Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse
Do you have any idea about how well we are damaging our hair with our own hands, by using chemically loaded products from shampoo to serums and hair sprays. These may give you temporary gorgeous looking hair for a day or two? But a long term usage of these products will cause chemical buildup on your scalp that ultimately produces more oil and thus attracts more dust and grim which causes more hair fall.
This is where apple cider vinegar will act as an rescuer.It cleans away scalp and hair properly where your shampoo has failed to do so. Controls the sebaceous glands and limits the oil production on your scalp. Thus promotes healthy hair and radiates it natural shine.
How to use Apple cider vinegar as a Hair Rinse?
