Apple Cider Vinegar Treatment
Apple cider vinegar has another use other than being the partner of bentonite clay masks—it can be used on your hair, too! Having a weekly ACV rinse will really help to deeply cleanse and detangle your strands.
For the mixture, you will need one cup of water and four tablespoons of ACV. Pour the concoction into a spray bottle and give it a good shake. Then, after your bath, towel-dry your hair and spritz the treatment from roots to ends. Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing off. According to Mark, doing this one to two times a week will help soothe your scalp and leave your hair bouncy and soft.GetMarqedatHome Episode 3 : DIY Vinegar treatment
