All it means, blueandblessed, is that your hair cuticles are flat when this happens your hair tends to relect light, or shine. Straight hair generally has flat cuticles. Whereas many curly haired people don't because of hair processes (relaxers, perms, and etc). This raises the cuticle and results in really frizzy hair.

You ever notice how dry damaged hair sticks up in all different directions. Especially hair with split ends? That right there is an example of cuticles NOT laying flat.
I have read though that an ACV rinse or a cold water rinse can close up your cuticles and make cuticles lay down better.

@Zan- Ok I see your point as well...

I have done some ACV rinses to balance my ph and to treat the porosity in some damaged areas of my hair, and it works really well, and my hair did not smell afterwards. For me it seems that the simpler and more natural the remedy, the better it works...
