Can Apple Cider Vinegar Stop Hair Loss?

Reverse Hair Loss with Apple Cider Vinegar

I’ve been taking apple cider vinegar (ACV) for years to help me lose weight and to improve my skin. But I only learned recently that it can help you with hair loss. I've lost more hair in two years than I’d like to admit. When I heard from a friend that apple cider vinegar can improve hair quality and stop hair loss, I had to try it for myself. And this is what I discovered.

I’ve been using an apple cider vinegar hair rinse about twice a week for almost a year now. I’ve stopped losing so much hair and the hair that remains is healthier, shinier, and stronger. If you’re interested in reversing or stopping your own hair loss, or even just in repairing damaged hair, then this article will show you how apple cider vinegar can help.

I will first discuss how apple cider vinegar can benefit your hair and then will give you some tips for how to use it based on my personal experience.

How Apple Cider Vinegar Helps Your Hair.

Apple cider vinegar nourishes hair and create a healthy scalp in a number of different ways:

  • Nutrients. ACV provides a number of much-needed nutrients, such as potassium, which is essential for hair growth. It also helps smooth your hair, reducing the incidence of split ends.
  • Protective Layer, Apple cider vinegar also repairs damaged hair by restoring the hair’s protective layer. Excess shampooing, UV rays, and air pollutants all weaken this protective layer.
  • pH balance. Shampooing typically increases pH factor. Human hair is acidic, with a pH factor of 4 to 6. Apple cider vinegar has a pH factor of about 4. Using ACV helps restore your hair’s natural pH balance, which also helps maintain your hair’s protective layer.
  • A healthy scalp. Finally, apple cider vinegar eliminates any nasty chemicals and dead cells from your scalp. This allows the skin to breathe naturally and opens the pores in the skin. A healthy scalp prevents dandruff build-up. ACV also has anti-fungal and antibacterial qualities that can eliminate any itchiness.
  • Cleaning your hair: Mixing ACV rinse with 1 teaspoon of baking soda helps remove nasty chemicals from your hair. If you are adding baking soda to the ACV rinse, then you don't even need to use commercial shampoo.

How to Make Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse

Making the apple cider vinegar hair rinse is easy.

Simply take one part warm water and mix it with one part organic apple cider vinegar. That's it.

Don't use cold or hot water. Hot water can damage your hair, while cold water may not be able to get rid of the chemicals and dandruff on your scalp.

Did You Know?

The malic acid in ACV treats fungal and bacterial infections.

How to Use the ACV Rinse

Wash your hair with normal shampoo as usual. While your hair is wet, apply the apple cider vinegar rinse to your hair.

If you have time, leave the ACV in your hair for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing off. This will maximize the benefits of apple cider vinegar by making sure all the nutrients and enzymes get absorbed. Then rinse your hair as usual.

Some people use ACV hair rinse without diluting it, which makes the treatment even stronger and more effective. However, first-time users should dilute ACV with water just to make sure there’s no adverse reaction.

If you add a bit of baking soda to the ACV rinse, you don't even need to use a shampoo.

Try to avoid getting any of the ACV in your eyes, as it can sting pretty badly.

What Kind of Apple Cider Vinegar Should I Buy?

Many commercial ACV products are not good for hair loss treatment.

While buying apple cider vinegar, make sure it is organic. Organic ACV is made from organic apples and does not contain harmful chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides.

Also, look for a raw and unpasteurized brand of ACV. Only unpasteurized cider vinegar contains the "mother" of ACV, which is the essential enzyme providing all the health benefits of apple cider vinegar.

You can choose between powder ACV and liquid ACV. I have used liquid ACV and found it very effective as a hair product.

Notice how cloudy the organic ACV is compared to the non-organic.

Start Seeing Results With the Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse

Apple cider vinegar is not a quick fix for hair loss. You will need to give it some time.

The other benefits start to show a bit more immediately. Your hair will look and feel a lot better after just a few rinses. I don’t even need to use conditioner anymore! Your results may depend on your natural disposition, the quality of water, and the environment.

Finally, ACV is good for the environment since it is a natural product, and you won't be pouring chemicals down your drain and into the environment as you would with commercial hair products.

Read this article on how to use ACV for hair loss.

Did You Know?

Apple cider vinegar contains potassium, an essential mineral for healthy hair.

Apple Cider Vinegar Diet

Apple cider vinegar has a number of other health benefits in addition to helping give you silky, smooth, and shiny hair.

It can also be used for skincare, giving you smooth, young-looking skin while also eliminating acne and other skin blemishes.

But the most popular use of apple cider vinegar is for weight loss. It improves your metabolism, helping you burn fat more quickly, and makes you feel fuller so you end up eating less.

Because of all its health benefits, have made apple cider vinegar a part of my diet. When mixed with honey, it tastes amazing.

Is Apple Cider Vinegar Right for You?

To summarize, hair loss treatments can be tricky, and you may have already tried a number of different options. However, before giving up and trying something extreme and expensive like hair re-plant/transplant, you should give apple cider vinegar a try.

It is a natural and safe hair loss treatment.

Do you use any hair products to stop hair loss?

      ACV is a really popular against hair fall but only in the begging. If you already have bald spots vinegar won't help you regrow your hair. But it's a great way not to lose more.

What i can see from the comments is that ACV will treat dandruff but my question is will it help me regrow hair in my bald spots? If yes how do i apply it during a shower? Thanks in advance.

      Hi Belle, going by the description of how you applied ACV rinse to your hair, it seems you have followed the correct process. There is no reason for you to lose excess hair. My personal experience is that when I apply ACV hair rinse, it is a transparent mixture and as such, I tend to notice the hair fall more prominently than I would if I was to use the conditioner. However, if you are concerned, please discontinue the use.

      Maybe if the vinegar is left on the face for a period of time but asa diluted solution that is rinsed it is probably used as a cleanser in that application.

      Each treatment described is adaptive on an individual basis so that you have greatly addressed the use of apple cider vinegar from a personal perspective. I like your article for these reasons and find the information about skin care a great use; thank you!

      Doesn´t putting it on the face stimulate hair growth in the face? I mean, since it is stimulating hair follicle, and many use them for regrowth (also men use them for growing beard).

      Hi Hub Author.

      I'm excited to share my own experiences with you about trying ACV for my skin and my hair. Like you said, i think ACV with the brand Bragg is better than ones are sold in grocery stores. I've used ACV that I bought from Walmart and also I've gotten good results. Before going to sleep, I wash my face with warm water and sea salt ( I have had a bad acne on face and my back). I pat dry and apply ACV+honey+warm water 4:1:4 on my face by a cotton pad. The following morning, my face leaves less oil and pimples were healed. For my hair, I mix ACV with water 1:1 and apply on my hair with massaging in few minutes. I rinse it with water, then with shampoo to take the smell away. After blowing dry, I see my hair looks shiny and really healthy. Dandruff has gone away. Shoud I keep ACV in one of my routine beauty tips? Is it safe for any kind of skin?

      Hi Patty, usually it is ideal to clean your hair with shampoo first, and then apply ACV on clean hair so that it is able to get rid of any residual dandruff, as well as restore the pH balance. Rinse off ACV after 15-30 minutes. Sometimes, I just leave the ACV in my hair and let it dry out.

      Hi Thinninghiar, thank you for your question. I wouldn't use baking soda to wash hair on a daily basis or even on an alternate day basis. It could cause too much dryness. The best way to use it is once in a fortnight or once a month. Regarding ACV and baking soda being used simultaneously - that's fine. Use baking soda and shampoo to wash hair, and then apply ACV as a conditioner.

      Hi Alvin, thanks for the question. To my knowledge, ACV does not turn hair grey.

      Hi Mamk, please use unfiltered and unpasteurized ACV. If it is also organic, that's preferred. Hope this helps.

      Hi Ben, if your scalp is not sensitive, it is OK to never rinse it. However, you may find your hair getting a bit too dry.

      Hi Star, yes the facial skin is more sensitive. Please test it on a small part on your face first.

      Hey. I have pretty sensitive skin. I tried acv on the skin of my hand. Nothing seems to have happened. So is it ok now if i use it on my face? Or is it possible that the skin on my face will react defferently?

      HI Riffat, please put half a cup water in half a cup ACV and use it as conditioner. Some people use it undiluted, which is fine, but it is best to start with diluted ACV.

      Hi Jia, hopefully, you may not need anti-dandruff shampoo once you start using ACV. What you need to do is shampoo your hair with normal shampoo, and then apply ACV like a conditioner. Leave it in the hair for 15-30 min and then rinse off. This should remove the dandruff problem completely.
