When I do the ACV rinse do I do it all over my head or just the ends? Also, what vinegar/water ratio should I use for a oily scalp but dry frizzy hair?

Thank you

When my scalp gets oily (which isn't often so maybe I'm not the best to give advice on that) I rub baking soda into it before the ACV. I use the ACV rinse roughly every 2-4 days. I do about 1:5 ratio ACV to vinegar & do it all over but concentrate on the ends.

i use about 2 tablespoons of BS in 1-2 cups of water and pour it on my head...rub like i've got lather and then rinse well. i follow with 2 tablespoons of ACV in a couple cups of water & rinse well with cold water. you may need to adjust the ratio, but this works well for me (i have long hair) hth.

Thank you! This helped a lot.

How do you normally prepare the "solutions"? Currently I have a regular large cup and a measuring cup. I've been looking for large squeeze bottles but can't find them anywhere.

I just use empty vinegar bottles & refill them with the BS or ACV solutions.

I use straight baking soda and straight ACV. I grab several small fingerfulls of BS and scrub it well into my scalp then rinse well. After that I dump a small amount of straight ACV on my hair starting at the scalp. My hair is gorgeous. I do this 2-3 times/week.

It seems like other people try to make it more complicated.

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

I don't try to make it complicated, I try to make it CHEAP!! That's what's with the watering down, for me at least. I agree though that everyone makes it seem like you have to do the whole ACV thing a certain way with certain ratios when really you can't screw it up as long as you modify your approach based on your hair's needs.

I wish my hair was gorgeous. I can't stand it. It's better with the ACV then it's ever been in my life but it's still a big frizzy uncontrollable mess of curls. Share some of your gorgeous hair with me!! I'll make a wig next time you cut yours!! hehe

When I use straight BS, my hair gets too dry and breaks off near the roots.

And straight ACV really burns some body parts. Even diluted, keep it away from your eyes.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
