ok this may sound weird to most of you...but a vinegar hair rinse is reaaalllyyy good for your hair!
Its a great detangler, removes scaly build up on scalp and hair cuticles (especially from hair shampoos, conditioners and leave in treatments), and leaves your hair silky smooth and shiny. Vinegar also has a tonic action that promote blood circulation in the small capillaries that irrigate your scalp.
But doesn't vinegar smell like stinky socks??!!?? Well, it may smell bad initially, but I PROMISE YOU that the smell COMPLETELY disappears as your hair dries....I SWEAR IT!!!
You can use plain white vinegar, but of course the natural apple cider vinegar is the favourite choice for many.
You won't need to pour a whole bottle over your head, just about half a cup in half a pail of water is all you need! Do this after your shampoo, and no hair conditioner is required.
And you can add a few drops of essential oils, like lavender, tea tree or rosemary, etc, that makes it smell a bit more tolerable and is also good for your hair and scalp.
After the vinegar hair rinse, you can dry your as normal, or rinse a bit with water (although you will want some of the vinegar rinse in your hair still for its superb all-natural detangling effect).
A vinegar hair rinse done once a week, or once in 2 weeks will keep your hair and scalp clean and healthy....and of course smooth and shiny!
