Around the time I was making the research to move to a natural skin-care regimen, and discovering the magic that is Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), I stumbled across a couple of recipes for a conditioner that promised me shiny, bouncy hair and no-dandruff! Imagine that!!! None of that dry, itchy thing I had going on near the end of every week.
NB: Your hair doesn’t end up smelling like vinegar all day. As all volatile liquids, the vinegar smell dissipates as your hair dries.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Distilled (read: boiled) Water
My Personal Recipe:
Mix 1 part ACV to 1 part Distilled Water
- Apply the ACV conditioner after washing the shampoo out of the hair
- Let it sit in the hair for at least 20-30 mins, sometimes I leave it in waaayyy longer
- Wash out/ Rinse
- Style hair as desired
- When I used to use a thicker leave-in conditioner, I would wait a day or two before I applied it, because the ACV rinse does such a wonderful job at it already! You can however, add your preferred conditioner in at this point, as I do now because I use a lighter one.
- I usually make enough for a month or 2, it doesn’t get spoilt at all.
