I don't know when women started using vinegar for hair purposes. Apple cider vinegar specifically has been used in traditional medicine for centuries, but whoever thought to pour it over their hair is part beauty maverick, part genius.

Of course, if you do want to take the tradition route, know this: Apple cider vinegar also has a multitude of uses, from reducing blood-sugar spikes (when you shot it back pre-meal) to making a great topping for salad or chips. Plus, there is a simple hack that ensures you won't end up smelling like your local chippy.
