Call me nutty, but when I use baking soda I typically skip the ACV rinse because my hair feels good without it. I do mix my baking soda with conditioner so that lowers the ph. I'll try vinegar tonight though to see if there's a major difference.

How often do you all do these??

I find myself wanting to do them often. Like once a month or more. My hair just feels so awesome afterwards. I do have very hard water so maybe I just need the clarifying more often.
