ACV rinse - BEFORE or AFTER rinse-out conditioner?

Like Tree1Likes

I've seen some people recommend doing an ACV rinse before your rinse out conditioner and some do it after. Which is right? If the ACV rinse is supposed to shut down the cuticle, it makes sense to me that it would go *after* the rinse out conditioner, to seal the moisture in.

Anyone want to chime in? Thanks!

I personally do it after my rinse out cond. After I do the ACV and rinse that out I put my leave in cond.

3b curls fine/medium & porous (I think)
CO-WASH: Suave Naturals coconut
COND: Matrix Biolage cond. balm or
AOHR
ACV rince 1x wk
LEAVE-IN: Giovanni DLI,Matrix Biolage balm or Aura Cherry Almond Bark
GEL: HE set me up
SKIN: Purpose gentle cleansing bar
I think it makes sense to do it after the last condish rinse, for the same reason you said Short
I've done the ACV rinse twice now. While it does make perfect sense to do it after the rinse out conditioner, that did not work well for me. That's how I did it the first time and my hair was a frizzy mess even though I put in leave in, etc. right after. Maybe there was another factor but it was frizzy like that for a couple of days.

The second time I did it was last week and I did it before my rinse out. I had much better results.

Yesterday I did my first ACV rinse, and I really liked it. I did the ACV rinse, and then I conditioned my hair. I followed the directions from Sweetpeacurli's Silly Little Site:

My hair didn't frizz afterwards.

I'll have to try it this way too and see how it works out. I did notice a bit of frizz doing it the other way.

I'm one of those that will get frizz if I don't condition after the ACV. Some professionals recommend to ACV and then do the condition because ACV can be drying. Others get much better results with it being the last step. I can't do it last heh.

I just realized yesterday that I did a baking soda cleanse and then ACV, then my leave in. . . BUT I just realized that I forgot to rinse out that ACV rinse!!! I'm so embarassed. could this be why my hair is super frizz and nasty??? Here I am going over this in my head because i Had product buildup and thinking why didn't this work on my hair, it looks just as frizzy as before. could this be why?? Now just to keep things straight, herbal rinses, like a sage rinse, you wouldn't rinse that out, right? Or am I wrong?? Don't want to mess that one up too.

I do exactly like Rustina ^. I do baking soda first and rinse that out, condish, rinse that out then pour ACV with warm water over head and step out of shower. I don't rinse the ACV out. I then add my LI and stylers. Leaves my hair shiny and bouncy. I have to deal with build up, hard water and high dews on a regular though.

Like BS/ACV rinses, limit protein/humectants.
I do it once a month after i have used deep conditioner and rinsed it out, and i dont rinse the avc out. I mix 1tbsp avc for every 2 cups of water. :-)

It my be worth mentioning that I typically don't separate the two - I do a baking soda/cowash, then I mix my ACV with my conditioner and use it that way.

The not rinsing ACV make sense - a lot of people (including me) have used some ACV in refresher sprays and such!

Does anyone use ACV daily?

ive just started using ACV in a herb rinse, and i do that as a final rinse, after my leave in. i think the reason y same people do it before there wash out condish, is for the smell, but when ya only put a bit in then the smell goes away alone

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
the idea that it corrects the pH balance of the hair and also closes the cuticle makes me think it wouldnt do the job if more product was applied and rinsed out after. Im only going by what Ive read..but it seems to make sense
I use it! I just did it yesterday.

I do acv as the final rinse since it does close my cuticle.

Oh sheesh, y'all. 'Tis my phone!
