This was a total accident—I was just looking for a way to cover up some of the vinegar-y scent of my apple cider vinegar hair rinse. All I did was load it up with some pink grapefruit essential oil, using a bit of solubilizer to help things emulsify. After my hair dried, I was pleasantly surprised to find it was really, really shiny! Like glass! Awesome!


As a small caution; these is a chance this will cause your hair to lighten a bit, as grapefruit essential oil will increase the photo sensitivity of your hair, making it more susceptible to sun bleaching. If you’re concerned about it, be sure to give your hair a good, thorough rinse with water after using the Grapefruit/ACV rinse.


Super Shiny ACV Hair Rinse

½ cup apple cider vinegar
1½ cups water
1½ tsp solubilizer
1¼ tsp pink grapefruit essential oil

Swish the grapefruit essential oil and solubilizer together in the bottom of a 500mL squeeze bottle.

Add a bit of water and swish/shake to mix.

Add the rest of the water and the vinegar, shake to combine.

To use, rinse the hair with about half a cup of the mixture after shampooing. Rinse out and you’re done! Enjoy the grapefruity scent and your super shiny hair!
