Apple cider vinegar is not only a kitchen stable, but it can also work as an all-natural gloss booster and hair conditioner. It can help soften the hair, clarify the strands, and balance pH levels. To use apple cider vinegar for your hair care routine, you first need to avoid using conditioner when shampooing your hair. Instead, mix water with apple cider vinegar and pour the solution onto your head. Comb the hair thoroughly and let it sit for at least 5 minutes before rinsing with cold water. Once the solution dries, your hair will look shiny without the smell of vinegar.
