We love our tresses and want them to be healthy at any cost. It is a myth that shampoo makes your hair healthy and cleansed. In fact, shampoo has a tendency to strip off the scalp’s natural oils and make our scalp dry initially only to make it oilier later. This causes hair fall and other scalp and hair issues. Baking soda is an all-rounder and can also keep your scalp and hair clean and healthy. Below is how you can wash your hair with baking soda:
BENEFITS OF USING BAKING SODA FOR HAIR WASHING:
- Baking soda exfoliates the scalp really well clearing the pores and removing dead skin cells effectively.
- It does not strip off natural oils from the scalp thus maintain moisture and does not dry out your scalp and hair when used in adequate quantities.
- Baking soda reduces frizz and maintains natural hair shape.
