Hair Care: Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse


Apple cider vinegar is pretty awesome. I recently wrote a post for Sprout Chicago that included the benefits and a recipe for an Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse. I recently made some hair rinse for myself. I have not tried it yet, but will have to wait three more weeks before I can. I'll update you then!

My blend included half chamomile, which is used for normal to fine hair, and lavender which is used for normal hair to treat dryness and dandruff.  I filled this 16 oz. jar halfway with the herbs, and then topped it off with the vinegar. I'm going to let it sit for 4 weeks, strain it, then add 1 part vinegar to 4 parts water and a couple of drops of lavender oil. 

For instructions on how to use this rinse, go here!

Ladies, for an extra added tip: mix 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar with 1 tsp. honey in 1/4 cup warm water. Use this to help treat a yeast infection, along with eliminating sugar, red meat, and oranges from your diet. A lot of yogurt and acidophilus along with doing the afore-mentioned has cleared up things for me!
