I tried baking soda twice. Once in Cherry Lola treatment and once mixed with conditioner. I only used a little and it dried the crap out of my hair. Never again.

Personally, I'd go with a more "traditional" method. I use natural soap bars, cleansing conditioner and occasional lowpoo (every few months.)
