Winter and in-door heaters and air conditioners can leave your hair dry and wrecked with dullness and frizz. This leaves your hair looking and feeling stressed out. And, let’s admit it, if we don’t feel like we look good, we don’t feel as great as we could!
Thankfully, there is a way to get your hair shiny and healthy again, naturally! This item should be in your pantry if it isn’t already because there are at least ten other uses I can think of where Apple Cider Vinegar can be used throughout your house (and on you).
Use this apple cider vinegar rinse and you will be happy you did! Apple cider vinegar balances out the pH level in your hair because it is acidic. It is a great cleanser and effectively removes dirt and oil from the scalp. That plus the fact that apple cider vinegar is a great conditioner as well helps rid your scalp of dandruff.
Moreover, the reason apple cider vinegar is recommended for shiny hair is because of it’s acidic properties. ACV helps smooth the hair cuticle resulting in a sleeker finish on your hair. A sleeker finish means your hair will reflect more light = shiny and healthy hair!
- Apple Cider Vinegar- 2 tablespoonsn for short hair; 4 tablespoons for long hair
- Warm water – 1/2 cup for short hair; 1 cup for long hair
Mix the apple cider and water together and apply to your hair and scalp using your fingers. You just want to get your hair and scalp wet so make sure you don’t completely soak your hair. You don’t have to use the entire mixture.
Let the solution stay in your hair for about 10 minutes or so. You can use a shower cap or saran wrap if you want but it’s not necessary. Once the 10 minutes are up, rinse out your hair with cool water as it helps to keep your hair cuticle smooth.
