Baldness and apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar has been touted for its many useful health benefits. Drinking it daily can help with everything from heartburn to regularity and it can also be used topically to help treat a number of different skin disorders, including eczema and warts. It makes you wonder if there is something that apple cider vinegar is not capable of curing. The next thing you will hear is that it can literally make you look 20 years younger.

Well guess what …

For all of you men (and women) who wish to have the strong wavy locks of your youth, it turns out that apple cider vinegar can help. That’s right, while it may not be exactly what old Ponce Deleon was looking for, apple cider vinegar can actually help reverse alopecia and remove a decade or two from your scalp.

That is how

Scientists now believe that the excessive accumulation of DHT around the root follicle is what causes the hair follicles to die and become unable to produce new hair growth. Basically, DHT builds up around the follicle as wax that blocks the blood supply, causing it to shrink and eventually die. Organic apple cider can really help dissolve this extra DHT built up around the follicle and promote new hair growth. Its acids and enzymes can also help eliminate certain pathogens associated with excess DHT and hair loss due to alopecia.

In addition to helping prevent hair loss, apple cider vinegar also helps balance the pH of your hair and scalp, which also helps prevent dandruff and leaves your hair looking shiny and healthy. It will also kill any other bacteria or fungal problems that may be going on there.

You can find many natural shampoos and rinses that use apple cider vinegar online or at your local health food store.

Beauty tip

Keep a 16 oz bottle in the shower. To fill the bottle pour 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water and then add about 30 drops of essential oils. You can use a mixture of sweet orange, palmarosa, and lavender. It will leave a nice scent on your hair and make it really soft. Use only a small amount, let it sit for a minute, then rinse. The jar usually lasts about 5 days before you have to refill it.
