You know how the hair dresser tells you to buy this expensive stuff to get old shampoo buildup and hairspray off your hair? Mine had gotten wiry and stiff looking. Well, more than likely all you need is baking soda. A hairdresser suggested I use it on my hair and by golly it worked.

This is what I did - I put one teaspoon baking soda (the amount you use could vary - experiment) in a small amount of water. I got my hair wet and rubbed the solution in. Then I shampooed my hair, distributing the solution further that way. I rinsed it and by golly it worked. The next couple of times I shampooed my hair it seemed more and more conditioned. Now it's soft and shiny again... Try it.

Thanks Vi! I just told my daughter about this too.

The guy who cuts my hair and was a beautician for 43 years told me it was a waste of money to buy those expensive shampoos. I never did but I have friends who buy that Pantene stuff. I wash my hair every day. Who wants to spend that kind of money for shampoo which he said is no better than Suave brands?

My neighbor uses Pantene and is always asking me what I use because she said my hair is always so shiny. She was surprised when I told her my shampoo is only 99 cents a bottle. I use Suave or Alberto brands. I also buy L 'Oreal Kids (for the smell) and Fructise Garnier.

Yeah, there is no need for the expense. Pantene leaves my hair feeling gummed up. Suave dries out my hair. I use Jhirimack for silver hair. Once upon a time it was expensive, but then someone bought it out, so it's reaasonable now. One thing I've discovered is that what works, not only depends on one's own hair and skin, but also on the water. When I moved from the city to the country, I had to change shampoo. The minerals in the water are different here. I think it's the hairspray that leaves a coating on my hair. But without it the front of my hair is very disobedient. I have lots of hair, but it's somewhat fine in texture.

Now that's very true Vi, water does make a difference in how the shampoo cleans the hair.

I avoid hairspray but I understand your need for it. Everyone's hair is different. I always loved Jhirmak shampoo too, especially the one that smells like oranges. I always open up shampoo to sniff it. Rolling Eyes

I'm trying to wean myself from hair spray. Now that my hair is getting wavy, if I don't use hairspray it waves nicer. But my bangs just won't stay in place without it. So I need to block it from getting to the rest of my hair while I spray my bangs.

I.ve never found shampoo build up a problem and I think the less you wash your hair the better! I only wash mine twice a week and this seems to be enough for me. I have heard that the vinegar or bicarb remedy is excellent! I think too using too many productS is also a big no-no. I've seen the word Pantene here a few times - I 've heard too many awful things about it and yes I have used it and I thought it was rubbish.

One think I can recommend for dry coarse hair is avocado oil. In summer when I'm swimming I dampen my hair and then rub avocado oil in it and wrap it into a tight plait or low bun. I find this stops the hair from drying out. At the end of the day I wash it out with my normal shampoo. I'm a fan of the Redken All-Soft range (which is slowly sending me broke) but guess what's in it! AVOCADO OIL!

Thanks Sassysoyna, I'll remember the avocado oil for when my hair dries out again. If I only washed my hair twice a week, it would be stringy and awful. Before menopause I had to wash my hair every day. My skin is that oily. Now I can get away with washing it every other day. This whole issue revolves around how oily one's scalp is.

You have beautiful hair. In fact your whole self is beautiful.

Yes, I've got to agree our Sonya is one beautiful lady!

I wash my hair every day but not because it's oily. I just like the look and smell of fresh, clean hair.

This is such a great idea. Thanks, Vi, for sharing it with us.
I have known for years about using mayo as a deep conditioning protein treatment and now I can add another "recipe" to my list.
