Baking Soda In My Hair?

I have shared my belief that 'natural' is not always better in numerous posts. Meaning just because something claims to be natural or is out of your pantry does not make it good to put in your hair.

I have also emphasized the importance of being informed, the effect of pH on the hair, primarily how it affects your hair's moisture balance.
 In line with my insistence on being informed and understanding, at least to some degree, the chemistry of hair (it's important to understanding its needs), here is an interesting article from that speak to all of the above. It's about baking soda. Check it out HERE.

And for a recap of the posts I have shared that addressed the above, check these out:
