Washing with Soda
Baking soda that is. I have been considering trying to cut out shampoo for a while now. I don't always love the way it makes me feel, and let's be honest, the good stuff is expensive. I know this sounds gross, but I don't mean I won't wash my hair. There is a trend called (I hate this name) going poo-less based around washing your hair with things like baking soda and vinegar. I was reticent, but after hearing Joy the Baker say she has done it and likes it, I thought I would give it a try. I went with the simple baking soda paste method, mixing the soda with water and then scrubbing it into my scalp. It was a bit more rinsing than I am used to, but it wasn't unpleasant, and this morning my hair felt great! If it continues to feel this good, I may never use shampoo again. I'll keep you updated.
