If you're anything like me, you will give just about anything a try to prevent having those big, bulky plastic bottles in your bathroom.
If you're planning on improving your home and becoming more sustainable, the bathroom is a great place to start!
There are such easy, sustainable, plastic free swaps for your bathroom including soaps bars, shampoo bars, conditioner bars, safety razors and natural deodorants. Recently I have started using Apple Cider Vinegar as a rinse to condition my hair, and it's magic! To be honest, I was a little bit sceptical about giving this a go because I thought I'd reek of vinegar, but the smell dissipates and you are left with some silky hair.
My ACV Conditioner recipe below also uses a combination of beneficial essential oils, to not only promote a healthy scalp and hair, they also help to mask the smell of the Vinegar to make it more pleasant for you to use.
I always recommend using organic ingredients, especially when it comes to essential oils. This means that the ingredients you are using are the purest and most beneficial for you.
Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner
You will need:
1x Glass Spray Bottle
I get all of my bottles and jars from a company called Arthur Holmes
Depending on the size of your bottle that you decide to use, fill 90% of the bottle volume half with Apple Cider Vinegar, half with water (tap water is totally fine)
Then Add (Note: I use a ___ mL bottle, so scale your recipe to the size of your bottle):
10 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
10 Drops Cedarwood Essential Oil
5 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil
Add all of the ingredients together into your spray bottle, and invert to combine the liquids.
After shampooing, spray your hair well with the ACV mixture.
Massage into your scalp and leave it to sit for a few minutes before rinsing out.
I also spray it onto my wet hair after I shower. It works perfectly as a detangling spray, and makes your hair super silky.
