How to use ACV for hair conditioning

By Glowpink Staff   

Professional conditioner is generally very expensive but now you don’t have to spend a single penny on them. You can easily replace your conditioner by apple cider vinegar and you will get the same results. The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar will remove residue from product buildup and help you get shiny, lustrous locks. Along with that, I am also listing down DIY Apple cider vinegar shampoo and conditioner recipes that will give you shiny, bouncy and lustrous tresses at home.

ACV for hair


How to use ACV on hair

  • Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 1–3 parts water.
  • This ratio varies for each person.
  • I have no idea how much difference the strength of the solution actually makes, so I encourage you to test and find out the best solution for yourself and your water hardness.
  • Remember the quantity of water should be at least equal to vinegar or more.
  • After washing and rinsing your hair, as usual, pour the solution over your hair and wait for a couple of minutes.
  • Avoid getting it in your eye. If you have a spray bottle, that might come in handy because it allows even and sparing application.
  • I’ve also noticed that the hair is easier to comb afterward if I spray the solution on towel-dry hair and comb it through.

Why should you use Apple cider vinegar on your hair

  • It makes your tresses shinier. If you travel often, then your hair must have lost all the shine and luster and salon treatments are time consuming and pricy. If you want an easy solution to this problem, the simply use apple cider vinegar conditioner to restore the lost shine and beauty.
  • Removes excess product build-up. It is one of the main reasons why your hair follicles get clogged up and you need to clear it off to speed up the process of hair growth.
  • Helps to deal with the problem of a receding hairline. If you are suffering from hair loss then look no further and use apple cider vinegar infused products to get the best results.
