The quest for wonderful hair can be a long and winding road and using a great shampoo is just the start of it. Using a hair rinse should also be an integral step but using a natural one is an even better option.
Hair rinses give nutrients to the hair. They lend shine, lock in moisture and can help to heal damaged hair or an irritated scalp. You can use rinses instead of shampoo or after you shampoo and before you condition, it really is up to you- just experiment for yourself and see what works best.
Most shampoos have chemicals in, but even natural ones will strip away some of the oils that are naturally present in your hair. Whilst conditioning does give back some of the natural moisture and protection, using a hair rinse, particularly one with an ingredient such as cider apple vinegar in can make all the difference. Using a hair rinse can also help to restore the pH of your hair to a healthy 4.5- 5.5 and it can also help improve the circulation in the scalp which leads to better all round scalp and hair growth.
Hair rinses are also great if you are someone that is very busy and always on the go. In cases such as this, you can use a hair rinse instead of a shampoo to cut down on getting ready time. The rinse will still clean and cleanse your hair leaving it fresh, but it will take significantly less time than shampooing once or twice, rinsing, and then using conditioner.
Rinses are also helpful for detangling knots, removing the build up of products and pollution, bringing a glorious shine, and adding volume and body to tired tresses. They are also very useful for helping transition from a commercial shampoo to a natural shampoo!
To use a hair rinse, all you have to do is shake it up, pour or spritz over your just shampooed or wet hair, massage into your scalp, and then rinse. Of course, you don’t have to rinse it- if you have particularly tangled or dry hair, leaving it in can help it become instantly more manageable.
