One of my favorite beauty DIYs is this Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse. It leaves my hair soft, shiny, and manageable. It’s also easy and super simple to make!
Apple Cider Vinegar is one of those products known for its all-round usefulness and versatility, and is especially good for hair. It’s acidic by nature and helps restore the hair’s natural pH, removes product residue build-up, and helps control dandruff. Hair and scalp’s pH can be thrown off by high alkaline shampoos which can cause frizzy, damaged hair and dry scalp. When Apple Cider Vinegar restores pH balance, it helps prevent hair and scalp unhealthiness. Too much product (hair spray, mousse, gel, and foam) buildup will make hair dull, limp, and lifeless.

*Rosemary essential oil promotes hair growth and thickness. It also helps treat dry scalp and dandruff. Substitute other hair-friendly essential oils if you prefer. Lavender, Clary Sage, or Cedarwood are good choices.
- Mix Apple Cider Vinegar and water together in a measuring cup.
- Add essential oil and stir.
- Pour mix into a spray bottle.
Shampoo your hair as usual. Then, spray several spurts of hair rinse on your wet hair. Run your fingers through your hair to distribute rinse thoroughly and evenly. Leave it on for 5 minutes and then rinse out. Viola!
*No need for conditioner. Hair will be soft and tangle-free. Style as usual.
Since I wash my hair about twice a week, I use a lot of cornstarch (a natural dry shampoo) and spray dry shampoo in between washings. My favorite brand is Batiste, which you can find on Amazon. This Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse is great at removing all that residue build-up. I use this rinse once a week and use regular conditioner with the other shampoos. I do have color-treated hair.
This Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse isn’t only quick and easy to make, it’s economical and very effective!
