So you're serious about going product free? Great! Now it's time to find a regimen. You can still achieve beautiful, healthy hair with a minimalist regimen of just two ingredients.
Build-up from hair products can create dull hair. Baking soda can be used to remove build-up and excess oils as well as wash away water impurities.
- Dissolve 1 tbsp of baking soda in 1 cup of water
- Pour this over your hair and scrub as you would with shampoo
- Rinse very well with cool water

Apple Cider Vinegar
An apple cider vinegar rinse can help balance the pH of your hair and remove buildup from styling products and shampoos. Rinsing also closes the cuticle which covers and protects the surface of each hair shaft. This creates a smoother surface leaving your hair shinier, smoother and easier to manage.
- Mix 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar in 1 cup of water
- Pour this over your hair as if doing a hair rinse
- Let it sit in your hair for a couple of minutes
- Rinse out your hair with cool water
People always want to know: "But will my hair smell?"
Your hair will smell like apple cider vinegar when it is wet. Once it dries, the smell will go away. Using cool water instead of hot will help minimize the smell too.

Frizz Free, Product Free
If you’re having trouble with frizz, there are natural oils you can use, such as aloe vera, flax seed oil, grape seed oil, shea butter (for curlies) or even castor oil.
If your hair is very curly and needs extra moisture, deep condition your hair with natural products like virgin coconut oil, honey, or banana once a week. It’s all natural and very healthy.
