I have fine, thin damaged hair.  Do you ladies use acv rinses on your hair? I'm not sure what exactlywhat the purpose is , but i noticed many ppl on the board use it and I have some at home so I was curious to try it. I was just wondering if it would be good or bad for my hair type?

I have fine hair with the bottom foot or so that is damaged.  I do ACV rinses regularly to help remove product buildup and give my hair more shine.  I do the rinse after shampooing and before conditioning.  I feel the ACV allows the conditioner to do a better job on my hair.

Some people do vinegar rinses every time they shampoo.  Others do it less frequently.  For me, I see the best results when I do the rinse about every 4 shampoos.

Hi   Smiley  I have fine hair, though not damaged, and I use a vinegar rinse about once a week.  Vinegar rinses can be useful for any hair type.  Good luck!

Trisha is right. Vinegar rinses are good for any hair type because they help to remove buildup and bacteria from the hair and scalp.

Like you, I also have fine, thin hair with a little damage. I have used ACV before and it worked just fine for rinses, but I actually prefer distilled white vinegar.

Hi MTBBIO,
I have used both ACV and white vinegar rinses and have had success with both.  I try to use it everytime I wash my hair (about twice a week) as it makes my hair super soft afterwards.  If I don't use it, I find my hair is quite oily at the top, even after washing.
I only use a tiny amount of vinegar though, and then fill the rest of a cup up with warm water.
Good luck!  Smiley

Just did my first vinegar rinse with Red Wine Vinegar and my hair feels fantastic. It's so soft I can't stop running my fingers through it. Didn't like the smell, so I washed it after the rinse. I read that some of you just do conditioner after the rinse, does the conditioner cover up the vinegar smell?

The vinegar smell actually goes away as your hair dries.  You don't have to wash it out,but you can if you want to.  You can also rinse it out and then condition if you wanted to.

I absolutly love ACV- I apply the vinegar after I shampoo but before I condition- that way there is never a smell.

Hi Smiley I just use clarifying shampoo. Is that the same thing as vinegar rinses?
