Dandruff remedies using apple cider vinegar

Common Questions and Answers about Dandruff remedies using apple cider vinegar


My boyfriend explained to me that every time he had dandruff he would wash his hair with APPLE CIDER VINEGAR which he called "A miracle in a bottle!" He suggested that I try using it and so I did. The waxy junk came out with such ease. All you need to do it buy one bottle and massage it all throughout your DRY hair. LET IT SIT FOR 10 MINUTES BEFORE WASHING!
Do not use hot water-only lukewarm Rinse (final rinse) with a solution of distilled or filtered water and organic apple cider vinegar-with the mother, not filtered! Use right away-don't keep for long. Prior to shampooing use aloe vera leaf gel to massage your scalp and leave on for 30 minutes. As a conditioner use a Tablespoon of coconut oil with some warm water and rub onto your scalp. Do not rinse it!
Hi, try making a simple solution of 3 parts distilled water and 1 part Bragg' s Apple cider vinegar (found at most health food stores, whole foods, Trader Joe's, the vitamin shop and some grocery stores). Put the mixture in a spray bottle, shake well and apply the mixture liberally to your scalp and hair. Using the pads of your fingers, massage the solution in for 30 seconds, let it sit for another minute or so, then rinse it out. Afterwards, sampoo and condition your as you normally would.
You can buy anti-fungal/medicated shampoos at CVS that contain zinc or sulfides which fight fungus and yeasts......take acidopholis pills......soak your head in apple cider vinegar every day before you shower. All this will cure the infection in time (1-2 weeks), however it will not degrease the stubborn sticky sebum that is already there... for this try original palmolive..... don't just shampoo....

After the first 2-3 washes the stickiness should be gone....

Either way, in my research I have read countless forums on scalp issues. Many people have mentioned Apple Cider Vinegar as a remedy for unbalance scalps and pH. People have also mentioned Demodex. These parasites live in our hair follicles, normally without an issue. However, some people may have an over abundance, or have an allergy to them caused by the over abundance. It is worth it to mention to your Derm. and possibly test a sample of hair from one of the irritated areas.
My solution for this is 2 parts 1. Spray Braggs apple cider vinegar on every morning before showering and let it set for 15 min. Apple cider vinegar especially Braggs helps combat fungus and help absorb oil. Use a shampoo 2 times a day like organic excellence. It's a very gentle all natural shampoo and conditioner. Since starting it I noticed itching dissipating etc. I also use a little baking soda each time I wash to remove any flakes built up.
The best way to treat this scalp condition is by using medicated shampoos (salicylic acid, selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione, coal tar) , along with a good clarifying shampoo. Additional home remedies include apple-cider vinegar, fresh lemon juice, baking soda, and dish detergent. I also recommend Diflucan (anti-fungal) pills. In the worst case scenereo accutane will control symptoms... although i do not recommend that as it is very strong and has many unfavorable side effects.
rinsed with apple cider vinegar 4. used green tea oil shampoo from Sally Beauty supply. I didn't know that Green Tea Oil is the code word for Oily Hair. Again just try the dish soap first! My hair is Softer than EVER. Oil gone!
I also tried washing my hair this morning then rinsing it with APPLE CIDER VINEGAR which is ment to be great for hair and removing grease etc... it made my hair feel really clean, and seems to have helped a fair bit too.
I believe it was also posted on here somewhere....was a combination of original Palmolive (dish detergent), apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. I combined a little of each and made a sort of paste and applied it to my crown. Make sure to really lather it in. Then let it sit for 10-15 minutes before you rinse it out.....no conditioner. This helped my hair with one wash. It's been a week now and no problems whatsoever. Yay!!!
-Oregano Oil capsules (orally) 1 a day -Omega-3 capsules (orally) 1 a day -Apple cider vinegar (orally) 1 tbls a day -Vitamin D (orally) 1 a day -Hypo-Allergenic no name Baby shampoo diluted with water 1:10 and wash eyelids 2x's per day with hot clean face cloth. Just wondering if anyone has any other useful suggestions. Possibly something I or my previous Ophthalmic Doctor specialist's may have missed.
then I drew a bath with nice warm/hot water and 3 cups white vinegar. Most of the research calls for apple cider vinegar which I'll be picking up at the store today, but some called for white and I figured after trying everything over-the-counter that exists it wouldn't hurt. I sat in the bath for 30 minutes and have to say, it helped. I was given relief while in the bath and after.
I too am suffering please get nystatin cream prescription and put it in the ear after using white vinegar I know this sounds insane but it works.Vinegar kills fungus and the nystatin helps a lot,When infection is gone to prevent mix 3 parts alcohol,vinegar and peroxide put in ear after swimming or showering and it should never come back It took 2 months and 6 doctors to find one who could help me.heating pad helps too.Good luck to all.
( I also got sick to my stomach - probably too much silver (metal) in my body. I am back to using apple cider vinegar and taking Diatomaceous earth. (1 teaspoon in 8 oz. of water) every day. I am itching and my lesions are starting to pop out on my back again. (to the other commenter: I do not have psoriasis). Back to square one. Will try the black walnut hull and wormwood again and see what happens....
My family doctor told me to swab my ears with a mixture of alcohol and vinegar which gave me some relief for a short period of time. I have been seeing an ENT now, once or twice a week, maybe 8 visits total. We started with antibiotics and drops which worked while I was taking the drops. Then the Doc did a culture and prescibed a new antibiotic, a creame and new drops. I experienced the same outcome and the symptoms returned immediately after the medicine ran out.
So I thought it might be fungus also, so instead of using a fungus cream that I felt might be risky on the eye, he is using organic apple cider vinegar...the vinegar will kill bacteria and change the ph. It stung the first time but as it healed no longer stung. After the vinegar dried he puts organic coconut oil on it, since coconut oil has properties that kill bacteria also. We just started this a couple days and its working so far. I hope it goes away for good.
( When it does clear up a bit, I'm left with wrinkled skin on my eyes. I'm going to try the neem oil. I already use Nasonex for other allergies. Does anyone know if the wrinkled skin is a permanent side effect of the swelling? Okay...that's it...thanks! Hopefully we'll figure this out soon! I just want to be back to normal again!
I am also in a monogamous relationship so STD's are out of the question. I haven't called my doctor yet but I have been using hydrocortisone cream and it is a God send. It really helps me move on and be productive and sleep and such. Recent changes in my life: 2 weeks ago I started Wellbutrin, 6 weeks ago I got a hormonal IUD put in- I wonder if this is a side effect of either?
i went to the gyno for the first time a few weeks ago and she said it could be because im a little overweight and she suggested using a good anti-dandruff shampoo. i've been using baby powder and it hasn't really done much, so off to the shampoo! :P im definitely gonna try some of these other things too. thanks!!
I have to eat more salt because I have very low blood pressure. Well water could be another reason as it can contain iron. By using a water softener which used salt to soften the water could help. I think your answer could very well be in your water even if you don't have a well. Buy a kit at the store to test your water. Your pipes could be a problem too if you don't have a well. Anyway I hope you get your answer.
it lightens and just plains ruins it! I do usually rinse hair w/ apple cider vinegar...works pretty good and smell fades quickly. Baths I soak more in, I usually add seasalt,borax,peroxide,baking soda,bleach,you name it and I have tried it! seasalt and baking soda do work! I got a tip to try 2 soak in laundry soap(Arm&Hammer) does work to get these things under control...for most part! In laundry, bleach/borax/ammonia works the best!
I found that using Head and Shoulders anti dandruff shampoo worked for my girls. Only use once a week on young children, it seems to stop any nits being able to stick to the hair. Follow all the other advice over washing brushes combs bedding etc. I found buying cheep pillows was a better answer than trying to launder them, and whenever I discovered lice the pillow went in the bin.
i dont have pain either but there is a spreading of micro sized bumps making a scaly feel and there has been dryness but i've been using carmex so the dryness hasnt been too bad. hopefully that wont exacerbate the problem. but it still is uncomfortable feeling. i have been staying up late lately so my immune system has probably been slightly more susceptible. i have also had mild skin issues in the past. they used to tell me i had ringworm and then changed it to a mild form of eczema.
Now, I have also been having a bad time with a really itchy/sore scalp, and during this last week, I have decided to give up on the SLS infested shampoo and go without (using apple cider vinegar to rinse the scalp). Guess what, the itching and dandruff has almost cleared up after only a week without smearing my scalp in SLS.
Sometimes on my back... always had many pimples on my back... tried so many things... using clean towels, clean bed sheets, wearing 2 shirts a day, Differin prescription acne cream, Proactiv. For everything I have tried, I have never been able to accomplish my goal of no acne, the closest thing was a rigorous Proactive regime, which I used twice a day on my back. Now here I am 1 month after... and I'm absolutely blown away by the results. And NO MORE OILY SKIN!!!!
I now use a handful or two of organic apple cider vinegar to wipe my legs with when I occasionnally get itchy legs, and stroke them gently. It takes about 15 mins approx to pass and I can't have anyone near me as I need space to try to help myself relax, including deep slow breathing. I can usually can pin the itching down to sweat, humidity, wearing clothes that aren't cotton on my legs or showering without a filter. I don't use soap on my legs.
