Inspired by the recent posts, I thought I could also share a few organic and cheap tips that I have found to be great.
For shampoo, I make a fairly runny paste from warm water and 3 or more tbsp of rye flour (this depends on the length of the hair) and then add one egg yolk (not necessary). I distribute it throughout the roots of my wet hair and rub before washing it off. Letting it sit for a few minutes makes it more effective. Then I usually rinse with diluted apple cider vinegar.
All ingredients are nutritious and my hair has never been this healthy, thick or shiny! I have not tested the baking soda shampoo but based on what I read from the web, it might not cleanse as well and can irritate your scalp and hair in the long run, because it has a strong base on the pH scale.
The only con is that you need to brush your hair carefully since there’ll be little grains of flour left in your hair.
If you have Celiac disease, I believe you shouldn't use this one.
Washing my face with oatmeal as shown in the link instead of using face cleansers has worked wonders in healing and smoothing my skin. http://rebeccakelsey.com/2015/04/how-to ... h-oatmeal/
Coconut oil is a good moisturizer for both face and body. You can also do ‘oil pulling’ before washing your teeth, which has several health benefits and even natural whitening effects. https://wellnessmama.com/7866/oil-pulling/
