For all of you men (and women) out there wishing that you had the strong wavy locks of your youth back, it turns out that apple cider vinegar can help you out.

Scientists now believe that the excess build up of DHT around the root follicle is what causes the hair follicles to die off and becoming incapable of producing new hair growth. The DHT essentially builds up around the follicle like wax choking off the blood supply causing it shrink and eventually die off. Organic Apple Cider can actually help dissolve this extra DHT build up around the follicle and promote new hair growth. It acids and enzymes might also help kill off certain pathogens associated with excess DHT and hair loss due to Alopecia.
Along with helping to prevent hair loss, Apple Cider Vinegar also help balance the pH of your hair and scalp which also helps to prevent dandruff and leave your hair healthy and shiny looking. It will also kill off any other bacteria of fungal problems that might be going on up there.
You can find lots of natural shampoo and rinse products that utilize apple cider vinegar online or at your local health food store.

You can use a mixture of sweet orange, palmarosa and lavender. It will leave a nice scent on your hair and make it really soft. Use only a small amount, let it sit for a minute and then rinse it out. The bottle usually lasts about 5 days before you will need to fill it again.
