The beautiful Mother Nature has been bestowing us with simple yet effective natural solutions to countless ailments since the beginning of time. One of these gifts from nature that has been proven to treat and remedy skin and hair problems can be found at the comfort of your kitchen. Say hello to the good old Apple Cider Vinegar.
Apple Cider Vinegar (or ACV) works wonders in treating dandruff. It has antiseptic and antibacterial properties that gently remove those flaky dead skin cells and hair product residues on the scalp, hair strand and hair follicles caused by a bacteria called “bottle bacillus.” Most commercially produced shampoos and conditioners have silica and polymer – ingredients that aggravates the bottle bacillus bacteria on the scalp resulting to hair follicles getting clogged. Clogged hair follicles produces small bumps on the scalp coated with crusty particles that are itchy and are sometimes accompanied with inflammation. Applying ACV all over the hair and scalp will solve this problem when done right.

The disadvantage is the way they coat the scalp and hair with impurities which results many different kinds of irritations like dandruff and head pimples or acne.
There are shampoos and conditioners that contain SLS or SLES (sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium lauryl ether sulfate) and ALS or ALES (ammonium lauryl sulfate and ammonium lauryl ether sulfate).
