I have seen a lot of moms on here do it. I was doing research because I have very very dry scalp ( bleeding and scabs) and read that using no shampoo and just a baking soda paste worked really good. My scalp isn't as dry anymore but my hair is super greasy looking. Is this normal and if so how long does it last? I can't stand the feeling. I started this on Friday.

I have tried that...i have very oily hair and the only shampoo that works for the oily is herbal essense but then my scalp gets dry. I heard using the baking soda paste gets rid of both but so far its making it worse.

Talk to a dermatologist or a good hairdresser.

No, not a paste.

If you have dry scalp, try two tablespoons in one eight ounce squirt bottle of shampoo.

I did only use this method, but then i started cowashing. Twice a month, i usebaking soda. The rest of the time, i use just water and conditiioneer, massaging into my scalp as i would shampoo. Let it sit for a bit, up to ten minutes depending on hait thickness. Then rinse u derr really hot water. Then, just use conditioner as a rinseas usual.

It has saved my hair and itchy peeling scalp

I did it for a few weeks last year- I had a hard time overcoming the greasy stage.

I just started shampooing less often- my scalp does feel better. I also have the dry shampoo by Privy to use in between.

 I do it about once a month.

It works great for shampoo build up, it strips away all the other hair products I frequently use  for shine, etc.

Are you rinsing it out? I've never had it feel greasy. In fact, I have to do extra conditioning on the ends or it gets frizzy.

You may have seborrheic dermatitis. That's what I have and I have to use a prescription shampoo.

I'm allergic to ingredients in a lot of shampoos and had the same symptoms. I have only been able to use Aussie Moist for the past 10+ years, and I only wash my hair twice a week. When I first cut down on washing it, it was more greasy for a while and then my scalp got used to it and I haven't had a problem since.
