View Full Version : Natural Shampoo that won't break the bank?
12-24-2009, 10:28 PM
Does anyone know of an inexpensive, natural shampoo that I could possibly get at my local grocery store or pharmacy? I know alot of people recommend no shampoo at all, but I don't think I am ready to do that...
Also, I am thinking of using acv for conditioner, once I run out of what I have on hand... but, how do you use acv? equal parts water and acv...then how much do I use, how long do I leave on, then just rinse???
P.S. I have been lurking here awhile (I am trying to make small changes to a more natural lifestyle), and I cannot figure out what the letters in the phrase "SAD" diet stand for?

I don't use anything but baking soda mixed with water, followed by apple cider vinegar/water rinse. I don't think you can get any cheaper than that. :o
I never measure, I just pour some acv in a squirt bottle and fill the rest with water. I usually just pour some on, and rinse it right out.
SAD = standard American diet

Washing with conditioner is the healthiest. Dr. Bronner's mild baby soap mixed with water is another option. Otherwise grocery store or pharmacies rarely carry anything natural. Burts Bees is now sold in Walgreens & maybe some other places. Not all of their products work well though. It's good to read product reviews first.

Thank you for answering my questions. I am not sure about using baking soda on my hair, but I did pick up some Burt's Bees body wash today (I have always heard that body/bath washes are mild enough to use on your hair), so I will see how that works out for me...
I found a site online today that rates products and will maybe use that to find more products...

There are threads here that suggest that the healthiest option is to stop using shampoo.
I have stopped using soap on my body but still shampoo once a week but hope that some day I will give that up as well. The problem is that if you want to get your hair professionally cut then you must go to a salon and then it has to be shampo.

Hmmmm . . . the BS and vinegar rinse made my hair dready over the months. I did not see anything inexpensive at the HFS and purchased a $30 2 bottles one shampoo and one conditioner - not so great either. BB baby bar - seemed to leave wax on the hairs. . . . so am back to shampoo for now.
