We are all familiar with apple cider vinegar. We often use it as s dip for our favourite food or as a dressing for our favourite salad. We are all familiar with the health benefits of apple cider vinegar. It is a healthier option for people who are trying to lose weight and lower their cholesterol. But apple cider vinegar for curly hair? This is the first time I heard this and clearly, I needed to make some research. And surprisingly, here’s what I found out about the benefits and wonders of apple cider vinegar for curly hair.
Before we go into the wonderful benefits of apple cider vinegar for curly hair, let me introduce to you this humble yet powerful condiment in our pantry. Apple cider vinegar also known as ACV is a vinegar made from fermented apple juice. It is usually used for cooking as salad dressing, dip and marinating. The health benefits of apple cider vinegar include burning fats for weight loss, lowering cholesterol, decreasing blood sugar levels and increasing insulin sensitivity. You can now add promoting healthier and bouncier curls to the long list of benefits that we can get from apple cider vinegar. Here is a breakdown of the many benefits that our curly hair can get from this humble item in our pantry.
Apple cider vinegar rinse is the most common way to include this ingredient in your curly hair care routine. You can create this hair rinse using the most basic ingredients in your pantry and the process is super simple. No rocket science is needed.
Those with high porosity hair can greatly benefit from this DIY hair rinse. It works by closing down and sealing the hair cuticle. Use this hair rinse once a week. But if you have low porosity hair, you might need to step on the breaks. Apple cider vinegar might be too strong for your hair so you may need to dilute it with more water. Also, use it once every two weeks or twice a month.
What you need:
How to use
Tip: You can add your favorite essential oil like rosemary oil or lavender oil to your mixture for added benefit.
Tips: Use cold water when rinsing off the apple cider vinegar from your hair. Cold water will help in sealing the hair shaft to make it look shinier.

Apple cider vinegar is a superstar when it comes to health benefits. And now we can add healthier hair and scalp to that list. But ACV is not for everyone. ACV contains acid that may cause irritation to the skin. Before using ACV as part of your hair care routine, do a spot test to know if this product is compatible with your skin and hair type. Why don’t you try it out and see for yourself if ACV is for you and your curls?
