It may not be as messy as some remedies, but it is by far the smelliest. The use of vinegar in your hair naturally treats the scalp to a boost of acid neutralizing goodness. Often the cause of dry, damaged hair is an unhealthy scalp. You can restore the pH balance of your scalp by applying vinegar directly to your hair. It can irritate the eyes, so be sure to use a rag or towel, and tilt your head back while smearing it in. Rinse thoroughly after about 10 minutes of soaking.
Even though they work wonders when used separately, it is possible to reap the benefits of eggs, olive oil and vinegar by combining them in different ways. One helpful conditioner is created by combining the yolk of two eggs with about 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Likewise, you can mix vinegar and olive oil together to take advantage of the natural moisturizing properties of both at once.
