I started hearing about the ACV rinse for your hair to eliminate build-ups. (For those of you who might be as clueless as me at first, ACV = apple cider vinegar.)

Then I was looking in to a cure for my arm ringworm that the OTC cream like Tinactin or Lotrimin could not get rid of permanently, and many people (from Google search) suggested using ACV on the ringworm topically.

One person said her husband took it internally (1.5 tbsp) twice a day, and it took care of his 6-mo.-old ringworm in 2 weeks. Then they both started taking it once a day just for general good health.

I remember hearing about taking ACV to help a person lose weight.

Are there any other benefits of ACV?

Anyone else is taking ACV daily? If so, how much? I am taking it right now 2 tbsp and I must say I really hate the taste. I would like to know how you take it, and what you mix it with?

Thank you.

I take ACV capsules, about 6 a day, it is supposed to be good for you - helps lose weight. The one I take is NOW Cider Vinegar Diet Formula with Grapefruit, Kelp, Lecithin, B-6, Chromium, & Glucomannan. Its about $10 for 180 capsules at Whole Foods. I've been taking them about 6 months, and my weight has stayed down. They do not taste like anything.

I tried ACV for about 6 months to lose weight -- didn't do anything for me. Sad

I used to take the ACV capsules but not consistently enough to notice anything substantial. A coworker at the time said she lost a lot of weight from taking the supplements. Right now my mom is taking 1 tbsp of ACV mixed with water as recommended by her doctor to help lower her blood pressure. I am now using it mainly for hair and scalp treatments.

I don't know about ACV being a good dieting ingredient, but it's doing miracles to my hair! I'm going to use ACV as a face toner soon, too!

I don't understand why the ACV rinse actually. I have done it every time I washed my hair since I read it on EDS, but my hair felt stiff immediately. I thought it was supposed to make my hair softer and untangled. What is up with that?

[i]My grandmother is Russian and use to make a hair rinse of a teaspoon in a cup of warm water. I use to have long hair then and it made my hair really shiny and soft!

I had the same experience with the ACV rinse. I wish that it worked as well for me as others have described.

Thank God I'm not the only one. I think I'll give up on doing the ACV rinse since it doesn't seem to help, and it makes me smell like vinegar all day.

Are you ladies rinsing it out or rinsing it thru your hair?

I added about 3 teaspoon in my shampoo and condition. I also do a final ACV rinse, which I leave it on.

The final rinse is supposed to be left in, I believe. Maybe it depends on the amount of diluted ACV, or maybe it depends with which shampoo. Question I'm planning on trying it tomorrow for the first time after work. I thought I had heard from people here that the smell dissipated quickly.

The smell fades once your hair is dry.

I take it everyday, I've been taking it daily.

As a toner (1:1 ratio with water) and internally. It expels the toxins, and helps with so much more. Google it, you can't afford to be without ACV.

I haven't been consistent, but I've been trying to have a couple of tablespoons in the morning in a big glass of water. I can't prove it, but I think it helps with weight and maybe helps with my tendency to be congested during the winter.

Make sure to buy the unfiltered sort (looks a bit cloudy rather than clear). Bragg's is a good brand, or anything that says "organic" on the label should be unfiltered.

For anyone that is taking ACV, it can wreak havoc on your teeth, as it will erode the enamel. Sad A tip that read when I was taking it was to add it to a glass of water and then drink it through a straw so that it doesn't touch your teeth.

I know of one woman who takes 1 tbsp daily and she swears it keeps her cholesterol under control. I am definitely going to give this a try now!

I dont really like to add it to anything, I prefer to use it as a final rinse(let it sit for a few mins), then rinse my hair really well with plain water. Or I do the exact same thing before I shampoo, etc.

If you find your hair is crunchy you might want to give this way a go and see if it works better.

I drink ACV in hot water with a little baking soda and honey twice a day. It's delicious, actually. I use Trader Joe's ACV (must have the "dust" at the bottom, or "mother," as it's called), and it tastes more like grownup apple cider than anything else.

I've been doing it about a month. It definitely stunts my appetite -- but honey in hot water would do that, too, I believe. I haven't noticed any great changes, but certainly no downside, either. I thought I'd try it; it couldn't hurt. Although I can get too heavy on the honey, I know. Laughing But I use local honey, and that helps with allergies. Rrrrright? Wink I tell myself.

It's now my morning and evening ritual. I don't drink coffee or tea, so it's a nice set of bookends to the day.

Ok, Vonstella, I will try to rinse it out since I can't stand the smell which doesn't totally dissipate.
