Apple Cider Vinegar cured severe dandruff. I have had a case of dandruff that just kept getting worse over the last few years - I figured it must have been caused by an alergic reaction to hair dye over time. Even though I stopped dying my hair 2 years back, the dandruff never stopped. I tried all dandruff shampoos (which made the condition worse and gave me huge red lesions all along my hairline and forehead) then switched to natural shampoos only - which stopped it from getting worse, but not any better. I then finally tried the ACV on my scalp, left it on for about 15 minutes, then washed my hair with a frangrance free natural shampoo ( I added a few drops of tea tree into it) and rinsed with a 50/50 solution of ACV and water. I have been doing this for 2 weeks and everything has just about cleared up, apart from some tiny flakes here and there - no itching at all! Every wash it keeps getting better - and my hair is shinier! Yay!

To Teekup 11/14/07 from Metrowest, Ma. Half & half ACV/water is best hair conditioner you can use - leaves hair silky soft & shiny & dandruff free ( I think it works by acid vinegar taking alkali shampoo off hair) but best of all it leaves the hair in place (unlike H & S dandruff shampoo Or any other dandruff shampoo with same active ingredients) every time I see someone that looks too young to be losing hair naturally I always ask them if they are using head and shoulders shampoo- a few of them had already figured out what was causing their hair loss and stopped - It works real good for controling dandruff, but then I don't think I've ever seen a bald person with dandruff

I struggled with dandruff and related skin problems all my life. They were present on my scalp, face, ears, nostrils, chest, and pubic area. I was constantly using different medications. Doctors were prescribing me corticosteroids, even in injections. During the nineties I started realizing that all my skin problems were fungus related. Nizoral shampoo was helping to some extend, but not all the way, and I was becoming more and more allergic to it. Other dandruff shampoos never worked at all. I tried many herbal remedies, with very mixed effects. Finally, a couple of years ago, I found information about using vinegar to treat dandruff. It took a couple of weeks, and some adjusting, but finally my skin started clearing up. I finally use it 3 times a week 5 min before shower (you can spray it, use an eye dropper, and your hand to massage it in). Careful with eyes, teeth, and lungs! Ever since I've been dandruff/exema free. Vinegar is my best friend! At the beginning I was using Apple Cider Vinegar, but my partner couldn't stand the smell of it. He advised me to switch to white sugar cane vinegar, popular in Mexico, where we live - it works as well as ACV for me. Take care everyone!
