Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse

June 17, 2009

Rinsing with apple cider vinegar will help balance the pH of your hair and remove the buildup that can result from the use of hair styling products. Vinegar is acidic, so I don’t recommend using this everyday. I only do this treatment 1-2 times a month and don’t recommend that you use it more than once a week.

What You Need: 1-2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 cups of water.

Directions: Mix items together. I place my mixture in a spray bottle. Apply the apple cider vinegar rinse to your hair as a final rinse after shampooing and conditioning, or after a co-wash.

Don’t worry about the slight vinegar smell after using, it disappears once your hair is fully dry. If you want to create a larger batch use 1/3 of a cup of ACV to 1 quart of water. Pay attention to how your hair responds to this treatment and adjust the mixture as needed.

I love ACV. It not only helped to clarify my hair but it also really helped with my dandruff and itchy scalp. I even use it on my face as a toner. I can’t live without the stuff.

Nadege, thanks for the toner tip! I’m trying to find some products to use for my face, and this is the second time someone mentioned ACV as a toner. Thanks again!

Hello I never thought to use acv in my hair ! but I know it worked on my sons eczema, my uncle told me to put a little in his bath water and it works his little legs are soft. His skin used to be so hard and dry. Only on his legs after I started putting acv about once every two months it went away. So if it worked for his legs maybe it will be good for my hair! Thanx!
