Baking Soda Shampoo That Will Save Your Hair
If you want to use completely natural skin and hair care products in order not to harm your health or expose to potentially harmful chemicals, try this treatment and enjoy the results.
Mix 1 part of baking soda and 3 parts 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.
You may find it hard to wash your hair without all the shampoo foam at first, but be patient and wait for the final results. In order to remove any remains, use warm water.
After you have washed your hair, apply a vinegar rinse.
Combine 1 part of apple cider vinegar and 4 parts of water. To avoid the vinegar smell, add a few drops of lavender, peppermint, and/or rosemary essential oil to the vinegar mixture.
It imay be better if you prepare this rinse ahead of time and keep the squeeze bottle in your bathroom.
Then, tilt the head back and close your eyes, to avoid the possibility of getting some of the vinegar mixture into your eyes. Now, distribute the rinse through your hair.
Your hair will be more than grateful!
