Baking soda shampoo
In a small squeeze bottle, mix baking soda and water in a ratio 1:3. Adjust the quantity according to the length of your hair, so if you have a long hair, mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda with 9 tablespoon of water.
Then, you can apply it on dry or wet hair, from the roots to the hair ends, and leave it to act for 1-3 minutes. Then, rinse it off with warm water.
Next, rinse the hair once more using apple cider vinegar. Mix 1 part of it with 4 parts of water. You can add some essential oil to improve the smell. Tilt the head backward in order to prevent apple cider vinegar from getting into the eyes. Tilt the head back and rinse the hair once again.
You can prepare the ACV in advance and keep it in a bottle in your bathroom, in order to use it whenever you need.
The first effects are visible after the first treatment, and after a few times, your hair will start growing with an accelerated speed, and the hair will be strong, shiny and incredibly healthy!
