Hi lynley. I used BS/ACV, then switched to just ACV and it worked for a while, but as my hair is getting longer it gets extremely tangly so I just started using conditioner again last week. I think my best bet is to not use shampoo or conditioner on my scalp, and use it from the ears down- however it starts to become an issue when I plop my hair. I am also starting to use more products in my hair and ACV really helps with the build up. Also this method can get quite harsh if you do it too much. I would reccomend adding BS to your co wash as a clarifying cowash and see what that does for you. Keep me updated as I would love to hear your progress. Good Luck!
