How to make an Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse
Apple Cider Vinegar. I'm a big fan. This stuff is awesome. Yeah, I know, it doesn't smell good, you say. I thought the same thing a few months ago. But now, I feel like my body craves it. You can Google it and read all about it's health benefits if you don't want to believe me. I like to listen to my body.
I use apple cider vinegar on my hair, on my face, for my kidneys, and to clean. I don't mind the smell anymore and it has become rather pleasant to me. I made a hair rinse that is available on my site (www.foragedfields.com) and included rosemary in it, which totally makes it amazing to smell. I'm sharing this super simple recipe in the hopes that you take your life into your own hands instead of wasting money on plastic bottles and chemicals, while lining the pockets of zillionaires.
Apple cider vinegar helps to break up kidney stones. Betcha didn't know that. I drank a few shots a while back when I was having problems and yuck. Holy crap, yuck. That is hard to swallow. I muscled it down anyway though because it wasn't as bad as the pain of stones. I regularly try and take a shot here and there so that those pesky rocks don't come back (along with drinking more water and eating properly).
Apple cider vinegar helps to balance the pH of your skin and hair. I know many of you are sissies and won't try the "no poo" method of shampooing but you should at least add this ingredient to your repertoire. Rinse that shit with this! It makes my hair shiny, lustrous, thicker and healthier. It's not hard to make either; you can do it!
Combine in a squeeze bottle (to make your life easier):
Two parts Apple Cider Vinegar
One part water
One sprig of Rosemary
Mix this up and squeeze it onto your hair/before/instead of shampooing. Rinse well and don't fret; your hair will not smell like vinegar once it is dry. If it does, what did you do, use the whole bottle? A little goes a long way, man.
Let me know your thoughts! Or questions. One of the greatest aspects about trying new things is the support that the internet can provide. And switching to all natural stuff takes guts. I applaud you.
