Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse is a great treatment for natural hair. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has many benefits for in and outside the body. Some of those benefits for hair are: balancing hair and scalp pH, removing product buildup, treating dandruff and hair loss.
Hair is on the mildly acidic side of the pH scale and has an ideal pH of 4.5 to 5.5, which is close to that of an apple cider vinegar rinse (pH 2.9).
Many products are strongly alkaline or have a pH of 8 or more. Rinsing with apple cider vinegar will help balance the pH of your hair and remove the buildup that can result from the use of these styling products and inexpensive shampoos. Rinsing closes the hair cuticle which cover and protect the surface of each hair shaft. Closed hair cuticles results in shinier, smoother and easier to manage hair.
Don’t worry about the slight vinegar smell you will notice after rinsing. It will disappear completely as your hair dries.
