Well, I can't do an ACV rinse.

I have these nice shampoo bars from Chagrin Valley (Honey Butter Beer and Ayruvedic Herbs). They both worked pretty well in clarifying and cleaning my hair. I know that you have to restore the PH balance by doing a vinegar rinse, but I'm allergic to raw apples so I can't use apple cider vinegar. Would an oil rinse with olive oil be a good substitute or should I just go with white vinegar?

    Lemon juice works well also. Same way you do an acv rinse. You just need an acid to restore the pH balance.

    Lemon juice is great to use. I also read on Chagrin Valley that regular Clear Vinegar is ok, it's just recommended to use the Apple Cider Vinegar.
