Nourish Your Roots
• NOURISH YOUR ROOTS ~ Wildcrafted Herbal ACV Hair Rinse Concentrate •
*This listing is for one 4oz glass recyclable bottle.
Hair is sacred medicine. It is the extension of ourselves, our ancestors. We must nourish our hair just as we nourish the rest our mind & body.
The Brew: I’m so happy to finally restock this beloved hair ally! What I use in place of traditional shampoo. (I use the Roots of Sif and Odin as my conditioner) This 4oz herbal hair rinse concentrate is a rich, nourishing blend of hair-specific allies, all known for their innate abilities to help strengthen, thicken and encourage hair growth, heal & hydrate the scalp, reduce frizz, increase circulation & cell regeneration while enhancing the hairs natural shine & reducing dandruff. The aromatics of the allies used balances out the scent of ACV, making this rinse smell quite divine. Since she is a concentrate (you use a small amount into cups of water) this bottle can end up becoming months worth of hair rinses!
All the herbs used have been ritually hand harvested by me along with the moon phases of Spring & Summer. From Horsetail harvested along the ocean, to Stinging Nettles & Lavender harvested on the mountains, to Rosemary, Hibiscus & Basil gathered from my organic garden.
Apple Cider Vinegar is the base of this concentrate, and is a wonderful hair tonic in her ability to restore the scalps natural oils & pH while increasing blood circulation to the hair follicles. She helps close the numerous cuticle scales which cover & protect the surface of the hair shaft, making hair smoother so it reflects more light which increases shine. The natural anti-bacterial & anti-fungal properties of ACV helps combat scalp infections & reduces dandruff. She’s anti-inflammatory, helping to clarify & exfoliate the scalp, removing dead skin as well as pore-blocking buildup.
I personally wash my hair only once a week and I use this rinse every other week but sometimes changes according to my cycle and the season. More details on recommended usage is on the listing and bottle label 🌱
🔻The sulfates, chemicals & binders in traditional S&C strip our scalp of its natural oils, damaging our hair. The chemicals can also leach into our brain, potentially harming health & the process of making them harms the environment. Wherever you’re at, I hope this ACV rinse helps support you & your hair journey. Can use the rinse alone, or at the end of normal washing routine!
Ingredients: Wildcrafted PNW Stinging Nettles, Horsetail, Rosemary, Basil, Lavender & Hibiscus infused in Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.
🌿 Stinging Nettles ~ Nettles is a superfood with a powerful affinity for the hair. Her high iron and silica content really excels at helping encourage re-growth and combatting hair loss. I’ve been using nettles on my hair for years and have seen an incredible difference in my hair volume and texture. She helps reduce inflammation of the scalp through her high mineral and vitamin content, making strands shinier, fuller and thicker. Her flavonoids and phenols work as a powerful antioxidant, ridding free radicals and healing damaged hair strands, roots and follicle.
🌿 Horsetail ~ Horsetail is an incredible prehistoric plant - referred to as a “living fossil” dating back over 400 million years ago. Being such an ancient plant used in virtually every culture, she has the ability to really pull up all the minerals and healing energy of the earth, making her extremely nourishing and nutritive-dense. As a Saturn-ruling plant, she pulls up the fire power of the earth, energetically bringing you ancient prehistoric healing, wisdom and transformation of ancestors and Earth. Horsetail is extremely mineral rich & contains high levels of silica – making her amazing medicine for helping hair grow faster and stronger while helping reduce dandruff. Her antioxidants and ability to improve blood circulation helps restore and rebuild thinning hair, leading to healthier hair follicles. Vinegars are the best ways to infuse fresh mineral rich plants such as horsetail because it has the ability to pull out all of the minerals and nourishment she has to offer. I harvested the horsetail I used in this hair rinse fresh along the Oregon Coast, so she is filled with the deep nourishing ancient minerals of both Sea and Earth.
🌿 Rosemary ~ Amongst her many affinities, she's known for her hair-specific properties. She is anti-inflammatory with an ability to increase blood circulation which stimulates the hair follicle. She also improves cell regeneration, allowing new hair growth while reducing hair loss. Her antibacterial qualities gently cleanses the hair, relieving the scalp from dry, flaky dandruff and irritation. She leaves your scalp hydrated and makes your hair soft and shiny.
🌿 Hibiscus ~ this stunning ally does an amazing job at combating premature hair loss and fall out. She is rich in vitamins and amino acids, improving blood circulation and stimulating the scalp which increases hair growth. She helps strengthen hair elasticity resulting in less breakage which encourages hair to grow longer, fuller. Hibiscus is a stunning red color which in the very small amount added to this ACV concentrate should not dye hair, though she is often utilized to encourage a red tint. You can use this concentrate straight and leave her on very light hair in order to achieve a rinse, though I do recommend mixing this concentrate with water unless your hair is used to straight ACV applications.
🌿 Basil ~ A beautiful hair ally, with her ability to stimulate the hair follicles & improve the circulation of the scalp, helping to promote the production of new healthy hair. She also has a plethora of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal and antioxidant properties which is incredibly nourishing for your scalp and brain health (yes, what you put on your head effects your brain). These properties also help reduce swelling, redness and irritation on your scalp and helping bring balance to your natural pH.
🌿 Lavender ~ We all know the smell of this lady alone is so healing, making your hair washing experience luxurious and calming. Her sooting nature also reduces the stress hormone that often results in hair loss. She is also an amazing hair ally. She is extremely antimicrobial, allowing her to help prevent dandruff, inflammation, bacteria and fungi related to buildup on the scalp and relieving itch and irritation. She brings moisture to the scalp, helping stimulate hair growth and increases cell regeneration.
Wise Folk Way: **This formula is a concentrate** which means you dilute portions of it into filtered/spring water and it can last up to months depending on how much your hair is wanting to be rinsed with it.
I personally wash my hair only once a week and I use this rinse every other week (twice a month) ranging from 1 tbsp - 1 oz of the concentrate in at least 4 cups of water. I adjust ratio depending on my moon cycle and the season. I have hip length wavy hair and I find this ratio works wonderful for me!
Also remember to tilt your head back and not get the rinse into your eyes as ACV can burn!

This ACV herbal rinse is fantastic! I really love that this bottle will last a long while as very little goes a long way. My curly hair has truly never felt so soft, clean, and nourished as it has with this rinse alongside a few drops of the Roots of Sif & Odin afterwards for further loving hair care <3
