Most ladies like myself use a lot of hair products in their hair and get product build up. Product build up can weigh down your hair and make it look dull and lifeless. One of the best natural ways to remove product build up from your hair is by using a homemade baking soda shampoo in your hair to help cleanse and remove the product build up from your hair.

If you can not find the essential oils they do not need to be used in the baking soda shampoo. The essential oils just help add a pleasant scent to your hair.
