Wash & Condition Hair
Dilute 1 tbsp. of baking soda in one cup of water on the spot in the shower or have it stored already diluted with essential oil if preferred to wash your hair. Do the same with 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar with one cup of water to condition your hair and receive ACV hair benefits. Leave the ACV in for 2-3 minutes before rinsing out. If you don’t like the smell of it, add a drop of essential oil.
If you are accustomed to using commercial hair products, you will experience a shift when transitioning to baking soda and ACV. Keep at it! Your hair will come out thicker and stronger, your skin (and all bodily systems) won’t have to deal with the toxic chemicals from your commercial shampoo and conditioner, and the world won’t have to endure more plastic bottles.
If your hair doesn’t accept the baking soda/ACV combination, there are plenty of other DIY recipes out there with more ingredients than this ultimate-minimalist list. Baking soda and ACV for hair care, either way, depending on your hair and scalp, can come in handy for spare use or in addition to your other natural hair care solutions.
