ACV hair rinse

EVERYDAY HAPPINESS

It’s Monday and time to look back at the past week which consisted of a lot of homeworks and exam preparation, but also time to relax and drink lots of tea and matcha latte’s!

Last week I wrote a blog post about Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse to make the transition period from conventional shampoo to shampoo bar easier – and I’m still loving how soft my hair gets after I use it in the shower!

Speaking of Apple Cider Vinegar, I’ve also tried to make my own ACV toner for my face which I’m currently using every evening and I really like it so far – update will come later!

I’ve started to look more into Bullet Journals and writing down and tracking lots of things, if you have a good bullet journal ‘theme’, then please share it with me!

This is how I’ve spend most of my days the past week – cozy socks and matcha latte and reading homeworks!

I visited LØS market to stuck up on a few things, and don’t “zero waste” grocery shopping just look amazing? I’m completely in love with it!

I’ve also been eating hella-healthy the past week, after having been so inspired by the book WomanCode which I’m currently reading. I’m feeling amazing after having followed some of the flo-living guidelines in the book (fx keeping your blood sugar stable by eating regularly), and I’ve been so inspired that my lunch and dinner have looked like the above plate for most of the past few days!

How was your past week? And are you up to anything great for this week?

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR HAIR RINSE

If you’ve read my blog post about transitioning to using a shampoo bar instead of a conventional shampoo, then you know that my hair felt so weird after the first time I tried it. After that first time I did some research on how to make the transition period easier, which resulted in that blog post. And one of the tips that I found was to use an Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) hair rinse after you’ve used your shampoo bar, as kind of a ‘conditioner’ for your hair. And, oh my, it helps! My hair doesn’t feel dry after using the shampoo bar any longer as long as I finish off with an Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse.

I just take around 1/3 cup of organic Apple Cider Vinegar (I use this one*) and then fill the rest of the cup up with water. Then I pour this over my hair after I’ve finished using my shampoo bar and rinsed that out. I let it sit for about 3 minutes and then wash it out.

My hair is still adjusting to the shampoo bar, but this method seriously helps a lot – and, I’ve also found that there are quiet a few benefits to using an Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse!

Benefits of using Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse:

– it functions as a natural detangler
– it is antibacterial and great for your scalp
– it adds shine to your hair
– it stimulates hair growth and prevent hair loss
– it prevents split ends
