Re: No-Shampoo...just started!

then I put the cap on and shake it up until baking soda is dissolved and then I get in the shower and squirt the mixture all over my head from root to tip. then I let it sit on my hair for 10-30 minutes. no scrubbing necessary, the longer it sits the better. when I put peppermint oil in the shampoo it makes my scalp all tingly, like a cooling sensation. it feels amazing and it cures any itching. then I rinse in as cold of water as I can stand.
I'm going to try this! I'm going to clean out an old shampoo bottle. So excited!
