ACV (apple cider vinegar) ..... proof as a clarifier? I was sent a PM from a member just starting her natural hair journey.....who had just found KT's videos and annotations have been added to all previous vides stating there is no scientific proof that ACV can clarify the hair.... that it basically closes the cuticle and that's about it. You must use a clarifying shampoo So.....Because I had never researched this, I did a 2 second google and found that a slightly alkaline pH is needed (shrugs) to clarify and slightly acidic pH for conditioning. So has anyone ever researched this further? Any scientific based articles? For one, this same site (yep all from this 2 sec searchs) stated ACV clarifies by getting rid of build up without stripping the hair (if diluted properly of course)....but then goes on to state a slightly alkaline pH is used to clarify PLEASE DON'T WASTE UR TIME RESEARCHING THIS (i will later anyway)... just wondered if someone had previously looked into the who, what, and why's of clarifying ummm-K tia god bless!
