Run out of Shampoo?

No worries.  Here's a very simple, cheap alternative to shampoo made from something everyone probably has in their home and works like a charm.

1 Tbsp Baking Soda
1 cup warm water

dissolve baking soda in water

Pour on the roots of your hair and scrub with your finger tips for a few seconds.

Do not use more baking soda, if you have a lot of hair, like me, you can just up the water, not the baking soda.

rinse well.

use a tiny bit of conditioner.

My hair looks awesome today!  No shampoo!  Squeaky clean.  amazing.

I should also shout out the awesome conditioner purchased here: Maplecreeksoap


  1. Your hair looks lovely! & thanks for the tip, I have wanted to try a wash without shampoo for awhile now.

  2. looks great! I also read that you can rinse with some apple cider vinegar diluted in warm water.... so great to do something that looks good and doesn't cost anything!

  3. Yah I've heard apple cinder vinegar works great as a rinse/conditioner too. Might have to try this baking soda idea

  4. Wow, that is so awesome. I love minimal tips like that.

    I do use apple cider vinegar too.
