Ok, so I've been feeling "some kind of way" about transitioning. My texture all of a sudden felt real jacked up and I was feenin' for some creamy crack. I just wanted my bangs to lay that to much to ask for?!?!?!? LOL

So I've been reading on LHCF and Mane and Chic about ACV rinses. ACV=Apple Cider Vinger The users claimed that it left their hair super shiny and bouncy. Now how exactly ACV which should be pretty acidic leaves hair shiny and bouncy, I didn't know. And I was skeptical. But there have been very few things (none really) that I've tried from LHCF that didn't work on my hair, so I thought...why not?

So off to the health food store I went yesterday and bought Bragg's Organic ACV

Here is what I did...

  • DC'd using the home steam and the 15-10-10 methods on dry hair with ORS Replenishing, EVOO and 2 other conditioners from Sally's I can't remember the name of

  • Co-washed with Aussie Moist (the jury is still out on this condish, but I guess it did ok)

  • ACV final rinse with a color applicator bottle (1 oz. Bragg Organic ACV to 4 oz. water)

  • Plastic cap for 5 min while showering

  • Lacio Lacio (as leave in), Coconut Oil and MN mix

  • Rollerset on pink magnetics with Rollersetting Lotion mix (Aloe vera juice, water, EVOO, Castor Oil, Africa's Best Oil--my hair needs some oil and moisture)

  • Hooded Dryer for 90 minutes

  • Unrolled hair and applied Coconut Oil to ends

  • Re-rolled with satin foam rollers (can't sleep on magnetics)

  • Sleep

  • Style in the morning
Here are the results...

Unfortunately I'm working today so I had to take these with my camera phone, so you may not be able to see the shine, but trust me it's there. My hair is super soft, shiny and swingy.

I know for a lot of LHCF sisters you can't use as much oil as I did, but my hair loved it. I shouldn't have to put anything in my hair til next wash day.

ACV will definitely be part of my reggie going forward!
