White distilled vinegar is created by the fermentation of ethanol. A major ingredient created during this process is acetic acid, a weak acid used by cosmetics companies in many clarifying shampoos. An economical alternative to buying these shampoos is to use a white vinegar rinse you make at home.
Make a mixture of 2 cups water and 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar. Pour it into a spray bottle for easy application.
Shampoo your hair as usual. Rinse thoroughly.
Spray the water and vinegar solution on damp hair, being sure to thoroughly coat all of the strands.
Allow the solution to sit on your hair for one to two minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water.
