Safe shampoo

Dr. Mercola ran an expose of shampoo ingredients and I thought I’d share my simple solution.  I’ve been using this system for over a year and it has served me well.  My hair is healthy and happy and shiny and clean.

For many years I’d used “organic” shampoo and all that time, my scalp had been irritated and itchy. It no longer is. This is what I do…

I have two plastic bottles with nozzles – one is a pint, the other is a quart.  (They were empty Bragg’s Aminos bottles.)

I mix the ingredients for shampoo in the smaller and the rinse in the larger.  I tried combining the ingredients once but that didn’t work very well.  You need to clean with the baking soda, then rinse with the vinegar to bring the pH back to normal scalp and hair pH.  The vinegar makes the hair very easy to comb after… smooth.

Shampoo
1 teaspoon Arm & Hammer baking soda
1 cup of water

Rinse
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 quart water

Gently massage the baking soda mixture through your hair and scalp for a minute or two.  Rinse well.

Then pour the vinegar mixture through the hair, making sure all the hair is exposed to it. Rinse well.

You can see my hair in videos on YouTube… here and here and here.  I’ve never been able to grow my hair long before… I think it has something to do with all the chemicals in even organic commercial shampoos.  Depending on hairstyles, some people just use warm water and no shampoo at all.
