Now, what is pH Balance?
pH or "Potential of Hydrogen" is the process of measuring the acid or alkaline levels of any liquid. The liquid can be water or cream-based.
Acidic levels range from 0 to 6.9, while Alkaline levels range from 7.1 to 14. Pure water is neutral; having a level of 7.0.
Earlier, I had tested the water and it was about 7.5, so I needed to test the mixture of V05 conditioner and water.
To only way to accomplish this would be to add an acidic liquid. Apple Cider Vineger is an acidic liquid that may people use on their hair, so I decided to use that.
I tested the pH level of my vineger, and it was about 2.5.
To bring the pH level of my spritz bottle mixture down, I started adding a quarter teaspoon of vineger at a time till the level was down to between 4.5 -5.5.
Now, I know that when I prepare my daily spritz water, I have a mixture of 1 cup water, 1/2 tablespoon V05 conditioner, and 3/4 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vineger.
If you don't like using Apple Cider Vinegar, try Aloe Vera Juice, which is suppose to have similar pH level to the hair sebum.
