Default ACV rinse-Clue me in!

Ive been CG for 1 month now and although my hair is curling wonderfully now, I'de like to try an ACV rinse.
What EXACTLY does it do? How exactly do I do it? Do I low poo first? Do I cowash first? Do I need condish later? How often? Im hearing its great for shine and I could use some since Ive been looking dull...

Have you read Struttswife's website, livecurlylivefree.com? She talks about them and other home remedies on her site. Here's the part about ACV:

I usually use an ACV rinse after I use soap bars (they are great, by the way, especially for us modified CGs!). I use 1 Tablespoon of ACV mixed into 8 oz. of water, put it in a spray bottle, and just spray on my hair after soap bar and condish, to rinse out. It makes my hair shiny and restores the pH balance from the soap bars.

Ditto nancytmcc. I've done one at least twice a week since Jan, 08 with no problems. I use the Braggs Organic ACV that you can health food store, WF, etc. My hair seems to like it better than the ones you buy in the grocery store.

I second this. I personally use them after shampoo bars (pretty much required), but mostly I use them when I am kinda feeling limp. Perks my hair right up.

I use it after conditioning, rinse out as usual. Do the ACV (1tsp to 1 cup cool water), let it set for a minute, cold rinse that out.
