In short, apply watered down apple cider vinegar to your head. This may not be news for everyone. I had certainly heard of it, but I never tried it before. UNTIL.
So I had recently started using a new shampoo which was definitely not agreeing with me. I was like pigpen with a cloud of dander poofing around me. Maybe it was too harsh or I was allergic to an ingredient, but my scalp was constantly itchy and flaky. I don’t know why I kept using it.
Then, this weekend, when I went to get a haircut, the lady was so concerned with the health of my hair, I realized, I gotta get a new shampoo. She told me to apply watered down apple cider vinegar to my scalp and leave it for 15 minutes before shampooing. I did it as soon as I got home, and my hair is completely soft and my scalp mostly itch and dander free. I also got a new shampoo. So maybe it was the new shampoo rather than the vinegar. I don’t know. But the watered down vinegar felt soothing to my scalp when I poured it over my head. I don’t think I’d do this every time I shampoo, but certainly for periodic maintenance. I turned my straw hair into instant soft silky hair without using any other conditioner or product. I’m convinced.
