CurlyCowgirly- From what I've read, be careful with that much ACV. Too much can damage your hair. I've always seen recipes with a proportion of 1 or 2 tbsp to a cup of water. The massage with oil is probably helping your scalp more than the acv, that's my guess anyway. I'm not much of an expert.

I've been kinda bad at remembering to massage my scalp w/ jojoba everyday, but I think what helped the most was to stop CO-washing and just do water rinses between low-poo's.
I'm not sure if it's something in Suave Naturals CO causing the itchiness/flakiness, but I haven't had ANY scalp issues since the day I stopped CO-washing and did the ACV/epsom rinse.

My daughter has had very stubborn acne on her forehead and I'm going to CVS to get some Nizoral since I think it might be fungal related.
