Hi SavyCandy, Use apple cider vinegar as a rinse once a month or once every two weeks. I put it in a spray bottle and spray it all over my hair in the shower. Then I let it soak for a couple of minutes (shave, exfoliate, etc) and then rinse it out of my hair with cold water. It should leave your hair soft and shiny. Try it out! Here's a great article on why it's beneficial for your hair: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/ingredie...And here's an article detailing the ACV rinse. http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/clarifyi...Have fun!
