How To: Vinegar Makes Hair Shiny

The best thing about having stylish friends is the constant flow of beauty how-to. Recently a gal pal shared that plain household vinegar can actually make haircolor treatment last longer. In addition, a gal's hair will become shinier. Being a curious little cat, I tried her method and vinegar did make my hair glossier and healthier looking.

How, you may ask?!!! Basically vinegar will smooth down hair cutical, thus lock in color and make hair glossier.

I mixed a ratio to 10:1 (shampoo:vinegar) and washed my hair as usual. You can also add vinegar to hair conditioner. Just shampoo or conditioner, there is no need to add vinegar to both. I don't know if my color treatment will last longer but will keep everyone posted. So what is your beautiful hair secret?

*Rinse your hair well because I can smell vinegar for a couple of hours after washing and drying. ~Smile!

  4. Would it work well on non-colored hair? I'm always looking for do-it-yourself hair treatments and skin treatments. I tried using coconut oil on my hair but it just made it greasy. I have used coconut milk on my hair but it didn't do anything special. I even used almond oil under my eyes for two weeks to get rid of dark circles and saw no results. I'm still looking for my magic home treatment though hehe!! I'm glad it worked for you. xo

  5. Wow good to know! Vinegar works wonder I guess - I recently learned that it works on muscle cramps. I got hurt a few months back and was having severe cramps so bad I had to go to urgent care. My mom had learned on the show "The Docotrs" that you pour vinegar onto a washcloth and apply directly to the affected area. It is amazing! The cramping stops within seconds!! It does stink though lol ;)

  13. you can also mix vinegar with water and rinse your hair with that instead of mixing it with shampoo or conditioner. Additionally, the vinegar will make your hair super soft too!
