In brief: Sure

If your kidney disease upsets your stomach, the vinegar may make it worse.
If you're expecting drinking the vinegar to help dry scalp, you're overly optimistic. Applying it topically might help -- your physician may have other suggestions. Apple cider vinegar is promoted as being good for everything, which itself should let you draw a reasonable conclusion. Still, it's interesting.

In brief: Questionable benefit

I am not certain that the vinegar will be of any benefit.
Your tolerance for the vinegar will depend on you renal clearance.
