I have been trying to figure out how remove hair build-up and residue naturally. My hair has really had a major build up of chemical products and was really heavy and I was unable to style it even after washing it. I asked my stylist and she gave me two great tips. I love that they are both frugal and best of all they REALLY work!
She told me to mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda into my shampoo and wash my hair as normal with the paste. She said I could also wet my hair and rub the baking soda in and then shampoo. I chose the first option and it worked great!
She also mentioned doing a vinegar rinse. I mixed up 1 TBSP of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup of cold water and after I did the baking soda mixture shampoo I used the apply cider as a rinse. I did not rinse my hair with water after I just left the apple cider on my hair and then towel dried and then blew dry my hair.
I was a little concerned my hair would smell like apple cider but after drying it there was no smell! In addition not only was the hair build-up and residue gone my hair was left so shiny! I am so happy with it!
I purchased a plastic condiment bottle after season and used that for my apple cider rinse. It actually holds 2 rinses so I just leave it in the shower. I do the baking soda/apple cider once a week and it is working great!
Have you ever tried either of these methods to remove hair build-up or residue?
