Apple Cider Hair Rinse for Dry, Itchy Scalp

I’ve mentioned before that I really struggle with dry, itchy scalp during the winter months.

One of my favorite ways to combat those annoying winter scalp and hair problems is this Green Tea Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse.

I use this Green Tea Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse once or twice a week in the shower.

It really helps when I want to refresh my hair and scalp after the toll that dry, cold hair and holiday styling has taken on it.

Rinsing with this Green Tea Apple Cider Vinegar Hair rinse always leaves my hair and scalp feeling so much better.

Don’t worry, once your hair dries you don’t notice a vinegar-y smell.

Benefits of Green Tea 

Green Tea is a fantastic antioxidant and natural antiseptic. It can help restore balance and soothe irritated skin.  

Green tea can also help stimulate hair growth, reduce shedding, and calm dandruff and psoriasis.

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar 

Apple cider vinegar aids in supporting healthy skin and hair.

Used topically on the scalp, it exfoliates dull, dry skin,  adds body to your hair and makes it nice and shiny. 

It also restores the pH bal­ance of the scalp and dis­cour­ages over­growth of malassezia fur­fur, the yeast-like fun­gus thought to trig­ger dandruff.

Make sure you purchase a high quality apple cider vinegar.

I like this apple cider vinegar from Bragg Live Foods best.

It is available at most grocery stores, but you can also order online.

Benefits of Rosemary Essential Oil 

Rosemary can stimulate hair growth and slow shedding, helps with dandruff, and gives hair body.

Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil  

Lavender stimulates hair growth and calms dry, itchy scalp. It also has a relaxing scent!

In addition using this Green Tea Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse once or twice a week, make sure to eat a balanced diet.

Include plenty of healthy fats, protein and leafy greens (like these Kale Chips) and keep hydrated for optimal hair growth and scalp health.

I don’t have any apple cider vinegar, but could you use other types of vinegar? Like white vinegar for example?

I have been struggling with hair shedding and hair loss for a couple months now and was curious if this would be helpful for that?

I found it to be helpful. I was really struggling with that myself a few years ago when I first posted the recipe instructions. You might also like to try this: http://www.goodlifeeats.com/diy-rosemary-hot-oil-hair-treatment/

Do you store the leftovers in the refrigerator?  I did not, and there appeared to be mold growing in the jar.  Is there a way to avoid this in the future?

Katie

I did not store mine in the refrigerator, but it would be fine to do that. I haven't had issues with mold.
