Shampoo free..whhhaaaatttt???

So I just came across a question on Chemical Free Skinny today about going shampoo free. First I was like um gross. then I read the question and what they had to say. Apparently you can use baking soda to cleanse hair and use apple cider vinegar as a sort of conditioner! (lemon works as well because it too is acidic)

Who knew?!

So followed a link in the comments which brought me to here.

It seems like a pretty cool idea! I also followed some of the links that Simple Mom put at the bottom of her post and found a cool one that tells you how to do an herbal rinse for your hair!

here it is

So you basically make a tea from an herb that is good for you hair (rosemary and sage, chamomile, rose, mint etc...) strain it add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and pour it over your hair. Let it sit for a good few minute then rinse it out! I think I'll have to try this!

I'm intrigued about this going shampoo free and using baking soda and apple cider vinegar, but I'll have to think about it and do some more research on it. I want to make sure it won't dry my hair too much. But I suppose too I'll just have to try it sometime. I'll let you know what else I find out!

Happy Wednesday!
