It Works!!

I just have to give a big endorsement of Lizzie's recipe for baking soda shampoo. Sure, it's cheap and it's all-natural, but why not just use regular shampoo?

Aside from avoiding phthalates, it turns out there's an even better reason. This stuff cures dandruff better than any expensive high-tech dandruff shampoo on the market!

For some reason, most of the guys I know suffer from dandruff issues, and my husband's were getting bad. Head & Shoulders didn't fix it, and he only got moderate results from a very pricey bottle of KMS. He had to use the dandruff shampoo every single day to avoid that festive Christmas-flocking effect.

Then a few days ago, he ran out of shampoo and didn't have time to go out to buy more, so he whipped up some of the baking soda shampoo and vinegar conditioner from Lizzie's blog post. (See, men can read and enjoy our blog too!) Lo and behold, his hair is glossier, silkier, less oily, and there is not one hint of dandruff. We haven't seen any in days!

So, I'm a convert, and I hope y'all don't mind the double post. I just had to share these awesome results and encourage the world to give this a try. Don't you just love it when the best solution also turns out to be the cheapest one?


  1. I am a new follower of your blog, and love it so far!

    I having been looking up homemade shampoo solutions, and am surprised it never occurred to me to use baking soda and vinegar--I use it for everything else!

    Anyway, I tried this and am quite pleased with it (and I LOVE the smell of vinegar), however I have a feeling it may not go over well with the hubby!

  2. I wonder if this would help in fading some dark color from my hair. I'm going to have to give it a shot.

  3. How exciting! It thrilled me when I realized it worked. In hospital I was so upset to be using regular shampoo!

  4. Welcome, Cedar! Good luck with your husband - maybe if you show him the price difference between good shampoo and baking soda, and model your beautiful baking soda hair for him, he'll come around!

    I was just so amazed that it cured dandruff so well. My husband's hair looks better than it ever has, and not a single flake of dandruff since the first day he switched to this.
