Women love their hair. They have great connection to it, and that is why they often want to have as long and thick hair as possible. However, this sometimes turns out to be not an easy task. It is true that there are probably a lot of hair products including shampoos, conditioners and sprays, which are specifically designed to stop the hair loss and to increase the growth and thickness of the hair. It is true that a lot of them do not have the effect they promoted.
That is why you should find another method to help you bring back the thickness of your hair. And that is where our suggestion comes in. You should use a baking soda shampoo if you want to protect your hair from hair loss. And here is what you have to do.
Which are baking soda’s powers?
Baking soda turns out to be quite effective when it comes to our beauty secrets. You can also use it to clean your face and to remove dark circles under the eyes. You can also apply baking soda on your armpits and this way you will stop any unpleasant smell that could come from the sweating. The best part is that baking soda is quite cheap and you do not have to spend a lot of money on something that it may even not work. And even if baking soda has so many superpowers, today we are going to concentrate on only one of them, which is how you can use it to make your hair shiny, clean and thicker than it is.
Why does your hair fall?
Before moving on to the recipe that will help you bring back the thickness and shininess of your hair, we are going to talk first about the reasons why you are losing some of your hair. The fall is one of the seasons that is famous for having an effect over our bodies. If in the winter we should take care of our skin more because the cold weather dries it, and in the summer we should wear sun creams, because the sun ages our skin, in the fall, we should take care of our hair more because the fall is the season which is famous for having the highest percentage of hair loss.
The changes in the weather (from hot to cold) have a bit of a negative effect on our hair. You have probably noticed it when you were taking a shower and after you have applied the conditioner, more hair fell down than in the summer. Or when you we brushing your hair. But if the hair loss is extreme, you should immediately go to see a doctor, because baking soda cannot help if the problem is more serious.
How to use baking soda to reduce hair loss?
So, now it is time to find out how to make baking soda shampoo yourselves. You will only need a package of backing soda and some water. The quantity depends on the length of your hair. If your hair is longer, for example, you are going to need more of the product. Here are the exact amount:
For medium length hair you will need: 1 part of baking soda and 3 parts of water. So, if you use tablespoons, you will need 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 3 tablespoons of water. Mix them all well and you have your shampoo.
And if your hair is longer, you should use 3 parts baking soda and 9 parts water. So, if we again use tablespoons – 3 tablespoons basking soda, and 9 tablespoons water.
After you have mixed it well, pour the solution in a squeezing bottle. This is the best kind of container, because this way you can apply the baking soda shampoo everywhere on your hair. And this point is important here, because you do not need to apply it only on the roots of your hair or the tips, but everywhere.
When you have made sure that your hair is nicely shampooed with the baking soda, massage your scalp and hair a little.
Then leave your hair like this for about 3 minutes. While you are waiting you can wash your body and the time will be up. All you have left to do is to rinse your hair. Remember that you have to rinse it and not wash it with another shampoo, because this way the effect from the baking soda will be gone.
You should do this at least two times a week if you want to see any results coming. And you need to remember one more thing, you have to be patient. At first you will feel your hair strange, but in a month or even a couple of weeks you will notice the difference.
