I do 1/3 c corn starch, 1/3c baking soda, 3 Tablespoons coconut oil, 2 Tablespoons vitamin E oil (or omit if you don’t have it–I’ve done it without this. But increase the coconut oil if you omit), 20 drops of some antibacterial and/or antifungal essential oils (I use all eucalyptus, but I think you can use others like tea tree oil, peppermint, lavendar, etc…or do a combination).
Just mix together. This actually makes quite a bit, so I think you could halve it if you want. I just put it in a baby food jar. You have to apply it with your fingers, but otherwise it’s not messy. Coconut oil varies between more liquid-y and more solid depending on the temperatures…so the deodorant goes from runnier in the summer to more solid in the winter. Either way it works the same! You can decrease the oil some if you want it thicker. Coconut oil has naural antifungal and antibacterial properties.
It works great for me, as great as any store bought deodorant.

I did the Curly Girl method one summer. My curls were perfect corkscrews and super healthy and smooth! I don’t think my curls ever looked better. The problem with that method is it’s really impossible to wear your hair straight when you’re doing that. It looks greasy. But I do admit, my hair looked awesome with very little effort.
My hair has thinned a lot so I wear it straight now. I have a keratin treatment and color, so I’d never use baking soda and vinegar on my hair. It would strip the heck out of it!
I do use sulphate free shampoo, but only because of the keratin treatment. I don’t feel they clean as well. I do my keratin every 6 weeks and have to do a major clarifying treatment beforehand.
