Yes, yes… You are reading it right. Sodium Bicarbonate on your hair. If you are wondering, I highly doubt it will react in the same way it reacts with food. But let’s just look at what it does, or what the benefits are.
Sodium Bicarbonate as Shampoo
Sodium bicarbonate has properties that will improve the quality of your hair. It can rid your hair of remaining product build up, or any chemicals that can be found in shampoos and conditioners, promoting a healthy glow to your hair.
Surprised? It really will wash your hair! If you are the type of person who would rather use natural products that will not damage your health, avoiding exposing yourself to chemical substances, this method is for you.
The recipe is short and quick to make.
Mix a spoon of sodium bicarbonate in a cup/mug with water.
But the measurement should depend on your hair length. You should have enough to cover your head. If you have shoulder-length hair, mix three spoons of sodium bicarbonate in three cups/mugs of water.
You can apply the mix to dry or wet hair. Start from your roots up to the ends of your hair and let it sit for 1 to 3 minutes. Wash well with warm water to remove completely the residue.
After washing, apply apple cider vinegar. Combine 1 part apple cider vinegar with 4 parts of water. In order to avoid the strong smell of vinegar, apply a few drops of lavender essential oil, or maybe peppermint to the mix of vinegar with water.
To avoid the mix running into your eyes, apply it with your head bent backwards. There is no need to wash it after.
Sodium Bicarbonate to Eliminate Excess Oil
Let’s face it, oily hair seems like it is always dirty and it is hard to manage because it portrays the permanent horrible oily look.
To eliminate the excess oil in the hair and on the scalp, the properties of the sodium bicarbonate can be of extreme advantage. They will help clean and keep the hair looking and feeling fresh.
How to obtain this result?
Mix a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate with your normal shampoo and use it normally, only letting it sit for a few more minutes. Rinse with cold water. Remember to apply it frequently in order to obtain a result.
So what do you think? Would you try it? Have you tried it?
