Should you deep condition before doing an acv rinse?

Okay so I couldnt find where I read it but I read somewhere that you are supposed to leave the apple cider vinegar in your hair and not rinse it out. this is after a baking soda cleanse of course. I have been rinsing mine out this whole time. smh.

My question is in reference to deep conditioning. I have to rinse out my deep conditioner. So should I deep condition after doing the bs cleanse, then do the acv rinse last after i rinse out my conditioner?

hopefully someone can help me!

oh also does anyone know if it is safe to add baking soda to protein conditioners?

Yikes, ladies feel free to correct me but I wouldn't leave ACV in my hair...I pour it in, leave on for about 30 min, then rinse and do a cowash. The smell is just too gross for me to leave that in! I can't walk around smelling like salt and vinegar chips...

I use Adiva ACV Clarifying Herbal Rinse. I do it before conditioning since it says it's a clarifier. I wouldn't want to strip the conditioners from my hair.

I don't usually do acv rinses, but when I do I mix very little with a bunch of water (like 1 tbls acv and 1000ml hibiscus tea--I cannot stand the smell of acv) and pour it over my hair after rinsing DC out. Then do a final cool rinse

ACV is really not a clarifier (i.e., it will not remove buildup, silicones that have dried on your hair (like an SLS clarifier or Baking soda). It can remove residue from the shampoo that you JUST used in your wash if it wasn't rinsed out properly and minerals from hard water that you just used. It also does lower the pH of your hair and helps close the cuticle for better moisture retention.

I would not add BS to a protein conditioner. When I need to clarify, I use BS in a rinse (2 cups warm/hot water, 1tbls BS) pour it over, rub roots/scalp and smooth through hair, let sit while I shower then rinse after. Follow with DC (not necessary to shampoo after) and then acv

HTH
I use a shampoo bar then DC but I use ACV after my shampoo. I've heard it helps restore the hair's pH. I dilute it 1:4/ ACV:water but I leave it in. I usually follow the rinse with a DC. I deal with the ACV smell until I rinse my DC but it doesnt linger after that.

Supopsedly, the ACV smell completely disappears once the hair is dry. Also, my leave-in and sealants cover any lingering smell when I apply those immediately after.

Correct me if I'm wrong also but doing a ACV and baking soda treatment is kinda extreme, the baking soda treatment will remove all build up.

I wouldn't suggest leaving the ACV in your hair, when I do one, its usually a couple tbs in a large glass of water, and I cowash then pour that on, let it set for a couple minutes, rinse and cowash again.
