Ever heard of shampoos that feature 'balance your scalp/hair Ph?"
Here is the home remedy way:
Balance dry hair with - acid - vinegar
When your hair is oily you'll probably need baking soda to alkalize your locks, but be mindful your can be dried out.
Balance oily with - alkaline - baking soda
When your hair is dry try vinegar, it softens the hair cuticle releasing debris with out stripping the hair of it's natural oils.
Cleanse and strengthen the hair with egg
The whites have protein which binds to the hair, thickening it. But be mindful to much protein will make your hair too thick and heavy for itself, breaking at the shaft. A warning sign is when the hair starts to get a crunchy feeling. The egg yolk is very moisturizing making it a great hair conditioner with it's high fat content. So, what I found was a raw egg beaten and massaged from root to tip was like a hair rebuilding all in one treatment. At first I did this every other week, then every month. I found now my hair is fully rebuilt, since I don't color it or use abrasive chemicals, and I rarely use egg to wash my hair. As with before do not use hot water to rinse, for obvious scrambled reasons...
Now I am experimenting with the best styling product. I have gone back to the drawing board and have been looking at what's new on the market. I know when to balance my hair Ph, even rebuild my hair. But, I'm an urbanite and my hair needs extra protection and the sparkle dazzle of a sheen curl definer.
So, the hair experiment continues - - -
