DIY Remedy to Remove Hair Residue

The very products we use to nourish our hair might be the very things that leave residues to our hair making it look dull and lifeless. Not to mention the hair styling products such as wax, fixers, and mousse, that seem to team up and make our already damaged hair look even worse.

Fortunately this problem is easily remedied with some homemade tricks to remove the residue. Plus, you will only be using things that are lying around in your kitchen. 

Homemade tips to remove the residue of hair

To remove the residue left by styling products, wash your hair with a mixture of coarse sea salt with a little shampoo. Massage the mixture well through the hair and rinse as usual.

Another option is rinse your hair thoroughly with tomato juice and leave it on the hair for 10 minutes before washing as usual.

You can also remove the residue from the hair by adding a teaspoon of baking soda your regular shampoo. Baking soda is known for removing grease and residues. (It’s also a great ingredient for homemade face detoxifying mask as well). Mix the baking soda into the shampoo and stir the mix well before washing your hair with the mixture. Be sure to rinse really well or you can end up with dry bunches of hair.

Use apple cider vinegar to remove residue from hair - Mix equal parts water and apple cider vinegar. After washing with shampoo and rinse, use the apple cider vinegar as the final rinse.

With apple cider vinegar solution, you can massage your scalp and hair then let the vinegar in your hair for about 3 minutes. After the hair is rinsed with water, you can apply conditioner and rinse as usual.

This vinegar rinse has other positive effects on hair. Apple cider vinegar makes the outer cuticle layer of hair smoother, resulting in brighter and shinier hair. Furthermore, the use of this solution 1 or 2 times a week will make your hair and scalp becomes less oily and less prone to dandruff and itching. But do not use it every day as it will have the adverse effect because the vinegar will remove the natural oils that your hair needs to be healthy.
