Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is a superfood for your body, inside and out! There really are so many uses. We drink ACV in Good Girl Moonshine (GGMS) coined in the Trim Healthy Mama books on the regular! Check out our recipe for easy GGMS concentrate here! But here we will discuss how we use ACV to nourish our hair!
1. Mix 2 tablespoons ACV with 2 cups of water and store in a squeeze bottle. (An old water bottle or ketchup bottle works!) and pop that baby in your shower. After shampooing. Use this as a final rinse or conditioner to your hair. The acidity of the ACV actually helps to balance the PH of your hair. You can add a couple drops of essential oil for scent. After leaving it sit for a few minutes, rinse. Now for the hard part, I find it best to wait for my hair to dry before brushing it. Try and resist. The drying process seems to make my hair softer and easier to brush. Trust me this works as a conditioner that will not fill your body with chemicals or weigh down your volume!
2. Need something even more nourishing? Replace the 2 cups water in that recipe for 2 cups of aloe vera gel. Dispense like regular conditioner. Let sit. Rinse. Again. Wait to brush it until it’s dry! It works! You can also mix some essential oil here, I like citrus because I feel it balances the ACV out. Aloe is so nourishing. And really adds some shine to your hair with this recipe.
