For a few years now I have been on a mission to find the best way of washing my hair naturally without using chemical-laced shampoos. I’ve gone over several recipes and put the strangest things in my hair, from a mixture of flour and herbs to eggs and beer. I was too lazy to write them even though some of them worked, but this one I feel I must share with you as it has been the best, easiest, cleanest and cheapest solution!!
The secret ingredient is…BICARBONATE SODA.
Not to be confused with baking soda, its slightly different.
Bicarbonate soda is a naturally occurring compound found on the Earth’s surface, that is mined and used for a huge number of purposes. For me personally, its a miracle cure for everything! Do be careful though, there are some chemical fakes out there, but in reality it should be mined and boxed straight as it is, kind of like salt.
How do I use Bicarbonate Soda instead of shampoo to wash my hair?
The amount you use will depend on how long your hair is. My hair is just past my shoulders and I use about 3 heaping tea spoons of soda, but I use that for my hair and body (so probably 2 would do).
Take a little cup (plastic is better since you don’t want glass or ceramic breaking in the shower) and put 2 tea spoons of soda into it.
