Our hair’s pH varies from acidic 3.5 to neutral 5.5, which means that our alkaline #hair care products tend to throw it off balance. Vinegar, on the other hand, helps hair restore its optimal pH value.
It seals the cuticles, making each strand shinier, stronger, and less prone to breakage, plus it removes product buildup that literally suffocates the scalp and slows down normal hair growth.
So, in order to help your hair really give its 100% in terms of both growth and quality, vinegar makes an excellent treatment.
mix 1 part of vinegar and 2 parts of water and use this mixture as a final rinse.
Recipe: Mix 1 part vinegar (apple cider vinegar is the hair care favorite, since it leaves less of an odor; white vinegar works just fine; and wine-based vinegar is best for dry hair) with 2 parts water. To minimize odor, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Use as a final rinse after you shampoo.
How Often: Begin by rinsing with the vinegar treatment 1-2 times a week; over time, you’ll be able to use it 1-2 times a month while maintaining ample shine, health, and growth
Egg Yolk and Olive Oil Mask
Rich in proteins, vitamins, and super-nurturing fatty acids, egg yolks won’t only make your hair softer, shinier, and healthier, they help you to grow it long as well.
Coconut oil and Avocado
Coconut oil and avocado make a great hair treatment for several reasons.
The mixture adds luster to your hair if it’s dry, it gets rid of flaking and dandruff, and it keeps your hair safe from the sun, which can be just as damaging to your hair as it is to your #skin.
Recipe: Massage one tablespoon of it into your hair from the roots to the tips. While it sets in, mash up an avocado, by hand or using the food processor; as with the banana, you want to end up with a smooth paste. Once it reaches the right consistency, massage the avocado into just the tips of your hair. Let the mixture set for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with cool water and shampoo as usual. Again, some users report that it’s difficult to rinse out the avocado, but if you make sure the paste is very smooth, that helps – and don’t forget to apply it to just the tips of your hair!
How Often: Try this treatment once a week for maximum results.
