Default Apple Cider Vinegar

So I tried an ACV rinse and now I think I might have used too much because I can still smell it. I used about 2 to 3 tablespoons for my thick hair. I washed with Burt's Bees Grapefruit and conditioned with Suave Waterlilly and Aloe. Than rinsed out the conditioner and ACV.

After that I applied FOTE AVG and L'oreal glossy curls.

Did I use too much ACV?

I'll tell you right now it's a boyfriend repellent. He doesn't like the smell of it!

You may have used too much. Next time try 3:1 ratio of water to vinegar, respectively.

I can usually smell it until my hair dries, or I rinse it out. After it dries you can't smell it at all though.

I pineappled at night and still can smell it a little bit, I think I might have used too much. However, I have cute little clumpy curls! I definitely need to take pics for later.

I have very dense hair and I use 2 TBLs of ACV with 2 cups of water. When it dries I can't smell it. Sometimes when I work out and start to sweat the smell gets revived a bit.

Some people use citric acid instead of ACV. It's a little lower on the acidic scale but there is no smell to it.

mpgirl,
Good to know.l The smell is kind of fading a bit throughout the day. I love the fact that my curls are so bouncy, shiny, and soft. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the wash or the products that I used last night or the fact that I pineappled over night.

Here's my list:
Shampoo with Burt's Bees Shiny Grapefruit
ACV rinse
Conditioner Suave Naturals Waterlily Aloe
FOTE AVG
L'oreal Glossy Curls spray gel

An ACV rinse re-balances the pH balance of the hair after shampooing and smooths the cuticles after they've been ruffled up by the surfactants in the shampoo. A smoother surface means less frizz and shinier curls.

And remember: boyfriends can be replaced- shiny, bouncy hair - you can never get enough!

He got over the smell today. It is fading some, next time I'll just not put as much of the ACV in my mix.

Yes, but a good man will stick by you through all your hair experiments, good or bad
