Washing every day is actually okay, especially if your hair is oily and you are active in high-pollution or humid climates. But, shampooing with foam in abundant shampoo is not the only way out to get shiny, healthy hair.
The chemical and alcohol content in shampoo can make your scalp itchy and dry, causing the scalp to produce more oil. This is why you wash your hair more often.
Interested in trying to wash your hair without shampoo? Even though it may take a long time for you to get used to the end result you can have, the benefits will also last long. Imagine your dreamy thick and healthy hair, without having to deal with chemical reactions in your body. Plus, your hair can stay clean longer. Save time, right?
How to do it, rinse your hands and take enough baking soda powder. Rub baking soda onto your scalp for about one minute. Then rinse thoroughly.
Another alternative, you can dilute baking soda with warm water and use the solution to wash your hair. Don't forget to rinse it clean.
Baking soda is alkaline, while the scalp and hair are acidic. Therefore, it is recommended to rinse it with an acid solution to restore the pH balance of the hair.
How often do you have to 'shampoo' with baking soda? For optimal results, you should give a distance between shampooing sessions every four days.
'Baking soda' is suitable for those of you who have fine, oily, straight or wavy hair. Baking soda may be too hard if used on dry and rough hair.
Apple vinegar is acidic, the right pair is used as an alternative conditioner after you 'shampoo' with baking soda.
Just mix one or two tablespoons of apple vinegar into one glass of water, or half a cup of vinegar and half a cup of water, according to your hair needs.
Apply vinegar solution along the hair and on the entire scalp, rub and let stand for a few minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
The lemon citrus acid can help get rid of dandruff.
If your hair is straight or prone to dandruff, use a solution of lemon juice (half a cup of lemon juice, half a cup of warm water) instead of shampoo. Rub all hair and scalp for 10 minutes, comb with fingers and then rinse thoroughly.
3 things that cannot be done when shampooing without shampoo
If you have made a determination to reduce the use of chemicals in your hair and scalp by replacing shampoo with other ingredients, there are a number of things you need to pay attention to so that this new routine works, and your hair becomes healthier .
1. Do not replace the routine of shampooing suddenly
If you are a person who is fond of shampooing every day, this new routine might surprise you.
To get your new shampoo routine, try shampooing later in the day. For example, wash your hair with regular shampoo tonight, then wash your hair with one of the alternative 'shampoo' mentioned above, two days later. Continue to reduce the frequency of your bottled shampoo so that you can finally be completely released from shampoo.
2. Don't expect instant results
During the transition from bottled shampoo to alternative eco-friendly products above, maybe you will experience a period where your hair will be very oily for several days (even weeks), but this won't last old.
When you don't shampoo, your hair will certainly produce more oil and make it look limp. But this is a natural reaction. Your hair will get used to it from time to time with your new routine, until finally the oil glands on the scalp can control oil production back to normal.
3. Do not focus on the hair shaft only
The purpose of shampooing is to clean the hair by pouring oil and dirt on each strand of hair. But if you choose not to shampoo with bottled shampoo, focus on the scalp treatment.
Healthy hair is a mirror of a healthy scalp. Give up all your efforts to wipe and clean the scalp to spread natural hair oil for healthy and even hair growth.
