I’m open to everyone that my hair is chemically treated, thus, it needs regular treatment but I just couldn’t afford it if I have to do it in a salon. I do it myself then. Aside from the Papaya Hair Mask that I apply on my hair, I alternate it (every other week) with a mixture of hair conditioner and vinegar. White vinegar will work fine but Apple Cider Vinegar seems to be the best hair care vinegar. Also this is good for lace front wigs there.

Here’s what you should do:

  1. Mix 2 sachets of hair conditioner with a tablespoonful of vinegar in a bowl.
  2. Stir it till you get a smooth texture.
  3. Apply on your hair especially especially the “ends” where it is usually damaged.
  4. Leave on for about 30 minutes while you do your usual bath ritual.
  5. Rinse well.

I am not sure how are you going to take the not-so-good smell of the vinegar, so I suggest that you do this on a weekend. I’ve been doing this since then, it was my hairdresser who taught me this. It works for me. But of course, the usual, I checked online what vinegar has got to do with our hair before I tried it and it says:

Vinegar removes scaly build-up and residue from hair shafts and closes the cuticles. Since residue coats the hair causing it to look dull, removing residue gives your hair more shine. By closing the cuticles, the hair slides more easily and there will be fewer tangles.

So there’s the explanation.
