How to Cleanse the Scalp while Wearing Braids

We often wear braids as a form of protective or low-maintenance style. By doing this the hair gets less manipulation and is able to grow. The longer we have braids installed; the more build ups we accumulate on the scalp from sweat, pollutants from the air and surroundings, dead skin cells, sebum, hair products and more. To prevent this the scalp need to be cleaned on a regular basis. This DIY scalp cleanse recipe is very simple.

ACV Scalp Cleanse Recipe
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Water Bottle Spray
Jamaican Black Castor Oil
Mix 1/2 cup ACV with 1 cup filtered water or bottled water. 
Pour in a spray bottle. 
Add 2 drops of JBCO
Spray over scalp and gentle massage. 
Allow the ACV to sit on scalp for 3 minutes then rinse hair thoroughly with water to remove the ACV mixture. 
This Mixture will help to keep the scalp clean without messing up with your Ph balance. By using ACV wash once per week it will replace the need for shampooing the hair. It will also help with itching and you will be able to wear your braids much longer and still maintain a clean scalp.

  1. I like DIY products for maintaining my natural hair. Great tip! I rarely wear braids, but I always struggled to keep my scalp clean when I did. This recipe and simple directions might motivate me to rock 'em again soon.

  2. I'll definitely be sharing this with my sister! She just got braids in her hair not too long ago. I wish I had known of this when I had braids a few years ago. Thanks for sharing!
