    Helping Hands's Note:

    A former hairsylist turned me on to this secret for a cleansing shampoo for color-treated hair. Commercial cleansing shampoos are made to throughly cleanse your hair (ie remove all product build-up), but they also strip color. This homemade version helps to prevent stripping of color, but also throughly cleanses your hair. It is also much cheaper and can be made with products already in your home. I love it and use it once per week!

      A few years ago I went to my hairstylist in a complete panic because my hair was turning a dull flakey grey in patches. She took one look at it and laughingly told me not to worry that it was just product build up. She said it could be easily fixed by making a paste of baking soda and watert and letting it sit for about 5 - 10 minutes then deep conditioning. I trustingly went home and did as she instructed and was amazed that the patches were all gone and my hair was back to its normal color. I don't know that I would do it on a weekly basis but it does get rid of all the gunk that regular shampoo doesn't.

      I have been using this method for years. It removes all of the residue from your hairsprays and styling products. I usually use this solution first and then wash with a mild baby shampoo. Sometimes if you have used alot of products in your hair you can smell an odor of ammonia as it washes out all of the junk you have used.
