Baking Soda shampoo and vinegar conditioner
So I'm using totally natural products to wash and condition my hair. Baking Soda, aka Bicarbonate of Soda in a solution(the big bottle/bottom photo). 2 washes with this and rinse. The final rinse is with diluted ACV(Top photo). The recipe for the shampoo is here: http://www.how-to-boost-your-immune-system.com/baking-soda-shampoo.html
I always wondered why B-soda didnt work for me (from back in the day when I had braidlocks). Now I know why. It's due to hardness of water in the UK. You have to approach it a little differently as you will see when you read the link above. I think it's great. I got VERY good results. My scalp was clean clean clean. What's more the ACV rinse that followed conditioned beautifully. I mean it left my hair really soft and fluffy. Here CV rinse http://www.how-to-boost-your-immune-system.com/vinegar-hair-rinse.html
I just thought I'd give this a go. Apparently using a baking soda or Borax solution to wash your hair/scalp is very healthy and the only way to deep clean. The borax also kills every unwanted fungus, bacteria excess sebum etc to give a happy environment for your scalp. I havent got any borax, but as soon as I do Ill be here with the recipe. Meanwhile you can get a deep clean this way. You can aslo inhibit unwanted scalp issues(both seen and unseen) by putting neat acv on your scalp and let sit overnight. Rinse out in the morning. Be careful not to put it on cuts/bruised areas. It can sting a little but that ok. Just remember you do this entirely at your own risk. I did it and it was fine.
