Ever heard of Apple Cider Vinegar as hair conditioner? How about Kombucha hair conditioner? Yes, there is such a thing!
Like ACV, kombucha tea is also a good hair conditioner. It contains amino acids that help in strengthening the roots of your hair that treats hair fall and acetic acid that refreshes your hair and makes it shiny again (or shinier if you already have a shiny crowning glory) !
For the last three years that I have been making my own kombucha tea, I have been rinsing my hair with kombucha hair conditioner on and off. There was a time that I was religiously using it three times a week. But I always forget to fill that little bottle in the bathroom or make the kombucha hair conditioner, so I turn to commercial hair conditioners. Anyway, if you are interested in making your own kombucha hair conditioner, check out the recipe below.
Kombucha Hair Conditioner Recipe
- 70 ml brewed kombucha tea
- 7 drops of Lavender essential oil
- spray bottle
- Pour 70 ml of brewed kombucha tea to your spray bottle.
- Add in 7 drops of Lavender essential oil and shake.
Although many recipes for kombucha hair conditioner you can find online call for kombucha vinegar, I didn’t follow them. Because I learned that the natural pH level of our hair is between 4 to 5.5 and the products that you use for your hair should be of the same pH level. This is usually the pH level of kombucha tea we like to drink; slightly acidic but not too sweet. The right pH level will help strengthen the outer layer of our hair, make our hair glossier and less prone to hair breakage. If you use kombucha vinegar, which is very acidic, the hair cuticle will lift and remove the natural oils. This will result to dull and fizzy hair that is prone to breakage.
Also, I chose Lavender essential oil because it helps in improving blood circulation, prevents hair loss and smells amazing!
