I wanted to post something here that I have tried in conjuction with ACV. A friend who is a Wholistic practitioner told me to try Borax with ACV. I mix it in a cup (no certain amount) until closely resembles a paste and then I put it all over my scalp but paying more attention to the worse areas. I let it set for 5 minutes and then I rinse it out. Something else I decided to try is Care Conditioner after this Borax and ACV treatment (you can get this at Beauty Supply and it comes in a gallon jug). This conditioner has no perfume or colors added to it. It is pretty much odorless, so you won't get the "your hair smells great" comments, but your scalp will feel better and your hair will look great!!!! Hope this helps someone!!!
