I thought the ACV rinse was to remove mineral build up. If its used to balance the ph, would I be able to use a ph-balanced shampoo bar without following with an acid rinse?
Because of how they are made, natural soap bars are alkaline. Hair is acid, so you need the acid rinse to restore the pH of your hair. A pH balanced bar wouldn't be acidic, either. pH might be lower, but not the same as hair.
