I’ve recently had a Tubbs Hair Technique client comment that they feel the need to take a “product break” and to clean their scalp.
Whether driven by the need to clean or the need to take a product break, they shared with me that they’d tried something they recently read on an online “no-poo” hair care blog:
“I used baking soda, tea tree oil, and apple cider vinegar to wash my hair.“
Yes, that will certainly make your scalp feel clean and fresh; however, I would not recommend doing this very often because of the delicate pH levels on your scalp. Too much of this D-I-Y scalp cleansing will alter the delicate pH balance on your scalp and actually dry out your skin, which can lead to itching and, depending on your skin type, psoriasis. For others, too much of this routine could make your hair “frizzy”, it may lack luster, and it may feel brittle.
My professional advice? Go easy and be gentle with this D-I-Y approach.
I suggest instead of spending time (and money) chasing down the ‘best’ Internet D-I-Y ‘recipe’, perhaps investing in a high-quality hair care product that is pH-balanced will yield better results in the long run. Remember, you don’t need to wash your hair every day. Too much of a good thing can actually be a bad thing, too.
