Default First apple cider vinegar rinse

So...I did my first acv rinse. OMG now my ends are DRY and my hair is hard. Does anyone else experience this after an acv rinse? I'd hate to see what baking soda would do to my hair.

I have only done a couple, but I have really liked the results. How did you do it? I like to mix 1 T. acv with a Cup of warm water. I shake them up in a bottle and then after my RO I squirt it all onto my hair/scalp, scrunch it around for just a few seconds, and then follow with a cold rinse. It could be that you used too much vinegar, or that you left it too long.

I used less than a tablespoon of acv with just enough water in the sink to cover the bottom if the sink. & rinsed immediately. Spent 10 - 15 minutes rinsing to make sure it was all out. My hair is dry & still coming out. the water was warm. My hair won't move & its hard as a rock.

To get this result I didn't need acv & water. I could've used a sulfate shampoo. So not happy.

Sorry you are having trouble with your hair. I've been doing vinegar rinses for about 40 years and have never had a problem with it drying my hair. And I use a much stronger solution than many folks use. Hopefully a deep treatment will get your hair back to normal.

One thing I know is that my hair is VERY sensitive. I was not expecting the results I got. Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect since I haven't used it before. It was a dire emergency that I needed it, but things are on the mend. I should have gorgeous hair by the weekend.

My hair reacts the same way to ACV, I'm not sure why, but it just doesn't work, and baking soda (for me) is the WORST. It absolutely wrecks my hair. I'm curious as to why my hair reacts like this too, I mean I'm not surprised about the baking soda, but I didn't think my hair would react like that to a *lower* ph.

Acv is VERY strong. My daft hair didn't react well to it but I was told that dryness is normal. Luckily, I won't be doing that again.

There are a few threads on this topic:

Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse

Do a Hair Rinse With Apple Cider & Vinegar

http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlta...curlies-=.html

Natural Vinegar Hair Rinse

A lot of curlies (including me!) add herbs, oils, and/or honey to their rinse for added benefits. Some good herbs are marshmallow root, hibiscus, horsetail, nettle, and chamomile.

You could also try adding it to your RO, as per Yoshimi's great idea:

Vinegar in my conditioner, wow

HTH!

Thank you so much! I'm kinda scared doing the ACV but I guess I should do it once a month my hair is to dry for me to do every week but when I do clarify I going to try the ACV afterwards. Thanks again!
