  1. Create the baking soda paste

    Combine 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 3 to 4 cups of warm water into a plastic bottle and shake thoroughly. Allow the baking soda to fully dissolve, creating a paste.

  2. Part your hair into sections

    Thoroughly wet your hair, and part it down the middle. Part two sections on each side by separating the top and bottom sections of the hair, creating four sections of hair.

  3. Apply the baking soda paste to your scalp

    Apply the paste to each section of your hair, massaging the paste into your scalp as you go.

  4. Let the paste sit, and then rinse

    Allow the paste to sit in your hair for three to five minutes, and then rinse it out. Use the paste after regular shampooing, or in place of it. Finish by rinsing off with apple cider vinegar to close the hair shaft or use your regular conditioner.
