Tutorial: How to do an Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse

What's an ACV rinse, and why should I do one? Synthetic hair extensions sometimes have a coating on the outside of the strands that can cause irritation, specifically itching. Some folks don't react to to the coating at all, or don't notice it beyond the normal slight discomfort that goes along with a fresh install.
