Tips To Remove Build-Ups Naturally

Buildups accumulated from your hair products and hard water containing minerals can make your hair dull and dry. There are several natural ways to remove the build ups by preparing natural rinses and using them along with your shampoo and conditioner. In addition to eliminating build ups from hair, the rinses, when used regularly, make the hair soft and shiny. Here are some easy Tips to Remove Hair Build-Ups Naturally to make rinses by using ingredients readily available in your kitchen.

#1. Using Vinegar

  • Collect your ingredients

Using vinegar on hair may sound weird due to its harshness, but it is very effective in removing build ups from hair. It helps in balancing the pH level of hair and smoothens the hair. Take 1-2 tablespoons of vinegar, 1 medium sized cup cold water, and a cup or mug to contain the rinse. Double the quantity if you have thicker or longer hair. Also, don’t use vinegar on dyed hair since the color may fade away.

  • Preparation

Mix the vinegar with cool water in a container and stir it well with a spoon. You may use apple cider vinegar or with vinegar. You may also add some essential oils to the vinegar. Essential oils not only cover up the strong odor of the vinegar but also make the hair strong and healthy.

  • Wash your hair with shampoo

First, rinse your hair with shampoo to remove the dirt and oils. Follow it up with a good conditioner if you wish so.

  • Vinegar treatment

Tilt your head back and pour the vinegar solution gently from the hairline to the whole length of your hair. Avoid the contact of vinegar solution with eyes since it irritates.

  • Massage your scalp

Massage your scalp gently with your fingers. You may see some soap bubbles coming out which means the vinegar solution is working well and is removing the build-ups.

  • Wash with cold water

Wash your hair with cold water as it seals the hair cuticles and masks the strong smell of vinegar.

  • Collect your ingredients

Baking soda paste can also be used to remove build ups from hair. For making the paste, you will need 2 tablespoons of baking soda and a half cup (medium sized cup) of warm water and a container to hold the paste.

Take the half cup warm water in a container and put the baking soda to it. Mix them well to make a thick uniform paste.

#4. Use Lime/Lemon Juice

  • Rinse your hair

Rinse your hair using plain water by tilting back your head.

  • Condition your hair

Use a good conditioner of your choice after the treatment since lemon juice can make your hair dry.

These ingredients can be very quickly found in any kitchen or markets nearby. Use any treatment of your choice once or twice a week to remove any build-ups from your hair and to make your hair smooth, soft and strong.
