Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse Benefits


Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse Benefits

Excessive use of hair care styling products might be damaging to your hair. Hairsprays, gels, and creams used in excess can make your hair greasy and brittle. Instead of spending a fortune on a salon-quality clarifying shampoo, use our homemade apple cider vinegar hair rinse recipe to get your hair back in shape for a fraction of the price. ACV will not only help you get rid of buildup but it will also boost hair growth. Who wouldn’t want that?


Why Use ACV?

  • Apple cider vinegar helps to keep the pH of your hair and scalp in check.

  • ACV flattens and shuts the hair cuticle by reducing the pH of your scalp.

  • Apple cider vinegar is inexpensive and free of preservatives and other additives that could harm your hair.
  • Apple cider vinegar cleanses and exfoliates your scalp, eliminating dead skin and product buildup that clogs your scalp’s pores.
  • Apple cider vinegar also contains nutrients that are good for your hair (vitamins B, C, and potassium).
  • By boosting blood circulation to hair follicles, apple cider vinegar promotes hair growth.

This makes your hair brighter, less frizzy, less prone to breakage, and more hydrated, as well as smoother and easier to untangle. While ACV will not reduce your hair’s natural porosity or repair holes in the cuticle layer caused by heat or chemical damage, it will flatten the hair cuticle, which will help to mitigate the effects of high porosity hair.

Apple cider vinegar maintains the hair and scalp healthy by preventing fungal and bacterial growth. Because bacteria is often the underlying cause of dandruff and hair loss, it is anti-inflammatory and can assist.

Because it doesn’t weigh down strands like silicone-based conditioners, apple cider vinegar can also help with volume and curl definition.

How to Apply Apple Cider Vinegar to your Hair?

First you need to dilute with water as mentioned above. We recommend diluting it with about five parts water to one part vinegar and put it in a spray bottle 

Once your hair is washed with your favorite sulfate free shampoo, use your apple cider vinegar and water mixture to saturate your entire scalp equally. Work the product into every strand of your hair and massage your scalp with your fingers. Allow the product to sit for three to five minutes after thoroughly working it into your hair. After allowing the product to rest in your hair for three to five minutes, rinse it out thoroughly with cool water. After rinsing your hair, use a light conditioner that won’t weigh it down too much. Finally, rinse the conditioner out of your hair until the water runs clear, ensuring that the entire product has been removed.

Dry and style your hair as usual and that is IT!! Your hair is back to life!! 



  •  “Use ACV as a shampoo substitute.” This isn’t entirely accurate. While ACV is a powerful clarifier, it does not completely cleanse your hair. Alternate ACV rinses with shampoo, or rinse your hair with ACV right after shampooing. If you’re concerned about shampoo stripping your hair, use a gentle, sulfate-free washing shampoo instead.
  1. ACV is extremely acidic for your hair and will cause damage.” If you use undiluted apple cider vinegar, this is technically correct. We don’t recommend using diluted ACV more than once a week because it’s incredibly acidic and will start degrading your hair. ACV, when  diluted with water and used on occasion is extremely good to your hair 


  1. Your hair will smell like vinegar after using ACV treatments.” This is untrue: as long as the treatment is rinsed off, your hair will smell normal.


  •  You have extremely dry Hair or your hair is colored
