Can Water Only Wash Clean Your Hair?

Here's one of the questions that have come up with the water only wash. Can the water only wash clean your hair? There are several things involved in the water only wash cleaning stages.

First, you scritch that is use your finger pads to lift sebum and dirt.

There's also the position of your head during the rinse. You tilt your hair downwards to allow the flow of water to wash out the dirt as well as make detangling easier.



Another the cleaning step is the acv, Aloe vera juice. You can use aloe vera as a cleanser to remove dirt from your hair. It is said to be a mild cleanser which means it won't deplete the sebum coverage. You have to experiment with how often you use to figure out the best time to use it.

clay treatments or herbal rinses can also be used to clean the hair during the water only wash routine. However, these clay treatment, according to the website, can undo the sebum coverage. Clays like bentonite are known to clarify so I won't be surprised if they strip …

Why You Should Chelate Your Natural Hair

Image
I'm going to talk about the need to chelate your natural hair. Chelating and Clarifying hair, to the best thing of my knowledge, are some things relaxed ladies do very often.  Whereas naturals may not be using a relaxer (some relax their edges), most do use commercial products.  Even using natural products can still cause build up and as a result, a lot of ladies focus on cleaning the hair with a sulfate based shampoo.
What about the build up from the water you use to wash the hair in the first place? Have you ever considered why even after clarifying your hair,  you still feel the strands are coated?



The kind of water we use especially for those who purchase from the tankers and also use water from the polytanks like me can hinder our whole wash day purpose and result.  Most of these waters are hard, meaning the mineral deposit from them will create build up that can only be cleared using a Chelating shampoo.
In addition to this, if you Co wash more often, then,  you'll have an …

3 Easy Ways To Use Apple Cider Vinegar On Natural Hair

Image
Today, I'm going to share 3 easy ways to use apple cider vinegar on natural hair. For most naturals in Ghana, the best known products are usually expensive yet there are very effective ones that are also easily accessible. Apple Cider Vinegar is a hair product you'll always find in my home. Aside haven used it when I relaxed my hair, I do use it on my natural hair too.


***As a final rinse
When I want to be double sure the hair's cuticle is closed, I do a final rinse with ACV diluted in water. Also, when I Co wash, I like to use the vinegar to act as another rinse. Somehow, my hair feels smoother when I do that meaning the cuticles are closed.

****Scalp Cleanser
Though there are divided views about Apple Cider Vinegar as a cleanser, that is like a shampoo, I, have personally seen how effective it is on the scalp. So, even if it can't clean the hair itself, when it comes to cleaning the scalp, this stuff is the truth! For ladies with dandruff, using acv diluted on the scalp …
