    Too harsh alone. Needs to be mixed with something to get its pH down or will be harmful to hair after a year or so.

    been using baking soda on my scalp for about 2 years now. The hair just gets cleaned in the process of washing the scalp. no harmful effects. i suppose using vinegar afterwards would change the pH, but i haven’t done that regularly. No shampoo means no harmful chemicals like “fragrances”.

    I just got out of the shower after using the baking soda wash + apple cider vinegar rinse and I am pretty amazed! I was kind of unsure how it would work, but my hair felt clean (not “squeaky”) after the wash, and then silky as soon as I started pouring in the vinegar rinse. My hair feels soft, smooth, clean, healthy, balanced! I *think* there might still be a very slight vinegary smell but my hair is very short so it’s hard to tell. It’s also still a little damp so the smell might fade when dry. I usually shampoo and condition my hair once a week, so this might be the perfect alternative for me.

    Note: I have bleached out hair dyed pink, very suseptable to shampoo fading, but I see no color difference after using this treatment. That being said, I’ve on,y tried it once so there could be more fading with over use, but it sounds like this method is not intended for everyday anyway.

    The only thing is, when I mixed up the bottled I wasn’t really thinking and used the filtered water straight from my refrigerator, so I was pouring icy cold water over my head! Next time I might just bring the concentrated ingredients into the shower with me, and dilute them with the warm shower water.

    Is there any advantage to using filtered water, or is tap ok?

    1. An Organic Conversation says:

      Thanks for the comment, Katie! You might consider speaking with your local municipalities to get a water report. This will allow you to see what minerals are in your water that might affect your hair. From there, an inexpensive shower filter head could remove chlorine and some other minerals and/or metals, removing the need to mix with filtered water in advance. Chlorine can take color out of hair or bleach hair over time, whether it is colored or not. And in general, the baking soda clarifying treatment and apple cider vinegar is not recommended for color treated hair. If you experiment with other DIY shampoos, do let us know how your hair responds. Thank you for listening!
