Apple Cider Vinegar For Hair Loss

By Olivia |

IF you are experiencing thinning hair or hair loss, a wonderful home remedy that can help is apple cider vinegar.

It is normal to lose about 100 strands of hair every day, and usually even more when we shampoo. When this normal hair loss becomes a concern is when the hair’s natural growth cycle is for some reason disrupted so that it is shedding faster than it is growing.

apple cider vinegar for hair<– Get the right apple cider vinegar here.

When hormones called androgens are to blame, hair follicles become damaged over time and hinder their ability to produce strong, healthy strands. The hair that does grow is thinner and weaker, brittle even. Other hair follicles die.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is chock full of nutrients and it will balance the pH of your scalp. It has been shown to thicken hair and remove dead skin cells that can clog follicles and hurt your hair’s ability to grow. And if you ever have an itchy scalp or dandruff, this vinegar will help with that too.

In his book Apple Cider Vinegar Miracle Health System, author Paul Bragg explains how this wonder vinegar can help with hair loss. “The high acidity (organic malic acid) plus the powerful enzymes (the “mother’s” life chemicals) in ACV kill the bottle bacillus, a germ responsible for many scalp and hair conditions … (including) dandruff, itching scalp, thinning hair and often baldness.”

Bragg - Apple Cider Vinegar, gallon, 1 liquid

According to Bragg, this bacteria can cause clogs that keep our natural oils from our hair. “The oil-starved hairs either fall out or break off, causing hair thinning and baldness.”

Apple cider vinegar also stimulates what he calls our hair’s “oil cans” for healthier growth.

Using Apple Cider Vinegar For Hair Loss

The Right Apple Cider Vinegar For Hair Loss

Before you run out to the store to grab a bottle of the wonder vinegar not all apple cider vinegar is created equally. To reap its many benefits you have to get unfiltered, unpasteurized, organic apple cider vinegar with what is called the “mother.” The mother is a stringy substance formed during the last stage of fermentation, and is the part with the most healing properties. This vinegar is cloudy and should be shaken before you use it to get all the good bits that settle to the bottom. The most commonly available organic ACV is Bragg’s brand. It used to be you had to order it online or get it at a natural foods store. But I have found the economical gallon jugs of the apple cider vinegar in vitamin stores and quart size bottles at the regular supermarket.

Remember, nothing works on everyone. Because hair grows about half an inch a month, more or less, it will take two months or so to really see any results.

Apple Cider Vinegar Helps More than Just Hair  

Another way to get the benefits of apple cider vinegar is to ingest it. Apple cider vinegar is wonderful for achieving overall health. Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, proclaimed apple cider vinegar’s many healing benefits more than 2,500 years ago. This vinegar can help weight loss, weak finger nails, arthritis, coughs, constipation, diarrhea, ear infection, sore eyes, fatigue, acid reflux, headaches and more, including hair loss.

You can also get your daily dose of apple cider vinegar by using it in salads and marinades, and in place of lemon juice in some recipes. Or spruce up plain potato chips with a sprinkle of ACV! How to Grow Hair says, it’s good – and good for you.

We know you’re busy. If you’re thinking of trying apple cider vinegar for your hair, buy it today.

Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar by Bragg (1 gallon) <—-

UPDATE: ACV is not expensive – as you can see above – but why waste it? Some people have had success with a more diluted mixture of 1/2 cup of ACV per quart of water (or 1/8 cup per 8 ounces). Start there and see what happens in a few weeks.

The other element that can definitely help if you want to try ACV for hair is taking it internally along with applying it topically to your scalp. Drink apple cider vinegar (the non-pasteurized, non-filtered kind only) mixed into a glass of water at least once a day.

Others have reported success in regrowing hair when using ACV on the scalp and drinking it as well with a little addition:  2 tablespoons ACV, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda in 12 ounces of water or juice twice a day, then, after a month of drinking this mix, cutting back to four times a week.

But these are just guidelines. The amounts vary from people who have had success using apple cider vinegar for to regrow hair. Some have seen new hair growth with 1 tablespoon of ACV and just a pinch of baking soda, while others don’t use baking soda at all. Others start with just 1 teaspoon in a glass of water three times a day.

Apple cider vinegar is good for the body inside and out. ACV benefits are many. But be aware that ACV treatments can also deplete iodine in your body, so you may want to supplement to keep your stores of this trace element up. Kelp is an excellent source of iodine; you can either get kelp supplements or add it to your diet. Arame and wakame are other seaweeds rich in iodine you can eat to ensure you keep your levels up. But if you take a multivitamin, check its ingredients first as it may already have all the iodine you need.

TIP: Again, I hate wasting stuff. A great way to apply your apple cider vinegar rinse is to store it in a spray bottle. You’ll have less waste spritzing your scalp and hair with the ACV treatment.

    Is this true about the hair. Have you or someone you know tried this and had positive results? Where is the best place to buy the natural unfiltered kind? Also how many of the capsul or tablet type is beneficial for daily dosages?

    Raw ACV works when ingested to stop hair from over shedding. I have had this problem in the past. I begin taking ACV (BRAGGS) that I purchased on the organics aisle of Krogers for High blood pressure. It helped immediately. And I noticed my hair brush was not full of hair either. I take it for medicinal purposes. But my hair looks beautiful. You can take it with honey, 2 tsps. with the ACV. I was taking it 3 times a day, 2 tsps. of ACV in 8 oz of water. Now just 2 times a day. It works wonders. And the honey makes you have lots of energy.

    Several months ago, I was taking ACV pills everyday, I noticed my hair was fuller, stronger and felt healthier. Even my nails were really tough (i clean houses for a living and nails don’t usually last) You don’t really notice how great it works until you stop using it, for the last couple of months I’ve neglected to take them, and now I definitly notice my hair falls out easily, my nails keep breaking, I even get more blemishs!! If you wonder if it works, IT DOES!! And its even been good for food digestion, not soo much bloating with certain foods! ENJOY!

    acv can be your best friend, it does work for hair, it stopped mine from falling out, and cured dry scalp issue i had for 15 years, within days. and it keeps it straight enough to not have to get perm every 4-6 weeks. so its worth trying, and its good for deodorant also, havent used deodorant in 2-3 years, only acv , no mixing with water, just raw organic apple cider vinegar in spray bottle and it works better than aluminum filled store bought deodorant

    well as a person who has taken many measure to achieve a healthy hair and scalp, i must say that ACV (i use BRAGGS organic with “Mother” like person above) has been the missing piece to my puzzle. Prior to using this ACV (drinking twice a day and hair soak) my scalp was okay but i still had little problem spots, but after 5 days of using it, i have noticed such a big difference, my scalp is starting to feel undescribably healthy and my small and few dry patches are starting to clear up a bit. As far as GROWING more hair, i think it is too early to say but as the article says, follicles can get clogged (which i feel that mine are) and only time will tell if i begin to grow more hair. But so far it is most certainly a start. Even after using ACV dont just stop there, there are so many things that can help one achieve a healthy scalp and overall body.

    Hi. I started taking the ACV (diluted with water) orally today (2 times) and when I started applying it on my scalp tonight (showering). In around how much time should I see a difference? Thank you

    I have been using Braggs ACV for last two months, I don’t know about the hair growth but it has done good for my general health. Now I have started to add a spoon(T) of honey to ACV in the mornings. will see how it adds on to the present one.

  13. Cee-Cee Says:
    July 29th, 2011 at 10:09 am

    I was applying ACV on my scalp, undiluted and then following up with massaging water on my scalp. My hair grew approximately 2 inches and was thick. It only took 1-2 months to start seeing the growth.

  14. Jason Says:
    August 6th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    I’ve been doing this and drinking ACV while taking Saw Palmetto, Silica and B Vitamin mix for over 2 weeks now. I was shinny bald on top of my head but now I can grow tons of fuzz. I sure hope this hair growth continues to get better.

    I have been drinking ACV for about 3 months I didnt now it helped hair grow, but i was wondering what made my hair so full, now I know. But what I do know is its a great toner, it helps my indigestion and my headaches. As soon as I slack off I realize how great it is. Enjoy.

    I’m about a week into drinking ACV twice a day (2 tbsp in water). I’m hoping for good results for hair growth. I need to hurry up and take a “before” photo of myself for comparison later on down the road.

    September 12th, 2011 at 6:43 am

    I am applying ACV mixture (1:1 ACV and water) on hair every morning after shampooing since 1 month now.
    I must say that ACV has done wonders for me as far as dandruff is concerned. But the problem I am facing since past week is that i am having severe itching in my scalp.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.


  20. Olivia Says:
    September 21st, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    Hi Rizzzz,

    I’m so glad ACV has helped your dandruff, but I’m surprised about the itchiness. After all apple cider vinegar is well known for its ability to stop itchy scalp!

    This might be a case of too much of a good thing!

    Dilute your rinse more; try 2:1 instead of 1:1.
    Then use this rinse less frequently. Every other day or even just twice a week.

    You can also try neem oil (I like this one). Neem has many wonderful properties (read about neem hair oil here), including soothing itchy scalp and strengthening and moisturizing hair.

    Keep us posted.

    ACV also works great as a detangler if your hair is tangled as a result of residues from conditioners. You can rinse with a mix of ACV and water, or spray the hair with a mix of ACV and water in a spritz bottle.

    I suggest using filtered water if possible, to reduce the chlorine and fluoride to your locks and scalp.

    Im 47, my hair started falling out after aquiring an auto immune syndrome. It may be due to the pharmaceuticals my doctor prescribed. Each time I washed my hair Id loose hand-fulls. Dreadful because my hair had always been long and very thick. I started using ACV today. The first step was to mix half ACV and purified water in an empty shampoo bottle. After moistening my hair in the shower I saturated my hair with the mixture waited 5 minutes, rinsed it out. Then I shampooed as usual, rinsed out the shampoo. Then saturated my hair and scalp again with the mixture. waited 5 minutes. rinsed it out. I did not use conditioner or moisturizer as I usually do. You would not beleive how soft my hair is and tangle free! I did not loose as much hair with shampooing as I usually do Im going to keep using ACV to regrow my hair to full thickness. It is a wonderful product of nature!

  31. Olivia Says:
    December 8th, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    Interesting tip, Dee! I like the V8 idea, but doesn’t the Bragg’s Aminos make the drink really salty? I use Aminos in cooking in place of soy sauce.

  32. Dee Says:
    December 9th, 2011 at 11:59 am

    Hi Olivia,

    It probably is too salty for a lot of people, I am a salt lover with low blood pressure. I am sure it can be left out or cut down.
    This combo jump started an experiement I am trying, I have had sever thinning and hair loss for over 30 years. Since May, my hair has improved so much, everyone notices, it is just wonderful.

    i am 22 years old, and i used to have long nice thick hair. Since last year i have been noticing that my hair is falling a lot due to oily scalp, so i cut it really short (not even 1 inch) and now its been a year..i have the same problem. cutting the hair really short not solving my problem, now my scalp is kind of visible.

    will apple cider vinegar help me grow my hair back? i dont want long hair but i definitely want it thicker..does anyone have answer?

    Unfortunatelly my hair is not improving, I’m 55 and have some hair loss. I’m taking Bragg’s Apple cider since September and I rinse my hair with 50/50 water and ACV. Do you have any suggetions?

  35. Carin Says:
    December 27th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    My grandmother rinsed her extremely long dark hair every single time she washed it since she was a child in vinegar. She always told me it was to make her hair shiny because the vinegar cut the soap that was left in your hair. Not one day in her life did she experience any hair loss. She was organic long before it was fashionable too. Bought natural bread and kept her peanut butter in the refrigerator back in the 1960’s. Anyway, I am a new Synthroid user suffering the side effects of hair loss, and lots of it. Never experienced it on Armour so I was blessed. Now, however, I am hitting the panic button! I have the Braggs ACV and am heading for the shower now! Grandma told me to drink it when I was pregnant because the baby would be born with hair. Well now maybe no one will see my scalp by the end of the week! I am a huge Braggs fan so no plain old vinegar will do. When this starts working you and every one else will know

    I started using ACV about a week ago. I take it internally – 2 tblsp. with 2 tblsp. honey in a cup of warm water first thing every morning. The honey makes it more palatable and is also good for you. I also sponge ACV on my face – 50/50 with water every morning and night after washing my face and before using moisturiszer and makeup. I also rinse my hair, (after shampooing and rinsing out the shampoo) with 50/50 ACD and water. My face is already looking smoother and more ‘alive’ with a noticeable reduction in large pores. The most noticeable improvement however has been with my hair after only one use. I did not rinse the ACD out of my hair (the smell goes when it dries). My hair is very noticeably smoother and shinier, split ends have gone, my blond highlights are brighter and my hair looks thicker. I have very fine, very straight hair which is getting thinner. Usually, when I go out in the wind, it blows all over the place and looks a mess. After using ACD I was surprised that my hair just fell back into place. I am looking forward to noticing more general health improvements as time goes by. I don’t usually go for ‘gimmicky’ claims but I highly recommend ACD. It does work!

I hope this will finally work for me…i’m going to start rinsing my hair with this but i need to know, should i shampoo first, then use the ACV and leave it on or rinse it out?? I’m also going to take this internally with my juice everyday! 2 TBSP of ACV with 16oz of juice or water. I can’t wait to share my results with you all. I hope this will work for all of us!

    Hello Dot,
    I’m so happy to hear that u are seeing noticeable difference using ACV. I was hoping u could kindly answer this for me. I read that u dilute your ACV 50/50 with water for when u rinse your hair. Is it supposed to be diluted with water or can one just use the ACV as it is without diluting it for a more potent solution? I would very much appreciate if you get back with me a.s.a.p. Thanx in advance!

    Hello Dot,
    I used the ACV with equal amount of water on my face in the morning after i wash it with neautragina unscented bar soap and at night, again, after i wash it, but i notice as soon as i put some of the ACV on my face, it burns a bit and my face turns red and my blemishes and pimples seem to multiply! My face does go back to normal once the vinegar dries out. Have u ever encountered that problem to? I hope to hear from u soon. Thanx again in advance! x x x

    Hi All,
    Over the past month, I have noticed that my hair has become thinner and I can no longer deny that I have a balding spot near the crown of my head. I’m 33 years old and have recently had a lot of corrective coloring done (over the past 3 months) from blonde to brown. I started using new hair products as well such as volumizing powder and amplifying hair spray and I’m afraid I’ve killed my hair. I just started the Bragg’s ACV hair treatment and internal treatment yesterday and I have my fingers crossed. I can say that my hair is very soft and shiny since applying and the annoying itch I have has been less. I’ve also stopped using the volumizing powder. If anyone has anything else to try..please share! This is rather upsetting as all of you know.

    I am 23 years old and I have been losing my hair since I had mono last year and the doctors can not figure out why. They did all the tests that they could, even my thyroid. I have been taking vitamins, and expensive hair products, and stuff to amplify my hair. But nothing is working so I am willing to try anything so I am not bald. I already cut 8 inches off of my used to be long thick hair, hoping that I would restart my hair regrowth again, but that did not even work. So I am willing to try anything to get my thick hair back, so here we go I am going to try the acv

    great to read the results of some and wishing luck to those who r starting like me (started from y’day 20th March, 2012). i pray i get amazing results.

    my top portion of the head has thin hair (esp crown) for more than 15 years now and the amount i’ve been laughed at (by relatives n friends) and insulted in parlours and hair dressers has been v demotivating and stressful for me. i wished they gave cure to me instead of talking bad and insulting my hair like this. somewhere i read about agv and hv bot heinz’s agv from nature’s basket as that was only available in mumbai. when i find organic one, i’ll surely buy, but no luck yet. no probs, even am sure this will work better.
    god bless u all with good hair and good health :)

    I am a middle-aged female who had been losing my hair for almost 5 years when I read about HVC. The itching that had accompanied the hairloss almost completely stopped for about 3 months after using an HVC rinse after shampooing…that is, until recently. I was using a cheap non-organic brand I bought at the grocery store and the itching and loss (though not as bad as before) returned. No “Mother” there! Today I used Bragg’s for the first time…huge difference in the aroma and appearance of Bragg’s v. the grocery store brand. I am going to try taking it internally tomorrow. I really believe in the concept of ACV…I KNOW it stopped my itching, and when my itching returned, so did my hairloss. I am telling everybody who has hair issues to try it. I’ll keep you updated. :-)

    Oops! Meant ACV, not HVC! Too many interruptions! Perhaps the boss can change my copy. Thanks!

    I’m 38 and have been losing hair for the past 3 years. My doc has done every kind of blood test and I’ve tried otc hair growth formulas and even a prescription steroid shampoo. The steroid shampoo did help with regrowth somewhat, but my hair was STILL falling out a lot! I tried the acv rinse for 1 month now and I barely see any hair in the shower drain!!! I switched to Bragg’s acv 2 weeks ago and noticed a significant difference in less hair loss. I can’t tell yet if there is new hair growth. I will be adding acv INTERNALLY from now on to see if that helps :)

    I have been adding 1 tsp, to 12oz of water 2-3 times a day for about 2 months now. Also, I put this on my scalp in the shower. First I shampoo, then on the scalp for 4-5 minutes, then rinse and finish with conditioner. My hair is so smooth! So far: my blood sugar levels have stabilized( I am pre-diabetic), my acne has cleared up, my energy level has had a boost, I have lost 5 lbs, my appetite has decreased, my menstrual cycle isn’t as punishing as it has been and because of this my mood has stabilized and the condition of my hair is so much healthier. I use this as a natural deoderant with soaking a cotton ball and swabbing the armpit area, allowing it to dry and the vinegar smell goes away. Seriously, I am so happy I stumbled across the ACV by accident. I only bought it initially because my hens were having some egg-laying problems and a local farmer advised I buy this and add it to their water, which fixed their problems.

    I have been suffering with hair loss for the last 8 years. Just last year I had almost lost all the hair in the crown of my head. I went to the doctor and he told me my hair would never grow back. I started drinking 2 TBSP of Bragg’s ACV with 4 oz of water twice daily 3 weeks ago. I also started applying a mixture of 50/50 ACV/Rose water on my scalp every night. I’m happy to say that my hair is finally growing. I also use it as a toner for my face. The only thing I’m doing different is taking Biotin, MSM, and Royal Jelly. I hope this helps. For those of you who are skeptical, please be patient. My scalp was scarred and there was no hair in the crown of my head. Now, I have hair growth. Good luch!

    ACV does help with hair growth. Make sure you dilute and don’t use daily because it can dry your hair out. I have noticed a big difference after a month of use. I use it at least once a week after I shampoo and condition. It is my final step and I do not rinse out.

    I have read about ACV and I hope it will work for me. I have very itchy scalp and my hair is getting very thin. I will try this on and inform you later when I get some good results. I use Noni fruit with scrap coconut on my hair. Is it a good way to regrow or help the itchy?
    Best regards.

    I’ve seborrheic dermatitis on a dry scalp. Drank a tablespoon of vinegar diluted in water daily, and applied the mixture of 50/50 twice a week. No other supplements/vitamins are taken.
    By week three, I gave up because my hair loss became worse. I still drink the mixture, but reduce to once a week. It helps with my indigestion problem. I prefer using the castor oil method better for hair growth. Castor oil also moisturizes hair without hair conditioner, unlike apple vinegar.
    Apple vinegar method seems to be a good choice if one has oily scalp. Try it & good luck!

    Thank you for the encouragement.

    I just used ACV for the first time this past sunday, and I must say THIS STUFF REALLY WORKS! I had the bottle in my kitchen cabinet for months,telling other people about the goodness of ACV, but forgetting to use it in my wash day ritual. Well,never again will I forget to use ACV. I have suffered with eczema and servere dry itchy scalp my whole life. After appling the rinse to my hair it was like my scalp said, “THANK YOU FINALLY!” to me. The severe itching has stopped immediately. No flaking of the scalp, or shedding (big issue for me) after I rinsed the ACV out, and shampooed and conditioned my hair. My hair is shinny and even was soften and straighten some by the ACV. I’m 10 months transitioning from a relaxer and will never go without ACV again. I’m going to purchase the Bragg’s brand for my next wash day. If you are African-American and transition from a relaxer you need ACV in your life. I will use ACV till the day I leave this earth. Amazing stuff!

    I am going to start using ACV. I have had hair thinning for the past 3 years. I also developed a bald spot on the front top of my head the size of a quarter. I went to the dermatologist and nothing they did seemed to help. I am praying this is my solution to my problem. I will update in a month with any results I have.

    Most of the comments are from people new to ACV use, and hoping for hair growth. It would be good to hear from long term users about hair growth, the ones who used ACV for a year or more, after losing their hair.
