Baking Soda Shampoo

- March 1, 2012

So I have already talked about this recipe a bit in my first post about natural beauty. I have tried it out a couple more times since then. The idea is to use regular old baking soda and water to make enough thick paste to coat your hair. Leave the paste on for 5 minutes or so and rinse out.

The biggest difference to traditional shampoo is no lather, which can make you feel like it’s not “working.” It is however stripping all the residual product that has built up on your hair and will leave it feeling very clean. I have very fine, very straight hair and this treatment always results in more body and texture. If however, I use this too¬†frequently it dries my hair out.

I love to use it as a clarifying shampoo every so often. If you had very oily hair you might be able to use this as an everyday shampoo but like I said, for my semi-dry hair that would be too much.

As always, if anyone tries it out, I would love to know how it goes. Just leave a comment below.

    I tried this when I went camping a few weeks ago. It was fantastic. My hair is usually so oily by the third day of not washing it that it makes me feel horrible. When I used the baking soda my hair kept the curl from the wash and it did not get greasy. The texture is fascinating as it gave my hair more volume.

    Thanks. . . for sharing such a simply technique
