To prevent the side effects of industrial shampoos, you can choose suitable and natural alternatives for them. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with some of the most useful hair detergents.
Fans of traditional medicine are increasing day by day, because most of us have seen the consequences of using chemical drugs. Among the benefits of using natural alternatives is maintaining the quality of hair, which is weakened when using shampoo.
Some chemicals in shampoo
Butylated hydroxyanisole: This substance is used as a preservative in shampoos. This substance consists of two organic substances, which in some researches have been associated with all kinds of allergies, endocrine disorders, damage to internal organs, and cancer.
Scent: The different scent of the shampoo indicates the presence of different chemicals in the composition of the shampoo.
Cocamido propyl betaine: this substance is a type of combined surfactant or surface active substance that is related to itching and skin irritation.
Loreth sulfate: This substance is also considered a surface active substance that is used in many artificial detergents, including soap, shampoo, and toothpaste. This substance is associated with scalp itching.
4,1-Dioxane: It is a chemical compound that is said to be carcinogenic.
Shampoos reduce the natural sebum of the scalp. Therefore, if a natural alternative is used instead, it can strengthen the oiliness of the scalp.
Therefore, if you use less shampoo, you will notice that your hair will become greasier. What is the natural and cheap alternative to shampoo? The combination of vinegar and baking soda is very effective for washing hair.
Pour baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in a ratio of one to three with water in a squeeze bottle. If your hair is long and reaches your shoulders, triple the amount of baking soda and water. That is, combine three teaspoons of baking soda with three times the amount of water. This combination should be suitable for the size of your hair.
This combination is used for dry and wet hair. Apply the mixture from the roots to the ends of the hair and let it stay on for a few minutes. Then wash your hair with warm water. This will give you good results.
After this, you should wash your hair with vinegar.
Washing hair with vinegar
To prepare the vinegar, you need to mix some apple cider vinegar or white vinegar with four times the water. Of course, you can also add some oil such as peppermint, lavender or rosemary oil. This will reduce the smell of vinegar. Wait for a while and then wash your head with cold water.
