How To Save Money #21: Clean Your Hair with Baking Soda

You can use baking soda and apple cider vinegar to clean and rinse your hair. When I first heard this, I thought it might be a hoax, but I’ve been doing it for nearly a year now and am quite happy with it. It’s effective, non-toxic, and much better for the environment. My hair and scalp are much healthier, and I’ve saved a ton of money on shampoos and conditioners that were never quite what I wanted them to be.

The process:

  1. Take a few tablespoons of baking soda and dissolve in a cup of warm water.
  2. Pour the dissolved baking soda over your hair and rub it in a bit.
  3. Rinse with warm water.
  4. Take a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and dilute in a cup of warm water.
  5. Pour the diluted apple cider vinegar over your hair.
  6. Rinse with warm water.

I keep a small, blue, plastic container (with a lid) and a small plastic bottle of apple cider vinegar in the shower for this purpose. (For safety, use a non-breakable container–never glass.) I also keep a largish plastic container of baking soda next to the shower. Before I step into the shower, I put the baking soda into the blue container. Once I am in the shower, I use water from the shower head to dilute the baking soda and vinegar. (It gets cold pretty fast.)

Again, this method works, saves money, and is great for those trying to reduce the toxic load on their bodies.
