Our Hair and Scalp

We don't need a lot of products to maintain healthy hair. If you have just decided to embrace your natural tresses than co-washing (conditioner washes) may be new to you. Simply it means you wash your hair with a conditioner, concentrating on the scalp. This helps us maintain as much moisture as possible when cleansing our hair. My favourite conditioner right now is Nature's Gate Herbal Conditioning Conditioner and Herbal Essences (old packaging).
I also use an ACV rinse with Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar to bring the ph-balance back to normal which promotes healthy scalp. I usually mix 8 oz of half water and half apple cider vinegar in an applicator bottle. As I pour the ACV mixture over my head I message it into my scalp for a few minutes than rinse. Cleansing our hair and scalp gently is so important, our hair loves water and gentle loving care. If you haven't already tried co-washing and an ACV rinse as a natural its your duty to indulge in pampering your hair and scalp.

I love co-washing! I'm not natural yet but I'm transitioning and co-washing is def. needed in my regimen. I haven't tried the ACV rinse yet, I want to, but I hear that it's a light rinse.

Dasia- Yes they both are great! The ACV you may have try out the ratios of water to vinegar but once you got that it will give you soft fluffy hair:)

i have been natural for all of my life, but it's only until recently that i really started to REALLY appreciate my hair (after 22 years... yikes)

everywhere i go, everyone talks about co-washing and i never knew what it was.. now thank you very much for your post here. i was in my kitchen and picked up the same bottle of apple cider vinegar today too. so, this weekend, i think im going to try and start making this my regular routine!!!

now if someone could explain what EVOO (?) is, i'll be very intrigued!!
