Supplements: Hair: Is Apple Cider Vinegar Safe for Your Hair? | Dr. Berg: YouTube

In this video, I’m going to answer another question about Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). Is it safe to use on your hair?

In other videos, I’ve talked about different apple cider vinegar uses and apple cider benefits when you take it internally. It can help with so many different things, such as digestion and blood sugars. But, you can also use apple cider vinegar (ACV) topically for your skin. This includes your scalp. The acid in ACV is beneficial to your scalp, and when you take care of your scalp—your hair will reap some of the benefits.

I don’t know why hair hacks with apple cider vinegar aren’t mentioned more as hair care tips. Apple cider vinegar is one of those natural hair hacks that can work wonders. I think if you start including ACV in your hair care routine, you will really start to notice a huge change in the quality of your hair. Even better, it’s natural hair care. You won’t have to worry about unnecessary chemicals that are in some other hair care products.

Using apple cider vinegar for hair could help you achieve the same benefits as some hair care products in a much more natural way.

Apple cider vinegar benefits for your hair:

  1. Helps restore the pH of the scalp.
  2. Gives hair a nice shine.
  3. Cleans up residues from shampoos and conditions

How to use ACV for hair:


  • Don’t apply apple cider vinegar directly to your scalp in the concentration that it comes in. That can damage the hair. You have to dilute it with water before using.
  • Don’t let it sit in your hair for a long period of time. You really just want to use it as an ACV rinse.
  • Don’t use every day.


  • Mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 16 ounces of water.
  • Use this mixture as an ACV rinse after shampoo and conditioner (if that’s what you use)
  • Only apply the mixture 1-2 times per week.
