Apple Cider Vinegar for Hair Loss

Apple Cider Vinegar for Hair Loss

Hair Loss Home Remedy

Is apple cider vinegar the cure-all you've been looking for?

Once relegated to salad dressings, apple cider vinegar is now touted as a cure-all among some natural wellness gurus, claiming to cure everything from diabetes to high blood pressure to hair loss. We can’t speak on the former, but the latter we know a thing or two about. As far as we know, there is no scientific evidence that ACV can treat hair loss.

The theory behind using apple cider vinegar for hair loss is that it treats the condition in three ways: Eliminates scalp buildup, removes DHT and balances pH.

Proponents for ACV scalp rinses insist that it reduces buildup, and therefore frees up follicles to grow, grow, grow. While it is true that scalp pores clogged with oil, dead skin and hair products can inhibit growth, it’s rarely the main cause of hair loss. Research shows that the cause of baldness is genetics 98% of the time.

However, with Revivogen Bio-Cleansing Shampoo, you get the gentle deep clean but with the added benefit of hair treatment that literally plumps the follicle for a fuller look.

Best shampoo! This is all I use. Makes my hair look fuller. Smells great.

Apple Cider Vinegar to Remove DHT

Secondly, those who promote the idea of apple cider vinegar as a treatment for thinning hair say that it removes DHT, the hormone byproduct that triggers hair loss for those genetically predisposed to pattern baldness. DHT is found in sebum (skin’s natural oil), so their theory that by removing sebum, hair loss will stop. An apple cider vinegar rinse will surely wash off some sebum. However, oil glands are constantly producing sebum, so a one-time sebum cleanse is sub-par. Revivogen Scalp Therapy is a leave-on treatment that absorbs into the skin to block DHT. With most customers applying it before going to bed, Revivogen Scalp Therapy goes to work all night long at fighting the dreaded hormone that triggers shedding.

The final case made by Apple Cider Vinegar devotees is that it promotes pH balance. While an imbalance of acidity on the scalp could cause irritation, and that may contribute to hair loss, it is rarely the cause of hair loss. For those dealing with thinning hair, the cause is a combination of genetics and hormones 98% or more of the time.

With ingredients like Linolenic Acid and Oleic Acid, which have been shown in research to block DHT, Revivogen Scalp Therapy can slow hair shedding and increase growth. Ingredients like chamomile and aloe vera help soothe the scalp of irritation, creating a better environment for growth. A combination of Revivogen Scalp Therapy and Revivogen Bio-Cleansing Shampoo can result in the slowdown of thinning. Packed with clinically-researched ingredients, Revivogen is the safe and effective choice as compared to the anecdotal-only claims of apple cider vinegar. And the smell is much better!
