Both white vinegar and apple cider vinegar have amazing healing properties, without the chemicals found in a lot of store bought items. And even better? It’s cheap and easily accessible; that’s if you don’t already have a bottle in your kitchen! Using it safely (that is, always diluted with water) vinegar has properties that kill bacteria, kill fungus, can ease dandruff or an itchy scalp, serve as a rinse for oily hair, aid in acne breakouts, and even relieve a sunburn: All according to 1,0801 Home Remedies which also states that “Apple Cider Vinegar is often favored”. ACV (apple cider vinegar for short) has a slightly less abrasive scent and has been vastly researched for it’s healing properties. It’s easy to see with just a little bit of research why this vinegar made from fermented apples is so popular in the natural beauty world!


One way you can add apple cider vinegar into your wellness routine is by using it in your hair. Because it lowers PH levels and is antimicrobial, it can be used as a preventative measure on your hair and scalp, to help if you have dandruff, or have frizzy and dull hair.

Mix a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with water and pour it over your scalp and hair from root to tip evenly, after washing and conditioning your hair. Then you just let the solution sit for a few minutes and rinse it out!
