I’m going shampoo free

In the summer, it seems I wash my hair much less because I’m swimming in the lake everyday and it doesn’t seem to get dirty.

Before jumping in the shower this morning, I started to think of ways to keep my hair clean, naturally and homemade.

For the last 2 years, I have been using all natural Jason products and I love them- toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, but I thought it would be amazing if I could stop spending my money on hair and body products. (I’ll share my new homemade facewash, body scrub and hydrating lotion soon!)

I read a few blogs and thought I’d give it a try!

Shampoo: 1/2 cup baking soda mixed with 1 cup hot water (I made it in the shower with a mason jar). It of course doesn’t lather, so if you are used to the bubbles with regular chemical shampoos, it may seem strange. Make sure to rinse it out well. Clean your scalp and all your hair.

Conditioner: I filled a large spray bottle with vinegar and water (half and half). I know some people use apple cider vinegar but one blog I read said that it made her hair really heavy, so I followed her suggestion and used white vinegar. I’ll try raw apple cider next time.

Once my hair air dried, I was shocked and beyond excited at how soft it was and couldn’t stop running my fingers through it. It’s also so shiny!

Apparently there may be a “greasy” transition phase so I’ll keep you posted on how that goes.

Anyone else up for the challenge? Comment below!

Cheers to living simply and naturally.
