A personal goal of mine was to let my hair grow out long. If I want long hair I wanted it to be healthy and thick. Since my hair is sooo thick build up accumulates on my scalp. When your folicles are clogged, it is harder for the hair to grow, and grow healthy. After doing some research, I found out that apple cider vinegar is a great and inexpensive hair treatment that de clogs the follicles. Two saturdays ago my mother and I went to a natural store, in search for some.
Here is the recipe:
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar- $5.00
1/2 cup of water
After washing your hair, mix ACV. Pour it on your head and massage into the hair and scalp with your fingers. Rinse with warm water to remove. 1 to 2 times a week.
ACV really stinks! I mean really! So I would advise for you to just let it air dry before braiding it. You don't necessarily need to put 1/2 vinegar 1/2 water it just has to have that same ratio. After a month of detoxing every Saturday, I will then do it just once a month.
