No shampoo routine

I've gotten a lot of e-mail asking for my "no shampoo" routine so here it is! Sorry it's taken so long to get up here! I've almost hit my 30 day trial and I'm still hooked. For those we were wanting to try this but were not sure about it....I'd say do it! I've really liked it so far and my hair is loving me for it. 

 Buy your baking soda and apple cider vinegar. I've heard some people using organic apple cider vinegar, but eh...I'm cheap so Kroger it is. 

I bought two water bottles to put each solution in. That way I made sure all of my hair was getting most of it instead of just pouring it on my head and most of it going down the drain. 
  • Baking soda solution - 1 cup of water to 1 TBS of baking soda. Make sure the baking soda has completely dissolved. Also the solution should feel slippery in your hands. If it isn't, add another TBS of baking soda.
  • Apple cider vinegar solution - 1 cup of water to 2 TBS of apple cider vinegar. Shake to combine.
Next hop in the shower and wet your hair. Take your baking soda solution and spray it on your hair, mostly focusing on the roots. Give your scalp a good scrub, then rinse. 

Then take your apple cider vinegar solution, spray on the length of your hair (not your roots), and focus on the ends of your hair. I pull mine up with a clip and let it sit while I wash my face, body, etc. Then rinse. I promise your hair will not smell like vinegar as long as you do a good job rinsing it out. It smells gross when placing it but my hair has never smelt like vinegar. If you really miss that yummy shampoo smell, you can place some essential oils in your hair brush if you want. 

That's it! It's super easy and seriously....just do it! If you guys have any other questions, feel free to comment or shoot me an e-mail!

Do you do this every day or every other day? I have gone to washing every other day with regular shampoo, but I would love to be able to go longer.

I actually try to go as long as I can between washings. Right now I am at washing my hair every 5-6 days but it took me a little bit to get there. Your hair takes a little bit to get used to it so the longer you continue to do it, the less frequent you have to wash! I would highly suggest getting some dry shampoo if you haven't already.

Do you spray the entire cup of each, each time? I just started tonight and with above shoulder length hair it seemed excessive but I wasnt sure so I did it
