Coconut vinegar clarifies the scalp so well that it will leave your hair feeling much cleaner than most shampoos, particularly towards the roots and follicles. Simply apply about a cup and a half into dry hair and massage into the scalp. Then, as you would with any conditioner, work any excess on your hands into your hair and down the ends. Ensure that while doing so you do not allow any vinegar to seep into the eyes (while it is all-natural product and not dangerous, it is still not a pleasant experience to get vinegar in your eyes!) Once applied, allow the vinegar to sit for at least 3 minutes while you scrub your body, shave etc. Finally, rinse (as opposed to shampooing) it out of your hair using warm (or even better, cold) water.
You’re done! Do this at least 2 times per week and your hair will feel amazing and look incredibly healthy! Incorporating coconut vinegar into your regular hair care regime is also important for clearing out flakes and build up. While this may seem counter-intuitive (you may think removing moisture is not ideal for those who suffer flakiness or dandruff), keeping your scalp clear actually keeps the bacteria from dandruff that feeds on dead skin cells at bay.
Coconut Vinegar will also soften your hair, as it is packed with minerals from the coconut sap it is derived from, and contains manganese, zinc, iron, potassium, copper and magnesium. Coconut sap also contains over 16 amino acids (including all nine essential amino acids), proteins that are essential for effective hair treatment.
