Due to its multiple healing properties, baking soda has a wide range of uses, for cleaning, cooking, and for treating various medical conditions.
Yet, it seems that we learn a new use of this versatile ingredient every single day.
This incredibly beneficial substance enhances the quality of your hair and eliminates the residue of shampoo and conditioners, providing a long-lasting shine of the hair. You can use it instead of your regular shampoo and enjoy its amazing effects.
If you are a fan of DIY remedies and want to avoid the harsh effects of commercial products which are loaded with chemicals, we will show you a way to prepare your own natural shampoo which will provide incredible results.
You may find it awkward to use this shampoo at the beginning, as it does not make foam as other shampoos, but you will get used to it over time, and its effects will definitely make you choose it over commercial hair products.
This is what to do:
In a small squeeze bottle, mix baking soda and water in a ratio 1:3. Adjust the quantity according to the length of your hair, so if you have a long hair, mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda with 9 tablespoon of water.
Then, you can apply it on dry or wet hair, from the roots to the hair ends, and leave it to act for 1-3 minutes. Then, rinse it off with warm water.
Next, rinse the hair once more using apple cider vinegar. Mix 1 part of it with 4 parts of water. You can add some essential oil to improve the smell. Tilt the head backward in order to prevent apple cider vinegar from getting into the eyes. Tilt the head back and rinse the hair once again.
You can prepare the ACV in advance and keep it in a bottle in your bathroom, in order to use it whenever you need.
The first effects are visible after the first treatment, and after a few times, your hair will start growing with an accelerated speed, and the hair will be strong, shiny and incredibly healthy!
