Short, but necessary:

Vinegar as a conditioner is a bad idea. Many sites I researched when looking for natural hair products recommended using ACV to soften and detangle hair. I really can't tell you if it softens or not, but I can tell you that having soft hair is pointless if you smell like a pickle.

Everything I read swore the scent rinsed out. I tried it several times. Once rinsed, rinsed, and triple rinsed, I didn't smell a thing. But people randomly started sniffing the air when they walked into the same room with me, their brows knit in confusion.

I didn't tell anyone what I was doing, but my husband leaned over to kiss me and asked, "Why do you smell like pickles?"

Don't do it. Just don't.

I rinse my hair with a solution of a cup of very cold water and a couple tablespoons of ACV as a final cuticle closin' rinse. Makes me shine! :o)

Do I smell like pickles??? Oh, well...I'm rather fond of pickles.

God bless and have a great weekend!!!

This made me giggle! :-) I remember reading about this "no poo" thing on the boards. I've tried it, but not as closely as you did - I've just washed occasionally with baking soda. I did try vinegar as a rinse, but it really did not work for me. I have thick, coarse, oily hair, and I tended to look like my hair belonged on the end of a broom.

Have you seen the L'Oreal sulfate-free products? I'm using the sunflower one and I just love it. Why is silicone-free important?

Mmmm... Pickles.
Not so much in hair though. I tried that once and I agree.
