Learn in this post how to make a baking soda shampoo.

Not many people know that baking soda can be used to make an incredibly powerful home made shampoo to clean your scalp and hair efficiently and without irritations.

These days we really have to be careful with the hair products we use, because they are full of aggressive ingredients that can alter the pH of your skin, irritate your sebaceous glands and even trigger hair loss.

What is so bad about the shampoos you normally find in supermarkets?

These are just some of the harmful ingredients they normally contain:

  • SLS (sodium Sodium Lauryl)
  • Parabens
  • DEA/Diethanolamine
  • Different fragrances

While you may have heard of the first three, the word fragrance may not sound as an alarming term, but the scary truth is that it can mean the presence of more then 3000 separate chemical ingredients!

Here at we strongly recommend you to purchase only products that are free from such ingredients and fragrances, to preserve the health of your scalp and of your hair.

One of the best shampoos (tried successfully by hundreds of our subscribers) is the baking soda shampoo.

With its use you will be able to get rid of dandruff, and it will balance the oil secretion of your scalp.

Besides, it is effective, chemical free, simple and you will love how it treats your hair.

How to prepare a baking soda shampoo:

  • Mix 1 part of baking soda with 3 parts of water,
  • Pour the mix in an empty and clean bottle and shake.

Apply the mixture to your wet hair starting at the roots all the way to the ends, letting it sit for 2-3 minutes, and then rinsing with warm water.

The best “ follow up” to this shampoo is to use a home made conditioned with apple cider vinegar.
