A natural way to cleanse and heal your body is ingesting Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). This same ACV can be used in natural hair care. Below are 6 ways in which apple cider vinegar aids in the health of your hair and scalp.
1. Cleansing and Clarifying
Our hair is occasionally looking dull and lifeless. Hair is weighed down by the accumulation of all the products we apply to our hair. It’s ok to use shampoos to was our hair but the #nosulphates gang us running the natural hair streets at the moment so the better alternative along with black soap is the ACV rinse. Let the rinse sit for no longer than 5 mins as studies have shown that it takes the ACV about 3 minutes to break up/dissolve the molecular structures of the product buildup.
2. Balances The Hair pH
The products we use such as shampoos, gels and conditioners, disrupt the natural pH of our hair and scalp. Apple cider vinegar has a pH level which is close to that of human hair. Consistent rinses with ACV can help bring the scalp and hair to its ideal acidity.
