Hello everyone. I promised I was going tell you all about the coconut water and vinegar rinse in details very soon and here it is….
The first place I found this was on Relaxed Hair Health blog and it was interesting to know that I could mix these two together (coconut water and vinegar) and get loads of benefits for my hair:
Most often we dilute the ACV (apple cider vinegar) solution with water to curb the acidity levels. Recently, idea popped into my mind. “What if I were to use a little coconut water and ACV as my final rinse?” Would there be any benefits? The first thought that came up was how coconut water is loaded with nutrients such as calcium, minerals, B vitamins, and protein. Also, unlike water which has a neutral pH of 7, coconut water was a slightly acid pH of between 4.5 and 5.2. Oh, by the way, our hair, and sebum has a pH level of between 4.5 and 5.5. Coincidence?
I found testimonies online:
Holistic Vanity website: First, its great for clearing out flakes and build up. This is important for those of you with flakiness or dandruff because while you may think you need less cleaning and more moisture, it might be the opposite You need to keep your scalp as clear as possible so that the bacteria from dandruff that feeds on dead skin cells are kept at bay. Secondly, it’s fantastic for softening. Coconut vinegar is packed with minerals from the coconut water or coconut sap it is derived from and contains zinc, iron, manganese, potassium, copper and magnesium. Coconut sap also possesses nine amino acids and these proteins are a wonderful treatment for our hair.
I prepared my mix and stored it in a spritz bottle: I’ve been using it on my new growth………..My hair feels softer than before. After moisturising, I seal up the moisture with coconut oil and it does not itch my scalp…
I used it on my face at night before sleeping and it made my skin so tight and dry: this might work as a make-up seal…….I’m just saying but I’ll be using this mix on my hair cause my hair loves it..
I stored it in the fridge and it’s always cold… you know that cold water closes the cuticle and make the hair smooth.
Conclusion: To fight frizz, cold coconut vinegar mix might help a lot.
You should try it and let me know how it worked for you 🙂© Copyright 2014 Patience Ugomma Ukam, All rights Reserved. Written For: Get your Sizzelle on!
