Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse

Updated on January 6, 2015

Vinegar hair rinses are a great way to remove dullness from our hair. Apple cider vinegar has an acidity which is close to human hair. Many hair care products which are available at the drug store are high in alkaline content. This makes our hair look dull after a while.

Apple Cider Vinegar works great as a conditioner. It can also serve as a cleaning product. This vinegar will kill. It has anti-bacterial qualities which can help your hair look it's best. It helps remove dirt from your hair. This promotes luster and makes your hair look beautiful.

      My grandma and my mum always did this so I've used vinegar in my hair for years too. It's funny because I use vinegar to clean my entire house but forgot about how good it is for hair - so thank you for reminding me.

      I haven't tried rinsing my hair with apple cider vinegar, but it could definitely use some help this winter. I'll give it a try. I also like the idea of adding extra herbs to the vinegar.
