A vinegar hair rinse is a critical part of your shampoo bar regimen. You can read more about why this is so important in our article How to Use a Shampoo Bar. For this version of our rinse, we decided to package it in a convenient spray bottle that will allow you to use the rinse at full strength. Then refill your spray bottle from our Concentrate which is packaged in glass for less waste. One bottle of our Concentrate will fill one spray bottle.
Our herbal vinegar hair rinse is now made with RAW certified organic apple cider vinegar - with the mother (if you're not familiar with what that is, trust us, it is a good thing!) The vinegar is infused with nine certified organic herbs that your hair and scalp will love. Packed with trace minerals and vitamins, these herbs will nourish your scalp and strengthen your hair shaft. The acid in the vinegar removes scaly build up and residue on the scalp and hair shaft and closes the cuticles causing them to lie flat and SHINE. Vinegar also restores the natural pH balance of your scalp, preventing it from becoming dried out and itchy. Your hair will look and feel soft and healthy.
After washing your hair with one of our conditioning shampoo bars, spritz the herbal vinegar rinse all over damp hair and scalp. Do this step before washing the rest of your body so the rinse can soak in. Then rinse it out very briefly. The vinegar smell will go away as your hair dries. Use once or twice weekly—or as needed.
PLEASE NOTE: Vinegar is not a conditioner. But rinsing with apple cider vinegar will help balance the pH of your hair and will also close the numerous cuticle scales which cover and protect the surface of each hair shaft. This imparts a smoother surface which reflects more light and leaves your hair shinier, smoother and easier to manage.
Ingredients: raw organic apple cider vinegar infused with organic herbs of marshmallow root, horsetail, nettles, chamomile, lavender, comfrey, rosemary, calendula, and yarrow.

This product comes in an 8 oz. bottle with a trigger sprayer that must be unlocked before you can dispense the product. There is a little tab/button right under the sprayer, just above the part of the sprayer head which screws onto the actual bottle that needs to be pushed in. This will unlock the sprayer mechanism. Using this locking mechanism makes taking your hair rinse with you when traveling easy and hassle free, as you don't need to worry about leakage.
(Our labels currently do not indicate that this is made with organic apple cider vinegar, but it is the exact same product as our Concentrate).
15 ml samples packaged in a frosted mini-sprayer (perfect for traveling!) are available for $2.95 each.
If you can't tolerate the scent of vinegar, you may want to try one of our beautifully scented Citric Acid Rinses.
I LOVE this product for my hair - I have fine, thin hair, but it gets oily really fast if I use conditioner. But, with THIS product, I just spray my hair lightly after washing and towel-drying, and leave it in. It leaves my hair so soft and manageable. YAY!!!
The rinse did an amazing job at helping my hair transition quickly to natural shampoo bars, however...the sprayer stopped working after just one use so I had to pour some in a jar, dilute it with water and then pour over my hair. I went through the rinse VERY quickly this way...making it a super expensive purchase. I can't afford to spend $30+ a month for an ACV hair rinse...even if it works wonderfully. A+ for the rinse, D- for the sprayer. AVNS RESPONSE: Lindsay, we recently had a batch of rinses that were not completely strained. This caused some of the sprayers to clog with the excess herb still left in the rinse. All customers who contacted us about the problem were immediately shipped a brand new rinse that has been strained properly. We have many customers named "Lindsay" so I'm not sure which one you are, but we encourage folks to contact us if a product is defective.
This Vinegar hair rinse is fantastic! I read that this rinse was great and boy is it! I have dry, fine, frizzy hair which needs a lot of conditioner and product. Well I washed it with a shampoo bar and then sprayed in the rinse, which I left in and used nothing else on my hair. This NEVER happens! Love, love, love it!!
I wanted to love this. I've been using my own ACV rinse for over a year by mixing ACV with water and just pouring it over my head. The idea of adding beneficial herbs sounded really great - and it smells good! However, the sprayer literally broke into three pieces when I first tried to use it, forcing me to either pour it into a new spray bottle, or pour it over my head. This stuff is just way too expensive to pour over your head like plain ACV rinse, especially if you have thick BSL hair like mine. AVNS RESPONSE: Melissa, contact us! We'd be happy to send a replacement sprayer so you can enjoy your purchase! :)
I love the ACV rinse. I use it after one of the awesome shampoo bars, and it leaves my hair soft and shiny. I don't rinse it out, as I think it works better as a leave-in conditioner.
Great product in combination with the shampoo bars. The scent isn't as bad as I thought considering the vinegar.
I love this, my hair is happier and healthier thanks to AV shampoo bars and this rinse. I don't rinse it our and it leaves my hair shiny and lovely, my husband keeps touching my hair & loves it too. Thank you
I may be weird but I love the scent of ACV so I had no qualms about trying out this product. I found the container and sprayer genius and extremely helpful in putting it on my hair. It does what it says and I like the add bonus of the herbs added in. An added, and unexpected, bonus is that it has helped clear up the stubborn acne around my hair line and shoulders :)
I love this vinegar rinse and the spray bottle is fantastic for getting the right amount in your hair. After using one of the many fantastic shampoo bars, I will spray my hair and let it soak in. Although there is no need to rinse it out, it is my preference to rinse and follow with the Relax scent Jojoba Oil. When I first started using the shampoo bars I used the vinegar rinse daily. After a few weeks and finding the right shampoo bar for me I now use it once or twice a week. My hair is definitely happier and healthier. No more bad hair days for me!
I love that this vinegar rinse has other ingredients added to help benefit your hair and scalp and tone down the vinegar smell. Of course you can still smell the vinegar but I'd be a little concerned if I didn't! The smell does go away quickly as your hair dries! This is really convenient to use compared to me making my own rinse without all of the other great ingredients in this. It sprays a light mist and makes it easy cover your entire head.
