Tip of the Week – Apple Cider Vinegar for Your Hair and Scalp

Published on: 03/23/2021 10:31 am

Are you wondering what the buzz is about apple cider vinegar and if it’s good for your hair? Here’s what I recommend: ⁠

  • Apple cider vinegar can be used as clarifier to remove residue from products and the environment that build up on the hair and scalp. ⁠
  • Combine one part apple cider vinegar and five parts water. Use as a rinse after shampooing. Check with your stylist before using as those with a sensitive scalp may need to dilute more. (Hint: Apply the mixture with a spray bottle or pour it directly onto your hair. Allow it to sit for around three to five minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Then, condition as normal.) ⁠
  • Apple cider vinegar helps exfoliate scalp skin, which can help with dandruff and reduce dry itchy scalp. ⁠
  • Those with skin disorders, skin abrasions or hypersensitive scalp should avoid apple cider vinegar as it may promote further skin irritation. ⁠
  • Always consult with your stylist before starting a new clarification regimen. ⁠
