Wow Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo and Organic Coconut Oil Conditioner Review

By  | 

Have you heard of people using Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo, what about Virgin Oil and Avocado Oil Conditioner?  You know, as a kid my mom always told me that apple cider vinegar was great for cleansing the scalp and stipping the hair of residue.  She also said it would strengthen weak, brittle hair.  My mom was no cosmetologist, but she does naturally know a lot about hair.

In this post, I will share the advantages of using apple cider vinegar in your hair and I will also review Wow Shampoo and Conditioner that was recently sent to me.  I have also included a link to my Youtube video just in case you would like to try it.

She was right, here are the advantages of using Apple Cider Vinegar shampoo:

1. Balance Hair & Sebum pH

Our hair and the natural oil that comes from our scalp, known as sebum, have a pH level of between 4.5 and 5.5. When kept at this acidity level, the scalp is safeguarded against fungal and bacterial growth, ensuring healthy hair and skin.

Unfortunately, many shampoos and other hair products disrupt this natural pH which can affect the cuticles of the hair and the condition of the scalp.

Apple cider vinegar is naturally high in acetic acid and has a pH level which is close to that of the human hair. Regularly rinsing with this vinegar can help bring your scalp and hair to its ideal acidity, especially if you have oily hair.

2. Antibacterial and Antifungal Properties

The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar is a potent antimicrobial which can kill bacteria and fungus, common underlying causes of dandruff and hair loss, making it a fantastic natural cure.

An ACV rinse is also a good preventative regimen – by maintaining the natural pH of your scalp, you’ll be creating a hostile environment for the fungus and bacteria that cause these issues.

Rinsing even once a week with an apple cider vinegar mixture has brought relief to many dandruff sufferers and prevented further flaking.

3. Cleansing and Clarifying

Using a multitude of products on our hair – like serums, gels, sprays, and masks – leads to product build-up. All this sticky residue can leave the hair looking flat, dull and lifeless.

One of the easiest ways to get rid of this accumulation and restore life to your locks is by using apple cider vinegar.

When applying ACV, make sure you let it sit in the hair for at least three minutes which, according to ‘The Science of Hair Care’, is the time the vinegar requires to break up the molecular structure of the residue, allowing it to be easily rinsed away.

4. Add Natural Body & Define Curls

The Curl Manual claims that an apple cider vinegar rinse can make your curls ‘pop’, by bringing back their springy bounce!

And, unlike conventional shampoo and conditioners, the vinegar won’t weigh down the individual strands, meaning you can enjoy more movement and natural body to your hairstyle. You may even find you don’t need to use heating and styling products after a vinegar rinse, saving your hair from further damage.

5. Detangle

A fantastic natural detangler, apple cider vinegar is usually used as an alternative to conditioner in the popular no ‘poo movement.

It’s so effective as its natural acidity helps to smoothen down the cuticle – encouraging knots and tangles to slip out and allowing a brush to glide through more easily.

6. Reduce Frizz

Frizzy hair is caused by lifted cuticles on the hair. Smooth down the cuticles with apple cider vinegar and you’ll enjoy an overall smooth, frizz-free mane.

7. Add Shine

The cuticle’s position also affects the light reflecting properties of the strands. When the cuticle is down – as it is after an apple cider vinegar rinse – the hair is better able to reflect light, giving your ‘do a glossy, healthy appearance.

8. Reduce Porosity of the Hair

Normal hair allows necessary amounts of moisture to penetrate the outer cuticle, while porous hair absorbs liquid quickly…but loses it just as quickly.

High porosity is the result of damage to the hair from chemical treatments and environmental exposure. This irreversible destruction creates gaps and holes in the surface of the hair shaft leaving the hair more prone to further damage.

While you can’t change the porosity of your hair, you can manage it by using an apple cider vinegar rinse to flatten the cuticle and minimize gaps. In order to ensure the new hair that grows out doesn’t suffer the same harm, eliminate the source of the damage and take note of these 22 natural secrets to growing healthy hair.

Not sure if you have porous hair? A simple test will reveal all. Drop a strand of clean hair into a glass of water. If it immediately sinks, your hair is of high porosity. If it floats midway, it’s of normal porosity. If the strand floats towards the top and it takes a while to sink, your strands are of low porosity.

9. Stimulate Hair Growth & Prevent Hair Loss

Apple cider vinegar stimulates better blood circulation to the hair follicles – something that is vital for encouraging hair growth and preventing hair loss. Furthermore, this blood carries essential nutrients to the hair follicle cells, strengthening the roots and promoting growth.

10. Prevent Split Ends & Breakage

By using an apple cider vinegar rinse regularly, you’ll be naturally removing tangles from your hair, closing the cuticles, improving porosity and encouraging stronger strands – all of which lead to a reduction in split ends and breakage.

Review Time

Can you believe that apple cider vinegar can do all of this?  I can, because I have been using this shampoo ( it has become a part of my regimen).  Now, let me also explain that I always use different shampoos and conditioners for different reasons. This one, in particular, is great for clarifying, adding protein, and for strengthening the hair.

Wow has created a great shampoo and condition duo- in addition, they added a 10 in 1 leave in hair vitalizing treatment that achieves amazing results. When I use the shampoo, all build up is removed and my scalp feels clean.  It is made with some of my favorite essential oils- rosemary, and tea tree.

The conditioner is made with virgin coconut oil, avocado oil, and wheat protein.  I loved the conditioner because immediately my hair felt soft and silky to the touch.  The avocado oils are rich in healthy vitamins, minerals, and lost nutrients.

The 10 in 1 hair revitalizer spray has so many benefits- it truly is a 10 in 1 leave-in a true miracle.  Here are the 10 benefits:

  • Root to Tuo Frizz Taming
  • Stronger Roots
  • Less Split Ends
  • Improved Lipid Barrier
  • Visibly Improved Texture
  • Dandruff Control
  • Hair Breakage Protection
  • Hair Fall Control
  • Higher Lustre
  • Intense Hydration

In addition to all of these benefits listed above, this amazing duo contains no mineral oils and parabens.

I have always been in love with all things beauty. From a little girl I would say that one day I would be a Cosmetologist. I did it, I became a Licensed Cosmetologist in 2006. I have learned so much about how to wear makeup, how to style the hair, and how to maintain the overall health of hair that I decided to create a blog. Being beautiful creates confidence, and flawless hair and makeup can help us all create that image we want to be. I want to help you step out of the box, try new makeup looks, and new hair ideas, new skincare regimens to make life better. You can live colorful, cosmetic, and be creative everyday give them some maxwell house coffee mmm, mmm good, and leave the tea home lol. Enjoy!
