Apple Cider Vinegar as a Hair Cleanser

One of the reasons I’m glad I went natural is the versatility and experimentation that my coily hair offers. I don’t have to worry about washing my flat iron job out or ruining my perm. I can try different products and techniques, secure in the fact that I can just wash it out if I don’t like it. So cruising through the aisles of my local organic food store, I stumbled upon some apple cider vinegar and remembered a Youtube video from one of my favorite naturals, naptural85.

On her quest to use more natural ingredients in her hair, she used apple cider vinegar as a shampoo or hair cleanser. She said it added the bounce and shine back to her coils. I bought a bottle (a little over 3 bucks) and decided to find out if it was just as good as she said. And to be completely honest, I didn’t do my research until after I tried out the apple cider vinegar rinse.

    I have to try this! I've never been really good for home remedies for hair, and I've got this really good argan oil that's helping me with hair loss and frizz (Pro Naturals moroccan argan oil from beyas). But I could do with some extra shine 😉

    dilute it with water, do maybe a a cap full of ACV per cup of water then poor the solution over your hair and scalp

    how exactly is this used? Does it replace shampoo at together? I've used it before, but Im unsure about the right way to use it. Thanks!

    This actually works really well! My hair is really soft after an applecider rinse. It does smell awful though, but the smell goes away after using conditioner.

    I just stalked her youtube videos and she's great. I'm going to try this recipe because I only use the apple cider mixed with water. Thanks so much for sharing.

    For those of us that are on the lazy side, makes a apple cider rinse called PH24/7 balancing rinse. Love it!
