Full Answer

Apple cider vinegar applied to the scalp alters the pH level. By altering the pH level in this manner, the environment becomes unfavorable to the growth of yeast. The net result is the elimination of dandruff that is caused by yeast. The appropriate preparation is to blend a quarter cup of apple cider vinegar with a quarter cup of water. The mixture is then sprayed onto the scalp and allowed to remain for 15 minutes to 1 hour.
