During my three month obsessive research period prior to doing my first big chop is when I discovered Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and all the benefits for hair. An ACV rinse is a natural, inexpensive means of adding bounce, shine, and it removes product build up from the hair and scalp.
To use this rinse, you want to dilute about a 1/4 cup of ACV with 2 cups of water and pour it on your hair from root to tip. Please make sure that you dilute the ACV. Using it straight could be too strong of a mixture for your hair. You can use this rinse after any normal wash routine. **Warning** If you have a bad habit of scratching your scalp (like myself) be warned that the ACV will work like an antiseptic (alcohol) and it will burn! You can either proceed with the rinse, which will clean the scratches, or wait until they have had some time to heal.
