Apple Cider Vinegar for Getting Rid of Impurities on Hair and Face

If you are suffering from weighed-down locks because of all the hair products you have been applying to your hair recently, apple cider vinegar will be your savior. That is because it is naturally clarifying, meaning it gets rid of all of the build-up on your hair. Clarifying shampoos are available in stores, but for the price, you might as well make your own for much cheaper - and knowing what you are putting onto your hair is definitely a plus!

Filsinger's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
$3.99 CAN Health Food Store
The recipe is simple: you will need 1/3 of a cup of apple cider vinegar (preferably organic) and 2/3 of a cup of water. Shampoo as usual, but instead of using conditioner, pour your mix of apple cider vinegar and water all over your hair. Leave it on your hair for 5 minutes before rinsing with cold water. That's it, it's that easy! You will be left with squeaky clean and shiny hair! I recommend doing this once a week.

Furthermore, I have been using the same mix as a facial toner, and it really does a great job of getting rid of any impurities. I apply it both morning and night on a cotton round. No need to rinse it out as it is used as a toner.

Note: The smell of apple cider vinegar can be overwhelming upon application, but the smell does not linger for long. Personally, I don't mind the smell, but even if I did, it would still be worth the suffering for the results I get lol! :P

Let me know if you try this, and how you like it! :)

  1. I tried this actually and it works pretty well! Helped control my blemishes and excess oil. Smell might take a while to get used to, but its worth it cuz its cheap and natural.

  2. Hey thanks for this! I really like the idea of make your own beauty supplies, I really need something to cleanse my hair and this looks like a great way to do it. Plus Christmas is coming so this would make a great cheap gift for the sisters!
