hair product buildup cure
I use a gel before blowdrying, a thickening spray once my hair is dry (to "place" my hair, especially my bangs) and a final spray of hairspray to capture the days creation haha. Needless to say my hair gets quite crunchy and my bangs get this gross "coating". After much trial and error, today I mixed a heaping tablespoon of baking soda with my shampoo, lathered and left it on for a few minutes (3 or 4) before rinsing and conditioning...IT WORKED WONDERS!! all the goop is gone, my hair is super soft and shiny. Just had to share because its great when you find something that works and is CHEAP (I've spent a fortune on clarifying and purifying shampoos).
