Hair Care

This Sparked Me!

Last year i read an article about how shampoo leaves a residue on your hair and it advised washing your hair with baking soda. i started doing that every day and by the end of a month, my hair was no longer a dry, brittle, frizzy mess. and it isn't greasy either! my hair is shiny and curly now!

of course, you have to have curly hair to begin with!
i dissolve 1-2 tbsp in warm water and use it just like i would shampoo. you can buy a 5 lb bag of it at costco for 6 bucks. think of all the cash you will save on shampoo! and you will have great hair too!

    Mix the baking soda into hot water and dissolve it .... pour it through and if you have a lot of residue ... comb thru with a wide tooth comb ... rinse out and do again ... this is good for all hair types.

    How do you do this? Just pour it on and then it lathers?

    Very interesting. I've never heard of this before. I wonder if it works on tinted hair. ???

    Interesting, but I don't think that will work my hair (black hair). Maybe, one day I'll try it.
