I wrote an article on Apple Cider Vinegar earlier last year about the wonderful benefits Vinegar can have on your health. However, After I ran across this great article on Apple Cider Vinegar for Hair Loss by Hair Loss Revolution, I decided to write an updated and more in-depth piece about Apple Cider Vinegar and how it can help with Hair Loss and also Detoxify your entire body.
ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) for Hair Loss
Here is a snippet from the article by Hair Loss Revolution I mentioned earlier:
“It Removes Buildup from the Scalp
Scalp buildup is a common occurrence, and it occurs as a result of daily living.
Buildup consists of sebum, dirt, dead skin, hair products, pollution, and even harmful chemicals (such as DHT). This buildup can clog the hair follicles, and this makes it difficult for hair growth to continue.
It Improves Blood Circulation to Hair Follicles
Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA), also known as Male-Pattern Baldness (MPB), is the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women. To understand why this is, it’s important to know how AGA works.”
Okay, so I’m not going to go into how AGA works because Hair Loss Revolution has already done that. I do however recommend that you take time and click on their link above.
Knowing what causes an issue or problem is half the battle in correcting or fixing it. When dealing with hair loss we know that Dandruff, Scratching, Bacteria, and Yeast are a few of the problems. So, how do we correct or fix these? Believe it or not, ACV, when used as a cleanser or shampoo, can combat all of these mentioned issues above because of the properties found in the product, one of which is Malic Acid.
With its antiseptic abilities, Malic Acid will aid in the relief of scratching, bacteria and yeast growth. Being sure to buy ACV with the mother in it and using it on a regular basis are two of the most important things to remember. Without the right kind and consistency, you will not get the benefits or relief previously discussed.
“Make Homemade ACV Shampoo
- Apple Cider Vinegar (1 cup)
- Water (1 cup)
- Rosemary (1 bunch)
- Jojoba Oil (1/4 cup)
- Peppermint Essential Oil (10 drops)
Steep the rosemary in boiling water, remove from heat and allow to steep until room temperature. Discard the rosemary, and pour the rosemary tea into a shampoo container. Combine the rest of the ingredients, and stir well.
Lather the mixture into wet hair, and massage the shampoo into your scalp for at least 3 minutes. Allow to absorb for another three minutes, and then rinse thoroughly.”

Detoxifying Your Body
Everyone has garbage in their systems. Over time, bad eating habits, especially too many processed foods lead to a buildup of toxins in your body. Detoxifying your body using natural products is the best and most effective way to get rid of the garbage and build up. Also, by using natural products, you will benefit in more ways than one. Unlike prescriptions and over the counter medicines, natural products have multiple vitamins, minerals, and acids that help your body function properly.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is one of these natural products and because of its properties will detoxify and clean out your body, keeping it functioning at the top of the charts. By detoxifying, you are also aiding in skin health and hair growth. Inside and out this product is golden.
Having a spoonful or two of ACV in a glass with warm water and honey is a great way to keep your insides clean on a daily basis. This is a quick and simple way to cleanse your body. Below is one of my favorite recipes and go to drinks to keep my body detoxed and cleansed. It has a few more ingredients but in no way is it complex.
This is my recipe for Good Girl Moonshine
- 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar with the mother
- 1 tsp ginger (ground)
- Ice cubes
- 16 ounces of water
- Sweeten to taste with your preferred non-sugar sweetener (Honey works well)
- I like to add a few drops of lemon oil, but don’t be afraid to experiment
This not only helps with detoxifying your body but can also help with food cravings. Just 1 Tbsp before a meal will help to curb your appetite.
With all of the information and links that have been provided above, you should now know what Apple Cider Vinegar is, how it can help with hair growth and how you can use it to detoxify your body.
