After I finish the shampoos and conditioners I currently have, I’m going to try this:
- Start by mixing 1 part baking soda with 3 parts water. I have shoulder length hair and mix about 2 to 3 tablespoon of baking soda with 3 times that amount of water in a small squeeze bottle. You can adjust this depending on your hair length.
- Apply the baking soda and water mixture to dry or wet hair by starting at the roots and working to the ends.
- Let it sit for 1 - 3 minutes then rinse with warm water.
- After washing and rinsing with the baking soda mixture, you’ll want to apply a vinegar rinse.
- Mix 1 part white or apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water. To minimize the vinegar smell, I also add lavender, peppermint, and/or rosemary essential oils to the vinegar mixture. I like to mix a big batch of this ahead of time and keep it in a squeeze bottle in the shower.
- Tilt your head back, close your eyes (to avoid getting this mixture in your eyes), and distribute through your hair.
- If you have longer hair like I do, I like to then (still keeping my eyes closed) tilt my head forward and distribute more rinse through the ends.
- After a few seconds, rinse with cold water. The cold water helps to seal in moisture, smooth the hair, and add shine. I have straight hair and have noticed that this really made a difference with eliminating frizz and static.
