S.W. Recipe: Skin Cleanse Hair Conditioner
DIY conditioners are usually full of oil, but it’s often very difficult to get oil out your hair. We prefer this recipe, which is still very conditioning but really light and easy to rinse out.
Beer is full of B vitamins, repairs damaged hair, and adds volume. The fatty acid content of eggs helps moisturize and condition your hair, and apple cider vinegar will help make your hair shiny and also clear you of scalp issues and buildup. The nice thing about this conditioner is that it’s good for your hair and your scalp. This recipe is especially great for fine hair.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 egg
- ½ cup beer! (or an equal amount of aloe juice if you are gluten-free)
Here’s what you’ll do:
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk or stir well. Apply over entire head and either wrap in a towel and leave for up to thirty minutes, or just coat your hair in the shower and then rinse. Don’t use very hot water or you will scramble your egg … literally. Take the extra beer into your shower with you and drink it. You’re welcome. Makes one use.
