If you’ve read my blog post about transitioning to using a shampoo bar instead of a conventional shampoo, then you know that my hair felt so weird after the first time I tried it. After that first time I did some research on how to make the transition period easier, which resulted in that blog post. And one of the tips that I found was to use an Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) hair rinse after you’ve used your shampoo bar, as kind of a ‘conditioner’ for your hair. And, oh my, it helps! My hair doesn’t feel dry after using the shampoo bar any longer as long as I finish off with an Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse.
I just take around 1/3 cup of organic Apple Cider Vinegar (I use this one*) and then fill the rest of the cup up with water. Then I pour this over my hair after I’ve finished using my shampoo bar and rinsed that out. I let it sit for about 3 minutes and then wash it out.
My hair is still adjusting to the shampoo bar, but this method seriously helps a lot – and, I’ve also found that there are quiet a few benefits to using an Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse!
Benefits of using Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse:
– it functions as a natural detangler
– it is antibacterial and great for your scalp
– it adds shine to your hair
– it stimulates hair growth and prevent hair loss
– it prevents split ends
