After shampooing your hair, pour 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar on clean hair. Let this soak about 5 seconds, wash with clean water.
Apple cider vinegar takes all the remaining shampoo residue off hair follicles and leaves hair shiny and manageable.

Even better? Skip the shampoo all together. You can use baking soda in water to clean your hair then use the vinegar to rinse with. Use about a tablespoon of baking soda per cup of water, 2 cups worth if your hair is long. Wet hair and pour it through and massage your scalp for a minute or so. Rinse it out. Then apply a cup or two of water with a tablespoon apple cider vinegar per cup the same way, let sit in hair for a minute or two. Rinse hair and that's it. I've been poo-free for a couple of months now and my hair is gorgeous, silky and shiny, soft and bouncy. If you like you can even add some essential oil to the vinegar rinse, a drop or two is all it takes and the smell is fantastic.
It takes some getting used to. Shampoo leaves your hair "squeaky clean" because it strips out all of the natural oils in your hair. Using this method the oil is not washed away, but that's OK, this is what will make your hair gorgeous. It balances out after a while to where your scalp will only make as much oil as it needs once it realizes that you aren't washing it all away. (02/12/2010)
