i’m doing something i never thought i’d do, all in the name of mermaid hair! this article on refinery 29 inspired me, and as of a few days ago i’m going without shampoo and conditioner. instead i’ll be using a baking soda/water combo and occasionally an apple cider vinegar rinse. i’m also going to try to stay away from my blow dryer as much as possible. i love that if this works for me i’ll be simultaneously saving money on expensive hair products (i do tend to splurge in that department), improving the condition of my hair, and making this one area of my life more GREEN! do you think i’m crazy? would you ever do it? specifics about what i’m doing to keep my hair clean after the jump!
BAKING SODA HAIR WASH:
mix one tablespoon baking soda with 1 cup warm water and stir until it’s fully dissolved. pour into an old shampoo bottle and you’re ready to go!
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR CONDITIONER:
one part apple cider vinegar to one part water (more info on the benefits of apple cider vinegar in hair here)
**i’ll check back in via the comment section in a few days to let you know how this little experiment is going!
