Default white vinegar ?

Will this give me the same effect as Apple cider? The acidity is the same (5%) which is what I thought was the main reason for ACV.

I would like to try it because it makes me feel a little better about putting something clear on blonde hair than something orange-ish.

I've used both, and can't see any difference (other than the price!)

Me 5! I have heard that some prefer the smell of ACV, but I don't really care, myself.

And I think you are not being silly wondering about the color, I have heard of blondes getting slight red tones added from ACV but not white.

I used that yesterday for the first time and I love how my hair looks. It's shiny and soft and it was sooo easy to detangle it afterwards.

To mix a little bit with water and rinse hair with. It has a few benefits. It tightens up the cuticle so can make hair shinier. It can also be an extremely light clarifier, depending what is in the buildup. Like it won't touch silicones, but can help with silicone free conditioner buildup. It also may or may not help to preserve the color of dye.
