Default nettle rinse

I made a nettle rinse. I poured boiling water over it and added ACV. THen I put it into my scalp, but now that' it's drying, it' made my hair stiff and I have like a white producty thing going on in my hair. I don't get it because a lot of people use this as their final rinse, they say they don't need conditioner, and their hair is soft and shiny. So where did I go wrong???

mmm thats strange, i was doing nettle rinses once a week when i was in germany with no problems, i did it exactly like youu did it and it did make my hair nice and soft and shinny, can you use ACV with out problems?

Default what do you think

Do you think it could be from teh fact that I already had KCCC in my hair, maybe that was what got white/hard?? I would like to use it daily, do you think a nettle rinse with ACV daily would be too much?? It smells horrible, but for my dandruff/scalp health I would like to!

yea that could be it, that you had KCCC in your hair, i dont think you have to do it EVERYDAY i think every other day would be enough, as your rinsing it over, make sure that you get it on your scalp and give it a good message, not rough just gentle with your finger tips make sure you get as much in it as possible.
when i do it, after my shower i squeeze the excess water out of my hair, and plop for about 5 mins so that its not dripping. hair is like a sponge, n it can only have so much water in it, so once its not that wet it can soak more up, which makes the rinse more effective...... well thats MY theory, dont know if it helps, or if its true, but its wat i do let us know how it goes next time
