5. Hair Clarifier
You can use baking soda to remove the crud that accumulates in your hair as a result of normal shampooing. Doing this once per month will leave your hair softer and shinier, but beware that baking soda has a very high pH and can throw off the pH balance of your hair. Use a low pH conditioner after a baking soda treatment to restore your hair’s normal balance. Some people use vinegar to clarify their hair, apple cider vinegar to be exact, but that leaves an unpleasant odor that baking soda does not.
