Great ideas! Voted up and useful! ;D

@TLPoague: When you choose your shampoo and conditioner, make sure they gentle and don't contain alcohol or sodium lauryl sulfate (or any sulfate). These will dry out your hair. Look for a brand that has few ingredients. If you can recognize the ingredients, that's best. Add a tablespoon of olive oil or peanut oil to the entire bottle of conditioner. You'll need to shake it up well and maybe set the bottle in a bowl of warm water before using it each time. This will put just the right amount of oil in your hair and won't leave it feeling greasy.

I use ACV on salads as it is said to aid arthritis pain, so many uses for one product. It seems to be working for me as I was beginning to have arthritis in my hands. Isn't that great for a writer?? Thanks for the other tips 2besure, great article.

It is fine if you have brunette hair. It should just help bring out the highlights and improve health of scalp and hair. Multiply the recipe for larger amounts. If you are concerned about hair color, make the ACV rinse weaker. You should be able to tell by the color of the tea.

Excellent and informative hub! I know this hub is geared toward a brunette already, but my question is will it change the hair color of a brunette? My brother, who is a blonde, did ACV on his hair and over some time it took on a reddish cast. I want to try it but my hair is around 4 1/2 feet long and dark brown. Besides having to quadruple the recipe, would their be any other variations for extremely long hair? Do you think it will be a good thing for me? Is it just for an occasional wash or for each wash?

I have naturally dry, coarse, curly hair that is sometimes a beauticians worse nightmare. I found that by using olive oil will help to tame the dry coarse feel of it. Unfortunately too much will leave it greasy. These are great tips to bookmark for the future. Do you have any for blondes?

I really like seeing all the simple at our hands type of uses for stuff like vinegar and herbs, makes me wonder why there are 15 million different types of the same product on store shelves! Very useful hub. Oh and I used ti use an egg, spoonful white vinegar and a spoonful of honey as shampoo, works great!
