Wow. I got the sample size because I wasn’t sure how much my hair needed chelating, but the shine I got after a deep treatment with this is wild! My hair feels way softer, and seems significantly less tangly than it usually is after a wash.

I’m glad you gave it a try! I have much the same thing, it’s wild how much less my hair tangles after using it!

One of my favourite hair products! Works wonders to keep my hair healthy despite our hard water.
This actually works quite well! I live on pretty hard well water. When I was still using regular shampoo and conditioner, it wasn’t a huge deal, but now that I’ve switched to natural haircare it really makes my hair feel dry and look dull–esp with shampoo bars! This rinse helps to offset that. My water is hard enough that I use it as a rinse every time I shower, and it helps improve softness and shine.

I think I’ve left an Etsy review on citric acid before but I’ll leave one again here because it’s night and day difference (even my husband uses it). If your water is hard, no brand of shampoo or conditioner will leave your hair feeling clean and light. I shampoo, rinse, rinse with this mixture, then condition. It removes any crunchy or knotted feeling in the hair and after blow drying, my hair is very fluffy. Works for beards too!

Really enjoy this product to get the hard water buildup out of my hair, especially before dying it. Leaves my hair much softer.

I didn’t realize how much I needed this. I live in a hard water region. I know it contributes to tangles even when I use standard shampoo and conditioner. But vinegar rinses never seemed to help much with the scalp itching, dullness, or tangles. I didn’t know what to expect but this was amazing. So shiny and far fewer tangles after one deep treatment and use as a rinse after my most recent wash. The jar with a cork is adorable and I love the little spoon too. This is such a cute and useful product.
This rinse has saved my hair! I am growing my long hair since 2009. Some years ago I saw on a picture that my hair does not look good or shiny at all and I was a little shocked about the condition. I always used to rinse my hair with apple vinegar before, but since I changed to the Alluvial Rinse, my hair is looking a lot healthier and I love it. It is also very econimical because you do not need much of it with every hair wash. I love this product.

Just one treatment made a massive positive improvement to my hard water damaged hair! I didn’t know my hair could be so soft and tangle free I will certainly be adding this to my hair care routine.
I tried the geranium scent and it was lovely.

I have crazy hard water. Hoping this helps get rid of the white waxy residue hard water leaves on my hair!
