Not related: The apple cider vinegar on your hair is unrelated. Your period could be late for a number of reasons. I'd start with a pregnancy tes Good luck.t and go from there. Stress, medicines, changes in your diet,exercise level, or weight, and diseases such as diabetes or thyroid disease can all result in a late period. ...Read more

Can apple cider vinegar really fight hair loss?

Of course not: Apple cider vinegar is promoted for EVERYTHING. And with no side effects. It is extremely easy to make and sell; it's an interesting mix of substances but obviously it can't be all things to all sick people. It's probably harmless but you'd be foolish not to see through the chicanery. ...Read more

Oral meds: Once established in the roots of the hair, washes and topical lotions or creams are unlikely to cure this infection. Oral medication will get the anti-fungal treatment to the blood supply of the hair root and skin, and do the job.You need to see the doc to have this confirmed and learn about the meds that will be used. ...Read more

Apple cider: is not going to help baldness. Minoxidil, is hard to say; it is effective ONLY on some patterns of baldness and NOT on receeding hairline. AND irritated scalp is more likely to react to any drug put onto it. Furthermore, enough irritaiton can cause baldness (and responds to anti-inflammatories). I guess I am recommending a dermatologist. ...Read more
