We’ve all experimented with DIY hair treatments that promise to give us luscious locks. Whether it’s mayonnaise masks, green tea soaks, hot oils, eggs, or oatmeal, we’ve tried it all in an attempt to get the thick, luscious hair most of us have only dreamed of. Luckily, advancements in the beauty industry means we don’t need to throw the kitchen sink at our heads anymore. New products formulated from powerful botanicals and nourishing oils are available, and best of all, some of them actually work!
In the past, hair products often contained chemicals that made your hair look healthy but were actually damaging (like Propylene glycol (PG), which helps your hair appear shiny but can cause scalp irritation). Thankfully, due to major advancements in the beauty industry, cosmetic companies are now using more nature-based ingredients that are gentler and more effective. And apple cider vinegar is among the most effective in this new trend. We’ve just launched our brand new Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo & Conditioner set that is chock- full of powerful yet gentle ingredients that will give you the hair of your dreams while nourishing and protecting every precious strand. Here’s everything you need to know about Pure Biology’s new nature-based Shampoo & Conditioner!
Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo & Conditioner Set Ingredients Highlight
Apple Cider Vinegar
Is there anything Apple Cider vinegar can’t do? It’s great for digestion, weight loss and also for your hair and skin. This miracle hair and skin ingredient can revive your lifeless locks and give your hair shine and volume. Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp, and Apple Cider Vinegar contains pH balancing and anti-fungal properties, which clear away buildup and keep your scalp healthy. It can also remove excess oil without overdrying, as well as preventing dandruff. For those of you dealing with itchy scalp, dandruff, or breakage, this ingredient can be a game changer. Here’s the science:
Acidity and pH
Often, hair that looks dull, broken, or frizzy tends to have higher pH levels. Apple Cider is an acidic ingredient, which contains a good amount of acetic acid that can help lower pH levels, bringing them back into balance.
Because Apple Cider Vinegar is antimicrobial, it can help control the common bacteria and fungi that that leads to dry itchy scalp, and other hair and scalp issues, such as minor infections.
Vitamin & Minerals in ACV
ACV is rich in vitamins and minerals that are good for your hair's health like Vitamin C and Vitamin B. Vitamin B helps carry oxygen and nutrients to your scalp, and Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect your hair from free radical damage. Apple Cider Vinegar also contains alpha-hydroxy acid and anti-inflammatory properties, which work to exfoliate the scalp and prevent dandruff.
