DIY Anti-itch Detox Hair Wash
This is great for those of you, who like me, get dandruff and an irritated scalp.
My mum (Susanne) told me that she had been playing around with some ingredients in her hair. She said that she was so impressed at how soft and shiny her hair was without having to use actual shampoo or conditioner.
I thought it sounded great but was sceptical as she has short thin hair, whereas I have very thick hair.
I decide to give it a go. I made a mix with Bentonite clay, Apple Cider Vinegar & Aloe Vera gel.
For my thick shoulder length hair, I used about 2 tablespoons of clay (Try to use a non-metal spoon), about a tablespoon of aloe vera gel, and then just poured in some apple cider vinegar (around 1/4 - 1/5 a cup). You can trial this amount and then re-assess if you need more or less. We never measure it.
If you have a very sensitive scalp, you could reduce the apple cider vinegar and add some water to dilute it.
You can apply this to dry or wet hair. For thicker hair, it would be easier to add to wet hair. Also, if you do have longer or thicker hair, you could just apply it to your scalp rather than all of your hair.
I like to leave mine in for around half an hour.
After I had rinsed it out, I was able to comb through my hair easily and my hair was shiny. Best of all, my dandruff appears to be disappearing!!!!
These are ingredients that many of you may already have at home. For those of you who don't, we have bentonite clay and aloe Vera gel available through our website.
