Howdy Y'all....I'm not exactly sure if baking soda is good for hair. If you read the ingredients list on the label it says that baking soda is a sodium. I do'nt really understand how a sodium could benefit hair. It sounds damaging to me. I have been using it mixed with water as shampoo for several weeks. I have'nt had bad results but i definitely do not want to continue this if it is a bad habit! I have also been using ACV mixed with water as a conditioner. I could understand how it smooths the cuticle and adds shine, but I do'nt know if it actually moisturizes. I need someone with experience and knowledge to tell me if what I am doing is wrong!!!!! Would I be better off co-washing?
