Easy Steps for Making a Clarifying Shampoo at Home
The moment your hair feels like it is bogged down by dirt or styling products, or just loses its soft glow, it is probably time for you to cleanse it using a good clarifying shampoo. A clarifier cleans off all the residues left by hair products such as shampoos, conditioners, hair food, and dirt. Clarification will leave your hair feeling soft with a rejuvenated movement and color. Not all store-bought clarifying shampoos are expensive, but some can be quite harsh to your hair, depriving it of all the moisture it has. It is for this reason that I will be sharing a simple recipe for a homemade clarifying shampoo. This shampoo guarantees to leave your hair moisturized, soft and supple, without affecting your hair color.
2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ACV (apple cider vinegar)
Scoop baking soda into a cup and add water. Warm water is recommended as this aids in the dissolving of baking soda. Note that this mixture will not lather, hence the addition of ACV is recommended for a foamy wash. Gently stir the mixture and ensure the baking soda has completely dissolved. The mixture is now ready for use.
Expert advice: Pour the shampoo on wet hair over the scalp and work through the tresses for at least 3 minutes. Leave it to sit in your hair for 15 minutes before rinsing it off. Your hair should now feel silky, clean and have more volume. This would be an awesome cleanser especially if you have hair that’s naturally kinky.
