This is where I got my ACV rinse information.

In this CurlChemist article I found the following:

Quote:
Since vinegar is acidic, with a pH between 2.5 and 3.5 (depending upon type and concentration), using it in a dilute solution as a final rinse for your hair or as a rinse prior to conditioning is an excellent way to lower the pH of your hair to the isoelectric point or slightly below it. This allows the hair to be sealed flat with a smooth outer layer of interconnected cuticle scales. This has the effect of making hair very shiny, with fewer tangles, more bounce and greater mangeability. To obtain maximum benefit from your rinse, I recommend preparing your solutions from water that has been filtered or softened. It is important to use vinegar carefully and in conjunction with a good conditioner, as it can be somewhat drying to the hair if used frequently or in too high a concentration. Overall, it is a fantastic and affordable addition to any hair-care routine.
I haven't tried it yet with bottled or distilled water but I plan to since I have hard water issues.

Hope this helps.

I typically do my ACV rinse once or twice a week... usually after I use a shampoo/soap bar.
the measurements are 2 cups of water to 1 tbsp of ACV.

I have a brita filtered water jug and i use the water from it when i do an acv rinse, it really does seem to make a difference.

I did one just now!

I put 2.5 tablespoons of ACV into a water bottle and filled that up with tap water. I have drilled a small hole on the cap of the bottle to make application easier. I co-wash, DT and rinse out with the ACV mix.
