Easy Baking Soda Shampoo

 Why Clarify you hair once a month?

As you may know from my article why I stopped relaxing my hair. My hair is 100% natural and I like to know all the ingredients that I put in my hair. In addition, I will love to share my hair regimen in another article. Today, I want to talk about the importance of clarifying your hair in a monthly basis with an easy baking soda shampoo. A clarifying shampoo allows you to clean your hair and your scalp in depth. Plus, it is a type of shampoo that should be used occasionally and not on a daily basis. Indeed, if you use this type of shampoo repeatedly, you will have dry and brittle hair. A clarifying shampoo once a month is more than enough if you tend to use gentle shampoos (co-wash, washing powder, etc.), or once every 2 to 3 months if you use regular shampoos.

What does hair detoxification provide?

The benefits of a scalp detox are quite significant. It stimulates the hair follicles to promote hair growth and helps rid the scalp of acne, dandruff and scabs. About a week later, you should already notice a difference in the texture of your hair.  Therefore, you will have:

  • a healthy scalp, no more dandruff and itching,
  • clean hair, free of impurities, ready to receive effective care,
  • beautiful, shiny and silky hair,
  • a smoothing and sheathing effect
