I love using organic hair products, but due to living in a hard water area, sometimes they don’t work as well as I’d like. As a result, every few months I’m left with a horrid buildup on my hair, that makes my locks a tangled, dull mess!
So, what to do? I’ve been experimenting at home and found bentonite clay is pretty super at clarifying your hair and combined with apple cider vinegar is works some serious magic. This recipe was inspired by Wellness Mama who is a total goddess of DIY beauty. It works to cleanse your hair, leaving a luscious finish and a brilliant shine.
1 tbsp Organic apple cider vinegar
1 lime fresher addition
1 tbsp bentonite clay*
*Find this super clay on eBay, health food stores and other online retailers
Mix all the ingredients together, making sure there’s no clumps and apply to freshly brushed, dry hair. Make sure it’s covering all the hair. Leave on for 5 minutes then rinse with cool water OR apple cider vinegar rinse. I also like to spray a few drops of lavender oil/ water mix through my hair after, just to banish any egg/ vinegar lingering smells. Though in general it’s a very fresh feeling recipe.
