Final Rinse: Closing the Hair Cuticle
After shampooing and conditioning your hair, it is time for the final rinse. This step is important because it closes the cuticle (the outermost layer of the hair shaft) of your hair.
Let's get into it...
Have you ever wondered how to get your hair shiny and smooth? The key is in the final rinse! Adding a dilute solution of apple cider vinegar to your final rinse will help to close the hair cuticle, resulting in shinier, healthier looking hair. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a natural acid, which helps to neutralize the alkaline residue left behind by shampoos and conditioners.
To use ACV as a final rinse, add 1/4 cup of vinegar to a cup of water.
After rinsing the conditioner from your hair with cool water, spray the ACV solution from roots to ends and then rinse out with cool water. You can do this after each shampoo and conditioning session. So, if you're looking for shinier, healthier hair, try using apple cider vinegar as a final rinse!
