All of those commercial products that we all have been using to make our hair “look good” can build up over time, because they often contain waxes, synthetic silicones, and silica that coats our hair.
Even if you are already using more natural products it can be iron and calcium deposits from hard water or sebum secretion on the scalp that are not helping you to have a healthy hair.
Build up can make adjusting to natural shampoo bars especially frustrating.
These substances are hard to remove from our hair and scalp, the best way to remove product buildup from the hair is to provide a good natural in-depth cleansing.
?Apple Cider Vinegar
Using apple cider vinegar is a great way to remove product buildup. You just need to wash your hair, as usual, rise with a mix of 2-4 tbsp apple cider vinegar with 1/2 litre cool/warm water let the mixture sit on your hair for 1-2 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
You can use lemon juice just like you use the apple cider vinegar. Mixing 2-4 tbsp tablespoons of lemon juice with 1/2 litre cool/warm water.
After the shampoo, rinse your hair and massage your scalp working through your hair. Allow it to soak in for 2-3 minutes, then wash it out with a good water rinse.
Baking soda is another great way to remove product build up from hair. Baking soda naturally lifts grease and product residue from your hair.
Combine 1 tablespoon baking soda with 1 – 2 cups warm water in a spray bottle or cup and rinse on your hair and work it through. Then rinse thoroughly with warm water, then shampooing as usual.
Removing product build up is essential for keeping your scalp and hair clean and healthy.

Hi Ana, it’s really a great idea, and for you as a traveler even more. The bars are usually hand sized pieces and they last for a really long time you would only need 1 bar for 2 people 😉
I’ve been meaning to try an ACV rinse!!!
It really works for me.. you should give it a try 🙂
Such wonderful tricks!
Do you find you need to use conditioner after using a shampoo bar and ACV?
not at all, the vinegar detangles my hair beautifully. So far the ACV has been enough 🙂
