‘Can Apple Cider Vinegar Cure Hair Loss?’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Carly

Question: is it true that apple cider vinegar can cure hair loss? What do you do with it – drink it or put it straight onto your head? Can you mix it with shampoo or conditioner? thx

Will Apple Cider Vinegar Cure Hair Loss?Answer: Hi Carly. No, no matter what you do with it apple cider vinegar will not cure or treat hair loss. The reason it is often linked with hair care is because it is an ancient remedy for making the hair shine and treating dandruff that is said to have been favoured by the Romans.

The only real benefit we are aware of is that apple cider vinegar can be a good clarifying hair rinse as it helps to remove all traces of product build up on your scalp. Build up left behind by styling products or shampoo can clog the follicles, leading to scalp conditions such as dandruff, and – in extreme cases – may also cause hair loss.

By ensuring your scalp and hair is thoroughly clean it will be easier to manage. This can make even thinning hair appear cosmetically fuller but care should be taken to avoid stripping the hair of its natural oils. Doing so can make the hair appear thin and brittle, leading to hair breakage in some severe instances.

To use apple cider vinegar in this way, simply pour some over your scalp after you have washed your hair with shampoo and rinsed the suds out. Massage the vinegar into your scalp then rinse with water. You may follow this with conditioner if desired.

If you are worried about shedding more hair than normal and would like to explore ways in which to remedy this, we recommend you visit a hair loss specialist. An expert will be able to assess your situation and diagnose the precise hair loss condition(s) you are experiencing. They will then be able to tailor a personalised hair loss treatment plan, featuring the clinically-proven component minoxidil, to help prevent further hair fall and promote regrowth.

Additional hair growth boosters may also be beneficial to help speed this up and improve the condition of your hair, and your dedicated treatment advisor will be able to direct you as to the best solution for your specific position.
