Yup, I want to share yet another article I wrote for Global Couture.
The article is about Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), its properties, benefits and uses. For some of you ACV might already be part of your routine to cleanse your hair, while others use it as a final rinse to close your cuticles but did you know you can actually also make a few homemade recipes using ACV? Visit the blog and check out my article for more details!
Personally, I use it as a cleanser for my hair on a weekly basis which you can read on my blog here. I have also used it diluted with water to make a face toner but I must say my Rosewater toner (I have a video about it) is to die for…that smell :D.
Do you use ACV? If so in what way? I would love to hear from you!

I actually haven’t used ACV since i first went natural. I don’t know if i did something (very) wrong or if my hair just doesn’t like it but my hair smelled the vinegar in the worst way for weeks. I’m scared to try it again.
Did the ACV rinse make your hair feel/look different in any way e.g. dry? If it was just the smell that bothered you, do you remember how much water – ACV you used? How exactly did you use it? At first, I use to walk past family and ask them to stand next to me in case I smelt like I bathed in salad dressing LOL and they never seemed to notice any ACV smell. (I no longer ask them ;)) I generally will use 1 part ACV to 3 or even 4 parts water. Maybe on a weekend when you are not going anywhere you can try again with a very diluted mix. You can use start off with a lot more water and see how your hair feels and smells (e.g for every cup of water you could try 1 tablespoon ACV…just as a suggestion.) Thank you so much for stopping by, reading the article and commenting!
I add tea tree oil to the mix no fridge and haven’t had any problems with it. I re-used an old spray bottle to store it
Awesome! Thank you for sharing 🙂
I use it as a toner for my face mixed with green tea. I tried it for my hair, some got in my eyes and it was on fiyahhh!!! I’ll stick with the toner 🙂
Hey Maggi! Thanks for commenting 🙂 I’ve had that happen too and yes it burns! How do you store your green tea and ACV in the fridge? and how long does it last? As you can probably tell, DIY is my thing so anything new is exciting to me lol.
