Carbonated Water RinseTo control frizz, pick up a bottle of non flavored carbonated water to rinse with. After you wash your hair, give it a final rinse with a mixture of regular water and carbonated or sparkling water. So, use half regular water and half carbonated water, the longer your hair is the more you will need! Carbonated water rinses work well for those who just can’t bare the smell of apple cider vinegar. Using this rinse will leave your hair shiny, healthy and less frizzy, which is a added bonus for curly headed women.
Many of the hair products that people use disrupt the natural pH of the hair. A substance that is too alkaline will cause the hair cuticle to open, while a substance that is too acidic will cause the cuticle to contract.
Human hair and scalp oil, sebum, has a pH balance of between 4.5 and 5.5. Carbonated or sparkling water reduces frizz is because of its low pH level. Carbonated water has a pH level of about 7.35. It should be diluted with water until it has a pH level of 4. Anything between 0 and 6.9 is acidic, 7 is neutral, and anything between 7.1 and 14 is alkaline.
