“So I had this patch on my scalp that was so itchy, constantly itch, itch, itching. I found a post that said try ACV as a rinse. Wow!! what a difference, I have been using it and my scalp is much improved, not healed completely yet…but MUCH better! YA! My hair is so soft, I smell like vinegar but who cares, it is working for me.”
I also found some advice on the treatment of dandruff and itchy scalp using apple cider vinegar and other natural remedies:
The following natural remedies will help put you “head and shoulders” above the commercially available toxic formulas:
Dilute 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar (organic is preferable) with I/2 cup of water. Apply to scalp being careful not to get solution in the eyes or on the face then rinse. Repeat the treatment until condition disappears. You may need to repeat daily for a week. Alternatively you can purchase our Organic Herbal Toner and use neat.
Warm 1/2 a cup of jojoba or cold pressed olive oil on low heat in a small saucepan and apply to the scalp (test temperature first). For best results leave in over night then brush the hair and scalp thoroughly. Shampoo out as normal. You may need to repeat this treatment 1-2 times a week until the condition alleviates.
White clay is excellent for scalp disorders such as dandruff, psoriasis and alopecia. Mix 1/2 a cup of white clay with water. Water should be added gradually until a smooth paste is achieved. Coat the hair and scalp with clay and leave to dry. You may want to wrap the hair in cling wrap. Shampoo out as normal. Repeat as necessary.
The following essential oils may be added to the oil and clay treatments for their beneficial effects on the scalp and hair: Clary sage, Geranium, Lavender, Rosemary, Sandalwood & Ylang Ylang.
Try ACV apple cider vinegar. It may just be the solution for you!!!
