How cool is this?! You can now make your very own clarifying rinse! Vinegar has been long known as a home remedy for all kinds of things. Well, today I'm giving you the recipe for making your own clarifying hair rinse to free your beautiful locks from any and all gunk and build-up that may be keeping your moisturizers from penetrating and offering the best benefit.
And as a former hair stylist, I know first-hand how annoying build-up on the hair can be. I typically use a clarifying rinse or shampoo every two weeks. The hair tends to get overly dry when you clarify too often. Just be absolutely certain you follow your rinse or shampoo with a moisturizer to replenish all that the rinse has stripped away. You'll feel like you've got a new head of hair!
Now let's get to it!!
1. Dilute your Oil/Vinegar mix. Use 1 tablespoon of the Oil/Vinegar and mix with 2 cups of water.
2. Shampoo as usual.
3. Pour rinse on hair, saturating it. Use less for short hair, more for long hair.
4. OPTIONAL: Rinse with water.
5. Condition as usual.
Again, clarifying the hair is a wonderful way of stripping any residue or product build-up from your hair and scalp. It is not recommended that you rinse more than twice a week as your hair may become very dry. My suggestion is to try clarifying every two weeks. If the hair becomes dry, then rinse less often. If you have more build-up still, clarify more often, but still not more than twice a week.
Enjoy your beautifully clean tresses!!!
