Ever wonder how apple cider is made? It’s actually quite simple. The process starts by adding crushed apples (cider) to yeast, which will ferment the sugars, turning them into an alcohol. Then bacteria is added into the mix, to further ferment and transform the solution into an acetic acid or vinegar.

So what is so special about apple cider vinegar anyways? Well, it has been commonly referred to as a home remedy miracle. Many people, including some well known celebrities, claim it can help with weight loss, sore throats, acne, mosquito bites and more.

Most importantly it has been known to help create shiny and healthy hair, which is why we use it as a key ingredient in our shampoo and conditioners. Here are the top 5 reasons you should consider introducing apple cider vinegar into your hair routine:


1. IT BALANCES THE PH OF YOUR SCALP. The pH of apple cider vinegar is actually quite close to the natural pH of human hair. Some shampoos and other hair products can upset the pH level of your scalp, so apple cider vinegar is a great way to bring it back to its natural acidity level. If your hair looks dull, brittle or frizzy, this may be signs that your scalp may be higher on the pH scale and apple cider vinegar might be just the remedy you need. 

Note: All of our shampoos are made with a neutral pH, which means all of our shampoos are tear free!

2. IT IS A NATURAL DISINFECTANT, KEEPING AWAY BACTERIA AND FUNGI. This is often the cause of dandruff, which is why apple cider vinegar has been known as a saviour for many dandruff sufferers.

Note: Rosemary essential oil helps to stimulate blood flow to the scalp, which makes our Rosemary Mint a great shampoo choice for people with dandruff or thinning hair.


3. IT IS A GREAT WAY TO REMOVE PRODUCT BUILD UP AND RESTORE LIFE TO YOUR HAIR. Apple cider vinegar works to break up all that build up to reveal beautiful hair once again.


4. IT HELPS TO REDUCE FRIZZ AND ADD SHINE TO YOUR HAIR. Frizz is caused by lifted cuticles on the hair follicles. Apple cider vinegar works to smooth these cuticles, which also helps the hair reflect light, which gives it that sparkling shine.

5. PREVENTS SPLIT ENDS AND BREAKAGE. If you regularly add apple cider vinegar into your hair routine, it will continually help close the cuticles of the hair, which will help to strengthen and, in turn help prevent split ends and breakage.

Note: If you are looking for an even deeper hydration to help with dandruff, split ends or frizz you can add just a few drops of one of our body oils onto your palm and massage your scalp or rub onto dry ends. Leave for 5-10 minutes and then shampoo as usual.
