Dry hair + ACV rinse questions

misslilithmisslilith Posts: 9Registered Users
I'm on my 3rd CG week and I have already seen great improvement in my waves (almost curls at this point!). However, my hair still feels and looks pretty dry and damaged and is quite frizzy, especially at the crown. Also, the hair under the top layer is very limp and straight... what can I do?

I will try to do an ACV rinse again today, have tried it once before but I'm really confused as to the exact recipe; how much of water/vinegar? Also, do I co-wash, ACV rinse, then condition? Or another way around?

Thank you for your help :)

    I have dry damaged hair but I do ACV rinse once a week. Just do a normal CO-wash then condition your hair. Once you have rinsed your hair just do the AVG rinse as the final step.

    I used 2 caps of ACV to 1 cup of water.

    Then I use my styling products or just a leave in conditioner.

    Hope this helps.

    Considering going Mod-CG and using H&S once a week to prevent build up, flakes and other nastys.:confused3:

    I use one tablespoon of vinegar for each cup of water. I usually do a total of three cups water (3 T vinegar). If you can stand it, cold water works best and helps seal the cuticle. Think of it as a refreshing way to start the day.

    My hair was dry and frizzy when I started CG. I used weekly ACVs anyway, and my hair always looked better afterwards.

    I just measured out 2 capfuls of ACV onto a spoon and its 1 tablespoon worth... Ironic.. Seems different ways but its the same:laughing7:

    I tried another rinse today and my hair feels a lot softer and has more volume so I think I can call the mission accomplished :) Thank you for all the tips.
