It’s taken me several weeks to get the measurements right for me, but finally, here it is.
- 20ml vinegar (either apple cider vinegar, or distilled white vinegar. I prefer white because I think it smells slightly less offensive 😉 )
- 220ml water
- 2 drops lavender essential oil
This makes enough for one cup of rinse, which I pour over my hair after washing. I leave it in for a couple of minutes and rinse away.
I rinse quite a lot to get the vinegar smell out – you know you’ve done it right when you can’t really smell vinegar after you get out of the shower, just a faint hint of lavender.
I’ve really grown to love how this makes my hair feel soft as soon as I pour it on.
Until today I was making it up each time I showered, but today I made up bottles for the shower (courtesy of Ikea).
To fill each bottle I used:
- 32ml vinegar
- 350ml water
- 3 drops lavendar essential oil
Now I can shower and just pour half a bottle into a cup I keep in the shower, without any faffing around beforehand 🙂
