    Hair Luv Routine
    I switched up my hair care routine to all natural non-mass marketed homemade products! "Sonrisa" reminded me about the apple cider vinegar rinse and so I tried it again and I loved it. Then she mentioned using baking soda and water as a natural hair and scalp cleanser. I tried that again and my scalp was cleaner than ever without feeling stripped dry. I did some research on the chemicals in hair products and found that the main sudsing chemicals in most shampoos cause irritation, itchiness, and dryness. They are not safe if left on our SKIN! Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate , Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, and many other "sulfates" are harsh on sensitive skin and fragile hair. My aveda sap moss shampoo uses Sodium Coco Sulfate as naturally derived from coconut. I think that's just a play on wording because Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is also derived from coconut but it is still a harsh synthetic chemical. I realized that aveda sap moss shampoo was actually causing mild scalp irritation. I would get a mild itchy tingliness if I didn't wash every other day and my scalp was never thoroughly cleaned. I thought that was because I wasn't washing enough! Really that was a reflection on aveda sap moss as a product. So now I only wash once per week with baking soda and water (1 teaspoon in 2 ounces of water) combined in a spout tip "color applicator" bottle ($1.59) from Sally's Beauty Supply. Once a week, I use honey and jojoba oil (1:1 ratio in my palms) as a deep conditioning treatment and either rinse it out or leave it in for up to an hour. About every other day I use organic apple cider vinegar with water (1:2 or 1:3 ratio) in a spout-tip "color applicator" bottle. I love how my hair feels with the ACV rinse! It has a ph of about 5 which is just right for our hair and scalp. I use my home made herbal hair tea daily (see September's update). I named my hair tea Nkechi, an Igbo name for God's gift. I rarely use Carol's Daughter's herbal rinse anymore since I started making my own hair tea.

      I used apple cider vinegar as a hair rinse in the past and loved it, but never figured out what to use as the shampoo. Baking soda sounds perfect!

    • Baking soda instead of shampoo   by  24ghz     16 y     3,102
      I would like to know what are the scientific evidences that baking soda is a good "shampoo" or substitute of the comercial shampoos?

      In what way the baking soda works this miracle?

      In what conditions the baking soda is applied to the hair? Is it in already dissolved in water or any other substance that reacts with the sodium bicarbonate (a.k.a baking soda) or it's applied as powder directly to the head?

      Once in contact with water the sodium bicarbonate slowly turns into sodium bicarbonate, water and carbon dioxide (also known as CO2) but initially "boils" like hell releasing the CO2.
      Check out the chemical reaction 2NaHCO3 → Na2CO3 + H2O + CO2


      Now CO2 + H2O produces a weak acid. Would that acid be the answer ?

      Which one of these three components does the magic? Which one eliminates the natural "oil" produced on the scalp ?

      I'd appreciate some enlightment on this issue.

      When the first natural food store opened in my town nearly 3 decades ago, there was a shampoo in a white bottle with green silk screened print. It started with an "A", although I can't remember exactly what the name of it was.
      It smelled wonderful, but the cost was astronomical and it left a grease slick in my hair. I inquired about it with one of the sales people, who handed me a book....written by the maker of this product, in order to promote it.

      The entire book was about the dangers of Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, including unproven accusations and assumptions that he pushed in order to push his "good smelling", useless, expensive product, that did NOT contain any SLS.
      Since this ingredient was in so many products, and so many gullible customers were led to believe it was dangerous, the manufacturers had additional studies and tests done in 2004, that proved, once and for all, that SLS is non-carcinogenic.
      What they did find, is an older detergent called Ethenolomine Lauryl Sulphate that was contaminated with nitrosamines in some shampoos that also contained SLS.

      The book also pointed out that SLS is used as a water softener and foaming agent for stronger cleaners. To say that it's dangerous because it's used in fire-fighting, is like saying that glycerin is poison just because it's an ingredient used in anti-freeze. The MDS sheet on this product warns that it is an eye-irritant.....of course, any thing strong enough to clean your hair and scalp will probably irritate the eyes.

      If you do some research, you will find that this coconut-based ingredient has been the subject of misinformation, rumors, and deliberate untruths, for the sake of profits.
      I help take care of Four women in their nineties, who have all used commercial shampoos for decades, and every one of them had enough common sense to close their eyes as the shampoo began to drip down their foreheads.
      The best way to stop an unjust rumor, is to research the truth about it and be committed to no longer repeating and perpetuating it.
