Hair-detox !! In order to achieve perfect looks we often put our hairs under lot of stress.Be it using a heat protect-ant for straightening or holding sprays for making a high bun ,our hairs end up piling up a lot of products which on long run degrades hair quality and texture. Once I visited a very reputed salon for hair cut , the salon guy scraped my hair with a scissor and showed a white powdery buildup and said “Mam , nothing will work on your hair until unless you remove the buildup”
Effects of hair buildup in long run :
- Hair will start looking dull and flat.
- Lose its shine.
- Most of the hair products stop working on hair (happened with me 🙁 )
- And you start running after costly salon treatments for sake of your hairs. 😛
Actually what happens , when product buildup on hair it seals the hair surface hence nothing seems to work on it and hair starts getting weak and unhealthy. It may even result in hair loss. There are lots of reason to have product buildup like silicones in hair product , not washing hair products (conditioner /masks) thoroughly from hair and many more.
There are lots of ways to detox your hair.Today I will be sharing one of the hair-detox therapy which I do frequently and works great for me.Lets quickly see the recipe.
what we need ?
- your favourite shampoo
- baking soda
- apple cider vinegar
Yess!! just three little musketeers. 😀 😀
How to do it ?
Wet your hairs thoroughly , take required quantity of shampoo and one and half tsp of baking soda (that is how much I use for my waist length hair) . Dilute the shampoo and mix baking soda in it. Massage this mixture gently on scalp and length of hair. Let it sit for at least 10 to 15 minutes and wash with plain luke warm water.
Baking Soda is great for removing product buildup.
After wards take 2 parts apple cider vinegar and 8 parts water.Rinse your hair slowly with this mix. Apple cider vinegar is magic potion when it comes to hair and skin and of course health.Let your hair dry naturally.
I recommend not to use any hair serum or leave-on cream after hair-detox. Let your hairs dry naturally and let them breath for a day 🙂 believe me your hairs will thank you for this.You can do this in a interval of 10-15 days or even once a month will be great !!
Do give it a try and pleeeease lemme know the results. take care bye bye.
