Has anyone used apple cider vinegar to treat hairloss?

. I have been told apple cider vinegar reduces hairfall. Does it work?. I have tried it twice on my hair and the hair loss is still there. Need to know if it works. Thanks.

No, but I've used it to remove a mole and it worked.
I don't know anything that reduces hair fall, sorry.

I know someone who swears by biotin and chromium supps taken together once a day to recover from hairloss. But obviously the most important thing to do is find out the cause and treat that!

How did you use it to remove a mole WowOoo?

Sorry to hijack.

JoanGalt -
Apply it to the mole. Cover with a small piece of cider vinegar cotton wool and plaster. Did this a few times daily. It drooped, scabbed up and dropped off. Painful and ugly while it was scabbed and healing. But all I have now is a small scar..smaller than the mole.
Dermatologists do not recommend, please note.

Faith in Nature Organic shampoo and conditioner have helped my hair loss. Still thinning, but not so much.

I am really surprised at how vinegar could remove a mole, does apple cider vinegar have different properties to other types of vinegar.

Krill oil supplements thickened my hair up. That's not the reason that I initially took them (I was trying to reduce the clickiness of my joints) it was just a nice additional benefit as I have quite thin hair.

It is surely to do with your ability to manage vitamin and minerals. You may have higher needs than the average person.
