ACV rinses do not remove sillicones. If you use non water soluble silicones, you need a sulfate poo or a low poo containing Cocamidopropyl Betaine or Cocoabetaine for cone removal. If the silicones are water soluble (PEG or PPG in front of the name), then you can remove them via cowashing.

What ACV rinses do accomplish is closing the cuticle back down after one has applied something with basic pH (like a baking soda clarification or a shampoo bar) that opens up the cuticle. It also helps to remove product buildup and can help to remove mineral deposits from hard water. I do one weekly and it eliminates any scalp itch I have as well as leaving my hair shiny and feeling clean but not stripped.
