Herbal Hair Rinse

Sunday, 24 November 2013 08:17  by Jessica W.

Vinegar-based hair rinses remove excess buildup of hair care products, preventing hair from becoming dull and heavy with silicones and other residue. They also restore the pH balance of hair, making them great for maintaining the health of both our hair and scalp.

Many people are afraid of vinegar’s strong aroma. While it is quite potent in the shower, the smell completely vanishes by the time the hair is dry. In return, you are left with soft, silky, shiny hair.

This herbal-infused hair rinse recipe includes beneficial botanicals to improve the health of your scalp. Burdock root fights dandruff, chamomile is anti-inflammatory and soothes dry scalp, oat straw promotes softness and shine, and rosemary balances oil production.

To use this hair rinse, simply shampoo and rinse as usual. Then pour the vinegar rinse over your hair, soaking it completely. Let the rinse sit and massage it into your scalp. Rinse your hair clean.

Herb-Infused Vinegar Hair Rinse

  • 4 ounces apple cider vinegar
  • 2 ounces distilled water
  • 1 ounce rosemary hydrosol
  • 1 ounce roman chamomile hydrosol
  • ¼ teaspoon burdock root extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon oat straw extract

This recipe will keep for two months in a cool, dry place. To make a similar recipe in a pinch, use one part vinegar and one part water and use in the same way.
