Baking Soda Hair Wash Leaves Hair Greasy

I'm using baking soda to wash my dry curly hair, but it's making my hair greasy looking. It looks like I haven't showered, lol. Why is this happening and what can I do to fix it?

Sounds like you aren't getting all of the baking soda out. Try a weak rinse of one part white vinegar and 9 parts water. If that doesn't work, try a little more vinegar. Be frugal with the vinegar as your hair as you indicated is dry to start with. These types of things take experimenting and patience.

If it were me, I would stop using Baking Soda, or anything that is making your hair look greasy, and find a nice hydrating shampoo from your favorite store. You can find very inexpensive shampoo that is great for dry hair, you don't have to spend a lot. Laboratories have spent money and hours to produce the best cosmetics so we don't have to. Good luck.

I would give up on the baking soda. I would never use anything such as that in my hair. Go get a nice, pleasant smelling, shampoo that is regulated for the type of hair that you have. Cosmetic companies have spent a long time developing shampoos and rinses for every type of hair.

You do not have to pay exorbitant prices; often a generic brand or inexpensive brand works just as well. I have no faith in these old fashioned home remedies; waste of time and effort, in my opinion. Baking soda is an alkali; I might use it to clean a sink, but never hair.
