I started reading this post about a month ago. I read about apple cider vinegar for hair loss.

I have been suffering hair loss for the last year and a half. I am in my mid thirties and always had long, thick hair.

I noticed over a year or so ago, in certain light, my scalp was obvious around the top of my head (by the way I'm female).

I believe, all hair loss is bad, but I think for women it's much worse, mentally. It's not quite as acceptable to shave your head!

I am already a major stresshead and this made me stress even more. I even stopped going out with friends.

I tried many natural hair loss products with no luck and eventually starting using minoxidil (which I ordered online because I was too embarrased to purchase from the chemist).

Minoxidil did grow back some hairs but after 5 months, I began suffering major irritation.
My head wouldn't stop itching and was flaky and developing sores.(I had never had any problems with itchy, dandruff head etc before.)

Anyway, getting to my point.
After reading here about ACV, I decided to give it a try. I have been, and would try anything to grow my hair back. (I haven't used minoxidol in over a month).

It has only been 2 and a half weeks and after drinking ACV every day, 3 times a day, I now have new hairs sprouting in my balding patches.

I am not paid to recommend this, but I am taking B____s ACV as I believe it's the purest (available from most health stores).

I recommend drinking ACV to anyone suffering hair loss! I also have been putting the rinse through my hair twice a week. It does smell a bit, but the difference is amazing, so much smoother.

I took some before photos tonight. I have a crappy camera, and they are slightly blurry, but I hope to be sending before/after pictures soon, with all my new hair!!!

I am 32 years old and from India and had a very thick hair before i came to US 3 years back. Eversince i have come here i started having terrible hair loss. I never had any ailment, stress etc. I have seen many of my male friends going nearly bald here. Is it in the water that we drink or shower. The right side of my scalp got more affected. Cutting the story short, i have started taking ACV for about a month now, 2 tablespoons in a glass of water taken twice a day. I also use diluted ACV as a final rinse when i wash my hair every weekend. I can say this - my hair has started looking much healthier. I cannot say if it has reduced my hair loss, i hope it does. I also started taking cold shower wash instead of hot water.
