My hair has been lacking life because of Oklahoma, the water there is very hard and full of minerals, it was really harsh on my hair. I did a lot of apple cider vinegar rinses while I was staying there to help strip the minerals out of my hair. It helped a bit but my hair hasn’t been the same since before I stepped foot in that state.
I left Oklahoma about two weeks and my hair is still looking limp and dull. This morning I decided to do a vinegar rinse because they always seem to freshen up my hair. I typically mix apple cider vinegar and water and pour it over my hair after shampooing and conditioning. Today I felt like switching things up and experimenting. I added some mint tea to the mix to make the rinse a little more refreshing and smell better.
I could notice the difference in my hair as soon as I stepped out of the shower. Once my hair dried it had volume again, looked shiny and felt really smooth. 🙂
You can do this rinse about once a week depending on how your hair reacts to the apple cider vinegar. I recommend doing vinegar rinses at least once or twice a month.
2 mint tea bags
1/2 cup boiling water
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
Steep the tea in boiling water for about 3-4 minutes. Remove the tea bags and let cool. Stir in the vinegar and pour the mixture into a bottle, (I use one I picked up from Sally Beauty Supply).
After you shampoo, condition and rinse your hair, pour the mint rinse into hair and scalp. Massage in and style as usual without rinsing.
