Nowadays, most of the products we use during our daily grooming are not only completely synthetic but also full of substances that can be hazardous to health, as they pass through our skin through the pores and enter the skin and blood flow. Natural home remedies are good for your overall health and today we are going to explain a Natural shampoo Made With Sodium Bicarbonate and Vinegar.
This happens, for example, with shampoos. The manufacturers are looking for products that smell good and that foam a lot, and we do not realize that we use extremely aggressive products that in the long run can be very dangerous for health. These contain, for example, the famous sodium lauryl sulfate, a surfactant (surfactant) that was used as an industrial detergent or degreaser. Applied to our scalp, it eliminates our natural fat layer, irritates and dries our skin, in addition to being toxic.
Ecological shampoos are a natural and healthy alternative because they are made with natural ingredients and are flavored with essential oils, but these shampoos are unfortunately much more expensive than conventional shampoos.
Faced with this situation, a simple solution is to recover the traditional formulas that are natural and do not cost a lot of money, such as washing our hair with a mixture of sodium bicarbonate and apple vinegar.
What Do You Need To Make Shampoo?
- Sodium bicarbonate
- Apple Vinegar
- Two Plastic Bottles
How to Prepare Shampoo With Sodium Bicarbonate and Vinegar?Dissolve one tablespoon of baking soda in a glass of warm water and fill the first bottle with this mixture. This mixture is actually the shampoo itself so it will be possible to increase or reduce the amount of bicarbonate depending on the type of hair (more or less fat). The more you have greasy hair, the more you have to add Sodium Bicarbonate.
Mix a quarter glass of apple vinegar and a glass of water and fill the second bottle. This second mixture will serve as a conditioner and in the same way, we will adapt the amount of vinegar to our hair type. The drier the hair, the more vinegar will be added.
How to Apply it?
- Apply the mixture containing bicarbonate to different areas of the head and massage gently (with wet hair).
- Rinse with water. Your hair will become a little rough, but the vinegar will then rebalance your pH.
- Then apply the vinegar mixture and rinse again.
Advice To Making ShampooWe can add essential oils to aromatize or even increase certain properties. For example, tea tree oil will help eliminate dandruff, rosemary oil will help prevent hair loss, and lavender oil will relax the scalp and leave a pleasant scent. In all cases, the smell of vinegar disappears when the hair is dry.
If we have dry hair, we can apply a little jojoba or sesame oil after washing, and from time to time apply a moisturizing mask.When we stop using chemicals, it takes time to adapt the hair to regenerate their natural protective layer, and that is why during the first days, even the first weeks, it is quite possible to have more oily hair or have more dandruff. If we are patient, in the long run, our hair will make it good!
