BLOG: THE APPLE VINEGAR BEAUTY TRICK

Having problems with dry & dull hair? Raised cuticles may be the culprit. Try an Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) rinse! An ACV rinse is great for hair that has raised cuticles. The acidic nature of the ACV helps to tighten and close those raised cuticles allowing your hair to retain more moisture.



Sometimes, I noticed that my hair would look very dry and dull. After some research, I realized the cause of this was that my cuticles weren't closed. All the moisture was leaving my hair as quickly as I was trying to put it in. After doing an ACV rinse, I notice that my hair holds more moisture, is smoother to the touch and has amazing shine!



The high acidity and powerful enzymes in ACV also support a healthy scalp while stimulating hair follicles to encourage healthier hair growth.



THE MIX:

- Use 1/4 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 cups of water.

- Mix that up and pour it over the hair in the shower as a final rinse after deep conditioning.

- The rinse will help lock in all the benefits from the Deep Conditioner, into your hair, by closing the cuticles.

- Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm/cool water.



PROS:

- Stimulates hair follicles, which encourages hair growth.

- Hair takes longer to dry. It has been said that this indicates healthier hair.

- Holds moisture better.

- Hair is smoother.

- Hair has more shine.



CONS:

- You may smell like vinegar for awhile if you don't use something in your hair afterward. I suggest using a leave-in conditioner. That should take away the smell.

- Stiff, hard hair if you don't use the right amount of ACV and water. The ACV has to be diluted for to work properly.


TIP :

If you suffer from porous hair, try looking for a shampoo with a pH below 6. So around 4.5-5.5 range. Elasta QP Creme Conditioning Shampoo has a low ph. Also Joico and Roux makes a porosity control shampoo and conditioner.

Until next time Hair Divas,


Sunshyne.

Who couldn't use more shine in their hair? I'm trying this. I love that it is a natural thing too.
