Baking Soda: Not Just For Cooking
I drank the Kool-Aid, y’all.
I’ve never had scalp problems or issues with buildup *knock on wood* But I’ve been seeing tons of baking soda & apple cider vinegar tutorials on YouTube lately that have convinced me that I need one.
As you can see from the following pics, I had all kinds of goobley-goo hiding in my dreads. And this is from someone who washes 2-3x/week and doesn’t use any solids in her hair.
My hair felt light afterward, similar to how it feels after using a clarifying shampoo. I also noticed that my hair had incredible sheen, seemingly more than after a usual wash.
I took a few pics, but the real effect couldn’t quite be captured.
Although I liked the results, I honestly can’t say this is something I’ll incorporate into my routine. I didn’t see much of a difference between this and plain ol’ clarifying shampoo.
My hair also wasn’t as dry as I expected it to be directly after the cleanse, so perhaps I need to tweek it a bit / cleanse longer. Because I like to try everything more than once, I’ll revisit this and post those results, too.
Check out my short video of the process below, and share your baking soda / ACV experiences and suggestions in the comments.
