Herbal Hair Vinegar Rinse

This is how I make my herbal rinses. Research the herbs to find the ones for your hair type or problems. 

Infused Vinegar Herbal Hair Vinegar Rinse

Vinegar is beneficial for oily hair, itchy scalp, dandruff, dull hair and build-up.

: Place approximately ¾ cup of herbs in a glass jar. Cover with 2 cups of organic apple cider vinegar (ACV). Steep this mixture in a tightly closed jar in the refrigerator or in a dark, cool place for two weeks. Shake the jar daily. Once infused, strain out the herbs.

If you don't want to wait two weeks, speed up infusion by gently warming the vinegar before pouring over herbs. "Steep" for a few days! Refrigerate up to 6 months. (I always leave about a weeks worth in my shower!)

You can make a one time application using 3 to 5 tablespoons of herbs in 1 cup of organic ACV.

Application Method 1: 
Apply 1-2 tablespoons of herbal infused vinegar to damp hair and scalp. Massage thoroughly and rinse out with water.

Application Method 2:  
Dilute 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of the herbal vinegar in 1 cup of water. Rinse through wet hair after shampooing and massage thoroughly. Rinse with cool water or, for extra conditioning benefits, just leave it in and towel dry hair. The vinegar scent will disappear as your hair dries.
