Baking Soda Shampoo

Keep your hair happy and healthy all summer long using this natural, chemical-free method.To understand why your hair will love being washed with baking soda shampoo, you have to understand what regular shampoo does to your hair and scalp. Traditional shampoos are really detergents. They use chemicals to strip your hair and scalp of dirt and oil.Shampoo strips the hair shaft and scalp of sebum (the natural oils created by your scalp). Shampoos also contain a lot of harmful ingredients. Some of the worst chemical-offenders are:

Sodium Lauryl
Laureth Sulfate
DEA/Diethanolamine
Parabens
Fragrance

Baking Soda Shampoo
Baking soda on the other hand is great for your hair because it removes build up and residue of styling products. It will leave your hair feeling amazing and clean with more body. Great for people with oily hair too!

Start by mixing 3-4 tablespoon of baking soda and 2 cups of water in a bottle. After wetting your hair in the shower, just squirt it on the roots of your hair and rub it in. This is a gentler way to clean your hair with fewer chemicals than regular shampoo and no detergents that strip the natural oils from your hair.
After washing and rinsing with the baking soda mixture, you’ll want to apply a vinegar rinse.

Vinegar Rinse as conditioner

Mix 1 part white or apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water. If you take 1/2 cup vinegar mix it with 2 cups of water. To minimize the vinegar smell, you can add 5 drops of Lavender or Rosemary Essential oil to the vinegar mixture.Tilt your head back,and distribute through your hair. After a few minutes, rinse with cold water. The vinegar rinse will smooth the hair, adds moisture and shine to your hair.
