Achieving and keeping clean hair (as in the lightweight and bouncy kind you can't stop running your hands through) isn't always an easy feat, but experts say the secret to gunk-free (add to that nourished and strong) strands could be right in your kitchen cabinet.
"Apple cider vinegar can act as a natural clarifier for buildup or an oily scalp. It's great to use an alternative to harsh shampoos that can strip your hair from natural oils. It also leaves hair with incredible shine," says Liana Zingarino, a hairstylist at the Sergme Normant at John Frieda Salon in New York.
This is especially true in the days of dry shampoo and lived-in hair. "The cider works to remove residue from all of those styling products and impurities to make your hair feel squeaky clean," explains Giovanni Vaccaro, creative director at Glamsquad.
Read on for five shampoos and rinses that will bring your hair back to its natural — and perhaps shiniest — state.
dpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse
This vegan rinse from dpHUE is formulated with aloe vera, lavender extract, and argan oil for conditioning hair as it cleanses. It also contains a special color-locking technology to help protect and strengthen dyed hair.
