No Shampoo and Conditioner? Forever?!?

So I have been perusing StumbleUpon and found a blog that talks about going shampoo and conditioner free.

It seems that there are people who substitute the following instead of shampoo and conditioner.

Shampoo - 1/8th Baking Soda + 7/8ths tap water
Conditioner - 1/2 Apple Cider Vinegar + 1/2 Tap water.

I'm curious about trying this out, but wondered if anyone else has tried this?

  1. I've actually done two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in one cup of water as conditioner. It worked well and the smell disappears as it dries. It's also fun to seep herbs in the vinegar, strain, and then use. I've used lavender before and want to make up some chamomile vinegar as I'm a blonde.

  2. I've been told that you can scent up the vinegar. Also, if you have oily hair (which I sometimes do) you can use less or no vinegar at all.

    I'm curious to try this. I'm gonna have to wait until after my sister's wedding, but I'm totally curious!

  3. Well I tried the shampoo mixture this morning....but I didn't have any ACV, so my hair isn't what I'd call soft.
