However, the chemicals contained in the shampoo can sometimes irritate the most sensitive scalps, cause dandruff or simply limit the volume of fine hair.
Whether for aesthetic, ecological or economic reasons, here are some solutions you can adopt to free yourself from shampoo bottles in your bathroom.
Baking soda shampoo.
The principle is quite simple. Dilute one or two tablespoons of extra fine baking soda in a glass of warm water to obtain a more or less liquid paste, depending on the nature of your hair.
The greasier the hair, the more bicarbonate should be added. This white powder is a natural anti-dandruff agent that prevents the development of fungi.
For convenience, fill a bottle with the mixture.
Once in the shower, wet your hair, apply the baking soda shampoo to different parts of your head and massage gently.
Wait 1 to 3 minutes for the product to take effect and rinse well. Sometimes two rinses are needed to completely remove all gunshot residue.
Cider vinegar conditioner
Pour two tablespoons of cider vinegar into a small bottle and fill it with cold water.
If you have particularly dry hair, increase the dosage of vinegar. This second mixture revitalizes the hair.
The little extras
The essential oils are useful to perfume the vinegar conditioner, but also to fight against certain inconveniences.
Ask a parapharmacy for advice on finding the right essential oil for your hair.
- A few drops (10-15) of castor oil can also help stimulate hair growth.
- Half a squeezed lemon will have a detoxifying action on the scalp and will give your hair "beach" highlights.
Once you have found the right mix for you, be patient.
Stopping using conventional shampooing and switching to natural products takes time to adjust, during which time your hair may become more oily or dandruff may appear.
If the change seems too abrupt, you can space out the baking soda washes and use a regular shampoo in between.
Dry Hair Care
Oil baths, conditioners, masks ...
Dry hair needs nutrition. We favor coating treatments and active ingredients such as shea butter or argan oil to moisturize the fiber. Don't forget the tips, with a serum that will provide shine.
Do you have dandruff? Rub the scalp to clean the roots. You can buy a shampoo with exfoliating micropearls or make a homemade scrub by mixing powdered cane sugar with conditioner.
Apply on the scalp massaging and rinsing abundantly.
Oily Hair Care
Consequences of an overproduction of sebum or an unbalanced diet, oily hair needs a 100% purity routine to regain its lightness.
We massage the scalp without rubbing, rinse carefully, and try to air dry the hair as much as possible, to avoid overheating the scalp.
Don't forget to protect your colored hair from the sun as well to prevent your color from "changing" and ruining your vacation. Be especially careful with colored blond hair: it is often very fragile and needs to be protected from the sun with appropriate care so as not to risk the appearance of greenish highlights.
