Hair feels hard after starting ACV rinses. What's wrong?!
I have thick, low porosity 2b hair. My scalp is itchy, oily, and prone to dandruff. I started using an ACV rinse to see if the ph balance would help with the oil and itching.
For the first rinse, I used 2 cups water, 2 Tbsp ACV, and a few drops tea tree oil. After it, my hair felt soft and moisturized.
For the second rinse, i used 1 cup green tea, 1 Tbsp ACV, and a few drops of tea tree oil. Afterward my hair felt hard but not dry.
The third time, i noticed that my hair felt hard after the cold water rinse, even before the ACV rinse.
Do i need to tweak the rinse formula or is something else the problem? Or does the hardness mean that my hair is stronger?

The ACV helps with cleansing and clarifying the scalp, but its ingredients can sometimes be too harsh on the actual hair, especially fine waves like yours.
Immediately condition & moisture your hair after an ACV rinse, and only do the rinse maybe every 6 weeks or so if needed.
Try these (they restore moisture):
