ACV rinse - BEFORE or AFTER rinse-out conditioner?

Like Tree1Likes

Ok. So I did my second ACV rinse today and I noticed that after I rinsed my hair felt very soft but when I put in my LI my hair kinda felt like straw. Does this mean I need to change my LI?

My routine was:
BaSo wash
Cowash
Apply RO condish
RO with coolish water
ACV rinse
LI

The LI I use is L'Oreal ever sleek.

3b/High porosity/Fine - Medium density/Medium texture
PT: Ion Reconstructor
DT: GVPCB
Co-wash/RO: Cure Care, Tresemme Naturals, GVPCB
Leave In: Tresemme Naturals, Renpure Moisturizing

HG's: Cure Care condish, Ion Reconstructor
I have similar hair texture to yours (from what I can tell) and I didn't like the L'Oreal Eversleek. It was too thin and didn't moisturize enough for me. It was like water.
I don't know if the straw-like feeling to your hair was due to the ACV or to the LI, but I never liked how my hair felt after that particular LI. My hair never has issues with an ACV, it always feels soft, springy, extra bouncy and light. I love doing an ACV.
That's me with FSG as my styler!!

3b. fine & thick, coarse, dry, medium porosity. Sucks up product and loves ACVs! FSG is my HG!

Currently using:
Low Poo: TJ's Refresh No Poo: CoWash w/VO-5; Sonoma Soap Company sulfate-free poo
RO: Yes to Cuc; SSC Lavender Condish; Sally GVP LI: Donna Marie Miracle D&C
Style: FSG w/Aussie Instant Freeze & CIAB
I know what you mean. It's so thin. I was using the Garnier LI but it has a -cone in it. I want to use drugstore products, but I can't find many -cone free LI's. Unless there is one that I don't know about. Lol

I thought about watering down my co-wash cond and see how that works.

I did mine after my rinse out (Deva one conditoner) then I applied the ACV and after I rinsed that out I put in a leave in (Tresmme Naturals) and some oil to seal and I was fine. Here is the picture to prove it ^^ it may work differently for you try both ways

Does it matter what kind of vinegar you use? I have ACV (cheapo kind from Lucky's) and white vinegar.
I think ACV is best, but white works, too. Just dilute it even more than ACV.

Btw, I put in my RO, leave it for a few minutes, then add a little more RO with ACV in it, comb through and rinse.

I do my ACV rinse before Doing anything.. In case the ACV rinse smell decides it wants to linger on my hair
Okay, I tried it. AMAZING! My hair felt very silky when I rinsed it out, but its still drying, so not entirely sure if it worked well yet.

FYI, I CO washed first, rinsed with cool water, rinsed with ACV (left it for about a minute), and finally rinsed it out with cool water. I styled as usual.
