The health benefits that natural unfiltered apple cider vinegar brings are known for centuries.

This vinegar is especially helpful as a treatment for improvement of hair quality, its shine and against hair loss.

Wash The Hair With Apple Cider Vinegar

Regular hair washing with apple cider vinegar removes all the chemicals that build up in the hair because of the various hair products we use on a daily basis.

At the same time the vinegar restores the natural pH balance in the hair and helps it growth and improves the health of the scalp.

Furthermore, apple cider vinegar also improves the blood flow in the small blood vessels located under the skin on the head.

At the same time it eliminates the bacteria that cause infections on the scalp and hair resulting in dandruff.

ACV is also good to get rid of acid reflux.
