lemon baking soda clarifying shampoo

During the week, we don't always have a lot of time in our busy lives to dedicate an entire hour (or more) to clarify our scalp. But sometimes, our curls absolutely cannot go another day without the dreaded wash day, and we need a solution that will get straight to the point and remove build-up like it's supposed to. This 25 minute scalp clarifier can be made at home and used every 6 weeks for best results.
