You most probably have heard of the many health benefits of apple cider vinegar such as improving insulin sensitivity, increased feeling of fullness, and lower cholesterol. However, I recently found out that diluted ACV can be used as a substitute for your regular hair conditioner as well (Disclaimer: Not to be used as frequently as your usual conditioner). See the super easy steps below:
- 1-2 tbsp apple cider vinegar * If you have oily hair, you can adjust the amount to 3-4 tbsp of ACV
- 1 cup of water
- Put the ingredients in a plastic bottle and give it a shake.
- After shampooing, pour the mixture unto your scalp, letting it run through your hair. You can lean back a bit so you don’t get any into your eyes.
- Leave it for about a minute or two.
- Rinse hair. No need to use your regular conditioner afterwards. Surprisingly, your hair won’t smell like vinegar after rinsing 😊
- I recommend doing this once to twice a week. However, if you have dry and thin hair, it might be better to cut back and do it once to twice a month. Don’t overdo it. Give it a try and see what works for you.
Apple cider vinegar is acidic and helps balance the scalp’s natural pH. This DIY conditioner helps reduce frizz, and leaves hair smooth and shiny. And with all the gunk that we put on our hair, it helps get rid of product buildup that can accumulate. Plus it’s pretty cheap too 👍 Enjoy! 💜
