Trending up: Baking Soda Shampoo

scrub that hair, hipster

So what if Grandpa called them “dirty hippies”, we all know that modern day hipsters bathe and take pride in their manes of flowing patchouli-stink hair. But why take a shower using traditional shampoo? Doing so obviously scores you no elitist membership club points. Shampoo is full of “chemicals” and potential carcinogens. In fact, many hipsters are pointing their pretentious fingers at manufactured items, wondering what’s really in the ingredients and what are these ingredients doing to their health? Bygone are the days of the dirty hippy, so if you must shower, how can you be more hip about it?

Step one: run to the cupboard, grab all the baking soda and vinegar you can find. Step two: while it may feel gritty at first, mush some of the baking soda and water through your locks. Step three: (the most important step in my book) after rinsing, give yourself a splash of vinegar conditioning treatment. While the battle rages on over the best vinegar: apple cider or white distilled, the number of uses for this kitchen ingredient certainly continues to grow. Take it as a badge of pride when the other hipsters look at your foaming swirly hairdoo and call you “volcano head.” For added pizzaz, try using the same process for your “south of the border” hair.
