For about a month now I have been using a vinegar rinse instead of commercial conditioner. Using the ratio recommended on the lovely blog SimpleUp* (1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to one cup of water) I pour it over my hair after I’ve rinsed and/or washed (shocker: I don’t wash my hair every day) and that’s that. I pour it on, smooth it through, and move on. No rinsing, no nothing. The smell disappears as my hair dries and when it’s dry you can’t tell that I didn’t spend ten minutes fiddling with expensive creams and whatnot.
