Does your conventional shampoo ruin your hair instead of repairing it? Well, that’s because most conventional shampoos are packed with chemicals which damage your hair over time.
Personal care products use around 10,500 different chemicals, and only 11% of them are proved to be safe and healthy. Even though not every brand uses all of these chemicals, it’s good to check the label carefully before buying it.
Research shows that many shampoos contain preservatives, surfactants, and antimicrobial agents which can impair your hair health in different ways. They can seep into your body through the scalp and skin causing damaging effects.
But, you can avoid all this by making your own natural shampoo that will not only nurture your hair but also make it grow faster.
The secret ingredient in this natural hair shampoo is baking soda. Once you try it you’ll never deal with hair loss or hair damage ever again. But, you should use it for a month to see noticeable results.
Why Is Baking Soda Good for Your Hair
This natural ingredient is a great exfoliating agent which removes dead skin cells and boost blood flow to the scalp. This, in turn, stimulates hair growth. Also, it creates more volume in your hair, making it shiny and silky.
What’s more, you can use baking soda to lighten your hair or remove hair dye.
How to Make Baking Soda Shampoo
Things You Need
- 1 box of baking soda
- 1 bottle of apple cider vinegar
- Warm water
- An empty bottle
If you have a short hair, combine a glass of warm water with 60 grams of baking soda. If your hair is long, double the amount and mix two glasses of warm water with 120 grams of baking soda. Store the solution in an empty bottle and shake well.
Apply it to your hair every 3 days, making sure it stays for 5 minutes each time. Next, rinse your hair with a solution of warm water, apple cider vinegar, and lavender oil. The vinegar will nourish your hair, acting as a natural hair conditioner.
Don’t forget that you should do this hair treatment at least for a month to see visible results.
Note – do not use this shampoo every day since too much baking soda can make your hair brittle and weak.
