An Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) rinse is a great addition to any hair care regimen. Raw apple cider vinegar (ACV), packed with nutrients, can help with tangles and frizzy hair, bring back body and shine, decrease residue and clarify, stimulate the scalp, decrease dandruff, and unclog hair follicles which may help with excess shedding or hair loss. These rinses are especially helpful for those new to shampoo bars.
The versatility of vinegar has been known for thousands of years. The Babylonians were the first to flavor vinegar with herbs and spices and in 400 B.C. Hippocrates described its medicinal properties. From skin and hair care, to the kitchen and cleaning cupboard, vinegar is one of the most useful products to have in your home, especially with the addition of therapeutic and/or flavorful herbs.
Herbs are plants that contain a life force of their own. Slowly infusing herbs into oil transfers the healing properties, flavors and colors to the oil, and is one of the oldest forms of medicine-making. A simple infusion can transform an oil into a versatile ingredient to jazz up your cooking or create your own skin care products.
