did option 2 for the shortened prep, and I was blown away by the results! My hair came out super soft, light feeling (I have thick hair) and so shiny. My scalp usually gets itchy between washes every few days but this did the trick. Even after using my regular conditioner on subsequent washes my scalp is still feeling great. I definitely will be using the rinse a couple times a month this winter to stay ahead of getting itchy from the cold air, and just because my hair felt so amazing from it!
