Can someone tell my why some do ACV rinse and or Honey rinse? What is the results from doing either?

How to mix and use them as well.
I use ACV for shine, but I read it also removes build-up (1 or 2 ts in a bottle filled with cold water, I let it stay on my hair for a few minutes). I use honey for lightening my hair (mixing 1/2 honey, with 1/2 two conditioners) (It needs to stay long on your hair to work, I usually leave it in when I go to sleep) It's also conditioning, I read that some use it as a rinse.

I love HONEY in my condish (not co-wash) and as a final rinse, it eliminates the need for a leave in condish for me. It improves manageability and enhances wave pattern right up to the roots!

Wurly, fine, thin, moderately to heavily porous. Mod CG.

ACV is like a weekly refresher for me - brings on shine, bounce and my hair feels "lighter".

I use a small dab of honey mixed with each handful of rinse out I put in. It makes my hair clump better and adds some shine (its hard to tell, my hair is pretty shiny anyway), -- It also has a subtle lightening affect that works well with my red highlights (FYI - i dont leave it on long; just the normal time you would leave in yer rinse out)

ACV is acidic, and closes the hair cuticle. It's important to follow a baking soda (an alkaline, which opens the cuticle) clarification with ACV.

Honey is a humectant, which helps "draw in" moisture.

HTH!

2C/3A, slightly past BSL.
I use honey mixed with some condish as a detangle and a frizz helper. to much of a good thing leads to cement I recently learned though...

acv I used once and my hair smelled like long john silvers and i regret to say I have not tried again my nose has its limits.

ratio in the summer was about 1/4-1/2 t in my condish, I stopped this in the Fall and only do a Honey rinse with about 1/2 t in 1C warm water.

I love what apple cider vinegar can do to your hair, but just be careful not to overdo it. I went a bit nuts a while ago, and I was rinsing my hair with this stuff every other day! Stupid, I know! The results were just so awesome, I didn't want to stop. Well, after a while my hair went on strike, and it wasn't holding the curl like it used to. I had to wait weeks for it to get back to normal. It was awful!
