Hair is on the mildly acidic side of the pH scale and has an ideal pH of 4.5 to 5.5, which is close to that of an apple cider vinegar rinse (pH 2.9). Many of the hair care products on the market today, such as soap-based shampoos, bleaches, hair colors, and permanents are strongly alkaline. Rinsing with apple cider vinegar will help balance the pH of your hair and remove the buildup that can result from the use of these styling products and inexpensive shampoos.
- 1 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tsp. organic lemon juice.
- 3 cups water
Mix apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and water together thoroughly. Hang hair over bath and slowly pour over head massaging as you go along. Close eyes, this will sting if it gets into your eyes.
