    I tried using apple cider vinegar on my hair for about 6 months last year as it helped my scalp (I suffer a bit from seborrheic dermatitis - dry and oily skin).

    I thought by reducing my seborrheic dermatitis I might be able to regrow some hair I lost. It didn't regrow any hair and only marginally made my scalp better. I didn't experience any more shedding than normal while using it. I'd say its worth trying though - its natural and cheap and it might work better for you than it did for me. If you're going to try it make sure you get the organic stuff with "the mother". I diluted it too. I'm back to using nizoral shampoo to control my seborrheic dermatitis, which seems to be a bit more effective than apple cider vinegar. I guess neither of these options are the silver bullet for my scalp, but they help.

    Nautral solutions always interest me. I recently watched a documentary called "Knives over forks" (only released last year) and was amazed how they were able to turn cancer growth on and off through diet... I think i might give the plant based diet a shot for my health, even though its probably not best for my hair. I'm confident there will be a solution for hair loss within the next 5 years.

    Anway, good luck with it

    Default Apple cider vinegar really is great

    I think apple cider vinegar is worth a try. It is truly miracolous. I have used it on everything from acne to tummy aches and it has always worked. I have not used it on hair so I will do more research on that. Thanks

    Try drinking it a couple times a day as well.. it might even work better from the inside. On and off I used it both topically and orally, and have bought a couple more bottles today to start again.. I buy those with added extracts.. nettle, garlic etc, so these should be even more potent for fighting hair loss.

    I'm thinking about using apple cider vinegar in conjunction with Minoxidil...

    I've heard apple cider vinegar reduces the sebum, which can act as a waxy type substance to prevent the Minoxidil from being properly absorbed by the hair follicles.... So maybe if the ACV is applied an hour before hand then the minoxidil it might work better? what do you guys think?

    Good luck with it, I was considering including minoxidil but have given up on it. ACV might indeed work by reducing inflamation & sebum and stimulating local circulation.. and interesting fact is that a very high percentage rate of balding people have inflamatory condition within their hair folicles.

    PS. Be careful if You combine these two, to a degree if You use ACD undilluted, it can cause scalp redness.

    Be careful if you choose to drink it- it's extremely acidic and can cause problems.
