Please do the ACV rinse first. It can remove build up. You will not likely have any adverse reaction if you did it afterward. I suggest doing it first to rid your scalp and hair of any build up after cleansing.

I'm going to disagree here and think that you should do the ACV rinse another time especially if you have just shampooed your hair in preparation for the henna. ACV is acidic and in combination with henna the overall effect may be too drying all in one go. Henna is also acidic and by itself can be drying and most of us here need to follow up henna treatments with DCs and cowashes until normal moisture levels are restored.

Since it's your first time, I think you should be conservative and shampoo or clean your hair as you usually do and then proceed with the henna and see how you go.

Then you can start off with the ACV rinses once normal moisture levels have returned in between henna treatments and see how you go with that as well. If you keep them separate then it is easier to identify any issues that your hair might have with either one of them. If you do all of it all together, it's harder to work out the source of any issues.

It may be one day you find that your hair will be okay with both a ACV rinse and henna in one sitting but I would only do it if you are more prone than normal to build up that is interfering with the henna dye take up and you don't experience too severe dryness issues post henna.

Just my opinion for what it is worth.

You can henna as often as you like but I would recommend waiting until your hair has returned to nomal moisture level. For me that takes 1 DC after the henna and then one cowash 24-48 hours after that.

I always wanted to try Henna, but I am too chicken Also, I am really a fan of the color changes. But I really, really like to see if it makes the hair softer and easier, at least for some time.

This is an interesting thread that I will continue to follow. I say that b/c theoretically, even though the opinions are different, they all have merit. Personally, I have done as Chrs suggested and ACV rinsed prior to henna for the reasons she cited. Never had a problem. I have delayed ACV as R2D2 mentioned for fear of possible drying. Now, that I use ACV routinely in the 1T/1C ratio, I know my hair won't have unfavorable results in the presence of potentially drying txts like henna, clay, or ayurvedic powders.

Perhaps the amount of ACV, type henna, individual's hair, ingredients in the mix, and the moisturizing ability of the conditioner are factors.

im so late on the thread but will input my two cent @koko you should do ACV last because like it was stated earlier its an Acidified, it closes the hair cuticle and thats exactly what you want after the henna treatment to close your hair cuticle, so u should DT after Henna then use ACV as the hair cuticle sealant and whatever sealant u want to use afterward. the ACV will return the hair Ph back to normal after the chemical dye process. hope my two cent helped

Koko, Plz keep 1 thing in mind. If you decide not to ACV prior to the henna and if you don't use it in the henna, I would definitely NOT RECOMMEND doing an ACV rinse immediately after henna. Actually, I would wait at least 3 or 4 days. Remember, the henna oxidizes and you do not see your "set" color for a couple of days. Feel free to contact someone like Khadija at Henna Sooq or someone else who "specializes" in henna and they will explain this. Hopefully, my experience will not be yours. I wasn't happy with my hair one day because of a new product I tried so I did my normal cleansing (ACV rinse), but I forgot I had just done a henna 2 days prior. Well, needless to say, my henna color was that brighter less preferred color you see when you initially color or henna. So, I went "2 steps backwards" with moving towards my perfect color.
