Vinegar rinse. With whom will it work and how to use it?
When thinking about using a vinegar rinse on your hair, there are a few things you need to know. Not every hair type will be receptive to this product.

It’s best to make a vinegar rinse right after shampooing. We often have hard water and vinegar will deal with it perfectly. Your hair will bounce back and shine beautifully. Pour the solution from the bottle over your strands under running water or immerse your head in a bowl of rinse. There is no need to worry about the hair smelling unpleasant afterwards. After drying, you won’t smell anything. If you are particularly sensitive to odors, you can rinse your hair with lukewarm water or spray a conditioner at the end of the rinse
Easy to Prepare
To prepare the rinse, you will need a jug or bowl for 1 liter of water (or a little more). The water can be boiled or mineral water. Add to it 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (wine vinegar can also be used). If you have long hair, it is better to prepare a solution for 2-3 liters, thus increasing the dose of vinegar by another tablespoon. You will be sure to have enough product for the entire length of your hair. To neutralize the smell of vinegar, you can add a few drops of peppermint or lavender scented oil to the brew. By preparing the rinse yourself, you can be sure that it does not contain any unnecessary or harmful ingredients. Most importantly, the rinse will make your hair soft, shiny and less oily
