Baking soda is present in the kitchen of most people, as it is a versatile product which can be used as a cooking ingredient, cleaning agent, and cosmetic item. However, baking soda is a powerful ingredient that can prevent hair loss and stimulate the growth of hair.
It will leave the hair soft, clean, and strong. Therefore, replace your regular shampoo with baking soda, and you will experience the following benefits:
- Boosts Hair Growth
Baking soda cleans the hair, prevents and treats hair loss, and significantly boosts the growth of hair.
- Cleans the hair
Baking soda will clean the hair from the residue of all other hair products, chemicals, and toxins, as well as excess oil and dirt.
- Removes Chlorine
It will also clean the hair and scalp from chlorine, and thus prevent hair damage.
All you have to do in order to reap these benefits is to mix some baking soda and water!
Combine water and baking soda in the ratio of 3-1. In the case of a long hair, mix 6 tablespoons of water and a tablespoon of this miraculous ingredient.
Rub the shampoo on the hair roots and go down to the hair ends. Leave it for a few minutes, and wash it off.
For best effects, rinse the hair with a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water afterward. You can also use baking soda as a dry hair shampoo, and here is one remarkable recipe:
- 1/2 cup of baking soda
- 1/2 cup of cornstarch
Mix the baking soda and the cornstarch in a mixing bowl. Then, transfer it to a suitable container.
Then, apply a small amount at the roots with the fingers, and then work it through the hair.
Note that you can replace cornstarch with fine-ground oatmeal or bentonite clay.
Note that this shampoo can leave white stains around the roots, but this can be easily solved.
Add some red clay to the mixture in case you have red hair, or add cocoa if your hair is brown. Try cinnamon in case you have red highlights.
