Is it safe to do a ACV rinse a few days AFTER a protein pack & a moisture treatment?
Hello! I have 2b Wavy/Curly hair and I try to do a Coconut Protein Pack by Palmers every 2 months or so( because I dye my hair every 8-10 weeks)..I follow up with the Loreal Paris EverPure Moisture Deep Restorative Masque after the protein pack and it works pretty well for me besides the last time that I did both.. My hair felt very sticky and heavy afterwards..I'm thinking it was because I used a shampoo by Pantene before I did the protein pack and moisture masque..I'm thinking maybe it was just build up and my hair wasn't washed very well before. I then used WEN shampoo maybe 3 days later. My hair feels pretty healthy but it just looks very frizzy and my hair is kind of dull.. The weather has been very humid lately so I also was thinking it could be the change of weather..The last time I dyed my roots was august 23rd and I was wondering if I should try an ACV rinse on it? I also just purchased The ORS Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo since it says it helps with build up but I have not used it yet..any reccomendations would be great thanks!!
HI Raipinkoh, ACV rinses are very gentle, so anytime you decide to do one will be fine. Just be sure your hair is thoroughly clean before you do it, otherwise you won't get the effect you want. An ACV rinse is supposed to smooth your cuticles and give you softer hair. They're awesome! Only thing is, if you're doing both a protein pack and a moisture treatment, I'm not sure you need an ACV rinse. Usually ACV rinses are good if you're trying to condition your hair and make it softer without all the heavy stuff. If you're experiencing buildiup, be sure to use a good clarifying shampoo. If you don't like your olive oil shampoo, try Suave. Lots of people love Suave Clarifying Shampoo, and it's super cheap. I've attached an image below. And remember that wavy hair is very delicate and can't take a ton of heavy products, so maybe don't do treatments so close together. I recommend spacing out the treatments. Do a protein pack right after you dye your hair, and then a deep treatment once every two weeks after that. And again, the ACV rinse is gentle, do you can incorporate that whenever you want. Some people use it on every wash day! Good luck! And let me know if you have any more questions. :)
