ACV Rinse
 
Hi Ladies,
I just started clarifying monthly with ACV rinse before my protein treatment (CJ Repair Me!). My hair was poppin'!
How often do you rinse? I use half cup ACV to 2 cups water. Is this too much?
Thanks for the input.

I've been doing acv rinses for almost a yr now. I do them every other wk when I co-wash. I do an over night DT w/coconut oil, co-wash the next day, detangle, rinse, apply acv (I have a 12oz spray bottle that I fill 1/4 of the way w/apple cider vinegar & the rest water), let sit for 15 to 20mins, rinse w/cool to cold water, then style my hair.

I have noticed less scalp irritation, flaking, buildup, defined curls & shine. As far as how much acv one should use, well that just depends on the person & their hair. While I can stand 1/4 of the bottle someone else may need way less or way more.You will have to just do some experimenting on your part and see how your hair responds. However I think its always best to start out w/a little acv &see how your hair responds, then add more if you want then vice versa.

Thanks. This is helpful.

ACV doesn't clarify.
You don't need to use that much. Try maybe a tsp (or a tbls) in a cup of water. Then just add more water if you need more rinse

I saw a recipe for one to two tablespoons acv to one cup of water. Try that.
