I typically do product reviews, but today I am switching it up to tell you about this AWESOME hair hack that I tried so that you can be on your way to healthier and happier hair! A little bit of a backstory on why I tried this hack is because I have not liked my hair for the past 3 months (it feels greasy/gross, it is flat with no volume, it is dry/itchy, it has product buildup from use of hair products/styling products, it lost its shine, and honestly my hair just looked dead 😳😳😲😖 So I did some research on the internet and it turns out that people are using vinegar (an already helpful product as you can mop your floors in it, clean the shower, clean the toilet, get rid of odor, clean the carpet, get stains out, etc.) to detox and balance the pH in their hair. I felt hopeless and had tried various other products so I though why not.
So I got my stuff together for a hot shower that night (I am anemic and my showers will burn your skin off 😂😂😈) and grabbed the Distilled White Vinegar from the kitchen. I got in the shower, wet my hair thouroughly (which actually takes some effort guys as my hair is about midway down my back and pretty thick), then I poured the vinegar all over my hair starting at the scalp (be careful not to get in eyes), after that was done I grabbed the shampoo and added a little vinegar to it, next I scrubbed my hair with the vinegar + shampoo mix (helps to reduce the smell of vinegar and helps get your hair cleaner), I waited for about 5 minutes and my scalp felt really clean and kind of tingly, and then I rinsed it thoroughly. From this point I finished up my shower routine (wash my body, shave, etc.) and then I stepped out of the shower, dried off, and got dressed in my PJs. The next step was to brush my hair (my hair normally has knots and tangles that are painful and I tend to have a lot of shedding when I brush my hair) and noticed that my hair was soft, manageable, and that I had less shedding + no product buildup (this was the results IMMEDIATLY after guys). The next day I got up that morning, brushed my hair after getting ready, and noticed that yet again I was experiencing cleaner + softer hair, no shedding, no product buildup, shinier/fuller hair, and I could brush my hair without wanting to cry due to all the knots/tangles.
Now I want to share with you guys my Instagram pics (@hunnelldaisy if you want to follow me) which documents the night I used the vinegar wash and the next day (AKA day 1 of the experiment).
