A thrifty and effective way to remove product buildup from your hair. I tried it, so did DH, and we were so impressed I want to share the tip with you all. Wet your hair thoroughly in the shower, then massage about 1/2 cup (or more for longer hair) of plain old baking soda into your scalp and hair. Add a bit of shampoo till you can get a lather and shampoo. Rinse well and shampoo again without the soda, then condition, dry and style as usual. Results are softer, silkier hair with more shine! I plan to do this monthly from now on! Let me know if any of you try it out.
