Citric Acid Hair Rinse

$15.00

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. Now made with PlantaSol CCG**

Bay Lime - a tart and sweet (crazy good) blend of lime and bay. Now made with PlantaSol CCG**

Jasmine Rose - a soft, sensual blend of lavender, mandarin, geranium, marjoram sweet, frankincense, palmarosa, ylang ylang and patchouli.  (This recipe just recently changed, so unfortunately it no longer contains Jasmine. We will change the name and labels to reflect this, but for the next few batches they will still say Jasmine Rose.)

Bergamot Orange - a rich citrus blend of bergamot, orange, and tangerine. Now made with PlantaSol CCG**

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: distilled water, aloe vera, essential oils, citric acid, polysorbate 20* or plantaSol CCG**, 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!

* According to the Skin Deep 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. 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.

** A NEW UPDATE: We are currently in the process of transitioning away from Polysorbate 20 and are starting to replace it with PlantaSol CCG (INCI Name: Caprylyl Capryl Glucoside). We want to provide our customers ease in using our products while also staying as natural as possible, so we will continue to look for improvements to ingredients that bring us closer to that goal. As noted above, polysorbate 20 is rated a 3 on the Skin Deep database, which is a reasonable rating, but we found that PlantaSol CCG is rated as a 1. It is Ecocert approved and is a vegetable-derived solubilizer. Our labels will continue to say Polysorbate 20 for a while, but will be changed when we need to do a label re-order.

Citric Acid Hair Rinses
5 Stars

I don't wash my hair (except to have it cut), so I love to freshen it up with these rinses once a week.

AMAZING AS ALWAYS
5 Stars

Love love love. Literally every product from AVNS. Helps condition and leaves hair clean and soft, no nasty product build up like drugstore products. Smells great!

Citric Acid Rinse
5 Stars

I like to use this once or twice a week. It seems to improve my hairs overall health when used regularly and it smells delightful.

good...
4 Stars

I tried a sample of this.. I purchased the lavender mint. it smells good, I have used it twice so far. It is a very fine mist as others have said. I feel like I would go through this very quickly and I have pretty long hair so i'm not sure financially it is a good choice. I love the smell, I have tried vinegar before and it made my hair smell like a sour mop! so I like this product a lot. it definitely has made transitioning much better..

smells great, but doesn't work as well as hoped
3 Stars

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.

Love it
5 Stars

Leaves my hair soft and conditioned, as well as my scalp.

Citric Rinse
5 Stars

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

Jasmine Rose Smells So Good
5 Stars

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.

Smells Lovely
4 Stars

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.

Leaves Hair and Scalp Feeling Great
5 Stars

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.
