Did you know that one of the main reasons we have bad hair days is due to unbalanced pH levels on our hair and scalp?
Our hair has a healthy pH level when it is between 4.5-5.5 Many of our hair care products have a pH level of 8. This is much more alkaline than our scalp and strips the hair of its natural acid mantle. The acid mantle helps the tiny overlapping scales on the outer layer of the hair shaft to lie flat. When the pH levels on our hair and scalp are balanced our hair has a smooth appearance and our scalp is moisturized.
This Hair Mask will leave your hair silky and conditioned! Apple cider vinegar has a pH of 3. When it is properly diluted it helps to balance the pH of your hair! (Make sure you are using unpasteurized ACV from the mother.)
