There are so many shampoos on the market, and it is very difficult to choose one that is suitable for hair type and budget type. The amount of harsh chemical contents is also alarming due to the potential to cause more damage than cause hair improvement. Keeping hair clean is not a complicated science; Hundreds of shampoos and brands have been launched on the market, each with different formulas and different claims.
The latest and most surprising news about keeping hair clean isn’t about a new brand of shampoo, it’s about a new way to wash hair. Now people are talking about washing hair not with shampoo, but with baking soda and apple cider vinegar instead. Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a long-known and widely used natural mineral. In short, it’s one of those harmless chemicals, along with apple cider vinegar.
Baking soda cleans dirt from hair and keeps it absorbent so moisture can enter and absorb. Using apple cider vinegar to rinse will literally “lock” the moisture in, leaving hair soft and silky, not dry and stiff.
The method currently being talked about is washing hair with a baking soda mixture and rinsing it with apple cider vinegar. This shampoo and conditioner replacement keeps hair clean for longer, with only needing washing more than twice a week. Yet people agree that hair stays clean for longer, feels soft, smooth and smells super clean.
This is really amazing because we assume that washing hair with baking soda and vinegar will definitely smell the vinegar smell. Hair smells clean with no trace of vinegar smell.
The formula is a mixture of baking soda and water to wash hair, and a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water to rinse later. After a few weeks of use and modification, the hair will come out smoother and cleaner for longer, and a lot of money will be saved for buying shampoo and conditioner.
Mixing 1 part baking soda with 1 part water. (For example – mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of water.) Use the same ratio to rinse the vinegar. Increase the amount using the same proportions for longer and thicker hair.
Wash hair and massage scalp with baking soda mixture. Rinse well. Massage the scalp with vinegar, then rinse well. Renew just after all 3-4 days.
Give hair a few weeks to adjust to the new washing method, then see and appreciate the difference.
