Apple Cider VInegar Rinse

Do not forget we have a contest going on!!!! 

So, on the Twitter I have been hearing lots about people using apple cider vinegar (or ACV) for hair rinses. They swear that it makes their hair softer and more easier to manage. I did a bit of research on the internet as well, and I just kept hearing a lot of the same thing. A lot of the articles I read talked about the hair pores closing after using the vinegar, resulting in smoother hair all around.

It sounded a bit odd to me, but what the hell. The husbands gone (he had to go to a remote site for work for a week *sniffle*), I got two feuding dogs, and I am feeling lonely. What way to perk a girl up faster than a hair/ beauty treatment?

So, I put 2/3 of a cup of acv in a squirt bottle, and diluted it with one cup of water. I leaned my head over the guest tub and began to squirt.

I would like to note here that I love salt and vinegar chips. They are MY FAVE. The salty tangy goodness is almost too much to bear. mmmm....However, I do not like smelling like a salt and vinegar chip. That stuff burned my nostrils!! argh!

I hurriedly get done dousing my hair and hop in the shower. I rinse it out, condition, shower, and get out. My hair is thick, so it takes it some time to get finished drying. Before I went to bed though there were parts that were dry though, so I felt them....and, uh, they felt the same as usual. I shrugged and (because honestly? Nothing gets in the way of me and sleep) crashed for the night.

I wake up this morning and start feeling and looking at my hair.... um, bout the same. No difference. I was tweeting about this last night and someone was nice enough to send me this link. I am inclined to agree with the blogger on this one.

Oh well, lesson learned. and luckily I did not buy a huge container of acv. However, there is enough leftover for me to henna my hair. I will be doing that when Jeff gets home, because he is lord of the pictures!

  • Thanks for stopping by! I am going to give a hand to sewing first before I jump into the world of crocheting, but when I do – I would lOVE your help!!
    Sorry the vinegar didn’t work…

  • I have thick Latina hair so I’m always trying to find ways to moisturize that don’t leave a heavy build up. Lately I’ve been happy just using my goat’s milk soap to wash my hair and then doing a ACV rinse every other hair washing. I dilute it 1:3 with water and make sure to massage it throughout. I also use a salve I made with olive oil, cocoa butter and beeswax as a leave in treatment. The ACV seems to remove build up but I don’t think it, alone, moisturizes.
