My daughters and I have been looking at alternatives to cleaning products, and personal care items.
Recently, one of my daughters came across a method of using baking soda and apple cider vinegar instead of shampoos.
Since a lot of us have issues with our hair, plus allergies and sensitivities to both chemical and natural ingredients, I thought I'd post this idea. (Not to mention- this is an inexpensive alternative!)
Here is a site to look at... the pic she has posted looks like white vinegar, but really- apple cider vinegar is recommended. There are other sites too- so feel free to do your own searching around. I like to do that myself- then I can come up with the 'best of' from the different sites.
Scroll down the page a bit on this site too- as the author adds some more comments after receiving feedback/ideas from others.
I've been doing this method for a couple weeks almost exclusively. It takes a bit of getting used to- but I like the results! It is a lot less expensive- and is so good for the scalp/hair!
Also- it your hair is dry- try organic coconut oil- massage in, or only put on ends... BUT, after this- you will probably need a regular shampoo to wash/rinse it out well- The conditioning from the coconut oil is amazing!
How are you doing today? Are you having one of those 'forgotten days'- where you feel like no one knows you are there? While you wash your hair- remember, Our Heavenly Father never forgets you! He knows you better than anyone- in fact:
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
And as you remember- thank Him for knowing you so intimately; and, do not fear- you are valuable to Him!
