Homemade No Color Strip Cleansing Shampoo

READY IN: 1min
Recipe by Helping Hands

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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix Baking Soda and water in small plastic travel bottle.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Use as shampoo, massage through hair, and rinse throughly. Ideal to follow with conditioner.
  4. NOTE: I recommend mixing it with a very small amount of your regular shampoo for more lather.
