Does anyone do them on a regular basis?
What exactly is the purpose of an ACV rinse?
When is the right time to do one? After or before a wash/DC?
What are the benefits? WHat are your experiences?
Hell, how do you include this in your regimen?!?!
 
MY hair has NOT been actin right lately!! I did a super DC with some garnier fructis fortifying mask stuff, and alone it was terrible, so i decided to add some EVOO to boost it. It was still terrible!!! Left my hair a hard brittle, dull MESS!!!
 
So I'm thinking maybe I'll try this...???

ACV is usually used to clarify.  I've never used in, but I know a few people who dilute it (sometimes 1:1) and rinse. 

Nothing more to add (sorry).  Maybe some of the vets can chime in.

all i know is used to clarify the hair to get raid of build up, some do it ones a month, others every two weeks, it mostly depends on how your hair feels.

ACV Balance the ph of hair.  Rinsing with ACV will remove build-up, and also close the hair cuticles.  You can use 1 Tbsp. of vinegar to 1 cup water.  Some people do it after shampooing the hair.  I do it after rinsing the conditioner from my hair.  Because, the ACV will close the cuticles, and keep the hair moisturized.

 
You might need to use a clarifying shampoo.  Because, Garnier products are full of cones.

What exactly is the purpose of an ACV rinse? To remove residue/build-up, close the cuticles, enhance shine, ph-balance the hair, remove tangles, temporarily reduce porosity in the hair etc.
When is the right time to do one? After or before a wash/DC? I normally do it after everything (shampooing, dc'ing, ACV rinse) to close the cuticles and lock in the good stuff. however, today I tried it the other way around, as a clarifier just to see how it works. I'll let you know after im done deep conditioning under heat.
 
Hell, how do you include this in your regimen?!?! You can either use it as a replacement of shampoo, or you can do it as a final rinse in your hair after shampooing & deep conditioning. Maybe 1-2x a month. It all depends.
 
So I'm thinking maybe I'll try this...??? Yes, try it out and see if you like it. I do!!! Simply combine 1/4 cup of Apple cider vinegar with 2 cups of cool water. Poor this mixture over the hair. Rinse thoroughly in cool water.

I was a little skeptical about using ACV but I haven't had a bad experience so far. (Knocking on wood)

I'm not quite clear on the best time to use it either but I've been using it as a final rinse after co-washing. I co-wash about 3 times a week but only use the ACV rinse once or twice a week. I use a 20 oz. bottle and pour about 1/3 of cup (or less) into it first and then fill the rest with cool water. I pour the mixture over my hair a little at a time and make sure all my hair is saturated. I usually only work it in for a couple of minutes and rinse again with plain cool water. The smell can be strong at first but quickly dissipates after a little rinsing.

I can definitely tell a difference when I use it. I love how it makes my hair feel smooth and much easier to manage. I usually don't even have to use a de-tangling spray afterwards.

It's definitely something you have to experiment with to find the right combination for your hair.
