7 Homemade Hair Rinses For the Smoothest, Shiniest Hair Ever

By Aniela / November 21, 2017

For those of you obsessed with getting that perfectly shiny, healthy looking hair (including myself), there really is nothing that we won't try at least once! Enter these homemade hair rinses…you're welcome! Simple, natural, and super cheap hair rinses that you can make in a snap, leaving your hair shinier, smoother, and healthier than you've seen it look in a very long time! Most of these homemade hair rinses are just a one-ingredient stop that you probably already have in your own home! Try any of these hair rinses and see the difference for yourself!

7 Homemade Hair Rinses

#1. Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse


I'm sure most of you have heard of the ACV hair rinse, but it still deserves a spot as one of the best natural hair rinses out there! ACV gets rid of the gunk leaving hair super soft and shiny! Simply mix 1/4 cup ACV with 16oz of water in a spray bottle. After shampooing and conditioning, spray all over hair and leave on for a minute or two. Rinse with water. While the smell of ACV is not pleasant, it will not linger afterwards!

#2. Beer Hair Rinse


Next time you're drinking some beer, leave some for your hair! Beer is packed full of proteins and minerals which can strengthen hair and leave it with a beautiful shine. After shampooing and conditioning, pour dark beer (let it sit at room temperature first until it is flat) onto your hair and leave on for a minute. Rinse off.

#3. Teas Hair Rinses


Tea hair rinses are just as popular as ACV rinses because they're so simple to make and they really DO leave hair sparkling! Brew a pot of strong black, green, or chamomile tea. Let it cool at room temperature and pour over damp hair. Rinse well to avoid discoloration. Tea can prevent hair breakage, fix split ends, and encourage healthy hair growth.

#4. Coca-Cola Hair Rinse


Although not a popular method for obvious reasons, there are people who swear by it! Use either flat Coca-Cola or straight out of the bottle (there are conflicting thoughts on this) and pour directly over hair. Rinse out. Apparently, Coca-Cola is not only supposed to make hair super shiny, but also give it tons of volume!

#5. Coffee Hair Rinse

Brew a cup of coffee and let it cool at room temperature. Mix the cup of coffee with about 16 oz of water and rinse hair after shampooing. Coffee not only leaves hair shiny, but also boosts brunette hair colors. Please note if you have blonde/light hair, it may darken it, so steer away from this particular hair rinse!

#6. Champagne


I'm not sure how many people would wanna pour champagne onto their heads instead of their mouths, but if you DO decide to do it, we recommend only those with light/blonde hair do it! Pour newly opened champagne directly onto shampooed hair and rinse out. The champagne will make light/blonde hues really stand out!

#7. Lemon Juice


Squeeze a few lemons until you get about 1/4 cup of lemon juice. Mix that in with 16 oz of water and pour onto freshly shampooed hair. Leave in for a minute or two and rinse out. Not only will your hair smells like lemons, but it will revive blonde locks and give it tons of shine!

Can we use lemon essential oil in water for a hair rinse, or does it have to be actual lemons?
