Hard water and homemade soap
I have been using shampoo that I have made for about a month now on my hair and my daughter's hair.
Her hair is soft and shiny once dry, but my hair is always a mess. I don't know if its grease or buildup. It is sticky and my hair just looks awful.
We also have hard water and I don't know if that is the cause. Should I put baking soda or some kind of salt in my shampoo that I make to counteract the hard water?Answer:
I don't think adding in salt or baking soda will fix the problem.
If it was a result of hard water I think you might have already had this problem before using your handmade shampoo.
Everyone's hair is different and not all hair types like the same products. I would first start with a vinegar rinse to see if that will remove the build up. If that doesn't work you may need to formulate a different recipe for your hair type. Research online to find the oils that will work best for your hair.
