Baking Soda & Acidic Rinses
So I'm back to Baking Soda/ ACV Rinses and I feel like kicking myself for even thinking about shampoos!! Not only was my sclap so dry and itchy but it felt sore in the crown where I still have issues from last relaxer damage even though it's been 4+ years.
|Before: 3 day old blow-out bun. Super dry and dull hair!|
- I used my old mix of 2 tbsp Baking Soda to 3oz warm water and a squirt of my fav moisturizing conditioner just to thicken it up a bit. I mixed everything together in an applicator bottle and after wetting my hair apply the mix to my SCALP. Massage to remove build-up from scalp then rinse. This gets my hair completely clean without stripping or drying. It also helped to kill my dandruff andd that's not an issue for me anymore.
- I applied Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle (mostly on the ends) and let sit for 3-5 mins then de-tangled and rinse. (LOVE)
- I didn't have apple cider vinegar on hand so I used half of a squeezed lemon for my acidic rinse added to about 4 oz of water. I usually let this sit for a min or 2 then rinse with cool/cold water (closes the cuticles of the strands resulting in smoother hair as well as restores the hair normal PH levels).
