NaturallyCurly member Curly-Kinky says:

No more shampoo or conditioner for me. I have been “poo free” for a couple of weeks and still can’t get over how great my hair looks. This treatment costs around 3 cents and does the same thing as sulfate-free shampoos.

I use this plus I do an apple cider vinegar conditioner made with hot water and 1 teaspoon of vinegar in a spray bottle…Hair is very soft and not so wild the next morning.


  • 1 tbsp. baking soda
  • 8 oz. hot water


  1. Mix baking soda with hot water and stir or shake until well dissolved.
  2. You can use a funnel and put this in a container like a squirt bottle.
  3. Wet hair well, rub in some of the baking soda and mix into your scalp well.
  4. Rinse.
