How do you do that? Do you notice any differences between that and the curlaway?

I tried an ACV rinse once, but it made my scalp sting and burn badly... so I just chalked it up to my inexperience, and started using curlaway.

I'd really like to hear what you did and how you did it. & yes, my hair is also shinier, detangled and softer!

Blessings!
?...were you scratching your scalp alot in the days prior to/day of doing the ACV treatment? I only ask bc I have been doing ACV rinses since month 3 of my journey and never had the rinse sting until the other day...& this was the only time I was scratching prior to ( I went a tad longer than my week washing deadline and my scalp told on me!)doing one. However the results were still great!

I know you didn't ask me how I do mine but I thought I'd throw my 2cents in lol. I try to keep my hair reggie as simple as possible. So I just use braggs organic acv and pour it into a spray bottle (you know the actual ones that have a pump spray handle) & cover it about a 1/4 of the way. Then I fill the rest of the way w/water, give a shake and spray on my hair AFTER I wash, condish, detangle & deep treat & let it sit on my hair for 10 to 20mins. I then rinse w/cool water & I'm done.

My hair is always easier to detangle & has a natural shine to it & the curls are always more defined. I do this routine every other week after I co-wash. I also noticed that compared to the beginning of my HHJ when my hair used to itch all the time, the only time my hair begins to itch is when go over my week washing mark which I very rarely do.

HTH
LOL, okay so that's what it was! So maybe that was just me scratching my scalp too much. Also, the time I used the acv, I didn't mix it with as much water as you did (). I think I can say I learned something new today!

my ACV treatment is to mix 1/4 cup raw organic ACV with 1/4 cup of water. then i add 1 1/3 tbsp of pure corn flour (also called corn starch). mix. heat for one minute to thicken it to a conditioner like consistency. i coated all of my hair with it. waited 10-20 mins then rinsed with cool water. put conditioner in my hair for 5 mins then rinsed with cool water, to keep hair soft. i like this because it makes my hair soft, shiny and detangled.

however i think curlaway works better than ACV. But the ACV treatment takes less time & is cheaper.

i alternate DC treatments with curlaway/ACV treatments. some people DC after an ACV treatment.

my 3c hair is more obvious now than it used to be before using these products.

Thanks to both of you for your responses. I think the curlaway is great and as soon as I can fit it into my budget again, I just might. But the acv is definitely cheaper. I posted in my blog about this video on Youtube where I believe the poster used the acv pretty much the same way you all do -- Curlaway Update and ACV Video! | Crown MB

Also, I haven't had much luck trying to google 'peg 400 monostearate', which is one of the ingredients in curlaway, but I'm torn because it doesnt seem too harmful, but it might not be a good look healthwise, so now it's off to get a spray bottle. Yeah!

Blessings!
