Why Is Apple Cider Vinegar such a treat for your hair?
What does it contain..
ACV contains potent antimicrobial agents that can kill bacteria and fungus, a common underlying cause of dandruff and hair loss, a natural helpmate for your hair and scalp.
What does it do..
Commercial products disrupt the natural hair pH that can affect the cuticles of the hair and the condition of the scalp.
ACV has a naturally high acetic acid and pH level close to human hair. If you regularly rinse with this vinegar it will help to bring your scalp and hair back to its ideal acidity.
Again commercial hair products across the range lead to product build-up in your hair. All this sticky residue can leave the hair looking flat, dull and lifeless, especially if they contain Silicon. One of the easiest ways to get rid of this accumulation and restore life to your tired locks is by using ACV.
ACV won’t weigh down the individual strands of hair like commercial products do, e.g. you can enjoy hair with more movement and natural body. You may even find you need less or no heating and styling products after a vinegar rinse, reducing further damage to your hair. A fantastic natural detangler ACV can replace conditioners.
The natural acidity of ACV helps to smoothen down the cuticle – encouraging knots and tangles to slip out and allowing a brush to glide through more easily.
ACV stimulates better blood circulation to the hair follicles, vital to encourage hair growth and preventing hair loss. Better blood circulation results in essential nutrients feeding hair follicle cells, strengthening the roots and promoting growth.
How to use is..
Simply dilute the 1 cup of ACV per 500ml water, pfill a spray bottle and spray through your hair after washing with a solid shampoo. Leave 1 minute, then rinse. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil if you want a nice smell. There is no lingering vinegar smell in your hair after rinsing, but your hair will thank you with its healthy shiny state!
