Get the Smell off of Your Hands
Do you have some stinky stuff stuck on your hands? I always have this problem after making meals like meat loaf. To get the smell off, you can simply rub your hands down with baking soda and rinse them under running water.
Using Baking Soda as a Dry Shampoo
A lot of salons out there now are offering up expensive dry shampoo options, which will be applied to your hair and enable you to go for a few days without having to wash your hair, but you could try a handful of baking soda, instead. Simply put some baking soda in your hands and just rub it into your scalp and rub it in around the roots of your hair. The baking soda will absorb all of the oil and it will leave your hair feeling fresh and clean. I started doing this a few years ago and my hair feels so much better. I have nowhere near as much frizz and I can also go for much longer periods of time without having to get a haircut, because I don’t have split ends nowhere near as often as I used to. Plus, baking soda is really cheap.
