Step 1: Baking Soda Mix.

The measurements depend on your hair length. My hair is a little past my shoulders, and I have to make two "servings" for my hair. For the baking soda mix, get a cup. Add (for one serving) 3 tbsp. and then three times as much water. (9 tbsp) you will use this as a shampoo. In The picture it is not stirred, but before putting it in your hair, stir it.

Step 2: RINSE HAIR WITH WARM WATER

Step 3: Vinegar Mix.

For this, get a separate cup. This will act as a conditioner. For making this, again, I have to make two "servings" for my hair. It varies. For one "serving" put in 3 tbsp of distilled vinegar. Distilled is better. I can't remember exactly why. But it is. Trust me. ^_^ then add 4 tbsp of water. Here is where you can add the oil. I've never tried any other oil but olive oil. Olive oil works really well. But don't pour to much because then it will be hard to get out. This mix acts as a conditioner. The vinegar is VERY strong in smell, so it is optional to add things like lavender to help your hair smell better afterwords

Step 4: RINSE HAIR WITH COLD WATER

After rinsing, make sure it doesn't feel to oily, other wise you will have to rinse it again. This treatment can be done from every two to three days. I don't know what happens if it's down before then. But that's what's recommended.

    Well It worked for me. But the back of baking soda boxes also say that you can use it for your hair to grow it thicker as well.
