|Seborrheic Dermatitis: ACV Rinses and Co-Washing Between Washes
A couple of weeks ago, I made the decision to go back to co-washing my hair. This summer has been brutal on my scalp because of my seborrheic dermatitis.
I know some of you might be saying, "I thought the apple cider vinegar rinses worked for you."
Well, they do!
My problem was that my hair was drying out due to washing it twice a week. This is in addition to doing ACV rinses, which keeps my scalp from itching.
I wash my hair every two weeks. If I sweat a lot or think my hair needs a wash, I will do an ACV rinse and co-wash it in between. Co-washing (washing my hair using conditioner) ensures I maintain the moisture. In the past, my only concern was I felt like my scalp wasn't getting clean enough. Now, I usually don't do it too many days after the regular shampooing. Also, the apple cider vinegar helps to clean and soothe my scalp, so problem solved!
So, how is the co-washing and ACV rinses working out?
So far so good! I've done this for two weeks.
Do you have any tips for this method?
I try to get a good amount of the conditioner on my scalp and use my fingernails to gently lift the debris from my scalp. before rinsing with water. This is the method that works for me. If it works for you, cool. If not, stick to what works for you (smile).
I would like to hear about your experiences!
