HOW TO MAKE AN HERBAL APPLE CIDER VINEGAR HAIR RINSE RECIPE FOR ANY HAIR TYPE


APPLE CIDER VINEGAR HAIR BENEFITS


Apple cider vinegar is excellent for your hair and skin.  It's inexpensive and easy to find at most grocery stores, so I like recommending it in my DIY beauty recipes.

First, let's talk about raw apple cider vinegar and why I prefer it to the ACV from the store.  They are both made the same way, but you'll noticed that raw ACV has some spider web looking stuff at the bottom of the bottle.  

That's called "The Mother".  It's bacteria and enzymes that haven't been filtered out.  

You can use regular ACV for this herbal apple cider vinegar hair rinse recipe, but the raw ACV is better for your hair.

Apple cider vinegar has many benefits for your hair.  Before we discuss them, let's talk about the structure of your hair.  

There are two parts to your hair.  In the skin is a hair follicle and the shaft is what you see above the skin.  

Your skin, including your scalp, has sebaceous glands that secrete an oil called sebum.  Sebum lubricates the skin and your hair and is part of the acid mantle.  

The acid mantle is a film that protects your hair and skin.  The acid mantle is what helps the cuticle stay flat.

When the cuticle of the shaft of the hair opens, your hair is dull, prone to tangles, and looks and feels unhealthy.  A closed cuticle also prevents moisture loss, so your hair will tend to get dry if the cuticle stays open for weeks or months.

The acid mantle is important for your hair and skin, but it's easily disrupted.  It has a pH of 5, so it's just slightly acidic.  

Many hair products have a pH of 7 or higher.  This can cause the hair to be alkaline, which opens the cuticle.  This means you're likely to get dull, frizzy hair that's prone to breakage.  

Enter apple cider vinegar.

This herbal apple cider vinegar rinse helps lower the pH of your hair.  ACV has a pH of 3, so it's acidic.  When you dilute it with water, it helps the hair maintain a pH of around 5 to protect the acid mantle.  

This helps close the cuticle for smoother, shinier hair with less frizz.  

ACV also has vitamins B and C and potassium for hair health.  Another benefit is that ACV naturally has alpha-hydroxy acid to exfoliate your scalp.  This can also help remove product buildup that can weigh down the hair.  

HERBS


You can use one or more of the following herbs.  I usually just use one herb, but you can use two or three if you'd like.  I don't recommend using more than that because once you dilute it, there won't be much benefit of each herb.

LAVENDER


Lavender smells wonderful, so it helps combat the scent of the ACV.  It's also soothing for the scalp, so use it if your scalp is irritated or flaky.  It can help reduce inflammation and boost circulation for hair growth.

CALENDULA


Calendula soothes an irritated scalp, so use it if you have flakes or dandruff.  Calendula can also boost blonde tones in the hair.

ROSEMARY


Rosemary boost circulation, which can then stimulate hair growth.  It's naturally astringent, so it's great for oily hair.  

HORSETAIL


Horsetail is high in silica to strengthen each strand of hair.  Commercial products have silicone to smooth each strand of hair, and silica is like a natural silicone, but it's better for your hair.  Horsetail is also high in several minerals and vitamins for softer hair.

ESSENTIAL OILS

Adding essential oils to your herbal apple cider vinegar hair rinse recipe is optional.  They can help combat the smell of the ACV and add their own unique properties, so you may want to add them.  You can add one or more essential oils, depending on your hair needs.

LAVENDER 


Like the herb, lavender essential oil can also help promote hair health.  It's said to boost the rate at which hair grows.  It's also naturally antibacterial for your scalp health.

TEA TREE OIL


Tea tree oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal to treat the scalp.  It's said to help boost hair growth and is effective for hair growth.  

PEPPERMINT


Peppermint essential oil is a great one to use for your hair.  It smells great, and it boosts circulation to the scalp.  This can help promote hair growth for thicker hair.

ROSEMARY


Rosemary essential oil is said to boost cellular generation.  It smells wonderful when mixed with peppermint.  

CLARY SAGE


Clary sage essential oil can help make hair grow faster. It can also make hair stronger for less breakage.

YLANG YLANG


Ylang ylang essential oil is great for dry scalps, but don't use it if you have an oily scalp.  It can boost oil production, which can reduce breakage if you have a dry scalp.

CEDARWOOD

INGREDIENTS AND SUPPLIES


DIRECTIONS


STEP #1


Put the herbs in a mason jar.  Cover with the apple cider vinegar.  Cover with a lid.

STEP #2


Gently shake the jar to stir.  Set the jar in a cool, dark place for two weeks.  Shake it gently every day to mix the herbs and ACV.

STEP #3


Use cheesecloth to strain out the herbs and discard them.  Save the herbal infused ACV for the next step.  

STEP #4


To make the ACV rinse, combine 1/4 cup herbal infused ACV and 1 cup of distilled water for oily hair.  Use 1/8 cup herbal infused ACV and 1 cup of water for dry or normal hair.  

Combine 1 cup of the ACV herbal mixture and up to 20 drops of essential oils in a spray bottle.  Shake well.  

Normally, I don't recommend using plastic bottles, but I did link to them for this recipe.  I use this in the shower, and I don't want glass in the shower in case it falls.

HOW TO USE YOUR HERBAL APPLE CIDER VINEGAR RINSE RECIPE


There are two ways to use your herbal ACV rinse recipe.  You can spray it on your hair after washing and conditioning and let it sit for 2 minutes before rinsing.  

I usually spray it on my towel dried hair after washing and conditioning and leave it in my hair.  The ACV smell goes away quickly, so you won't smell like a salad for long. 

Use this herbal hair rinse recipes once or twice a week to smoother and softer hair.  If you use it more often than that, it can be overly drying for your hair and scalp.
