ACV: Take Two

Even though my first ACV attempt was a flop, I couldn’t throw in the towel without giving it one more try.
This time I increased the amount of vinegar but applied it at the same time in my routine, after my shampoo and before conditioner.
I used 1 tsp vinegar to 1 cup water. I thoroughly saturated my hair -focusing on both my hair and scalp this time- and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
It started to tingle near the 10-minute mark and I couldn’t wait to rinse it out. I could definitely tell the vinegar ratio had been upped.
I then added conditioner, rinsed, applied moisturizer and sealed with oil.
3 things that I noticed:
- My scalp felt extra refreshed and tingly)
- My dreads were light and fluffy
- I seemed to need less oil for sealing
Sounds like a hit, right? Not quite.
I still didn’t get the epiphany that everyone else seems to. No lint being magically whisked to the surface or mounds of dirt and residue dislodging from the core.
Aside from the tingly scalp, my hair feels the same after a thorough washing with my regular shampoo, or even after using my regular clarifying shampoo.
So if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
