Natural Itchy & Smelly Scalp Remedy: Apple Cider Vinegar

Organic apple cider vinegar is considered a food and is consumable by humans. Thus, it's safe to say that apple cider vinegar is non-toxic.

Apple cider vinegar possesses deodorizing and disinfecting properties.

An itchy & smelly/stinky scalp is usually caused by a build-up of bacteria and/or fungus on the scalp. Applying apple cider vinegar onto your scalp can eliminate those nasty odor-causing bacteria and the fungus that causes itching.

In addition to it's deodorizing and disinfecting properties, apple cider vinegar is very acidic thus having a lower ph balance.

Dandruff and oily or greasy hair is sometimes caused by a ph imbalance of the scalp. Apple cider vinegar can assist in restoring the ph balance of your hair and scalp. Using it will also remove build-up and residue left on your hair from shampoos, conditioners, and other hair styling agents.
