Okay, here’s a really easy thing you can do for yourself at home: shampoo.
Save your last shampoo bottle and fill it with a ratio of 1 cup water: 1 tablespoon baking soda.
You have to shake it before you use it every time and it does NOT lather at all. You just kind of squirt it around your hair – you can tell where it goes because the water in the bottle will be colder than your shower water – and then massage it through your hair and rinse.
Your hair will feel really different after you wash because this will not strip it of all it’s oils like most store-bought shampoos will. You may think your hair is oily and unclean still, but just have a little faith – ignore the impulse to rewash your hair with something else; go ahead and get out of the shower. I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks and my hair is so soft and clean. I’m only washing it every other day unless I have some reason to do it every day (like a sweaty workout) and you would never know. Since I’m not drying my hair out with store bought shampoo, I assume it’s not mass producing unnecessary oil anymore and it looks great.
And that, my friends, is that. Conditioner coming soon – if you have any good recipes that don’t involved ingredients like egg, please let me know!
