Natural Ways To Clean Hair Without Shampoo


Do you suffer from hair problems? If yes, it is time to change the shampoo and conditioner you are presently using.

According to beauty experts, it is stated that 90 percent of men and women suffer from dandruff and hair loss, and the main cause of this problem is using a wrong shampoo.

Experts suggest that if you're suffering from an oily scalp and if it requires for you to wash or rinse your hair every day, skipping the shampoo and conditioner can be ideally the best tip to make use of.

Rinsing your tresses with shampoo every day will only lead to further hair problems and the situation may become a lot more worse when the shampoo is not scalp friendly!

To clean your hair without a shampoo, there are simple remedies that you can follow in order to ward off those unwanted hair problems.

Baking soda should be your first preference. All you need to do is sprinkle 1 tablespoon of baking soda on to your scalp when it is damp.

Massage the baking soda on the scalp and into the roots, and rinse the hair like how you would with a regular shampoo. After 15 minutes of this massage, rinse the hair with apple cider vinegar.

The vinegar balances the alkalinity of the baking soda, removes buildup and residue, and also closes the hair cuticles. So, take a look at some of the other natural ways to clean your hair without using a shampoo:


Peppermint Wash:

In a round bowl, add one cup of water. Boil the water to a medium temperature and add in a handful of peppermint leaves. Allow the leaves to soak in hot water for about 10 minutes. Strain the water and keep the limp leaves aside.

Now, rinse the hair and scalp with the water and using the limp leaves massage the scalp. The juice emitted from the peppermint leaves will help to remove the residue and dirt from the scalp. This is one of the best and most natural ways to clean your hair without a shampoo.


Soda Wash:

Wash your hair with plain soda once in a week to get rid of dandruff. All you need to do is to rinse the scalp and strands with fresh soda. Allow it to dry on the scalp for 6 minutes, before rinsing it well with clean running water.
