This Life-Changing Hack For Frizz-Free Hair Only Costs $1

What you'll need: club soda.

The flavorless, bubbly beverage that adults pretend to like contains bicarbonate, which is also a great agent for clarifying your hair and restoring its luster.

It removes any product residue, buildup from sweat, and even chlorine and salt water from swimming in the pool or ocean. Celebrity hair colorist Beth Minardi tells BuzzFeed Life that it "refreshes the scalp, dilutes and then lifts away the chlorine, and quickly 'fills' the cuticular layer of the hair, supporting protection."

Club soda has also been used to tame frizz, and to keep the hair soft for people who live in areas where the water is "hard," meaning it has a high mineral content.

It's gentler than clarifying shampoos, which often leave the hair feeling stripped and brittle, and you can find a bottle at just about any grocery or convenience store for one to two dollars.

To give your hair a club soda rinse, shampoo and condition as you normally would.

Some suggest skipping the conditioner, but if your hair is coarse, curly, and/or easily tangled, it's probably best to condition so that moisture is replenished and your hair is easier to manage.

Once your hair is clean, pour a can of club soda evenly over it.

If you're out swimming and don't want to rush in to shampoo your hair, Minardi says that you can keep a bottle of club soda in your tote and do a quick rinse to immediately remove the toxins. Just remember to shampoo and condition later.

The nifty hack works on all lengths and textures, too, making hair fresh, shiny, soft, and frizz-free.
