So, you would have thought that after all the trauma that I went through with Baking Soda that I would have been more cautious with Apple Cider Vinegar. Apparently, I’m not that smart, or maybe I’m still too trusting. I think I used the word ‘moron’ in my last post. That about sums up this experience in a nutshell.
Could the Internet be wrong again! Maybe the Apple Cider Vinegar companies are paying people to write miraculous testimonials about their products on hair! Whatever is the case, here is my experience.
After my hair was back to its normal color-treated condition, meaning I used a bottle and dyed it in my bathroom. I decided that I was just going to try an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse on my hair. The first three applications went surprisingly well. My hair was even shiner than it was before. But, by the fourth wash, I noticed that the ends of my hair were frayed. I started applying a bit of coconut oil directly to the ends on my hair to try and counteract this problem.
By the 6th wash, there was absolutely no improvement. In fact, my ends were so split and frayed that I didn’t think my hair could recover. I actually chopped two inches off the ends of my hair. I have very oily hair and the Apple Cider Vinegar was able to completely wipe out every ounce of natural oil and coconut oil, frying it like I had been walking in a hot desert for hours.
So here comes the big money question! If I don’t use baking soda and I don’t use Apple Cider Vinegar what do I use on my hair if I’m an advocate for the ‘no poo’ method.
I will answer that question in my next post.
Just Say No to Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda for your hair!
