Hair || Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse.

I love Apple Cider Vinegar for my hair. It has a couple of different uses, it is used to naturally cleanse, detangle and believe it or not condition hair. It is also has the ability to close the hair cuticle making the hair smoother and shinier. So it is an all round win really. It is also great to remove build up, which is often overlooked but a very important part of a good haircare routine. As with all vinegar it has a strong smell but once the hair is dry the smell completely vanishes.

You will need:

1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Cups Warm Water

It's as simple as that!

For the rinse, just pour the mixture over your hair in the shower, massage the scalp with it, to ensure full distribution, then rinse after a few minutes. I don't fully rinse my hair afterwards as I like to leave a bit in there, I usually just half rinse. I find that ACV cleanses the scalp and removes little bits of build up that accumulate over time. It also leaves hair feeling a lot fresher. You may need to experiment with the amounts slightly, dry hair likes less ACV whilst oily likes more.

Using ACV on your hair may seem strange and but it can be a really good way to add some shine and softness to the hair and also cleanse the hair. It is also very cheap and economical, which is always a plus. My favourite thing about ACV is that it is so versatile and can even be used as a natural facial toner and make-up remover. I really think it has some great qualities and is a great alternative to expensive products.

Would you give ACV rinses a go?

Let me know!
