Shampoo acts as a detergent; shampoo cleans your hair, but it also strips it of all the healthy oil your body naturally produces. These oils protect your hair and keep it soft and strong. Shampoo also has all kinds of chemicals… most i cant even pronounce.
Baking soda can work wonders for your hair along with its other many household helps. It’s gentle, it’s the weakest alkaline, and it very gently clarifies hair from chemical buildup.
Apple cider vinegar is mildly acidic, working well to counteract the baking soda, and thus acts as a great replacement for conditioner. It detangles the hair folicles, seals the cuticle, and balances the hair’s pH balance. A little can go a very long way, just like the baking soda. The standard recipe is also one tablespoon apple cider vinegar to one cup water.
