Baking Soda and Vinegar, Home Made ‘Shampoo’ to a Dry or Wet Hair

If you want your skin and hair care products completely natural, and you are a complete DIY person when it comes to your beauty routines, then you are probably always on a mission to find a safe product that will not harm your health or expose you to potentially harmful chemicals. We suggest that you try this treatment and enjoy the results.


Shampoos dry out your scalp, and the lack of natural oils only stimulates the oil production. If you stop using your shampoo you might face the fact that you hair gets greasier than normal for the first few weeks, or just until your scalp adjusts.

If you start using this method, your hair will not get as oily as it does usually. All you should do is repeat the method every 2-3 days. Baking soda and vinegar treatment is super-cheap, effective, simple and chemical-free, and we bet that you will love it as much as we do.

You may find it hard to wash your hair without all the shampoo foam at first, but be patient and wait for the final results.

Baking Soda

First, mix 1 part of baking soda and 3 parts of water. For shoulder length hair, for example, mix 2 to 3 tablespoons of baking soda and 3 times that amount of water. Y

You should better mix the ingredients in a small squeeze bottle. You can adjust the dosing depending on your hair length.

Apply the home made ‘shampoo’ to a dry or wet hair. Start at the roots and work to the ends. Leave the mixture for 1 – 3 minutes and rinse well. Warm water works better, as it will remove any remains.

After you have washed and rinsed the baking soda mixture, it is time to apply a vinegar rinse.
