A clean scalp will itch less, and the vinegar will help to prevent dandruff as well. This herbal rinse will also help to counter~act the acids in alkaline shampoos.
This rinse can also be effective at killing ‘bottle bacillus’ a microorganism that is common in scalp conditions like dandruff. Itchy scalp and dandruff are often caused by bacteria that clog hair follicles, forming dry crusts that itch and flake. The acids and enzymes in apple cider vinegar kill the offending bacteria. Some dandruff can be caused by fungus, and apple cider vinegar will kill that too!
