Recently I heard that mixing baking soda with your shampoo, gives your hair volume & leaves your hair less oily.
So…. Last week I decided to try it
I used 2 spoon fulls of baking soda and mixed it with my John Frieda sheer blonde shampoo.(As seen below)
I turned into this purple/cloudy mixture, make sure to mix well and no baking soda clumps could be seen. I lathered as I normally would, it didn’t have this soap, suds feel to it, but no worries ladies it doing its job. Make sure to gently massage entire scalp and let it sit for 1-3 minutes. Rinse scalp well follows with your conditioner as you normally word. I let my hair air dry and noticed it did, in fact, have a lot of volume to it. I was surprised.
Back Story on Baking Soda:
Baking soda is known as a fantastic cleaning product in general. Its main benefit is the fact that it is a mild alkali with fine, slightly abrasive particles. These two factors work together to break down dirt and grease incredibly effectively, leaving your hair super squeaky clean. It also is not a common irritant and so should not cause issues for most people.
The true test would be overnight because my hair becomes so oily overnight it’s ridiculous. I tossed my hair in a bun and went to the bed, the next morning first I did was check my hair and I kid you not. My hair had a ton of volume and it wasn’t as I was in shock. I am swearing by this I even tested it with my Kevin Murphy shampoo as well, I had the same result. The only thing I would avoid is my tips, they did get a little dry. But overall my hair feels amazing. I will be continuing using baking soda for the next couple weeks and I will be updating you all on how it continues working for me.
I’d loved to hear if you’ve have used baking soda with your shampoo and how it worked for you???
