Apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinses are one of most cost-effective and beneficial ways in existence to improve hair health. A good ACV rinse can remove product buildup, restore the pH balance of the scalp and hair, promote blood circulation in the scalp–which can stimulate new hair growth–and give the hair a soft, healthy sheen.
One of the greatest benefits to those with curly hair, however, is that an ACV rinse will shut down the hair cuticle to protect the inside of the hair shaft from damage. Acidic solutions close the cuticle, which will keep moisture inside your hair and keep prevent frizz.
For maximum benefit, use of only raw, organic and unfiltered vinegar rather than the “sparkling clear” vinegar you usually find on the grocery store shelves. When doing the rinse I also like to include additional ingredients such as aloe vera, agave nectar, essentials oils, if they are available.
Please be mindful of how acidic ACV is, and therefore this should be taken into consideration when you are introducing this method into your hair regimen. If done too often your hair shaft will begin to breakdown, ultimately causing damage. I personally feel its best to do this practice maybe once or every two months at most.
Here is my basic ACV recipe:
Mix 1 part vinegar with 2 parts water. To minimize odor, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Use as a final rinse after you shampoo.
