I've been using something similar:
Baking Soda with herb-infused water (Sage & Rosemary).
I don't rub it in vigorously, I just wet my hair in the shower, comb it, use a squeeze bottle to put it on, and then work it through. I wait a couple of minutes until I rinse it out (thoroughly).
It took a few days for my hair to adjust (I thought it wasn't working) but then it was OK.
The Sage & Rosemary combat the gray hair and alzheimers (the latter claim is according to recent UK studies).
I don't use any vinegar.
I have a small squeeze bottle of Safflower Oil (Vitamin E) and I put a drop of it in my hand, rub my hands together, and then work it into the ends and comb it through -- it's not much oil at all. It has made my hair much thicker.
I read an article that suggested making a similar dry shampoo with baking soda and ground oatmeal (ground to a powder). The directions were to part the hair in several spots, sprinkle the powdered mixture along the roots (to soak up the oil and dirt), and then comb it out.
The article said it was ideal for bed-ridden people who could not easily take showers.
