For instance, dandruff is a problem many people are afflicted with and using apple cider vinegar can effectively help combat and eliminate this pestering problem.

Shinier Hair- When using ACV on hair, you'll likely see how your hair is shinier and has an overall healthier appearance. No more drab or dull looking hair! A great side effect is it is also effective to eliminate any build up that ordinary shampoos and conditioners cause which is a significant culprit to hair looking on the lackluster side.


  1. Hi D, I have a black color rinse in my hair will ACV strip the color at all?

  2. Hi! I believe it will, especially because it's semi-permanent. I also get a black rinse, but it usually washes out when I'm 3 weeks post relaxer whether I do an ACV rinse or not. Let me research this a little more and get back to you though.
