DIY Rosemary and Mint ‘No Poo’ Hair Cleansing Rinse

So, I’m doing the “no-poo” experiment on my hair. For those of you who don’t know, this doesn’t mean that you don’t cleanse your hair at all. Just that you don’t use traditional shampoos, which have harsh chemicals that strip your hair of it’s natural oils. They also leave residue behind that can be damaging to your hair.Apparently, cleansing your hair with a baking soda and water rinse is enough to remove dirt and excess oil, leaving your hair clean, shiny, and healthier. I was skeptical I’ll admit, especially because I’ve been using styling products, and I didn’t think this would be enough to remove them. I was wrong! It works like a charm. Here’s the most exciting part. It’s practically free to make. I’ve been wasting hundreds of dollars (at least) per year on products that were supposed to give me better hair, when all along I could have been using this simple recipe for pennies a month!Here’s where I get hung up, though – I’m a sucker for a pretty bottle! And delicious smelling products that just make you feel prettier when you use them! So I went the extra mile and infused my cleanser with rosemary and mint, two herbs that are reported to be excellent for scalp health – which supposedly leads to stronger, faster-growing hair. Whether it makes your hair grow faster or not I couldn’t yet say, but at least it smells great! To satisfy my desire for an attractive package, I used glass bottles that I already had and made my own labels to stick on them. It makes me all warm and fuzzy to look at them. A glass bottle isn’t practical in the shower, though, so I’ll store these on my bathroom shelf where they can be seen, and I’ll keep refilling a plastic squeeze bottle to use in the shower for now.
