Washing your hair is one of the worst things you can do to it. Crazy, right? You would think that getting out all of that dirt, grime, and grease would benefit it! Well, your shampoo more than likely contains tons of harmful ingredients, chemicals, and can cause lots of yucky product buildup on your hair that can weigh it down and prevent you from being able to style it. Want to know how to save your hair from being harmed PLUS get it squeaky clean? Wash it with baking soda! The baking soda and vinegar method is cheap, effective, simple and chemical-free! Here is how you can use this method.
Wash your hair with baking soda, then rinse it with an apple cider vinegar rinse. I have discussed this kind of rinse before, but I will go over it again in a sec!
Mix 1 part baking soda with 3 parts water. If you have shoulder length hair, mix about 2-3 tbsp of baking soda with 3x that much water in a bottle. Apply the baking soda and water mixture to dry or wet hair by starting at the roots and working it through to the ends. Let it sit for 1 – 3 minutes then rinse it out with warm water. After washing and rinsing with the baking soda mixture, you’ll want to use a vinegar rinse. Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water. Lean your head back and close your eyes, then rinse the mixture through your hair. Rinse with cold water to seal in the moisture and shine!
I am excited to see how this method will improve my hair, by keeping it shiny, healthy, and frizz-free! Have you ever tried a baking soda shampoo? Comment below!
