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

HOW YOU CAN USE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

I dag tænkte jeg at jeg ville snakke lidt om æblecidereddike. Jeg er mega fan af naturlige ting som man har i køkkenet, som man kan bruge til sig selv og sin krop også. Og der er altså mange ting at finde i ens køkken, som også kan bruges til at gøre noget godt for ens udseende med. Du kan bruge banan, avokado, havregryn, honning i ansigtsmasker. Bruge agurker på øjnene, grøn te som skintonic, sukker eller salt til body scrubs og meget meget mere. Men i dag, skal det altså handle om æblecidereddike.

Det kan du bruge æblecidereddike til:
– du kan bruge det som en skintonic, efter at du har renset dit ansigt
– du kan bruge det til rens af håret (brug 1/2 spiseskefuld æblecidereddike i et glas vand og skyl håret med det når du er i bad)
– hvis du indtager det, så siges det, at det både kan hjælpe med at stabilisere dit blodsukker, sænke dit kolesterol og at det kan være beskyttende overfor kræft (læs selv mere her)
– du kan bruge det som mundskyl (bland 2 spsk æblecidereddike med 1/4 kop vand, og gurgle det rundt i munden i 15-20 sekunder)
– det kan hjælpe på fordøjelsen, tag en spiseskefuld eller to i et glas vand 1-2 gange om dagen
– rengøring af hjemmet (brug 1 del æblecidereddike til 9 dele vand, og brug dette til rengøring af hjemmet)

Gør du brug af æblecidereddike? Og har du andre gode idéer til hvordan det kan bruges?


Today I wanted to talk a bit about apple cider vinegar. I’m a huge fan of natural things which you have in your kitchen, which you can also use for yourself and your body. And there are so many good things to fin din your kitchen, which can also do good for your overall look. You can use a banana, avocado, oats and honey for face masks. You can use a cucumber for your eyes, green tea as a skintonic, sugar or salt for body scrubs and much more. But today, I wanted to talk about apple cider vinegar.

What you can use apple cider vinegar for:
– you can use it as a skintonic, after you’ve cleansed your face (1 part apple cider vinegar, 2 parts water)
– you can use it as a hair rinse (1/2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water and rinse your hair with it while you shower)
– if you take it internally, it is said to be able to help stabilize your blood sugar, lower your cholesterol and protect against cancer (read more about it here)
– you can use it as a mouth wash (2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar with 1/4 cup of water, swish it around in your mouth for 15-20 seconds)
– it can help your digestion, take one to two tbsp in a glass 1-2 times a day
– cleaning your home (use 1 part apple cider vinegar with 9 parts of water, and use it for cleaning your home)

Are you using apple cider vinegar? And do you have other ideas for how to use it?
