Condition Your Hair
Whether you ran out of your favorite brand or you just washed your hair au naturel with a DIY baking-soda blend, an apple-cider-vinegar-and-water rinse is a surprisingly efficient conditioner. Betsy Jabs, coauthor with her husband, Matt, of DIY Natural Household Cleaners, suggests mixing a tablespoon of vinegar with a cup of water in a clean spray bottle, shaking it up and squirting it all over your wet hair. Massage it in, let it sit for a minute or two and rinse. Your hair will be smooth and won't smell like vinegar (though you may crave a salad for lunch).
