I know the last thing you would have ever thought of using to wash your hair is Apple Cider Vinegar. A lot of foods we hear about have these magical beauty powers, and it’s time for this rockstar to shine!
The top 6 ways to use and benefit from Apple Cider Vinegar are ….
Hair growth is often stunted by clogged hair follicles. The role Apple Cider Vinegar plays here is it cleanses the scalp, strengthens the hair follicles, increases circulation and promotes healthy hair growth.
Who doesn’t love their hair to shine? Due to Apple Cider Vinegar’s pH levels, a quick rinse at the end of your shower helps close the cuticle of the hair, allowing strands to feel softer with more shine.
Did you know that there are so many hair products that are not pH balanced! This means that if a product is too alkaline, your hair is likely to feel coarse, dry or brittle. Apple Cider Vinegar keeps your hair at an optimum pH level, cleansing the hair without stripping it of it’s natural oils.
Those of you with sensitive scalps will absolutely love! The pH balancing qualities of Apple Cider Vinegar mean hair is easier to comb through without causing breakage and tugging on strands.
SPLIT END REMEDY
Another perk you will love about the vinegar is it’s pH balancing powers. Which means split ends are sealed and moisture is retained; so kiss those heartbreaking haircuts goodbye.
The phenomenal vinegar has anti- inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties that kill the yeast that causes dandruff, flaking, or an itchy scalp.
Here are a few tips on how to use Apple Cider Vinegar:
After shampooing your hair, I recommend using Apple Cider Vinegar as a substitute for conditioner. Try mixing two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar with two tablespoons of water (try it in a spray bottle!) and a couple drops of essential oil (we love lavender for relaxation, rosemary for hair growth, or tea tree for dandruff). Massage into the scalp, then rinse with cool water. Repeat 2-3 times a week.
Also keep in mind that not all apple cider vinegar are made the same. It’s important to use organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar if possible for the most effective and immediate results.
