Hey y’all! I’ve been looking at Pinterest and I found a Try It that I think you’ll love!

Sadly, its not edible. BUT, it is super helpful! It is a natural alternative to shampoo!

Try It Tuesday Hair

 

Here’s what you need:

~Baking soda

~Water

~Vinegar

~Essential oils (not necessary, but comes in handy)

~Two squeeze bottles

 

There are two parts to this Try It. One is the “shampoo” and the other is the “conditioner”.

The shampoo is comprised of 1 parts baking soda to 3 parts water. I mixed 2 tablespoons of baking soda to 6 tablespoons of water for my shampoo:

The conditioner is 1 part vinegar (you can use white or apple cider) to 4 parts water. I also threw in 1 drop of eucalyptus essential oil and 2 drops of spearmint just to try to mask the vinegar smell.

Then, I washed and rinsed my hair. I won’t lie, it was weird not having my hairy all foamy. And the gritty nature of the baking soda made me feel like I was washing my hair with sand. And even though I added the essential oils, I could still smell the vinegar. (It gave me flashbacks to when my mom made us girls rinse our hair with vinegar all throughout elementary and junior high. It was a natural way to protect your hair from lice. My mom had THREE daughters with hair passed their booties; she about had a mental breakdown whenever we got lice from some kid at school. Can you imagine combing 6 feet of hair?! But still, even though it saved us all from the terror of those scalp-scratching bugs, I’d cry every time my mom made me pour vinegar on my head. But, I digress.)

I was still skeptical when I rinsed my hair. I figured I would have to wash my hair again because I knew that when I went to blow dry it that it would be a horrible mess. But it wasn’t! My tangle-prone hair was surprisingly easy to comb through and after I blow dried it, it didn’t look or feel greasy! I really liked it!
