Wash Hair with Baking Soda

Has anyone tried this? I did,with warm water and my hair feels strange. Its softer, but my curls are more wavy now. They are normally springy, ringlet little things with waves here and there. I like the refreshing feeling, but just want to hear of others experience.

*experimenting and loving it!
Its because hair likes pH closer to the acidic side... like 6-6.5ish and baking soda and water is basic. You are clarifying but taking the hair out of its element and that's why more curlies are starting to lean to ACV rinses. Get the right dilution going and as soon as it hits the hair you'll see spring!
Even water is more basic than hair which is why the products you use are key to providing balance. LOL.. my BF tells me my hair care is half witch doctoring and half chemistry and its totally true. Its constant balance.
