Apple cider vinegar is a highly effective hair conditioner and cleaner, and can help to promote hair growth. While vitamins and amino acids nourish hair, the acids will strip away residual buildup left by daily styling products, shampoos and conditioners. The acids in ACV help to regulate the scalp’s pH balance and clear hair follicles allowing for optimal growth and a healthy scalp. This rinse is far cheaper than store bought alternatives, and better than any product I’ve tried.
What you need: Apple cider vinegar (I prefer Bragg’s), water, a large bottle/cup/jar
How to use it: Mix one part vinegar to one part water in your container and take it into the shower with you. Make as much as you need for your hair length. After shampooing and rinsing hair, pour the mixture over your scalp and massage into both your hair and your head. Leave on for 3-5 minutes, then rinse and condition as usual. (Your hair will smell faintly of vinegar while it is wet, but it will not smell once it dries.) I use this every couple of weeks or whenever my hair starts to feel heavy and unmanageable.
