Increase the cleansing power of your shampoo with a splash of vodka.
Vodka is good for more than making cosmopolitans. The clear alcohol has an acidic pH that helps cleanse hair of the buildup brought on by coloring, chlorine, and other products, says Eva Scrivo, owner of Eva Scrivo Salon in New York. Getting rid of the buildup reveals the healthy hair beneath.
How to use: Buy an extra bottle of your favorite shampoo and add a splash of vodka to it. Use the spiked shampoo only once a week so the alcohol won’t overdry your hair. Stick to the regular formula for daily use.
