Lactic acid, one of the most sought-after AHAs (alpha hydroxy acid), is obtained from milk. Among its many advantages is that it helps in scalp exfoliation and renews the skin of the scalp. It also helps in maintaining a healthy pH balance, removing product buildup, increasing hair elasticity to prevent breakage, removing dandruff, and adding shine.

Lactic acid is present in a lot of hair care products including shampoos, serums or hair sprays. Exfoliating hair can help in keeping the scalp clean and it lessens the buildup brought on by hair treatments and environmental exposure. By using hair care products infused with lactic acid, you can give your hair a treatment they deserve. So, next time you go to buy new products for hair, check if they contain lactic acid.

How To Use Lactic Acid For Hair Care?

Here is the right way to use lactic acid on hair:

1. Begin by mixing lactic acid and water in  equal amounts in a bowl.

2. Massage your scalp with the mixture for two to three minutes.

3. Next, use cold water to thoroughly rinse the mixture from the hair. Shampoo your hair as usual after that.

Use lactic acid one to two times every week for best results.

How To Use Lactic Acid For Hair Care

Although lactic acid is excellent for hair care, using it excessively might harm your hair's health by making it more dry, frizzy, and itchy. Always pay attention to how your scalp and hair respond to such treatments so that you can adjust how frequently you use them. 

If you’re using lactic acid for the first time, make sure you do a patch test before using it directly on your hair as every product reacts differently on different hair. When using it directly on your scalp, take a small amount to check for any allergic reaction.
