Yes, you can do this as vinegar is very known to make your hair shiny, lighter, and more manageable. Even if you use this after a relaxer, it won't really affect its effects negatively. However, keep in mind that the smell of the vinegar may linger for a long time. Therefore, you may not want to use it when you are about to go outside or go to work. It may be best to use it at night, especially when you still intend to wash your hair again in the morning before going out.

Yes, you can use any shampoo to rinse off the remaining chemicals of your relaxer. It would be best to select shampoo that is not very strong, so that you won't also affect the quality of relaxing on your hair.

There are types of shampoo that are intended for chemically treated hair, such as those for colored hair. Those types are better options.
