Baking Soda - Helps to make the hair porous so that it better receives the treatment. It essentially helps the cuticle to lift.
This is the part where you get your life! Yes, your whole entire life, because if you don't know what ingredients do what with your hair, you will be a victim of the very same propoganda that had you using Dark and Lovely religiously for the better part of your childhood and young adult hood.

- 16 oz of plain yogurt
- 2 tbsp of Bragg’s Amino Acids
- 2 tbsp of Baking Soda
*Apparently this mixture foams because of the baking soda, which makes complete sense if you paid any attention in chemistry. It also stinks and that may be due to the amino acids and baking soda mix.*
- Mix all the ingredients together.
- Slather mixture on hair from roots to tips
- Leave on for 20 to 40 minutes at least.
- Rinse out mixture and continue as usual.
*You may want to co-wash to get rid of the scent. Quite frankly, if it smells worse than and ACV rinse, I would recommend co-washing as well.
