How To Naturally Wash Your Hair11
This guest post is from Alix at Blessed In Homemaking.
How do you wash your hair? Most people use shampoo. Did you know that there is another way?
Except for the rare occasion that I shower away from home, I haven’t used shampoo or conditioner in about 3 years.
I use baking soda for shampoo, and apple cider vinegar for conditioner.
I put the baking soda in a squirt bottle and fill it with water. I use around 2 Tbsp of baking soda.
I use 1/4 C. vinegar in a jar of water. I don’t rinse out the vinegar. You can if you want, but I prefer not to. Vinegar doesn’t smell once it dries.
For extra conditioning I sometimes add an egg yolk to the vinegar (you rinse this out, of course.) Be sure to rinse with cool water, or you may find cooked egg in your hair!
These are the amounts that work for my hair, and they are a good starting place. You may need to tweak it a bit to find what works for you.
It can take your hair 2-4 weeks to detox before it starts feeling and looking good. It took mine about 2 weeks. My hair feels so good using this method, and it’s so much better for your health and your hair’s health. Store bought products are full of toxic and carcinogenic ingredients, even the “organic” or “all natural” ones.
Another plus to using this method is that (for me at least), my hair only needs to be washed every 3-5 days. It just stays so much cleaner, and doesn’t get oily like it did when I washed it with shampoo.
Do you clean your hair naturally? Are you interested in doing so?
