Thanks!
This is on my list of things to experiment with.

True or False? To restore shine to dull hair, rinse it in lukewarm water, douse with 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar mixed into a pint of water, then rinse it again with lukewarm water.

True. "The acid in vinegar washes away styling products that can cling to hair despite shampooing. Just be sure to dilute the vinegar in water for gentler action." Colorist Lana Gordon of the Cristophe salon in Beverly Hills seconds the doctor's opinion, but adds one caveat: Since the acid closes the cuticle of each hair strand, tresses are shinier but flatter. Inother words, you're trading a little less fullness for a little more gloss.
Hmmmmm . . . this article seems to indicate that ACV will remove styling products. Wonder if this includes silicone?

My personal experience is no, it doesn't remove 'cones.

But maybe others have different takes on this.

Less fullness, more gloss - sounds good to me, think I'll have to dig out my acv, haven't done a rinse in ages.
Thanks.

It can remove some mineral build up on hair from hard water, but cannot remove silicones and other such build up.

thanks. I didn't think it would, but the article was making me wonder.
