Shampoos, conditioners, gels, sprays, dyes…and sun exposure—no wonder our hair gets worn out and flat-looking! Here’s a simple kitchen-cabinet remedy to give your locks a lift: Add one tablespoon of baking soda to your regular portion of shampoo. Blend well, and massage into your scalp and hair as you normally would. Rinse well with tepid water, and skip the conditioner. Do this once or twice a week, and your hair will have a natural-looking shine and bounce.
