A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about apple cider vinegar and its many benefits (Read: Faux Product Review 7: Apple Cider Vinegar).
About a week or so ago, I did my first apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinse. An ACV rinse balances pH in hair, exfoliates the scalp, removes buildup, closes hair cuticles, elimates flakes and itchiness, and improves the appearance of hair. I used a small spray bottle and filled it with half water and half apple cider vinegar. I recommend organic apple cider vinegar. The most popular brand is Bragg which is pretty much sold at every grocery store.
WARNING: It will smells like you are spraying pee that has been basking in the rays of sunshine. I thought it smelled disgusting while bathing but it’s waaaaay worse on your head. I cringe as I type this.
After, my hair felt super clean, no shrinkage, and a bit of shine (once it dried). No drastic results… It’s probably because my hair is already awesome. Anywho, I’m going to continue doing this just once a month.
Last night, I did an ACV rinse on husband. He has kind of a dry scalp. I warned him about the smell but apparently it wasn’t a sufficient warning. He turned into the biggest drama queen and just looked at me like this:
It was a struggle getting him to leave it in for a grand total of *drum roll* 3 minutes. After rinsing, I dried with a shirt and added Tea Tree Oil (also helpful for dry scalp) and recommended by a friend (Hey Ercilla). Husband when his hair dried:
I told him, I’ll probably make it a weekly habit for him. He is not pleased. Interestingly, I’ve been using more and more of my products on him. Isn’t it my job to make him be the best that he can be?
You’re he’s welcome.
