Vinegar home remedy for damaged-hair.

Apple cider vinegar is milder than white vinegar. Don't worry about the smell; it will diminish as your hair dries.


  • Mix one-third cup of apple cider vinegar with one quart water.
  • Rinse hair with this solution after shampooing.

Why vinegar works

Vinegar removes scaly build-up and residue from hair shafts and closes the cuticles. Vinegar has a tonic action that promotes blood circulation in the small capillaries that irrigate the skin.


Use only occasionally as overuse of vinegar can weaken the shaft. If any rash or skin irritation results, discontinue use immediately. For external use only.
