We’ve all heard about the versatility of baking soda and we know that we can use it for cooking and cleaning, as well as in the treatment of a number of medical conditions, thanks to its healing properties. Baking soda can be used to improve your hair quality and clean it thoroughly from any conditioner or shampoo remains, giving it a healthy shine just after a few treatments. You can use it instead of your regular shampoo and you’ll be amazed by the results.
Mix 2 tablespoon of baking soda and 6 tablespoons of water in a small squeeze bottle. You can adjust the dosing depending on your hair length, for instance, in case of shoulder length hair, mix 2 to 3 tablespoons of baking soda and 3 times that amount of water.
- Apply the homemade baking soda shampoo to a dry or wet hair. Start at the roots and work to the ends. Leave the mixture for 1 – 3 minutes and rinse well.
It may be weird washing the hair without shampoo foam at the beginning but you’ll get used to it. After you see the final results you’ll wish you’d started this sooner. Use warm water to rinse it all off your hair.
Afterwards rinse your hair with Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). Mix 1 part of ACV with 4 parts of water and if you don’t like the smell you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. You can make this rinse beforehand and keep it in a squeeze bottle it the bathroom. Tilt your head backwards and make sure you don’t get any of the vinegar in your eyes.
