These beautiful sprays have the same pH value as apple cider vinegar - without the vinegar smell. In fact, we've come up with four mesmerizing scents made with therapeutic grade essential oils to tantalize the most discriminating nostrils. We've also added aloe vera to soothe and condition your scalp. Find out how and why you need an acid hair rinse in our article, How to Use a Shampoo Bar.
Lavender Mint - a sparkling blend of French lavender, rosemary, peppermint, tea tree, and clary sage.
Bay Lime - a tart and sweet (crazy good) blend of lime and bay.
Jasmine Rose - a soft, sensual blend of rose geranium, jasmine, ylang ylang, sweet orange, sandalwood, and patchouli.
Bergamot Orange - a rich citrus blend of bergamot, blood orange, and tangerine.
To Use: After washing your hair with one of your favorite shampoo bars, simply spritz all over damp hair and scalp. Rinse. Use once per week or as needed for soft, shiny hair.
Ingredients: spring water, aloe vera, essential oils, citric acid, polysorbate 20, ascorbic acid.
This product comes in an 8 oz. bottle with a trigger sprayer that must be unlocked before you can dispense the product.
15 ml samples packaged in a frosted mini-sprayer (perfect for traveling!) are now available for $2.95 each! Try them all!
Please note: according to the Deep Skin Cosmetics data base, polysorbate 20 scores a 3 on a scale of 1-10 with 1-2 being low hazard, 3-6 moderate hazard, and 7-10 high hazard. Its purpose is to enable the essential oils to be evenly distributed throughout the liquid. Without it, the oils rise to the top, and unless you vigorously shake the bottle, you will not get the benefit of the essential oils with each spray. When we had our first run of labels made, we didn't think we were going to use polysorbate 20, so we didn't include it on the label's ingredient list. We also included in the label directions the instruction to "shake well." Because labels are costly, we are going to use them until they are gone. When we reorder, we will update the information on those. In the meantime, please know that a tiny amount of this ingredient is included in your product ( <1%), and therefore you will not need to shake your bottle before using.
It's a very fine mist and so you have to try to deliberately cover all of your hair. The smell is fantastic, and it seems to work ok to seal the cuticle in my hair so it's shiny, but I notice that my hair is has more static and less body than when I use ACV, and since ACV costs a lot less I will probably not buy this again.
Leaves my hair soft and conditioned, as well as my scalp.
I really like these citric rinses. They smell good and are perfect for people with blonde hair. The ACV rinses discolor my hair. The citric makes my hair shine! Definitely recommend
I don't really care for the scent of vinegar but with my hard water I must use an acid rinse to use my shampoo bars. I decided to try this as an alternative, plus I loved the description of the scent. I have used this when I am in an area with softer water and it works great there. It is not strong enough for me to use at home though where my water is very hard. I am still giving this 5 stars because it does work great in the right conditions. My water at home is just too hard and I need something stronger.
I ordered a sample of the Lavender Mint. I'm not sure if it was working but it did always make my scalp feel very good for awhile after rinsing my hair with it. I also very much the way it made my hair smell.
Spray this on your hair once a week and your hair and scalp feel healthy with a great shine to the hair. Makes your hair look great.
I use baking soda for shampoo so I struggle with dry ends. I tried this product and WOW!! I love how clean my hair feels and it doesn't have an over powering smell, I don't feel like I have something stuck in my hair and it's smooth. Love the spray bottle, I use less and I don't have to dump it on my hair!
didn't like the lavender mint...did help get rid of a LITTLE bit of the disgusting feeling that the soap bars left on my hair. AVNS Response: From the description here, it sounds like you have hard water. That "disgusting feeling" is what I get when I try to use my bars while traveling and staying in hotels with hard water, for example. Unfortunately an acid rinse will not be able to solve that issue effectively. An acid rinse IS effective under the right conditions, and soft water or a good water filter is necessary when using shampoo bars.
I was a little skeptical of buying something before I could smell it, but the Jasmine Rose scent smells wonderful. Exactly like rose incense with a dash of jasmine. I decided to try this hair rinse because my boyfriend HATES the smell of my ACV rinse and mimes choking and dying every time I spray it on. So even though it's much more expensive to buy this, rather than make my own, I gave it a shot. It's totally worth it. Even my boyfriend says it smells good, and unlike ACV, I can still smell it in my hair after it's dried.
Since starting natural hair regimens I have used apple cider vinegar. I had not planned on switching since it is cost effective and cheaper to just use the apple cider vinegar and water, however, I decided to give this a try. I am so glad I did. So glad in fact that I ordered another bottle today. The first I used was Bay Lime. I love the smell. I also love another added benefit. You can use it as a leave in conditioner. It may be cheaper to just use apple cider vinegar, but for the scent, and shine you get from the citrus rinses, I would encourage any to try them out. I won't go back to plain ol vinegar again.
