An apple cider vinegar hair rinse can help remove build-up on your scalp and leaves your hair smooth and shiny. It works on all hair types, so it doesn’t matter if you have normal, oily, or dry hair.
There are a few products on the market that you can purchase if you’re more of a buy vs. DIY person. I find that making this apple cider vinegar hair rinse at home doesn’t take a lot of time, and it definitely saves money.
Here is what you need to know before trying out an apple cider vinegar hair rinse for the first time.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
+ Treats dandruff – ACV has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, which makes it an effective treatment in treating and preventing dandruff.
+ Helps restore a healthy pH balance.
+ Encourages hair growth – Rinsing your hair with an ACV rinse will unclog pores and stimulate hair growth.
+ Helps with frizziness, rough hair cuticles and fights split ends.

- Section your hair and spray each section, while focusing on the scalp and the hair roots.
- Massage the mixture into your scalp.

HOW OFTEN CAN YOU DO AN APPLE CIDER VINEGAR HAIR RINSE?
Everyone’s hair is different, so you should really see what works for you. I don’t think there is a right or wrong here. For example, I wash my hair once a week, and I rinse my hair with apple cider vinegar whenever I wash it.
For me, once a week is what works. I still reap the benefits, but I’m not particularly eager to overdo it. After all, apple cider vinegar is not the most moisturizing ingredient in the world.
HOW TO STORE IT?
Do not store an ACV hair rinse in an open container or bowl in the bathroom. Instead, get a squirt bottle, travel-size shampoo bottle, spray bottle, or any other plastic container that has a lid.
I find that squirt bottles work the best. The wide opening allows me to easily pour the mixture in, while the squirt top allows me to control how much mixture I’m pouring on my head.
If you store it properly, this hair rinse can be good for 3-6 months.
