There are a lot of weird beauty trends that float around the internet, but this is a solution that can actually make your beauty routine a lot easier.
Your hair is your crowning glory, and good hair days make everything in life better. It’s the worst when your hair is oily, and even if it doesn’t look bad, just the feeling of having fatty locks can make your head feel heavy and put your mood down in the dumps.
Often, the reason for overly oily hair is the use of shampoo. Shampoo actually dries out your hair by stripping it of its natural oils, and so your scalp tries to compensate by overproducing extra oil. This is the reason that washing your hair every day with commercial shampoos can cause damage; you’ll then need to wash your hair every day to keep the oil away, and this is definitely no fun.
So get ready for the solution: baking soda. The newest idea to keep your hair healthy and fresh is a mixture of baking soda and apple cider vinegar. This may sound crazy, but it’s easy, cheap and simple to do:
1) Mix 1 spoon of baking soda with 2 spoons of the vinegar
2.) Apply to wet hair, just like you would with normal shampoo, scrub and rinse
3) You can choose to add coconut or lavender oil to hair to get rid of the vinegar smell
The first week or so may be a hard transition time for your hair, for it to get used to this new routine, but don’t despair. Give it a little time and you’ll have infinitely happier and healthier hair!
