Default ACV Rinse...help?

Hello

I'm rather new, and just confused on how often most people do an ACV rinse.. I've been CG for a little over a week now and LOVE it so far! Anyways, I've read different things in different places and was just wondering how often you do an ACV rinse.. thanks guys

I do some sort of acidic treatment about once every week. Sometimes an ACV rinse, sometimes lemon juice in the conditioner. I think I can get away with it more frequently because my hair is high porosity.

I do ACV rinse almost everytime I wash my hair. Except when I'm really in a hurry. It makes such a difference.

How often do you wash your hair? Cowash or shampoo?

Every other day except once a week, I let it relax for 2 days and just put it in a bun. So it's about 3 times a week. I cowash, then follow with ACV rinse then condition.

Thanks a bunch! Didn't take toooo long, just a couple of hours. I was writing out my steps when I tried CG again and was like dangit, I forgot what all this means! I had a paper due the next day, so my lack of desire to write it contributed to the process

I have fine/normal hair, normal porosity and medium density.
I do an ACV rinse once a week after using a shampoo bar.
I find it can be drying. If I don't use a richer conditioner after the rinse, my hair is like straw.
I need to experiment with using a drop in my conditioner to balance.

Just fyi, your hair will rebel. It's normal. My first 2 weeks of CG was great. Then I struggled with my hair... now it's good.

I've heard it can take up to six weeks to adjust. Stick with it! Good luck and post pics.
