DIY Clarifying Shampoo Recipe

If your hair is dull and flat, it could be from your shampoo, conditioner, and styling products.  All of these products can build up on your hair over time.   To keep your hair looking great, use a clarifying shampoo once a week to gently cleanse your hair without stripping away your natural oils.  After you use this DIY clarifying shampoo recipe, your hair will be shiny and beautiful.  Not only is this recipe great for your hair, but it also helps soothe and protect your scalp.  This is a two step process, but it is worth it for naturally clean hair.

DIY Clarifying Shampoo Recipe




1.  Heat water in microwave for 30 seconds until warm.  Add baking soda and stir well.
2.  When cool, combine baking soda and water mixture, liquid soap, and oil in a container.  Shake well to combine.
3.  Mix apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup distilled water in a spray bottle.
4.  Wash hair with soap mixture and let sit on your hair for 5 to 10 minutes.  Rinse well.
5.  Spray hair with vinegar spray and let sit for another 5 to 10 minutes.  Rinse with cool water.  

 Baking soda can be too harsh for daily use, so only use this once a week.  You can also make it with less baking soda or leave it out if you want to use this recipe daily.

For best results, prepare the shampoo and rinse separately.  It's not recommended that you mix castile soap and vinegar, but this recipe is okay because you rinse out the castile soap before using the vinegar.
