Listen up ladies! For the past few years I have been searching for the best products to help my hair grow faster while keeping it strong and healthy, and keen my skin blemish-free. I feel like I’ve tried everything! It can get exhausting, plus it’s expensive trying new products all the time – and disappointing when it doesn’t make much of a difference!
That’s why I stopped dead in my tracks when I found out that I could use something from my kitchen for better results for my hair and my skin!
My secret? Apple Cider Vinegar! Yep, I know, I’m obsessed. I mean, you saw my last post where I discussed my morning routine. I may have raved a little about doing a shot of Apple Cider Vinegar every morning. Seriously. Just do it.
So! This is what I do.
Twice a week I grab a jar. Measure out 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 cup of water. Shake up the jar! Leave it on your bathroom sink for ease of access. Easy enough, right?! It takes 2 minutes. Maybe less.
Then! Grab a cotton ball and dip it into the apple-vinegar solution and clean your face! After a few minutes, wash it off with a flannel or in the shower. Too easy! Sometimes I do this every day, sometimes every second day, depending on how much makeup I’ve been wearing, time of month, ya get me?
Then! When I wash my hair (twice a week), I take my jar of solution into the shower. I wash my hair and after I’ve conditioned it, I run the solution through my hair. Be careful not to get it in your eyes! After a couple minutes, I rinse it out! Voila!
Now that you’re hooked on how easy this sounds, you’re probably wondering why you should do it. Well, the Apple Cider Vinegar works as a natural toner that returns the skin to a natural pH level – in comparison to soap which can put it way out of its natural pH level.
And for your hair? Once again, it returns your scalp to the preferable pH level of around 5. It also works as an antibacterial, and is said to aid hair growth.
I know a lot of people are sceptical about home-made products, but I would rather put something natural on my skin than all the chemicals that are found in expensive little bottles. I tried it, and have seen huge improvements in my husband’s skin and my skin… and my hair is finally growing!
Don’t knock it till you try it!
My advice for buying apple cider vinegar is to get organic with the ‘mother’. This is a great brand I love that is available at Coles and Woolworths.
