I did this last night. I shampooed with the CV nettle bar, then applied 1/2 cup of baking soda mixed KBB Milk and left on for 2 hours. I rinsed in warm water then applied Robert Craig conditioner. I combed to untangle...comb went through very easily. I then air dried.

This morning, I wet and applied Kiss My Face Upper Management gel. My hair is shiner, bouncier today and 98% frizz free. Less shrinking could be due to the new gel. I have noticed that when I use Ohm SHP, it doesn't shrink as much as it does with KCCC.

Even though I shampoo at least once a week, I think I will do the baking soda cleanse once a month to clarify.

Thanks for posting about this!

Edited to add: Does it matter how old the baking soda is? I hate to admit it, but I have a six month old box in my fridge, and that's all the Baking soda I have in the house.. will the level of its freshness matter in this process?

I'm going to start off small, maybe a tbsp in two handfuls of condish, and that will be it for my whole head until I get back results.

My staples: Mane n Tail (cowash), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine (leave in condish), Grapeseed oil or shea butter (sealing), Organic Root Stimulator Elasticitea (leave-in condish & light hold)
