I haven't used baking soda on my hair in years--I've been water only for about 6 years now, and I much prefer it. When I first went no poo, however, I mixed it each time. I kept a plastic container full of soda on my bathtub, and a plastic cup to mix it in. While in the shower, I would shake out my soda into my cup, fill it with a little water from the shower and use. It really took no longer than using shampoo. I would then rinse out the cup and fill it with a little vinegar (also on my bathtub) and water, and pour that on my head.
I still very occasionally do a vinegar rinse on my hair now. Maybe a couple times a year.
