Women's Top 4 Hair Care Secrets
Using Natural Conditioners
Beer - Smoother Hair
Beer is brewed without oxygen and contains carbonic and acetic acids with a pH of 4.4-4.6. This weak acidity closes cuticles for smooth hair. As a natural grain ferment, beer also provides nourishing nutrients.
Use beer diluted no more than 1:2 with warm water. Soak hair 5-10 minutes, massaging to fully interact with beer and cleanse.
Vinegar - Shiner Hair
Similar to beer, vinegar's weak acidity also closes cuticles for sleek hair. Made by fermenting grains, vinegar contains ample nutrition.
After shampooing, add 3 capfuls of rice or apple cider vinegar into warm water. Soak hair 10 minutes, rinse, then air dry for smooth, minimized shedding.
Ginger Juice - Hair Growth
Ginger stimulates growth. Add ginger slices when boiling water for rinsing after shampooing. Or mix ginger juice into shampoo. Don't add too much at once.
Baking Soda - Degreasing
Baking soda is a mild alkaline that dissolves oil. Some overseas use it instead of shampoo. Mix 25g baking soda per 500ml water. Add soda last at under 50°C to avoid decomposition.
Lemon Juice - Shine and Softness
Lemon juice's pH of 3 is similar to conditioners. Its vitamins also stimulate circulation and growth. After shampooing, soak hair 1-3 minutes in lemon water then rinse.
Dry winter hair risks breakage. Spray roots and massage daily. After each wash, apply leave-in sprays before half drying.
Dry winter needs proper scalp cleaning. Limit washing to 2-3 times per week. Blow dry immediately as dampness makes hair fragile.
Long hair rubbing on clothes causes static electricity. Tie hair back. Avoid plastic/metal combs. Wood/horn are better.
Massage the scalp to improve circulation for healthier, static-free hair.
In summary, natural solutions like beer, vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice and proper routines like scalp massages, limited washing and moisturizing all help ensure smooth, shiny, healthy hair.
