Here at Morrocco Method, many of our vegan hair care products contain Apple Cider Vinegar, or ACV. ACV is well known for its healing powers and incredible softening effects on one’s hair. In 400 BC, Hippocrates, the grandfather of medicine, treated his patients with vinegar for its powerful healing and cleansing qualities. It is a naturally occurring antibiotic and antiseptic. Even one of our shampoos has this amazing ingredient.
What Makes ACV So Great?
Natural (undistilled) apple cider vinegar can really be called one of nature’s most perfect foods, and is made from fresh crushed apples and then allowed to mature. It is best matured in wooden barrels, as wood seems to boost the natural fermentation. Natural ACV should be a rich brownish color, and should have a pungent odor. Apple cider vinegar is great for many things. Most people purchase it for flavoring their foods. Some women purchase it to rinse their hair after shampooing, as it makes the hair soft and easier to manage. Some purchase it to put in water to wash windows, and it’s also a great deodorizer. Both the general public and the producers of vinegar have been in total darkness as to the powerful health qualities of natural, fully ripened apple cider vinegar. To make vinegar be bright colored and more attractive to the eye, producers distill the vinegar. In distilling, the vinegar is turned to steam by heating, therefore destroying powerful enzymes and distilling out powerful life-giving minerals.
If you truly want to get all these benefits out of your vinegar, search online or in your local health foods store for all-natural, fully ripened, and chemical free Apple Cider Vinegar. One good, reputable company that has been around forever is Bragg.
