I am often reminded of greasy hair products. Greasy hair shampoo has been nagging me for a while. Greasy hair is to be discouraged for our personal and professional lives. Why should we bother to care about our hair any way? You really want to have the most perfect hair you can. You know what I’m talking about don’t you. If you have any questions or suggestions let me know. That’s right up until this point.
Some years ago I suddenly developed really greasy hair. I’m not sure how it happened but it coincided with me taking Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) from Superdrug. I frantically tried to wash the grease out but to no avail. It only seemed to make matters worse!
Would Designer Shampoo Work?
I couldn’t go around wearing a hat for the rest of my life so decided to take a trip into town and bought, at great expense, a detox shampoo from Aveda. I was convinced it would work, it’s full of natural ingredients and is considerably more expensive than shampoos from the supermarket after all….
As soon as I got home I rushed upstairs to the bathroom and applied the shampoo, eagerly awaiting the results. I’ve always had really nice hair, even if I do say so myself.
I couldn’t believe it… my hair still looked as if I’d dunked it into a deep fat fryer! Would I ever have beautiful hair again??
What Would We Do Without The Internet?
Out of sheer desperation I connected to the net in search of the answer to my prayers. I’m not sure what I typed into Google (probably something like “how to get rid of greasy hair” but I quickly came up with a site suggesting bicarbonate of soda.
Thank Heavens for Bicarbonate of Soda!
I applied a 50/50 mixture of shampoo and bicarb of soda to my hair along with some water. Wanting to make sure that it did the job properly I left the mixture on my hair for half an hour. With great trepidation I rinsed and dried my hair to find that my hair had returned to normal. Yipee!
What Other Uses Are There for Bicarbonate of Soda?
- If you want really clean skin without using harsh soaps, simply mix in some bicarb of soda into your shower gel or face wash and you’ll have skin cleaner than ever before.
- Put a pinch of it into a vase to keep your flowers fresh.
- Put 8tbsp of soda in the toilet bowl overnight to keep it fresh.
- Sprinkle it onto carpets, leave for 10 mins and vacuum up to get rid of pet odors.
