Baking Soda and Hair Conditioner

 
We've tried this activity several times and each time, its a huge hit!  All you need is 3 parts baking soda to 1 part hair conditioner.  We find the VO5 or Suave conditioner at Walmart for less than $1.00!  Totally worth it!
 
Measure out the ingredients...

Mix however you want, we like to use our hands but some kids don't like the texture, so I always have spoons for them to use.

 
Keep mixing....
 
it will begin to stiffen up....



 
The nice thing about using hair conditioner is there are so many choices of scents and colors.  We used a "raspberry" scented one and it came out pink and yummy smelling.  Another awesome plus with this activity.....it cleans up super easy!Pin It

Hi, I guess my girla will love it!
Is the conditioner liquid or foam?
Thanks from Italy (Venice)

Hi Monica! We used liquid conditioner but it would be great to see if the foam worked too. Call it a science experiment! Enjoy
