So I have a slightly embarrassing story to share with you, I’ve been washing my hair with conditioner for the last week and wondering why my hair kept looking greasy. I can’t believe I didn’t catch on when it wasn’t lathering up like soap. Now I want to try making my own shampoo so this doesn’t happen again and it will save me money. I asked around at work and the people who make their own like to use baking soda and vinegar.
Baking Soda Shampoo and Vinegar Rinse
~1 part baking soda to 3 parts water (Shampoo)
~1 part apple cider vinegar to 4 parts water plus essential oil of your choosing (Vinegar rinse)
Apply to wet or dry hair starting at the roots and working out. Let it sit for 1-3 minutes and rinse it off with warm water. Follow with the vinegar rinse by tilting your head back and distributing the vinegar through your hair. Rinse with cold water.
Here are some books that will help you in your journey to homemade hair products.
