For what it is worth... I rinse my hair with organic apple cider vinegar (with the mother, and sold in glass bottles); a 50/50 mixture with water. But I do not rinse it out. The vinegar odor quickly dissipates and my hair is very shiny when dry. In my experience, organic apple cider vinegar sold in plastic bottles does not produce the same results and does not smell organic.
I use ACV for everything but never, ever considered pouring it over my dry hair. After reading the posts from people who use ACV in their hair I went to the kitchen sink, more to prove that it wouldn't work for my problem. I shampooed, then poured diluted ACV over my hair and let it sit for about a minute. At this point I'm thinking it won't work because my hair felt dry when I poured the ACV solution into my hair BUT as I was rinsing I could feel my hair soften and turn silky...with nothing but water and vinegar?! I dried my hair as usual and my hair is soft and healthy with not the slightest trace of the dryness that has plagued me for 2 years. Shut up!
Apple Cider Vinegar is WONDERFUL for hair especially frizzy/curly hair. I mix 1/3 ACV or White Vinegar and 2/3 water in a bowl. First thing I do is dump this over my head. I let it sit while I wash up, rinse at the end and follow with a tad of conditioner. I have fine curly hair and its usually a hit or miss as far as how my hair day goes. I havent had a bad hair days since I started doing this. Hair is smooth, shiny, FULL and just plain gorgeous.

Can anyone tell me if adding ACV to your final rinse is ok if u just had ur hair colored and highlighted, or if one should wait for a bit. Has anyone had experience with this, please let me know asap if possible as I just had my hair done. Thank you
I just tried the Apple Cider Vinegar Rince on my hair for the first time . My hair feels much lighter and cleaner , But it burnt my forehead, so when you use it becareful not to get it on your forehead.
I started using to rinse my hair after washing and cream rinse. I have long hair from my crown about 31 inches. I use 1 cup of apple cider vinegar ever time I wash my hair, which is 3 times a week. The smell only stays for about 30 min, but my hair is so much healthier and has also grown. If I miss the vinegar rinse my hair feels flat and unclean. It also helps with the split ends. White vinegar is not to be used on your hair as it will strip the naturel oils
I rinsed with the apple cider vinegar for 4 nights in a row. My hair didn't have any build-up in sight! thanks! :)
I have been using vinegar once a week for years and years as a hair rinse. It gives my hair the perfect pH balance. As a result, at the ripe old age of 63, I have very thick, healthy, shiny hair. When I tell people about it, they think I am crazy, but it works!! I remember when I was very young, my mom would wash my hair in rain water and then rinse it with vinegar.
I use approximately 1/2 to 3/4 cup vinegar diluted with about 1/2 cup water. I shampoo and rinse first then pour on the vinegar - let it sit about a minute and then rinse out the vinegar and then shampoo again and rinse very well so there is no odor of vinegar. This was even recommended to me by a beautician once, and I hadn't even told her that I was already doing it!! The vinegar also removes all the old shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, etc. build-up in the hair.
The Apple Cider Vinegar as a conditioner was great! However, my hair smelled quite obviously of vinegar until the next time I washed it even though I rinsed it well with shampoo! I will try it again, but perhaps with less vinegar.
The vinegar cuts the minerals in your water--that's why it works. Hard minerals stick to your hair. Just try rinsing with distilled water for silky hair.
The apple cider vinegar worked very well. The only things to be watchful for: is not getting it in your eyes (becomes irritated for a couple of seconds) and being mindful in the shower where it becomes slippery on the floor. The best way I believe to use the ACV is over a sink to wash your hair, not the shower.
After being guided to use apple cider vinegar to rid Candida.. I decided to cleanse my scalp of any yeast buildup. Wow...my hair is so curly,shinny and very healthy. I will use every second week as a cleanser. Try diluting 1/2 cup of ACV with 1/2 cup warm water-pour onto scalp, then shampoo & conditioner. I have even tried it on a cotton ball to exfolliate my skin--results were "glowing skin". Buy the "unpasturized"apple cider vinegar-it is live and therefore ACTIVE.Try it - IT does work.
A friend told me that i should use ACV to help with the removal of old shampoo/conditioner as well as hair spray...i use about 1/2 cup every other day and it keeps my hair nice and soft and it really does remove hairspray!!
It works okay.

I have been using a mixture of ACV, Baking Soda, and Water for a conditioner for about a week and a half. I use about 1/4 tablespoon of BS and ACV till the bubbling stops. then I add just enough water to complete filling a small cup About 3 inches high, 1/2 full. I apply just enough of this to soak my hair ( I do this in the shower ) and rub it in with my fingertips for about 1 minute, then I rinse it out. I have had mildly itchy scalp and hair that does not obey. Now I have no more tangles, my hair does what I want, and the itchy scalp is better. It's not gone yet, but is getting less itchy. Using this small amount of ACV does not leave any smell to my hair either. Thank you so much for this site. Ed
