Quick post! I’m currently in love with this very unique product from our favorite french brand, Yves Rocher. It’s best-selling Eclat Radiance Rinsing Vinegar
. I got this out of a whim among my Yves Rocher haul
because it seemed like the most interesting. While it’s not the first time I’ve heard of rinsing hair with vinegar, it’s the first time I’ve heard of vinegar made of raspberries. I was hesitant at first as it might stink my hair, but it didn’t! Before I go on to the review here’s an explanation of hair vinegar rinsing
The use of vinegar with a variety of plants or essential oils for cosmetic purposes can be traced back to the Romans and was fashionable during the nineteenth century as vinegar de toilette.
The outer layer of the hair, the cuticle, covers the hair shaft and protects it like the bark on a tree. The cuticle is made of overlapping layers of long scales that lie along the surface of the hair like shingles on a roof. It is the condition of the cuticle scales that determines whether you are going to have a bad hair day.
When the cuticle is in good shape, is unbroken, and lies flat, your hair has a smooth appearance. When the layers of the cuticle are tightly knit together, the light is able to reflect off the cuticle. This is what makes hair shine! The cuticle opens when we shampoo our hair. When the cuticle layers are open and not knit together, the hair will feel rough, coarse and brittle. The hair will absorb the light rather than reflect it, which gives the appearance of dull and lifeless hair.
Vinegar removes scaly build-up and residue from hair shafts and closes the cuticles. Since residue coats the hair causing it to look dull, removing residue gives your hair more shine. By closing the cuticles, the hair slides more easily and there will be fewer tangles. Vinegar has a tonic action that promotes blood circulation in the small capillaries that irrigate the skin.
How to Use
The bottle is ingeniously designed as the hole is just the right size to drip the exact amount of liquid you need to pour on your hair. I just shake it directly on my head, be careful not to put some on your eye as it will sting. After applying on my hair, I massage my scalp and hair to ensure the vinegar is evenly distributed. It smells so yummy like skittles!
- My hair feels clean but not dry afterwards
- Having limp hair, this does not weigh my hair down and even helps build more volume
- Smells like raspberry skittles. Yummy!
- Convinient and easy to use with its easy squirt bottle
- Closes hair cuticles, and prevent split ends!
- A bit on the expensive side but I tell you it’s worth it!
How much does it cost and where can I buy this?
It costs 395php at Yves Rocher branches near you.
Will I repurchase?
An easy yes. This makes a HUGE difference on my hair’s health. Last week when I got a haircut and made my hair shorter
, I vowed to take good care of my tresses and grow it long and healthy.
