When it comes to finding beauty products in your pantry, it isn’t exactly apple cider vinegar that comes to mind, but it should be. While we hear of foods that have magically beauty powers, and are constantly bombarded by coconut oil’s amazing qualities, apple cider vinegar is the health and beauty superstar we swear by.

Oftentimes hair growth is stunted by clogged hair follicles. Apple cider vinegar cleanses the scalp, increases circulation, strengthens the hair follicles and promotes healthy hair growth. Curious what else you can rub on your scalp for hair growth? Or if there are any vitamins and supplements to encourage it from the inside? We’ve got everything you need.
You would be surprised to find out how many hair products are not pH balanced! That means that if a product is too alkaline, the hair is likely to feel coarse, dry or brittle. Apple cider vinegar keeps hair at an optimum pH level, cleansing the hair without stripping it of it’s natural oils.
Because of Apple Cider Vinegar’s pH levels, a quick rinse at the end of your shower helps close the cuticle of the hair, allowing strands to feel softer with more shine.
Sensitive scalps rejoice! The pH balancing qualities of apple cider vinegar mean hair is easier to comb through without tugging on strands and causing breakage..
SPLIT END REMEDY
Another benefit it’s pH balancing powers mean split ends are sealed and moisture is retained; so kiss those heartbreaking haircuts goodbye.
The miracle vinegar has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal properties that kill the yeast that causes dandruff, flaking, or an itchy scalp. If you need more tips for treating dandruff, look no further.
HOW TO USE…
After shampooing your hair, we suggest using apple cider vinegar as a substitute for conditioner. Try mixing two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with two tablespoons of water (try it in a spray bottle!) and a couple drops of essential oil (we love lavender for relaxation, rosemary for hair growth, or tea tree for dandruff). Massage into the scalp, then rinse with cool water. Repeat 2-3 times a week.
Just remember that not all apple cider vinegar is created equal! It’s important to use organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar if possible for the most effective and immediate results.
