    Just a question: what is a baking soda treatment/ what is it meant to accomplish? And why low porosity hair specifically?

    I've never heard of it before....

    My understanding is that it opens the cuticles, allowing more moisture to penetrate. It makes low-porosity hair more porous, I believe.

    Ever since my disaster with the original baking soda conditioner treatment some years back, I've only done baking soda rinses, and I haven't done one of those in a VERY long time.

    Yup that's what I understood as well and it acts as a good cleanser and makes the hair softer (supposedly). What went wrong with your treatment?

    I described my experience on this site...don't know if you can find it though...

    I forget whether I mixed equal parts baking soda and conditioner or one part baking soda to two parts conditioner but whatever it was, it was too much. It felt like I'd given myself a texturizer: same intense curl definition, same intense dryness. It took a good six weeks for my hair to stop feeling like straw...and that's after trying EVERYTHING, including rain water, to get it to feel soft again.
