“An apple a day, keeps the doctors away.” Apple cider vinegar is an essential in the kitchen and the bathroom cupboard. A concoction of one-fourth ACV and three-fourths water will add shine to hair by removing any residual product buildup. Pour the mixture over your hair after shampooing, massage it into your scalp, and then rinse it out. You can also leave the vinegar in under your regular conditioning treatment for an added boost.
