Borax liquid is ready to use as shampoo, too. It does not

lather but goes right to work removing sweat and soil without

stripping your color or natural oils. It inhibits scalp bacteria and

stops flaking and itching. Hair gets squeaky clean so quickly (just

a few squirts does it) that you might think nothing has happened!

You will soon be accustomed to non-lathery soap. Rinse very

thoroughly because you should leave your scalp slightly acidic.

Take a pint container to the shower with you. Put ľ tsp. citric

(not ascorbic) acid crystals (see Sources) in it. For long hair use

a quart of rinse. Only citric acid is strong enough to get the borax

out, lemon juice and vinegar are not. After shampooing, fill the

container with water and rinse. Rinse your whole body, too,

since citric acid is also anti-bacterial. All hair shampoo

penetrates the eye lids and gets into the eyes although you do not

feel it. It is important to use this natural rinse to neutralize the

shampoo in your eyes. (Some people have

stated that citric acid makes their hair curlier or reddens it. If this

is undesirable, use only half as much citric acid.) Citric acid also

conditions and gives body and sheen to hair.
