I was listening to a conversation with two women (mother and daughter) where the mother suggested to the daughter to wash her hair using vinegar in order to get hair spray out. She also said to use baking soda too. Not sure if she meant use them at the same time to get the chemical reaction of fuzzing or what. But the daughter was like oh yeah thats a good idea....
But anyway I spoke up and said, ummm I don't think you should use vinegar on your hair - doesn't that damage it? Pretty sure the vinegar would start to dissolve your hair because it is acid.
They were both ..like ooooh noooo....it is so good for your hair it really strips out the products and cleans them without doing damage and is actually healthy!
I didn't argue with them, just dropped it, but when I got home I tried to look it up a bit and all I can seem to find on youtube a re a bunch of videos touting how great vinegar is for your hair and makes your hair grow back and stuff. But this just doesn't seem right. Of course no scientific evidence just a bunch of click-bait videos of wannabe hair specialists.
I was thinking of doing my own experiment and put some hair in a jar with some vinegar and see how long it takes to dissolve.
Does anyone have any scientific evidence that supports my position? I think for every second vinegar is on your hair it is weakening it. I just can't seem to find scientific proof or evidence. Ideally proof with microscope....or peer reviewed study.
What do you think? What experiences have you all had?
