On this episode of Hair DIY, we tackle the Apple Cider Vinegar hair treatment.
(Moving forward, Apple cider Vinegar will be referred to as ACV for easier understanding.)
How Do I Use It?
I use ACV in my water,
a few drops in my bottled water adds flavour and boosts my metabolism.
Also I put it in my smoothies; in certain smoothie recipes with cucumber, grapes, ginger etc.
I use it as the vinegar cleansing agent when I need to wash fruits
I use it when baking savoury snacks
I use it for my facial masks
Last but not the least, it can be used as a dry or wet shampoo rinse.
(Add in a spray bottle, mix with some water or rice water in my case.)
Why should you use it as a hair treatment.
ACV makes your hair smoother and easier to detangle,
ACV mixed with rice water makes your hair shinier, less frizzy, less prone to breakage and more moisturized. (I swear by it.)
ACV contains nutrients (vitamins B, C, and potassium), which are beneficial for your hair growth.
ACV can be used like methylated spirit to remove dead skin, dandruff as well as product buildup that blocks the pores on your scalp.
Naturalistas good news because ACV can also help with volume and curl definition
It stimulates hair growth by increasing blood circulation to hair follicles.
ACV does not contain any preservatives or added chemicals that might damage your hair!
Naturalista, need I say more?
Head to the store and purchase your ACV to treat your hair during this lockdown.
It may seem pricey now but trust me your bottle will last you for a while as ACV is only used in small quantities and more often than not needs to be diluted.
