A little update on the no shampoo front!
It’s been a little over a week, and my hair already feels and looks so different! It’s fuller and more voluminous, softer, shinier, and it just feels cleaner. Frank really likes his hair, too. About once a day, he’ll feel his curls and exclaim, “Wow! It’s so soft!” Before this, his hair was constantly dry and frizzy. Now his curls are softer and more tamed. It’s amazing.
Also, a little update on ratio of baking soda to Apple Cider Vinegar. The best ratio I’ve found for myself is 1 TBSP baking soda to 2 TBSP ACV. Frank’s been using 2 tsp baking soda to 1 TBSP ACV.
Now that it’s been a week, I thought I’d post an updated pic. Here ya go!
You make a large batch of it?? It would be silly to make a batch every time you want to clean your hair!
I don’t do this anymore. Now, I just wash with water: http://www.revivedkitchen.com/2013/02/beyond-no-poo-water-washing-update/
But when I did do this, I mixed it each time. Maybe if you try this you’ll understand. You can’t make a huge amount and just store it in your shower. It’s a diluted base and a diluted acid. Not concentrated soap.
When you use this, do you also use some form of conditioner?
Hi, is there any particular brand of baking soda that you recommend? Thanks!
I use Arm & Hammer because I can buy it in bulk at Costco. 13.5 lbs for $6 or something like that. It is also aluminum fee, 100% sodium bicarbonate.
