We have heard about the versatility of baking soda and know that it can be used for cooking and cleaning, also in the treatment of medical conditions, thanks to its healing powers. But, every day we are finding out something new about this ingredient, making us love it even more.
If you want your skin and hair care products completely natural, and you are a complete DIY person when it comes to your beauty routines, then you are probably always on a mission to find a safe product that will not harm your health or expose you to potentially harmful chemicals. We suggest that you 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 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.
Afterward, rinse your hair with 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.
This method is simple, inexpensive and chemical-free, and you will definitely feel a difference after just a couple of uses!
