Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse
Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse:
The pH of your hair is very important. An unbalanced hair and scalp can cause irritation, dryness, dullness. Your hair and scalp is naturally around pH of 5.5.
Since water is a neutral pH and most shampoos are alkaline, simply taking a shower changes the pH of your hair. So the idea is that when you finish with an apple cider vinegar it brings the pH back down and seals the cuticle shut, leading to shiny, soft strands.
By infusing apple cider vinegar with dried flowers or herbs and adding essential oils you get all the benefits of apple cider vinegar and the healing properties of the botanicals and essential oils - and it smells so good.
The type of botanicals and essential oils you choose will depend on whether you have dark or light hair. Here is an easy guide:
Light Hair: Chamomile, Calendula, Lemon, Chamomile
Dark Hair: Lavender, Rose, Sage, Violets
Scalp Health: Rosemary, Catnip, Mint, Nettle, Thyme, Basil
- Handful of dried botanicals of choice
- 200ml apple cider vinegar
- 12 drops Essential Oils
- Add your botanicals to the apple cider vinegar. Leave to infuse for three weeks, ensuring they are covered. Stir or shake every so often.
- Once infused strain out the botanicals and pour the infused apple cider vinegar into a spray bottle. (save the rest, storing in a dark cupboard for up to a year)
- Add your essential oils to the spray bottle
