So before the world decided to shut down, I had already been putting off a long-over due trip to the hair salon. I admit, I'm a bit fast and lose when it comes to hair-care. I have done absolutely everything with and to my hair over the years and have never been afraid to experiment with bleach, styling products and even cutting my own hair. Suffice it to say, all that experimentation can sometimes leave my mane looking dull and in need of some TLC. I regret to inform you that my next DIY will not help you if you decided to give yourself bangs during quarantine or if you tried to attempt the magic your barber usually pulls off yourself - there is only one cure for that, and its time.
Daily product usage can leave your hair looking flat, greasy and dull. Shampoos, hairsprays, dry shampoo and pomade can all build up on your scalp and hair follicles, even with regular washing, causing some lack luster locks.
If you're looking for a quick, cheap and easy way to revive your hair, look no further than the kitchen. Vinegar is all you need!
A lot of sources recommend Apple Cider Vinegar but tbh, I've had successful results with plain ol' white vinegar as well. Now hear me out - Vinegar has all kinds of benefits for hair-care!
- Its is a great way to clarify your hair and scalp, removing all the aforementioned build up of product. It'll leave you feeling squeaky clean.
- It prevents fungal and bacteria growth and keeps the hair and scalp healthy. Dandruff sufferers pay attention.
- Add weightless shine to fine hair. (Hey, Hi, Hello - this is my category!)
- Helps balance the pH level of your scalp.
How to use it: After shampooing, add about 1 cup of vinegar to 4 cups of warm water, avoid your eyes and rinse. Its not a very complicated process and you can use this rinse once a week or once a month, depending on your hair and the results are amazing!
