D.I.Y. Conditioner (Apple Cider Vinegar)

  • Tip #1 – use with Bicarb shampoo
    The Apple Cider Vinegar conditioner is a great companion to the Baking Soda shampoo as the Baking Soda “opens” the cuticles and the vinegar “closes” the cuticles.
  • Tip #2 – Essential Oils
    After your shower, smooth a drop or two of essential oils on your hands, and run your fingers through ends of your hair to get that freshly-washed smell. (I use Peppermint, Lavender, or Lemon oil from DoTerra.)
  • Tip #3 – Once per week max
    With this natural alternative, it is suggested that you wash your hair just once per week, and after about 2 weeks, your body will re-adjust to normal and you will have beautiful hair.
    But for the first couple of weeks, your hair might get oilier than normal, because it is used to re-oiling after normal shampoo.
  • Tip #4 – Chlorine Filter
    It’s also recommended that you get a chlorine filter for the shower to remove even more toxins from your hair & skin.
    If you find after a few weeks, your hair has not improved, then it’s probably the quality of the water, or your diet that you need to look into.
  • Tip #5 – Squirt Bottle ideas
    Any bottle will do – an old tomato-sauce bottle, plant sprayer, old conditioner bottle, old hand-soap dispenser, etc. I use a flat plastic squirt bottle that I got from Bunnings which allows me to lay the bottle on the shower floor to “warm up” with the shower water while I shampoo (image to come).


  • Squirt Bottle
  • 2 TBSPs Apple Cider Vinegar (closes cuticles)
  • 2 Cups of Filtered Water (or Shower water)


Step 1

Put Vinegar and water into squirt bottle.

Step 2

Get into shower.

Step 3

Apply (spray) the Apple Cider mixture all over your head, try to avoid scalp.

Step 4

Concentrate on the “ends” of the hair to condition. (I usually pour the rest onto my ends).

Step 5

Leave on while you wash your body, then rinse out.
