Here’s a simple trick to make your hair soft and shiny without costing you a dime: After you wash and condition your hair, rinse it in cold water. Why does it work? Because cold water has less minerals than hot water because it isn’t going through your hot water heater of hot water pipes. These both tend to have a build up of minerals in them.
Of course, if you are lucky enough to be able to collect rainwater, this is gold as a hair rinse for your hair. Rain water doesn’t have minerals in it yet, so it makes your hair very soft.
No rainwater? No problem. Buy a gallon of distilled water and use that to rinse your hair. Better yet try my extremely simple
Apple Cider Vinegar and Distilled Water Hair Rinse
- Gallon of Distilled Water
- .5 to 1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
Pour the vinegar into the Water. Use to rinse your hair after washing. Use about a cup or two. This is especially good if you have hard water or are using a natural old-fashioned shampoo like my Pine Tar Shampoo Bar, Rosemary Shampoo Bar, Strawberry Sugar Shampoo Bar or Orange Sugar Shampoo Bar.
