Tuesday Tip: Deep Clean Your Hair With This Baking Ingredient

Tuesday Tip: Deep Clean Your Hair With This Baking Ingredient(Art by Tanya Leigh Washington)True story: many drugstore shampoos and conditioners contain wax as cheap filler, which steadily coats your mane through use. But before you chuck what's left of your daily hair products, we've found a way to gently strip the gunk from your strands, courtesy of New York-based celebrity hair stylist Christopher Marrero, who has tended to the tresses of Rachel Zoe, Kate Upton, Nicky Hilton and Katy Perry. Listen in for squeaky clean strands.

Waxes, silicones, oils, and minerals can all build up on your hair over time, making it dull and lifeless. To give your locks more body and shine by removing excess buildup, simply mix one teaspoon of baking soda and a quarter-sized amount of a clarifying shampoo—my recommendation is Original & Mineral Original Detox Shampoo—in the palm of your hand. Massage the mixture into your hair and scalp, working it into a lather for about one to two minutes, then rinse thoroughly and finish with a very hydrating conditioner such as Original & Mineral Original Detox Conditioner. Your strands will sing your praises! But be careful not to overdo it: twice per month for natural, non-colored hair and once per month for color-treated hair is plenty. Any more than that may strip too much of your natural oils, actually making it feel drier."
