    Default How To Do ACV Rinse?

    I've read alot about ACV rinse but I have a few questions.

    What does an ACV rinse do for your hair?

    I have TB length, fairly thick 3Aish hair...would this work for me?

    How do you do it? I know that it's mixed with water but do you apply and then rinse again with plain water or just leave it on?

    What's a good ratio? I hear 50/50 alot, but is that just for certain hair types or everyone?

    Hi

    An ACV rinse will smooth down the cuticle and add shine..it's fairly conditioning. What I do is add 2tbs of ACV to 2 cups of water....if you feel that is too much, just use 1tbs ACV per 2 cups of water. I have a bottle in the shower. Before I get in, I'll add the ACV and right at the end, I'll add the water to the bottle and pour it over my hair, let sit for a couple of minutes and then rinse off. For extra shine, you may do a cool water rinse.

    50/50 may be way too harsh and may make hair feel oily.

    I use very diluted ACV- say, a tablespoon or less in a pint of water- and I use it after every wash. After washing and conditioning, I pour the ACV-water through my hair and over my scalp. I leave it on for a while, and then rinse it out with cool water. It makes my hair shinier.

    2 tablespoons to 32oz of warm water. I lean over the sink and pour this over my head. The first time I used 32oz of ACV....lol. Misread/misunderstood directions.

    Acid rinses are especially important for those of us who use a soap-based washing method. If you use a conventional shampoo or conditioner for washing you might not feel the benefit of a vinegar rinse.

    I use a 1:20 ratio - 50ml white vinegar in a 1l pitcher, and fill that up with warm tap water. My water is quite soft. If you have harder water you might want to up the vinegar. 50:50 sounds a bit much, though.

    omg you really did that? i used like 2 tablespoons once in 2 cups of water and my hair turned out HORRIBLE.god these hair experiments are hilarious sometimes

    About the ACV rinse..what worked for me was 2 teaspoons in a large amount of water...i dont know how much was it i just filled this large bowl and added the ACV.Really dont underestimate that small amount of ACV..you dont really need alot of it to do the trick.

    Reminds me of last weekend when I added ACV to my henna to help cover grays. I didn't know how much, so I added 1/4 cup. MISTAKE.

    I haven't done an ACV rinse yet because I wasn't sure about the amount of ACV. I'll make sure I use the minimum, lol.

    Thanks so much for the great advice. I'm so glad I asked! I thought for sure that I had read 50/50. Now I don't know where I read that..lol. I guess that would have been...um...interesting...
    I do a CWC weekly and then CO only once or twice during the rest of the week, depending on how my scalp is feeling.

    I was a little afraid to try it, thinking that maybe it wouldn't be good for curlies.

    I did ACV rinse tonight, I did a generous dash of ACV in a pitcher of water and poured it over my head...but for some reason I didn't rinse it very much, I thought the dillution would make it rise well. I smell kind of ACV-ish right now but I don't think it will hurt my hair.

    Talking Re: How To Do ACV Rinse?

    I'm a curly and I love ACV rinses!!! it makes my hair soft and smooth and slippery.
    I use the same approximate dilution as most of the other posters, i usually just eyeball it, a small splash in a bowl of water, and then swish it around and dunk my hair in it and let it sit for a minute, then pour it over my head and let that sit another minute, then rinse well to get rid of the smell, which i've never had an issue with.
    i have heard of some people who put the acv in their hair before they condition, but i have not tried this yet....
