So far, I don't see any miraculous things happening to my hair, but also no bad results either. I think that I got the baking soda amount right on the first try, and my hair is coming perfectly clean and not dry or straw-like. The apple cider vinegar is making me gag like crazy, so I think I'm going to find a new container and add some ingredients such as honey, lemon, mint...and whatever else I come up with, to tame the smell. It is a little hard to apply a liquid to your hair and feel like it's doing the trick. I keep finding myself adding more just to be on the safe side, because it's hard to tell which spots have been adequately rinsed.
Here are pictures from days 1-3, and I will add a few more after a few more days have gone by.
So, back to my busy day yesterday. Nathan came home Wednesday from being away for three weeks, and we were very glad to see each other and just relax and get to bed early. Thursday morning (yesterday), Nathan got up to spend time with Adelyn so I could sleep some more, but after about an hour of hearing her fussing and crying a lot, I got up to see what was wrong. He told me she had fallen and had been crying ever since and holding her left wrist, which she had also done the day before. We decided she should get some Tylenol and go get an x-ray, just in case. She was still using her left arm and hand to wave, clap, grab toys...but would cry when she would try to put pressure on it or if we would touch it certain ways.
We went to WakeMed North and they examined her, didn't see too much of concern, but did an x-ray just to be safe, and sure enough, she has a small buckle fracture in her left radius. The doctor said it was a very minor fracture and that he wouldn't even recommend casting it if she weren't going to continue falling on it as a wobbly new walker, but that since she kept landing on it, we should put a cast on to be safe.
We got in to the orthopedic specialist later that afternoon and got Adelyn a nice pink cast. She did awesome during the process and was so well-behaved and brave, and is now handling her casted arm like a champ.
