Hair grows best when it's healthy and well-maintained. While vinegar itself won't prevent hair loss, it will help you grow healthy locks, which are the best prevention against losing your hair.
Vinegar will remove build-up from your hair. Build-up occurs when hair care products remain in your hair and on your scalp. Combine 1/2 cup of warm water with 1/2 cup of white vinegar and rinse your hair. You can also add essential oils to make the rinse scented. Use the vinegar rinse after shampooing. You can either leave the vinegar-water rinse on your hair, or rinse it out using water.
How it Works
Vinegar helps to restore hair health, which will make it grow at a healthier, quicker rate. Vinegar also cleanses the hair, causing the cuticle to lay flat, which causes shine and prevents breakage. According to Chagrin Valley Soap & Craft Company, "vinegar has a tonic action that promotes blood circulation in the small capillaries that irrigate the skin." This may help promote hair growth.
Types of Vinegar
While white vinegar will work just fine, apple cider vinegar is said to be the best type to use on hair, according to Chagrin Valley Soap and Craft.
