Six weeks no-poo and I see Farrah in the distance...

I made the leap and stopped shampooing my hair six weeks ago, learned how a high pH can really mess it up and have almost found my outer Farrah. Enter the apple cider vinegar rinse. Do you do this?

How can I tell if my recent hair loss is natural or a medication side effect?

Weird hairs on my head?

Gross Body Filter: I am female and have primarily straight brown, fairly fine hair. However, I frequently find these very curly, coarse black hairs growing on my scalp. (Dare I say pubic-like hairs?)
