Baking soda and Vinagar for colored hair?

Hello, I just re-colored my hair and I was wondering if it was safe to use baking soda and Apple cider vinegar for cleaning my hair? Will it take color out and make it fade quicker? Or is it less likely to fade as quick if I use that instead of shampoo with the harsh sulfates? Thank you.

    I've heard it makes the color fade faster. I know that when you need to remove some henna, at least one manufacturer recommends washing your hair with baking soda.

    Also, since baking soda may lift your cuticle (the ACV closes it again), you may actually be "releasing" the color from your hair. That closed cuticle keeps the color in your hair.

    Baking soda and vinegar can be just as harsh as shampoo.
    Why not try using conditioner to cleanse your hair?

    So easy, not damaging, and colour lasts and lasts.

    AND it's cheap.

    Garnier Fructis Pure Clean has no silicones or parabens so it works great.
    Look up co-shampooing here and you'll find lots of into on how to do it, but basically you just use a lot of non-silicone conditioner, mush around and comb your hair through, rinse and your hair will be awesome. Many people here never use shampoo anymore. It's so damaging to curly hair.
