Hey kinks what's up y'all Happy Tuesday and welcome back to tegskinkytu!
So I Only Just jumped on the band wagon of using Apple Cider Vinegar to rinse my hair and the benefits have been tremendous! I am one of those people that suffer from tender itchy painful scalp and this rinse has been working wonders on my hair, so sit back relax and learn about why apple cider vinegar is good for your hair and how to make the rinse!
- Cleansing and Clarifying
- Reduce Frizz
Frizzy hair is caused by lifted cuticles on the hair. Smooth down the cuticles with apple cider vinegar and you’ll enjoy an overall smooth, frizz-free mane.
- Reduce Porosity of the Hair
Normal hair allows necessary amounts of moisture to penetrate the outer cuticle, while porous hair absorbs liquid quickly…but loses it just as quickly. While you can’t change the porosity of your hair, you can manage it by using an apple cider vinegar rinse to flatten the cuticle and minimize gaps. In order to ensure the new hair that grows out doesn’t suffer the same harm
- Prevent Split Ends & Breakage
By using an apple cider vinegar rinse regularly, you’ll be naturally removing tangles from your hair, closing the cuticles, improving porosity and encouraging stronger strands – all of which lead to a reduction in split ends and breakage.
- Antibacterial and Antifungal Properties
The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar is a potent antimicrobial which can kill bacteria and fungus, common underlying causes of dandruff and hair loss, making it a fantastic natural cure. An ACV rinse is also a good preventative regimen – by maintaining the natural pH of your scalp, you’ll be creating a hostile environment for the fungus and bacteria that cause these issues
HOW TO MAKE IT
- Blend one cup of water with two to four tablespoons of vinegar to make your rinse.
- After you have shampooed and thoroughly rinsed your hair, slowly pour the mixture over your entire scalp, allowing it to run down the length of your hair (being careful not to get it in your eyes).
- Massage the mixture into your scalp, which will also serve to stimulate circulation and hair growth.
- After one to two minutes, rinse out the vinegar.
If you have dry hair, start out with two tablespoons of vinegar per cup of water. If you have oily hair or dandruff, three or four spoons will probably be required. You can adjust this blend over time to see what works best for your hair.
