Amp your Hair up with Vinegar!

9 Apr

Apple Cider vinegar is a natural way to boost your hairs shine and helps breakdown the buildup caused by shampoos, conditioners and other hair products.

It has a naturally high acid balance which makes it an excellent cleaning agent as well. It helps to restore the hair by breaking down films left over from hair products,  it combats sebum oils and helps bring dull hair back to a shine!

There are many different mixtures you can try out like; Mix one part vinegar with approximately four parts water and soak the hair. Leave on for 15 minutes, allowing the vinegar to penetrate down towards the scalp and roots, rinse away, then wash your hair normally.

Other mixtures can include the combinations of baking soda to Sage oils and other oils for a more pleasant scent.

Remember it is still acidic, so use in moderation as to not dry out the hair…

Vinegar can also be used for at home treatments to help with dandruff and Acne problems too!

    Make sure that you are gentle when using any baking soda in your mixtures, and that you mix in enough water to soften the paste. I have a client who scrubbed too hard with a baking soda mixture, and caused serious breakage at her roots. This type of damage does take quite a long time to grow back, because the entire hair shaft gets split and broken with the scrubbing!

    If you are into all-natural haircare, this is an excellent option. For a great conditioner, I recommend virgin organic coconut oil from the mid-lengths to ends. Use this sparingly! On wavy to straight hair, wait until your hair is dry, and use the tiniest amount as you work it upwards from the ends. On wavy to curly hair, you can comb a small amount through when it’s wet and let it air-dry.

    I forgot to add, use baking soda FIRST before rinsing with vinegar. The baking soda will neutralize the stinkiness of the vinegar…if not diluted enough the vinegar can be a little smelly. I’ve tried this process on myself!
