If you use chemicals every day or few times per week for the hair, this will harm the hair. Even masks cannot reverse the whole damage, so the follicle stays damaged and dry.
Soaps and shampoos remove the natural oils of hair and skin and leave the scalp dry. Bad weather and blow drying also damage the hair.
In search of the perfect item for the hair, we spend fortunes and forget that sometimes the solution is in the kitchen.
The use of ACV for the body tracks down to Roman times and 19th century too as vinegar de toilette. They mixed it with essential plant oils for better result.
To treat some things, you have to understand them. The cuticle or outer hair layer is over the hair shaft and keeps the hair safe. This is made from more layers of long scales along the hair. The cuticle state decides if you have a good or bad hair day.
If the cuticle is in good unbroken shape the hair looks smooth. The light reflects of it and the layers are knit together. If the layers are open and not knitted, the hair is coarse, with no shine, no life and dull dry.
ACV removes gunk of the hair and residue from buildups. Also it closes cuticles and makes the hair shiny again to leave it smooth soft in the end.
