6 Ways To Balance Your Hair pH

hair ph

The human hair and scalp is slightly acidic. The natural pH of the hair is between 4.5 and 5.5. The slightly acidic environment prevents growth of fungi and bacteria on the scalp that keeps your hair dandruff free and minimizes scalp acne and bacterial infections. The low pH of the natural oil that forms a protective layer on the hair cuticles makes the hair smooth and lustrous. Products that disrupt the natural pH of the hair make the hair dry and brittle. Hair pH imbalance causes dandruff and scalp infections. If you experience hair problems that indicate that your hair pH has shifted beyond the normal range, with the help of the following remedies you can easily restore the normal pH balance of your hair.

Vinegar

The pH of acetic acid in vinegar is lower than the natural pH of your hair. Although rinsing the hair with vinegar helps in reducing the pH of the hair that has been disrupted following application of an alkaline product, undiluted vinegar should not be applied directly to the hair as it tends to increase the acidity of the hair. The hair cuticle shrinks and hardens when the pH falls below 4.5. To restore the normal pH of the hair, dilute the vinegar with water until the pH becomes 4. After washing your hair, rinse your hair with diluted vinegar.

Lemon Juice

Citric acid in lemon juice with a pH of 2 should be used sparingly to restore the natural pH balance of the hair that has become too alkaline. To flatten the hair cuticles that have become dry and frizzy, rinse your hair with diluted lemon juice. Leave the lemon juice on your hair at least for 30 minutes. For better result, combine lemon juice with olive oil or coconut oil and use the mixture as a live-in conditioner.

Coconut Milk And Aloe Vera Gel Shampoo

Washing the hair with chemical-free homemade shampoo made by combining coconut milk with aloe vera gel helps in restoring the normal pH balance of the hair. Coconut milk is an excellent cleanser. It cleans the scalp without disrupting its pH. Mix 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk with 1 ¾ cups of aloe vera gel. Take a small amount of the mixture and massage your scalp and hair. After washing off the homemade shampoo with water, rinse with diluted vinegar or lemon juice.

After washing your hair, rinse your hair with lukewarm flat beer. Leave the beer on your hair for about 5 minutes. Thoroughly rinse your hair with plain water to get rid of the unpleasant smell from your locks.
