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

  • Yield : 1
  • Servings : 1
  • Prep Time : 1m
  • Cook Time : 0m
  • Ready In : 1m
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.
