DIY Hair Rinse to Remove Build-Up and for Soft and Shiny Hair

Hi reader friends! One more day until Friday, wooo!

Fitting for today, I want to share with you a DIY hair rinse that I make and use once a week on the days I shampoo my hair. Today is the day I finally get to shampooing 😀 This hair rinse leaves my scalp cleansed of buildup and my strands soft and full of shine.

Star Ingredients

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

When buying ACV, buy one with “the mother.” This means that it’s raw and from the source. The acetic acid helps remove buildup from our hair that comes from shampoo, conditioner and any other hair products we use. It’s also said to get rid of dandruff, among many other benefits that you can read here.

Rosemary Essential Oil

This is my favorite essential oil to use in my hair because it stimulates the scalp which leads to hair growth! Plus, it makes the ACV smell less like feet 😀

The Recipe


2 tablespoons ACV

2 cups distilled water (or you could just fill up the cup while in the shower, but I like how distilled water makes my hair soft!)

10 drops rosemary essential oil


I use a Pyrex cup to help me to measure. I first pour in the ACV and them the rosemary essential oil so that when I add the water, it mixes everything together without my having to use a stirrer. I dump the mixture all over my hair as the last step of my shower. I do not rinse it out. When my hair dries, I only smell a whiff of the ACV and rosemary essential oil, but that dissipates overnight!

Notes: You can use either the rosemary OR ACV in your rinse. And, of course, you can use fresh rosemary! Click here to watch a video on how to make a rosemary hair rinse.

Shampooed and air dried hair! It’s soft and shiny and my scalp isn’t itchy! 🙂

If you never tried a hair rinse, then I recommend you try this one! Let me know how it goes for you. If you’re already using a hair rinse, what do you use?
