When it comes to health choices I used to say I don’t like to be radical. That means I will always prefer to eat organic food, non-GMO and if possible local. But sometimes it is not possible to follow 100% because of many different reasons, but of course I will try my best, but I won’t go radical. ;) The same happens to cosmetic. I try to find and use natural and organic products as much as I can and when I find a natural solution or a natural recipe I love trying and comparing the results after.
I took this picture right after using the ACV and blow-dry it with no conditioner or oil!
This is the case of apple cider vinegar for my hair. Since I was a teenager I heard how great this kitchen ingredient is good for your hair and actually I have tried many times to give extra shinning and to treat dandruff. But this time I decided to really use as a regular treatment and I’ve chosen an organic ACV to really see the difference.
First of all, apple cider vinegar helps to treat dandruff, itchy and dry scalp. Since ACV has antibacterial and antifungal properties, it is just a perfect and inexpensive product for this annoying problem.
ACV can seal the hair cuticle, making it shinier and preventing split ends. It can also balance the hair and scalp PH, stimulates the circulation to the hair follicles, making your hair grows faster and stronger. And also, it can be used as a natural detangler conditioner.
How to use
Choose a good organic brand and mix it in a spray bottle with 1 cup water + 2 tablespoons ACV. The one I used was mixed with honey, but you can use a regular one.
In the shower, after shampooing you can apply the mix in your hair and massage for some minutes the scalp, the hair and ends. Then you can rinse it all and apply your favorite conditioner, or just rinse it all and don’t apply any conditioner or even just rinse a little and leave some ACV on your hair. Choose what works best for your hair. ;)
You can use 2 times a week or every other day, again, choose what is best for your hair.
And don’t worry, the smell goes away as soon as your hair gets dry. Trust me! ;)
