2 cups of warm water
1 tablespoon of Baking Soda
Just add the ingredientz to an old shampoo bottle... shake well and the baking soda will dissolve in the warm water so don't worry about it being gritty...pour half of it over ur hair and massage n2 ur scalp, clean and then rinse... then take the rest and do it again making sure to work it in the hair so it will remove n e thing that may be left behind.....n my opinion i dont think 1 tablespoon iz enuff...so of course u kno i had 2 do xtra...but um i used 2 big cupz of warm H20 & maybe about 2 tblz of the baking soda...i just eyeballed it...um dont think it really did n e thing 4 my hair...so i had 2 call 4 back up...i used a clarifying poo once followed by a clarifying condish once...now somebody told me a few key thingz 2 remember when doing thiz: 1 it does not cleanse well if you have a lot of product in your hair...2 if you add 2 much baking soda to ur mix, ur hair will get hard....O & 1 more thing.... try adding some to ur conditioner....i have yet 2 try adding it 2 my condishez yet...i waz just NOT impressed with the fact that it didnt work on my hair @ all...could b bcuz i had 2 much product on my hair already...hmmm...n n e case, the jury iz still out.
Seals in moisture and helps protect against future moisture loss...leaves hair healthy, shiny, and soft to the touch....*AMEN*...i luv thiz stuff 2...my hair iz soft while im poo'ing...now who eva heard of that b4?...usually my hair feelz stripped after i poo, but not with pantene...thatz y i refuse 2 stray from these productz eva again...i get my BIG bottle @ walmart 4 about $3.99 i believe...my hair thrivez off of thiz stuff...truly another keeper 4 me!

a couple of monthz ago while i waz surfing the hair sitez, i stumbled upon thiz recipe 2 keep ur hair moisturized...so of course being the person that i am, i had 2 try it...ill try n e thing once, maybe twice....the ingredientz were 100% aloe vera gel & glycerin mixed 2gether n a spray bottle...thatz it, nuthin else...some folkz choose 2 use aloe vera juice & distilled H20 & some even use the juice with glycerin...i havent tried neither, nor do i care 2....i think due 2 the fact that the juice iz pretty much the equivalent of H20, it will eventually evaporate & u will have 2 continuously spritz ur hair all day...i dont have that kind of time...there 4 i opt 2 use the gel...initially i bought my *Lily of the Desert* aloe vera gel from the vitamin shoppe, & got fabulouz resultz...hair iz moisturized the whole day...doesnt dry out, @ all...but since then ive switched 2 the *Fruit of the Earth* brand from walmart...what ive discovered tho iz that due 2 the consistency of the walmart brand being a tad bit thicker, u have 2 actually dilute the mixture with a lil H20...thiz did not sit well with me @ all...after thiz bottle, i will b going back 2 the vitamin shoppe brand...that way i wont have 2 add n e thing xtra 2 my mix...just spritz once daily, & im good 4 the whole day!!!
