Looking better but still crazy

So I officially gave up my shampoo today. I did an ac vinager wash and was so happy with how soft my hair is. Once upon a time I used to ac vinager wash regularly. I didn't realize that my curls started looking drab and lame because I had started using a sulfate shampoo instead of ac vinegar. Those shabby looking girls is what drove me to straighten my waves for years. Just for fun I added a comparison from this past Thursday and today. Thursday I had washed my hair with harsh sulfate shampoo and used Curly Sexy Hair. Today is the picture on the right. It has simply been washed with ac vinager. Yay!! Now I just need products that work with it. I think I'm pretty medium across the board, maybe a little more heavy on the dense side.

I'm wondering about this vinegar wash... does it actually cleanse your hair and scalp?

What is the advantage over gentle low-pooing or cowashing?
fine - normal porosity*?- medium density - normal elasticity. Hard water. SoCal.
*Used to be low-porosity, but I lightened my hair 1-2 shades, so I may be normal-porosity now.

New climate! Current favorites:
Low-poo: CJ Gentle Cleansing Shampoo, Giovanni SaS
RO: V05 Kiwi Lime
Styler: UFD CM (old formula), FSG + CNPF
PT: CJ Repair Me, IAgirl's gelatine

Experimenting with: JC Confident Coils, JC Rockin Ringlets, CJ CIAB, gelatin gel

iherb discount code: CFN646

How effective it is to cleanse really depends on technique, if you use any other products, how thick your sebum is and how much you produce - some people can get a decent cleanse from the massage alone. It's not that different from water only washing; there are lengthy threads on these types of methods over on the Long Hair Community forums if you are interested.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect
Considering how good it cleans everything else I imagine it cleans well. But I wouldn't want to do it too much. Makes my hair so soft I can barely do anything with it.
