Baking soda shampoo
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 example, in a 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 to 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.
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. Turn your head backward and make sure you don’t get any of the vinegar in your eyes. Apply the ACV rinse on your entire hair length and that’s it.
After a few treatments, you’ll see how healthy, shiny and strong your hair looks!
