How to do a Hair Rinse for Healthy Hair

Try one of these homemade hair rinses if your hair hasn’t been itself lately.

For Product Build Up:

Having textured hair means having to maintain it with lots of products. Over time, the accumulation of these hair products can cause what we call “build-up.” You might have build-up if your hair is unusually dull, or if there’s an annoying residue on your scalp and hair. To remedy this, rinse your hair with an apple cider rinse. Simply combine the ingredients at room temperature and pour them over your hair in the shower. You will need:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of apple cider vinegar

Note: Do not use this rinse if you have colored hair. And don’t worry, the smell will go away once you rinse your hair and you’ll be left with nothing but shiny, product-free hair. If you don’t have apple cider vinegar on hand or if you don’t want to buy any, try this simple baking soda rinse.

  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda
  • 1 cup of water

You can increase the amount of rinse by doubling or tripling the recipe, but the basic idea is the same. Mix the ingredients and pour them over your head!
