This homemade shampoo is another very basic, very simple, and very effective homemade experiment. You can literally whip up a batch of homemade baking soda shampoo in one minute, it’s that easy, and fun too.
This Experiment take: 1-2 minutes
– Ingredients –
– Step One –
Measure out one cup of water. You can either poor it straight into whatever you going to be storing the shampoo in, or if you’re mixing up a big batch, you can you a large bowl.
– Step Two –
Add in your 1 tablespoon of baking soda. It’s important to measure it out because to much baking soda can result in dried out hair, while too little can be ineffective at getting you hair grime free.
Then just give it a good shake or a stir, and you’re all done. Easy as pie, well easier actually, I’m terrible at making pie!
– Optional Sweet Smells –
As an extra option
– Using The Finished Product –
The shampoo will be very thin when you are finished. It doesn’t lather either, but don’t worry, it’ll still work. Just keep adding shampoo to your hair until you can feel that its all been coated, it will feel slightly slippery when it is.
Everybody’s hair is a little different, so you might have to tweak the recipe a little bit to make it just right for you.
– Storing you new Homemade Shampoo –
I’ve opted for a large recycled beer bottle, with an olive oil topper.
You can use an old soap pump, or pick one up from amazon.
You can reuse an old shampoo bottle too. Me, I’m sticking with the beer bottle because it looks cool, and gets the job done!
– How’s It Work? –
It works great, honestly I’m amazed at how good this simple shampoo actually works. I’ve noticed that since I’ve begun using this shampoo my hair has noticeably had more volume. This homemade shampoo doesn’t leave my hair feeling stripped or dry. Awesomely though is that I can easily go two days without washing may hair, and it never feels oily and gross. Water and baking soda, who knew.
