Baking soda is awesome for so many different things. Many of us have heard about baking soda for hair growth. If you’re tired of forking over big bucks for commercial shampoos with questionable elements, there’s an easy choice. Grab just two ingredients from your kitchen and make your baking soda shampoo for hair growth.
We all know how difficult it can be to choose a shampoo. It’s not equally simple as choosing beneficial and natural oils, because your shampoo needs to clean your hair and scalp as well.
What is actually shocking that baking soda works great for hair but also makes the hair health better once you start using. Let us see the directions to make homemade baking soda shampoo for hair growth.
1. Baking soda shampoo: (hair growth shampoo)
Things you will need:
- baking soda
- Mix baking soda and water to the ratio of 1 to 16 oz of water (approx 450 ml)
- For example, If you have waist length hair, then mix 2-3 tbsp of baking soda with 700-800 ml water (basically 3 times about it).
- Now, you are ready to jump into the shower.
- Apply the baking soda shampoo to wet hair by starting from the roots till the ends.
- massage very gently for 1 minute and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
- Rinse with lukewarm water.
- Post rinsing with water, you can rinse your hair with vinegar as it is excellent for hair preventing static and frizzy hair.
2. Apple cider vinegar shampoo: (hair growth shampoo)
Things you will need:
- Apple cider vinegar
- Mix 1 part of apple cider vinegar with 4 parts of water.
- You can also add few drops of essential oil to it.
- Apply this apple cider vinegar shampoo to the scalp and let it sit for 5 minutes. Make sure to cover all your hair and scalp with it.
- Rinse with warm water.
Both the above shampoos are great for hair growth. The apple cider vinegar will help to get rid of dandruff completely by making the scalp clean and fresh. therefore, this is one of the best dandruff home remedies.
- Baking soda shampoo works best when it’s mixed right before you apply it. Dilute it properly and don’t leave it in too long. You might pick up instructions online to mix baking soda with water using a 1:3 ratio to form a paste. While this might benefit your hair for a few uses, it will damage your hair over time. It needs a LOT of water to lower the pH of baking soda into the secure zone.
- Pay attention to how your hair feels after the baking soda, wash. How does your hair feel the next day or a week later? If your hair feels dry or brittle, you might want to use less baking soda in your wash, or give your hair some time before you do another rinse.
- Commercial shampoo strips your hair of its natural oils, causing your scalp to produce more and more. Baking soda doesn’t do this (and that’s a good thing), but it will take time for your body to adjust its oil output. Don’t be surprised if your hair feels greasier (or drier) than usual when you first get to the substitution. As soon as your body adapts, your hair will look and feel better than ever, and it’ll stay fresh longer, as well. Most baking soda shampooers find that they only need to wash their hair a few times a week.
- You can also mix little baking soda in shampoo if you have oiled your hair.
