Hi Marialyn,

Since I'm not familiar with cane vinegar, I looked it up on the Internet. It sounds as though it's similar to rice vinegar. If so, it should work fine as a hair rinse.

I believe the purpose of a vinegar hair rinse is to bring the hair back to its natural acid balance. Previously, I used lemon juice as a hair rinse, but vinegar is cheaper, so I've switched to that.

I have dry hair but an oily scalp, and I've been very happy with how my scalp and hair feel after using my vinegar rinse. Both feel very clean.

As a personal preference, I use distilled (also called white) vinegar as a hair rinse, instead of apple cider vinegar. I mix one part of vinegar with three or four parts of water.

Hope this helps!

Dottie

Yes you can, but I like apple cider vinegar better.

Dottie, I was also considering trying a vinegar rinse, mainly as a treatment for an itchy, eczema-ridden scalp. I'll try your 1:3 or 1:4 ratio instead of the 1:2 ratio I was considering, thanks for answering a question I hadn't asked yet. :D
