Using Vinegar for Healthy Locks

Like the Seasons… … … … … We Change

Each of us is having a personal experience with our Locks. At times it’s exasperating, let alone, scary. 😦   For those of you struggling to handle your hair loss, I urge you not to give up. Use this as a time of beauty exploration. Treat yourself to a new look. Experiment. Use a new shampoo, or new hair gel, or new hair comb :).  Change is good!  We are the seasons of the universe.  That’s a beautiful thing.

How many of you knew that Vinegar can be used to help you with various hair issues?  Do you know that Vinegar has been used to treat hair loss? Below are some of the things I learned about Vinegar use for your hair and what it can do:

  • Restore shine
  • Clean and improve scalp health
  • Reduce dandruff

Check out for yourself what I found at other websites, and what they had to say about Vinegar. Just click on the link at the end of the summary.

Mix up other natural beauty products with vinegar for healthy hair. Use 1 ounce of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 egg for your next shampoo. Put the ingredients in the blender and then use as a shampoo. Rinse it with a complimentary mixture made from herbs and vinegar. Use 1/4 cup fresh lavender (or other herb you favor) with a quart of boiling water poured over it. When the mixture cools, strain out the lavender and add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Use a cup as a final rinse. Store it in the refrigerator in a closed container.via Is Vinegar Good for Your Hair? | eHow.com.

Vinegar for Hair

Most naturalistas are well versed in the benefits of ACV on natural hair, but if you’re not – allow me to fill you in. Vinegar is a great clarifier, and it makes for clean, shiny hair. This simple recipe from Natural Review lets you know what to do, and this vintage BGLH post breaks down exactly why. I usually just rinse my hair at the end with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (Braggs is a popular brand for that), and also using vinegar on my scalp once a month has helped me deal with flakes in the past.via The Beauty Benefits of Vinegar for Hair and Skin | Afrobella.

HairBlues  Suggestion:

If you don’t want to mix up a potion all on your own, below is a link to an already prepared product I used. The directions were easy to follow. It left my scalp feeling refreshed, and my hair squeaky clean.  The instructions on the bottle recommend that you use it twice a month.  If you have concerns that your hair will smell like vinegar after giving yourself a treatment,  use a nice smelling conditioner of your choice. 🙂

Our organic apple cider vinegar rinse slows hair loss and promotes new growth by dissolving excess DHT, unblocking hair follicles and stimulating scalp circulation. The acids and enzymes in this treatment may kill the pathogens associated with Alopecia hair loss. via Natural Herbal Hair Rinse for Hair Loss Remedy,Vinegar Hair Loss.

I am truly mystified about how it came to be that men who are bald are considered attractive, powerful, virile, etc.   I wondered as I was about to post this week’s suggestions on caring for heads that are bald, whether bald women are considered to be  attractive by the same population who think bald men are attractive.

When I see women who have decided to ‘Un-Lock’  their look by being bald, what comes across to me is that beauty comes in various styles.

This post is for those women who have decided to ‘Un-Lock your look’ by simply going bald & beautiful with shaved heads. I wanted to share with you some of the tips I found that may help you when caring for your ‘Lock-less‘  look.  Make sure to click the link at the end to get a full description on bald head care.

Bald Head Care Tips

Protecting Your Scalp

Your scalp is a part of your skin, but just many times more sensitive. Why? If you are shaving your head for the first time, then it’s the first time your scalp will have to face with pollutants and UV rays that your hair used to block off. It will also dry and burn faster compare to your face because your scalp is not used to our harsh environments. So the best way is to moisturize it.

Use a moisturizer daily that can help protect your shaved head from dryness. There is no specific moisturizer but get one that does not contain alcohol. You can use the same moisturizer that you use for your face.

Block It

One of the most harmful elements to your scalp is UV rays exposure, which can damage your delicate scalp. Considering that your scalp will be the most exposed part to UV rays, getting a good sunscreen is essential.

I hope this is helpful.  See you at the next Post 🙂
