If you've got buildup from chlorine or styling products, or perhaps your hair is looking a little lackluster, I've got a few solutions. Just head to the pantry, grab a few ingredients, and stir up your own homemade brew.
Do you need some clarity? Then perhaps it's time for a little DIY action. Keep in mind that for color-treated hair, it's probably best to use a clarifying shampoo specifically formulated to protect your color from stripping out. Check out three of my tips after the jump.
- Baking soda: When mixed with your regular shampoo, baking soda helps remove residue on the hair. And that's not all. This common kitchen ingredient works amazingly well for other beauty needs, too.
- Cider rinse: First shampoo hair, rinsing out all of the suds. Measure about 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar in a pitcher and add about four cups of water. Pour over hair and don't rinse out.
- Egg shampoo: Mix together one egg with a dash of lemon juice. Add to your shampoo of choice. Lather and rinse. Might I suggest that you use your leftover eggs and lemons to make a delicious eggs Benedict?
