ACV Rinse and my crazy reloc ~ PART I

Hello, everyone!!! How are you? Wishing you a great week. 

Braggs AC and measuring cup
Today, I'm serving you up a dose of wonderfulness! Yesterday, I did my ACV Rinse and this time around I did not use as much apple cider vinegar as I did the first time. The result? My locs are not as stiff. The scalp is still nice and clean, the locs a little brighter in appearance. 

Using my measuring cup, I mixed 4 tablespoons to 4 cups of boiled water and I let it sit for about 15 minutes so it would cool. I washed my hair this time around using Shea Moisture's Coconut and Hibiscus Curl and Shine Shampoo that I bought for pumpkin. Following that I conditioned for the first time with Shea Moisture's Restorative Conditioner. Even though the Coconut and Hibiscus is recommended for curly hair, I just wanted to try it. The smell is divine. And there is no need to use too much either as it lathers well and you get a very good consistency with just a dollop or two. Do you dollop shampoo though? 

I don't like the pump on the conditioner's bottle. It dispenses too little. The actual product is nice and creamy in texture, and its scent is similar to the accompanying shampoo. It was easy to rinse out as well.

After that process, I squeezed some of the excess water out of my hair, then rinsed with the apple cider vinegar. The smell was ok. Yes, it was different but it's not that overpowering. Nor does it linger that long, so don't be afraid to give it a try.

Now, onto Part II and pictures of my DIY reloc ;0)


  1. Oh wow, ACV helped to keep your locs from being stiff? That's awesome, will be passing on the tips to friends!

  2. No, no. I think you might not have understood me. The first time I did the apple cider vinegar rinse, I used a little too much of the vinegar to the parts water I had. It left my hair a little crunchy, stiff. I had read that on another resource site. Now, this my second time around, I did not add as much apple cider vinegar because I revisited my ACV recipe. So my locs were not as stiff.

    Hope you understand a little better now. The apple cider vinegar does clear your hair of the gunk caused from continued product use.
