How to treat dandruff

How to treat dandruffDandruff is the accumulation of dead skin cells on the scalp, which form scaly flakes on the head. Homemade recipes are best to treat dandruff.
Dandruff is the accumulation of dead skin cells on the scalp, which, if not removed, form scaly flakes on the head. Normally, dead skin cells are replaced once a month. But with people with dandruff, the process takes about one or two weeks.
To take care of dandruff, here are some recipes:

1. Dry thyme 3 table spoon
Dry rosemary 2 tablespoon
Apple cider vinegar 1 cup
Distilled water 1 1/2 cups
Boil water. Put the herbs in it. Remove from heat. Steep for 1/2 hour. Strain into a bottle. Pour vinegar in it. Shake well. Gently massage a small amount into the scalp after shampooing and rinsing properly. Do not wash hair after application. Towel dry hair.
A regular application with 2-3 days interval can help eliminate dandruff and stimulate hair growth.

2. Coconut oil 2 tablespoon
Ginger root (grated) 1 tablespoon
Lemon juice 5 tablespoon
Gently massage scalp with coconut oil in circular motion. Mix grated ginger roots with lemon juice. Apply all over scalp. Leave on for 30-40 minutes before shampooing. Repeat every 3-4 days.
This is a great scalp tonic for dandruff. It moisturizes dry scalp and conditions hair while lemon juice cleanses scalp of flakes.

3. Castor oil 2 tablespoon
Almond oil 2 tablespoon
Mix the oils. Warm them. Gently massage scalp with the mixture at bedtime. Leave it on for the night. (Cover the pillow with a towel to prevent staining.) Shampoo it off the next day.
This is excellent to promote hair growth. Massage of oils help loosen dandruff to speed up it's removal.

4. Eggs 2
Amla fruits 4-5
Kesuth (or ashwagandha) leaves 2 oz
Distilled water 2 cups
Boil amla in water for 10-15 minutes. Strain and store the water in a bowl. Crush kesuth or ashwagandha leaves to make a paste with little bit of water. Add it in the bowl. Beat eggs separately. Add to the mixture. Mix well. Apply this hair pack to the head thoroughly. Leave on for 20 minutes. Wash with cold water.
This not only treats dandruff but also strengthens roots of hairs and promotes hair growth.

5. White vinegar 1 cup
Distilled water 1 cup
Mix the ingredients well. Apply to scalp after shampooing and washing. Do not rinse after application. Let hair air dry or towel dry hair.
Apply once or twice a week to get rid of dandruff.

6. Fenugreek (methi) seeds 3 tablespoon
Distilled water 1 cup
Soak fenugreek seeds overnight. Grind them in the morning to make a fine paste. Apply the paste all over scalp. Leave on for 30 minutes. Wash off and shampoo. Apply twice a week.
This prevents dandruff and falling hair while promoting hair growth.

7. Amla fruits 4-5
Shikakai pods 3
Reetha fruits 4-5
Distilled water 5 cups
Boil all the ingredients in water over slow heat for 15-20 minutes. Strain the water in a bowl. Shampoo hair with it twice a week.

8. Witch hazel 2 oz

Tea tree oil 3 drops

This is an excellent scalp conditioner. The vitamins E and F in almond oil are great for soothing dry, itchy scalp. Olive oil is a superb conditioner.

10. Lavender oil 2 drops
Rosemary oil 2 drops
Thyme oil 2 drops
jojoba oil 3 drops
Mix the oils thoroughly. Massage the scalp at bedtime with the mixture. Cover head with a cloth overnight. Shampoo in the morning.

13. Coconut oil 3 tablespoon
Lemon juice 5 tablespoon
Warm oil. Massage gently all over the scalp. Steam hair. Wrap a towel over the head for better penetration of the oil. Leave on for 1 hour. Apply lemon juice. Shampoo after 15 minutes.

14. Dry rosemary 1 oz
Dry sage 1 oz
Distilled water 2 cups
Boil water. Pour rosemary and sage in it. Steep for 2 hours. Strain. Apply to damp (not wet) hair after shampooing. Leave on for 5 minutes.
