DIY Baking Soda Shampoo & Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner – 100% Green & Effective!

Baking Soda Shampoo and Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner

My curls high on baking soda shampoo and apple cider vinegar conditioner!

I can only imagine how much money I’ve spent in my lifetime experimenting with all different types of shampoos, conditioners, mousses, and hair gels to tame my unruly curls (see my other post on how I care for my curly hair). Since switching to baking soda shampoo and apple cider vinegar conditioner a year ago, I haven’t tried another product and haven’t even wanted to! If you think this sounds like a gimmick, I can’t blame ya, but I promise it’s not. Just start browsing the comments on this post and you’ll see one success story after another.

I’ve tried Nexxus, Frizz-Eaze, Kérastase, DevaCurl, Matrix Biologe, Redken, and Bed Head to name a few. I’m 30 years old now, and until a year ago, I still hadn’t found the perfect products to keep my hair soft, manageable, moisturized and most importantly, tamed. After using no-poo (no sodium laureth sulfate) shampoo and conditioner from DevaCurl for a couple of years and only washing my hair every 3-4 days, it was only fitting that I take the full plunge and make my own Baking Soda shampoo!

So ewww, that’s totally gross! Wash your hair every 3 to 4 days and not use real shampoo? Well, at first it is gross because your hair has to go through a 2-4 week transition period (mine was about 2 1/2 weeks) as it adjusts how much oil it produces.

See, regular shampoo has harsh sulfates in it, which are synthetic detergents. These sulfates clean the hair a little too well and end up stripping it of its natural oils, which causes your scalp to produce more oil than is actually needed. Baking Soda doesn’t strip your hair of its natural oils, but simply removes dirt from your hair.

I was determined to try it and stick it out – especially because it’s so incredibly cheap, gentle on my hair and 100% green! My hair did continue producing excess oil for about two weeks, even after having used a poo free shampoo for several years prior! I was very surprised by this. After that period, however, my hair felt softer than ever and started to actually lay flat! This works for all types of hair, not just curly. In fact, most bloggers who’ve written about it have straight hair.

UPDATE – If you’re not sure if you are ready to make the switch but still want to use more natural cleaners for your hair, check out my No-Poo Alternatives to Baking Soda post. I use an aloe vera and glycerine shampoo and talk about it there.

Testimonial – Removes Cradle Cap

One of my readers, Deanna, has been using the diluted baking soda on her five month old baby and says that her baby’s skin is much softer and it is helping to remove her cradle cap. Wow! It’s really not necessary to spend ten times the money on natural baby soaps when you can make baking soda shampoo and soap for pennies!

So, let’s get started!

Ingredients for Baking Soda Shampoo

All you need to make your own shampoo! Baking Soda and water – doesn’t get any cheaper or easier than that, folks!

Baking Soda Shampoo

  • Filtered Water
  • An empty container – I use an old shampoo bottle
  • Baking Soda (where to buy)
  • Measuring Cup
  • Tablespoon
  • 1 Funnel

Approx. Ratio for the Recipe: 1 tablespoon baking soda to 1 cup water OR make a paste with baking soda and a small amount of water and store in an old lotion tub. Just rinse thoroughly if you make a paste. The ratio for this recipe is flexible – there’s really no right or wrong way to do it. Add more baking soda if your hair is thick and long or oily, and less if it’s short and thin or dry. I use a little bit more, because my hair is so thick and long. So, for a 32 ounce container, I use 5 tablespoons of Baking Soda and 4 cups of cool water. I use the funnel to get the water and baking soda into the container. I’ve used warm water before (so I could use the shampoo right away and it wouldn’t be cold), but warm to hot water causes the baking soda to break down and clump, rendering it ineffective.

It’s so easy! Takes me about 5 minutes to complete it.

I take the bottle, flip my head upside down, and squirt the shampoo onto my scalp (the mixture is usually colder than room temperature, so it’s COLD to just pour on the scalp, which I why I flip my head over!).

Then, I take my fingers and rub my scalp in a circular motion, adding more shampoo if it feels like I need it, and rinse very thoroughly.


  • It’s very important to rinse thoroughly or your hair will feel grainy and dry.
  • Make the recipe with cool to lukewarm water, but not warm or hot. Warm/hot water reacts with the baking soda and causes it to clump up.
Ingredients for Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner

Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner

  • Empty container (I use an empty vinegar bottle)
  • Measuring cup
  • Funnel
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (where to buy)
  • Water (see tips below for scented, herb-infused water in the “Worried About the Smell?” section

Ratio for the conditioner is one tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar to one cup of filtered water. My hair is so dry, thick and long that I use a lot more and it works wonders for my hair – about 1 cup ACV with 1 cup water.

I shied away from using this as a conditioner for a long time because as I used it in the shower, my hair did not feel soft and silky like it did with commercial conditioners, so I thought it wasn’t working. Then, I bit the bullet and decided to try it without any commercial conditioner just to see what would happen. The result? After my hair dried (and I ignored that it didn’t feel soft while wet), it was softer and smoother than when I had used commercial conditioner! I was amazed and now I’m HOOKED.

Worried About the Smell?

Don’t be – I promise you will not smell like a walking pickle jar! If I did, believe me, I wouldn’t be using this. I may be into green living, but I do have pride (smile). Once your hair dries, the vinegar smell disappears. In fact, it starts to dissipate right after rinsing and I don’t notice a smell at all. However, I have been doing this method for a long time, so I am used to it.

If you are just starting this method and just can’t stand the smell of it in the shower or while it’s drying, here are several ideas:

  • You can add essential oils like lavender, rosemary, sage, or citrus to freshen it up. However, if you get the raw ACV like I do, the essential oils will make the raw material (aka “the mother”) clump up. (where to buy high quality essential oils)
  • You could also make your own scented water to mix with it by steeping some herbs in hot water (like making herbal tea) in a pot on the stove, strain the herbs and use that water to mix with the ACV.
  • A reader wrote that she uses just a little bit of rose water (where to buy) and orange blossom water (where to buy) and a few drops of her favorite essential to make it smell heavenly.

Tips for Application:

  • When starting this method for the first time, be careful to pour the ACV on just the ends of your hair so it doesn’t get on your scalp. It makes my scalp feel oily.
  • However, if you are dealing with psoriasis, dandruff or dry skin on your scalp, ACV does WONDERS for healing dry and damaged skin and I recommend applying it to your scalp until your skin heals. I have had a few spots of dandruff in the past and the ACV has cleaned it up after one application!

Trying this Method and Still Dealing with Frizziness?

I’ve gotten quite a few comments from curly girls who are dealing with frizziness while trying this method. I highly recommend reading my other post on my Curly Hair Regimen and follow all the steps when it comes to washing your hair and applying a product afterwards – each step counts. If you find it is drying your hair out, I have had the same issues (after using it for a year and a half, but many have been happy with it long-term). I wrote another post to address this issue – No-Poo Alternatives to Baking Soda. To be clear, I do still have to use a hair cream or mousse with this method or my hair would look terrible and frizzy. I know that may sound strange, but that’s just how coarse and curly my hair is. Before this method, my hair was frizzy, unruly and really dry even with hair products on it. Now, my hair feels soft and lays much more nicely and isn’t nearly as dry. Not only that, I’m saving tons of money as gentle shampoos and good conditioners are very expensive.

Another idea is to use coconut oil as a pre-conditioner. I get my coconut oil from Tropical Traditions and love it! Apply it BEFORE washing your hair, preferably an hour before and let it sit. Then, wash and rinse like normal. Do this on an as-needed basis until you hair feels like you want it to! I have been doing this since having my third baby as the hormonal changes made my hair very dry. The coconut oil has worked wonders to moisturize it!

  1. For all you curly haired girls out there there’s a new product out there just for you. It’s called deva curl look it up on . They also have a way you can find salons around you that around re trained to cut curly hair. You don’t have to deal frizz or be scared to cut your hair anymore.

  2. Do I have to rinse after using the vinegar in my hair? Or just leave it in to dry? If the latter, how do I avoid that dripping water getting in my eyes and burning?

  3. If I want to use my YL oils (I’m thinking Lavender and Peppermint), how many drops of each in the ACV rinse do you think?

  4. I use organix shampoo, which I thought was a good idea until reading your post. I am going to try this ASAP, I wash my hair every three days. I have wavy hair and when I straighten it it looks frizzy, I am hoping this helps. 🙂 thank you so much.

  5. BTW, do you normally break up the cycle and wash every once in a while with something else?

  6. Will either of these cause color to fade in color treated hair?



  7. Hi! I’m very excited to try this and am going to make a bottle of each for my sister’s Christmas present because she has been having a lot of trouble with hair growth over the years (only 21 years old) 🙁
    I do have 1-2 questions though– Do you make enough to fill a whole empty bottle? If so, how long does it stay good/keep for? In other words, does it spoil and become non-usable after a week or so?

    Thanks again!

  8. Scary! I just made my first ‘batch’ of both the ‘no poo’ shampoo and the vinegar rinse…Wish me luck! I’m SO excited to see if this helps to manage my mane 🙂

  9. SOO happy I found this! Been using Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Shampoo/Conditioner and I’m running low, least on the Shampoo. We don’t have a store near me and I usually wait until i visit family states away to grab a bunch. Since that won’t be happening soon, I was cruising for a toothpaste suggestion actually but came across this wonderful post! I’ve been using your borax free laundry detergent for 2 years now with my HE washer and LOVE IT! THANKS SO MUCH! So needless to say I can’t wait to try this out (I also only wash my hear every 3-4 days and completely agree with your points). When I’m out of conditioner I plan to try the ACV too! I already use coconut oil as a deep conditioner when needed (and completely switched from “natural” lotion to only coconut oil years ago and my skin loves it!) but i’m curious about the ACV conditioner. I use it as a facial toner every day and it’s worked wonders on my face to keep acne and breakouts at bay, esp during the time of the month.
    A quick question, kind of and and kind of not related to the shampoo: you said the warm water renders the baking soda ineffective, but with the laundry detergent, you suggest just under boiling water to mix, or maybe i read that somewhere wrong?
    Thanks for reading my novel! LOVE YOUR BLOG!!

  10. I’m on day 5 of NO poo and so far the results are amazing! My hair is SO much shinier and I can even run my fingers through the bottom layers (this has NEVER been done with my birds nest)! Thank you for posting!!!!

  11. A friend of mine just sent me this link: have you looked into this or found the same to be true for your hair?

    • I did find that after a year and a half, but hair started to get very dry, but it did NOT destroy my hair. I was just talking 2 other girls the other day who’ve been using baking soda for 4 years and are still loving it, so I don’t like these kinds of posts that make broad statements. It works really great for some, and doesn’t work for others, just like anything! So, find what works for YOU and stick with it. 🙂

  12. So I just made the Baking Soda Shampoo. Is it supposed to be liquid/watery? Or thick like normal shampoo?

  13. Nothing has worked better for me than this! I was a bit skeptical at first but after the first use I can say that I won’t be using shampoo any longer! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I could no longer stand my hair. This saved me from cutting it.

  14. Girl you have explained everything so beautifully in detail. I normally use baking soda but no t acv because of its weird smell but through this post you convinced me so much that ican’t wait to try in my next shower. Thanx a ton forth this wonderful piece.

  15. Can u use white vinegar?

  16. Jordan Loney says:

    I am going to start this within the next couple days, but I’m hoping to get my haird colored within the next couple weeks. Will this strip my color? And my hair is extremely oily anyways so is dry shampoo okay on the days I don’t wash it?

  17. Thanks for the helpful post! My one concern is: how does his method work to rinse/wash out products like hairspray? I sometimes style my hair with generous amounts of hairspray and I haven’t really found any testimonials that say it will work to take out product. Does anyone know??

    Also, do you know how this method work if you have hard water?


  18. Hello my only question is how often would you wash your hair with this ? Starting with when you first try it out, then once your past the detoxing stage. Can you do it daily (I do right now but use regular shampoo and conditioner) or what would you recommend ?Thank you can’t wait to try it out (:

  19. i was thrilled to find your ever so helpful site!!!! After reading all about the no poo shampoo I was so excited to give this a try bc I have build up. I literally ran to the store to purchase what was needed. After using tonight my only question and comment is maybe I did not scrub my scalp enough bc it still feels like I have build up. Or does it take a few times? I defiantly rinsed throughly. I do not use a lot of products like hair spray most days it’s pony tails for this stay at home mom so I’m really not sure why I have so much build up. Never the less will it get better the next time? In your experience? Thanks so much for all the helpful info!!!!!!

  20. I was just curious if the conditioner helps with Tangles. I have curly hair and it’s long and dry, and after one day of wearing down with product, I get pretty bad tangles that I spend so much time combing out in the shower every other day or so… will the vinegar be as helpful as using a moisturizing conditioner for this?

  21. Hi! Please help! I tried a castile / water combo for shampoo yesterday and today and also did the apple cider/water mix. Yesterday it took me over 5 minutes to brush out my strait chest length hair… today (not kidding) was over 20 minutes!!! I don’t have time for that with toddler.. I was close to chopping my hair off. I really want to find a natural solution, can you give me any tips? I also exercise daily and sweat a bunch so I need to wash more often. Thanks!

  22. I have curly hair too and it is very difficult to find a good shampoo and conditioner. I will try your method with the baking soda and the vinegar. Thanks a lot!

  23. Hi girls! I just wanted to share with you that I was losing hair (excessive), I visited so many dermatologists and they all said it was due to stress, which was true but I was so scared and nothing worked for my. Months later my mother in law told me to prepare a magic blend….. Apple cider vinager and a Rosemary infusion. Now I have new hair growing and growing…. Hope this helps. It has nothing to do with this blog but I wanted to share this anyway, just for those who thought this vinager thing is crazy….. It’s just great

  24. Thanks so much for the post, I’ve been looking into trying this for a while now. I was wondering how much of your mixture do you use in the shower each time? Just a handful or a full cup?

    • I put mine in a squirt bottle and squirt it all over my scalp, so I’m honestly not sure! It’s so liquidy so I’ve found it doesn’t help to squirt it in my hand first.

  25. Hi there, thanks for the post! Just a quick question – how do you store the apple cider vinegar mix? I’ve tried using regular vinegar and water and putting it in a plastic spray bottle, but after a few weeks these dark patches that look like mould start appearing in the liquid. Im assuming its the plastic being leached off.

    Thanks for your help! 🙂

    • Hi Andrei! I also store mine in a plastic bottle but have never ever had mold form. The raw apple cider vinegar does have pieces from real apples in it, so those can look dark. If I were you, I think I’d try storing it under the sink in a cabinet. Perhaps your house is warmer than mine or the solution is being exposed to sunlight? Otherwise, you can store it in a glass container, even a mason jar and see if that helps.

  26. Hi
    I loved ur post, gonna try it very soon. A quick question….
    my hair r fine thin and short also I have excessive hair fall. Will this baking soda shampoo n vinegar conditioner goen to help me. And how often should I wash my hair. With regular shampoo I wash it in every 2 to 3 days?

  27. jazzi pink says:

    my hair are curly ,wavy frizzy ,dry ,dull hair and normal medium length
    what should be the ratio of the products that you have mentioned? (like baking soda ,water) etc
    and can we just make the shampoo and place it in bathroom and use it when ever we have to wash our hair or it has to be made fresh every time?

    • You can make a big batch, no need to mix it up each time. I would use the same ratio that I have here in the post -1 tbsp. baking soda to 1 cup water. That’s what I did and my hair type sounds very similar to your’s! Also, check out my other no-poo recipes that are without baking soda –

  28. Hi Sarah!
    Thanks so much for this post! Can’t wait to try this!
    Quick question, though. I’m used to having my shampoo scented, but my hair gets greasy really easily. Is there a way to scent the shampoo that won’t make my hair more oily? Thanks again!

    Hi Sarah,

    you’re website is amazing! I have just stumbled upon it and I’m SO GLAD I did! I had a question about the no-poo method, more so for my mom, she is still dying her hair with herbatint and was wondering how this would affect the process for her? She dyes her hair every two months or so. Thank you for all great information, recipes, and time. 🙂

    • I used to use Herbatint! And I had no problems with it stripping the dye. Remember, there is no detergent in this recipe, so it will not strip hair color. Glad you like the blog, thank you!!

  30. everyone seems to have curly hair here and you said that the baking soda shampoo works well to straighten hair while my hair are already straight and I want them to be more voluminous and a bit curly so, I know you don’t have straight hair, but do you know if i could find a homemade shampoo for it?

  31. clarise murphy says:

    I was just wondering after using the ac conditioner do you blow dry your hair?

  32. Does this vinegar and soda work on gray hair? If I don’t use a purple shampoo my hair turns a yucky yellow. Sometimes the purple shampoo turns it purple if I use it to much! Thank you for any words of wisdom.

  33. I have been using this for about two weeks now, and my hair is killing me! knot wise. i love everything else about this, but how can i solve the problem of needing to take out roughly 20-30 minutes of time to brush out all my hair? my hair is extremely thick, wavy, and nearly to the center of my back. massive knots have always been an issue, but i want something natural to help where im trying to stay away from commercial conditioners.

    • I think the apple cider vinegar is not moisturizing enough for you, or it’s the baking soda. Baking soda can be very drying – I know use Young Living’s “no poo” shampoo. It doesn’t have any detergents in it and it works well on my hair. Then, I still use the Apple Cider Vinegar as a conditioner. To see other homemade no poo shampoos, go to this post on my blog!

  34. Hi there! This is very interesting to me. I am curious to know if it is possible to combine the baking soda no-poo with the ACV conditioner or some other proportion of those two with purified water? I like to be “wash -n- go” with the least number of pampering steps possible.

    • I don’t think so – they are both so different. But who knows? Might as well try it! It’s not going to cost you hardly anything to try it once or twice and see how your hair does.

  35. How long should i leave the ACV conditioner on my hair? Or should I rinse it straight away after i put it on my hair?

    • Hi there! There’s not really a rule with that – I leave it on a few minutes, and I notice my hair softens more and the tangles come out easily that way.

      • Hi Sara, I have 2 questions, i’m using 16 ounce bottles that I picked up from Sally’s beauty I’m wondering just to make sure you doing this right, in one bottle I put about 2 1/2 tablespoons of baking soda with 2 cups of water, so half the size of your bottle and for the ACV I used another 16 ounce bottle and did 1 cup of water and 1 cup of ACV in that! Dose that sound right? Also do you just put the ACV on your ends or all over your hair? I have medium length curly hair like you. Thanks

  36. I’ve been ONLY using baking soda & ACV for 2 yrs now & my hair is GREAT!! I naturally have drier hair so I can even get away with once a week “washings.” I’m 35, my hair is fine, average thickness, dark brown & graying 🙁 (so it’s color treated too ) my hair is also many different textures: curly, wavy, straight, “poofy” 🙂 I believe that my hair is the best it could ever be! & healthiest! Keeping things simple & as natural as possible helps our bodies ( & hair ) do what it was meant to do & be what it was meant to be! Too many chemicals can destroy the natural balance that is supposed to be. My hair took awhile to transition. It seemed to be very frizzy for a long time!!! But I stuck with it & I’m SO glad I did. Once it’s dry there is ABSOLUTELY no ACV smell at all!! My hair just smells fresh & wonderful!! It does take some getting used to b/c it will NOT feel smooth & silky after conditioning. But that feeling isn’t what’s best for your hair. Once it’s dry it feels great 🙂

  37. is it possible baking soda can permanent damage hair. It completely fried my hair and it has been thinning for 8 months. No matter how many times I cut my hair it keeps getting worse :(.

    • Baking soda shampoo does not work for everyone, it’s true. Some have had great success with it and others haven’t, so if you’re not, I’d definitely stop using it and try something like castile soap.

  38. Why do people get such silky & shiny hair using ACV? My hair is healthy, but always look dull, & I even use diluted Dr. Bronners shampoo with a bit of baking soda. I also only wash my hair 2-3x/week. Once, I used my sister’s commercial conditioner & my hair looked awesome with its silkiness and shine. I don’t understand. I don’t want to use products full of chemicals, but I cannot get the same results everyone else is getting. Any suggestion?

    • You may not need to use the baking soda every time – it can dry the hair out for some people. So, I’d try using your Dr. Bronner’s shampoo without the baking soda and see what kinds of results you get. Is your hair naturally dry, Tavia?

      • Hi Sara,

        Thanks for responding. My hair is not naturally dry, it can appear oily within a week of not cleaning. If it helps you, I soak both hair follicles & strands in my oil (argan, castor, vitamin E) the night before. The next day, I shampoo with diluted Dr. Bronner’s shampoo and a diluted ACV with the mother. My new batch of shampoo doesn’t even have baking soda mixed in anymore.

        On a related topic, I’m sure you’ve heard of the rave on coconut oil, shea butter, argan oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, etc. on the health of your skin. Countless reviews even swear by it, and so I gathered all these ingredients as organic, unrefined, and cold-pressed as I can get. I tried them one at a time, then combined. My own homemade lotion can leave my skin FEELING somewhat smooth but still APPEARS wrinkly and requires frequent application. I find that the freebies full-of-chemicals Lancome stuff does a better job at keeping my skin smooth than all these natural ingredients combined. Why is my body, both hair and skin, responds better to commercial products than to natural organic stuff? I’m really trying to go green.


        • Hi Tavia! Well, when we switch over from commercial products to natural, our skin does go through a transition phase where it has to stop producing the excess sebum that it was producing to make up for the sebum that was being stripped with synthetic detergents. So, it might look worse before it looks better for a week or so. For your skin, I highly recommend the oil cleansing method – have you tried that? Here’s my post on it.

          • Hi Sara,

            Sorry for the late response. Yes I am reading your post now. I already have castor oil and olive oil. I tried jojoba once, I guess i’ll order that again. I heard that using Jamaican Black Castor Oil is best.

  39. Sara,

    I have been doing the baking soda and ACV hair wash for about 4 years now. Prior to that I would wash with a sulfate free shampoo every 3-4 days, with increased dilution of the shampoo. Now I wash with both every Saturday, and rinse mid-week with just the ACV. I am less precise in my measurements, and I do use warm water with both. At first I was also using coconut oil as a leave in conditioner, not so much now, just kinda wipe the body lotion onto the hair (cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil mixture of my own concoction) My hair is thick, healthy, mid-back, course and fairly dry. I get compliments all the time about my hair, how beautiful it is, and they are all amazed at how long it has been since the use of traditional shampoo. I am not saying this to brag, but more to tell others that you wont end up looking like a freak. I used Dr Bonners and did not like the result, very rough, and dry but I will have to try diluting it better. It does make a wonderful emergency toothpaste though.

    Thanks for your posts.


  40. I have been using this shampoo and rinse for a week. I don’t understand erstand what I’m doing wrong. My hair is weighed down and greasy feeling from the very first try to now. I have medium long curly hair. I use 1/2 of baking soda mixture and rub in and let stand for 1 minute before rinsing thoroughly. I follow with 1/2 cup acv, tubing it throughout my hair, and again rinsing thoroughly. I’ve let my hair dry naturally and today I blow dried it. It always looks greasy and stringy and is very heavy. Suggestions please.

    • Hi Marion! You might want to transition into it – some days use a sulfate-free shampoo, other days use baking soda. Or you can see my other natural shampoo post to find something else that might work better for you. Baking soda doesn’t work for everyone.

  41. *1/2 cup*….*rubbing*…😄 auto correct is for the birds.

  42. Ashley Marie says:

    How long can I store the shampoo and conditioner in their bottles? Do they go bad after a while? I’d like to make big batches of each as there are four of us. (Sorry if that’s a silly question. I’m new to all things natural! Lol) TIA 😊 God Bless

  43. I’ve had this post bookmarked for over a year, working up the nerve to try it out. The ACV had me really iffy because of the smell, but I finally took the plunge and mixed up a batch of shampoo and conditioner tonight. My scalp feels AMAZING! I got a bit too much of the baking soda on my ends and didn’t quite get it rinsed well enough, so they’re a bit crunchy at the moment. But seriously, I don’t even care because my scalp feels so good right now.

  44. Mayra Resendez says:

    I’m so ready to try this, but I have a few questions, I also have curly hair, not long, shoulder length. Is it okay to wash/condition your hair everyday with this? And second question, I heard that this will make my hair grow, is that true?

    • Each person seems to have different results, so it’s very hard to say if it’ll make your hair grow or now. I do know that Cedarwood essential oil helps hair to grow, though! At first, you will probably have to wash and condition everyday as your hair gets used to producing less oil (it goes into overdrive oil production when using regular shampoos that contain SLS). Then, after that, I would wash when needed, which is different for each person. I am able to go 3 days or so in between washings and my scalp doesn’t really even get oily!

  45. MARIANGELES says:

    Hi Sarah,
    Your page is great, your posts, advice, etc. And your hair is lovely!
    Now, I have a suggestion- I would stay away from recommending baking soda for the hair, it has done a lot of damage to the majority of people who try it. Only a minority don’t get damaged or thinning hair. There’s a scientific explanation for that, people will have to do the research.
    Everything else you recommend is great, and then again depending on hair and skin types.
    Keep up the good work.
    Many blessings to you & your family.

  46. What if I only want to use this as a one time thing? How will that affect my hair and will it work?

    • It’s hard to say as it affects everyone differently, but one time won’t make much of a difference, I don’t think! The way I see it, might as well try! It’s cheap, easy and won’t hurt anything ;).

  47. greetings,
    thankyou for the recipe, i am going to try this INN SHA ALLAAH (ALLAAH WILLING). i have two concerns regarding storing it, whats best to use as container material, glass or plastic? And second concern is about storage at what temperature is best? Is it better to refrigerate?
    May ALLAAH, your Creator and mine, Guide you to Islaam-aameen

  48. Simply want to say your article is as amazing. The
