Q&A: ACV Rinses Part 2

I got a few questions on my recent post on ACV rinses and I wanted to answer them so that anyone else with the same questions can see them too!!

LaQT asked:
How do you perform your rinse?
I have used two methods. I've mixed the ACV solution in a big cup (like the 64oz cups that you get at QuickTrip!) and just poured it over my head. I don't like that method and haven't used it in a while because I feel like it wastes a lot of product (even though ACV is super cheap and you don't need that much of it to do the rinse lol).

Nowadays, I use a more precise method. I mix two cups of water with one teaspoon of ACV in my measuring cup and pour the solution into a spray bottle. When I'm done washing and conditioning my hair, I turn the water as cool as I can handle and then rinse my hair with water only, then I spray the ACV solution directly onto my hair (taking care to get the ends!) and then rinse it out under the cool, running water.

And that's it! Easy as pie! HTH!


Anything Hair asked:
Does the organic ACV work better or serve a different purpose?

I'm not 100% sure but I would venture to say that it does. I think the ACV that I have works fine for closing the hair shaft (because of the pH) but I think a lot of the people who were noticing hair growth benefits and help with scalp conditions were probably using the kind with "the mother" (why it's called that, I have no clue!) which shows that the vinegar has not been overly processed and all of the natural goodness is still in tact. I would do a google search with "apple cider vinegar the mother" for more information on that. HTH!

  1. I had given up on ACV because the last time I tried it I basically poured it over my hair, and it had left my hair tangled (I think my mix was too acidic as weel). I may try your method of using a spray bottle this weekend and use less ACV.

  2. Thanks for your post :D

    What EXACTLY does ACV rinse do for your hair though? I've tried it once, and I had the same result as Jenijen. I Mixed 3 cups water to about 1/8 to 1/4 cup ACV.

    What benefits do you get from your method?

  3. Okay, so it's mainly water (16oz) and 1 tbsp of ACV. I got it. I'll try it this weekend. Thanks so much for addressing my question. I really appreciate it.

  4. I love that idea of the spray bottle. I had given up on the ACV rinses I found I couldn't get to saturate my hair properly. I will definitely try that. It should work for black tea rinses which I also gave up on.

  5. We absolutely love your blog and find most of your post's to be exactly I'm looking for.
