FIVE BENEFITS OF APPLE CIDER VINEGAR RINSE + HOW TO MAKE IT



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!

BENEFITS 


  • Cleansing and Clarifying
Using a multitude of products on our hair – like serums, gels, sprays, and masks – leads to product build-up. All this sticky residue can leave the hair looking flat, dull and lifeless. One of the easiest ways to get rid of this accumulation and restore life to your hair is by using apple cider vinegar


  • 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 



  1. Blend one cup of water with two to four tablespoons of vinegar to make your rinse.
  2. 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).
  3. Massage the mixture into your scalp, which will also serve to stimulate circulation and hair growth.
  4. 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.

Hey kinks what's up y'all?.... Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fab day?

Okay so to the post what is a split end?  The end of a hair strand is damaged resulting in the strand separating into two or more fragments.

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.

YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  


YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way)..
