Do you go for the one that smells nice, when you buy a shampoo, and the word ‘fragrance’ might not sound bad to you, but actually if you see it on a label, that means that you are about to buy a product that contains over 4,000 separate chemicals. Do you want that on your hair?

Start like this
You may find it hard at first to wash your hair without all the shampoo foam, but be patient and wait for the final results.
Start by mixing 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.
Mix the ingredients in a small squeeze bottle, and you can adjust the dosing depending on your hair length.
You can apply it 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 removes any remains.
When you are done washing and rinsing, apply the vinegar rinse.
Combine 1 part of apple cider vinegar and 4 parts of water. You can add a few drops of lavender, peppermint, and/or rosemary essential oil to the vinegar mixture, if you can’t stand the smell of vinegar. It’s handier if you could mix a big batch of this rinse ahead of time and keep the squeeze bottle in your bathroom.
How To Apply It?
Tilt your head back and close your eyes. This way you will avoid the possibility of getting some of the vinegar mixture into your eyes.Distribute the rinse through your hair.
If you have longer hair, tilt your head forward (still keeping your eyes closed), and distribute some more of the rinse on the ends.
Wait for a few seconds, then rinse with cold water. The cold water will seal the moisture in, smooth the hair, and add a healthy shine. If you have problems with frizz and static, this method will be sure to help you.
