Everyone who has been reading HQ for a while knows that I am a great proponent of apple cider vinegar as a tonic for all lengths of hair. Today’s recipe takes that premise up a notch with an easy to make hair softening conditioner that will leave the driest hair shiny and healthy.
½ cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp wheat germ oil
3 drops of tea tree oil
3 drops of chamomile essential oil
3 drops of rosemary essential oil
Mix all ingredients thoroughly and pour through your hair after shampooing. Work the mixture into your scalp and down to the ends of your hair. Allow it to sit for three to five minutes. Comb through and rinse with first warm water, to rinse off the conditioner, and then cool water to seal the hair cuticle. If you really want to lock in the shine, do a final rinse with another ½ cup of apple cider vinegar and let your hair dry naturally.
This treatment can be done once a month on long hair (shoulder length or longer) or about every six to eight weeks on shorter hair. The conditioner smells delicious and the oils will stimulate circulation and balance sebum production in the scalp. A votre santé ~
