Well, there is no definitive answer to that question. It all depends on the condition of your hair.

Knowing that my wash and go’s consist of a lot of product build-up from the gel that I used to define my hair, I would definitely clarify my scalp with my next wash day.

HOW DO YOU DO AN APPLE CIDER VINEGAR RINSE ON YOUR HAIR?
For my best results, I make the apple cider vinegar rinse first and then wash my hair with As I am coconut co-wash. Next, I rinse out the coconut co-wash and section my hair with hair clips. Then I take my spray bottle with the apple cider vinegar mix and spray each section of hair generously and massage the mixture on my scalp.
I do this throughout my whole head and then let the mix rinse sit on my hair for about five minutes. Personally, I like to use the entire bottle. After the five minutes, I rinse my hair out with very cold water. The cold water helps to close your pores, seal in the moisture and clumping the hair. After that final rinse, I immediately can see the difference in my curls.
