The Best Natural Remedy for Dandruffs and Split-ends
There are a number of natural home remedies that helps cure dandruffs and split-ends. Learn how to shake the flake the most inexpensive way with this best natural remedy.
Treating Dandruffs and Split-ends the Most Inexpensive Way
There are two types of dandruff: OILY and DRY. The Oily type can make your hair sticky and might have yellow flakes while the Dry type can be seen with white flakes and with itching effects on scalp.
Worst-case scenario, dandruffs can really make your hair smells bad. Adults and adolescents alike are the most common affected by this rather than children.
Dandruffs can be the most annoying and embarrassing hair enemy one can have.
This is the shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp; commonly seen as white flakes and very itchy. With dandruffs, the hair loses its beauty and might even spoil your personality.
Why Dandruff Formed?
These are some of the possible reasons that contribute as to why our scalp become prone to dandruffs:
- Too much secretion of skin oil or sebum
- By-products of skin microorganisms
- Excessive stress
- Poor diet
- Hormonal imbalances
- Dry weather
- Excessive use of hair products not suitable for our scalp and hair
- Infected scalp
THE BEST NATURAL HOME REMEDY TREATMENT
Some would say it’s best to put vinegar on your scalp. But I think vinegar is too much for a sensitive scalp and hair to handle. It contains harsh chemicals that could damage the health of our hair. What I've known as the best remedy is pure Calamansi juice.
It was then that a friend needed help to treat these dandruffs on her scalp.
She tried using anti-dandruff shampoos but to no avail. It just makes it worst. She said she was really embarrassed whenever she looked into the mirror and see those small white flakes.
She can't even brush her hair in public or near anyone because of the fear that they will see it. It's not really very visible, but the thought that you knew it was there can make your cringe every time you touch your hair.
I never researched though; I never knew at first that Calamansi would be an effective way to get rid of dandruffs since I never had dandruffs before.
I think this is due to the dry weather outside since she's mostly out of the house.
Calamansi Beauty Miracles
Not only Calamansi is a good cleaning agent and the best addition to sauce, it has the potential to enhance one's beauty.
From eliminating dark spots and scars on our face and body, using it as a deodorizer to combat smelly underarms plus its whitening effects, Calamansi juice is proven to be an effective way to get rid of dandruffs.
The fact that Calamansi has citric acid might lessen the itchiness and might get rid of these flakes on the scalp.
Say Goodbye to Dandruffs and Split-Ends - the Very Natural Way!
Not only that Calamansi can get rid of dandruffs, it can also stop split-ends from your hair. If you are suffering from split-ends, you can try to wash the ends of your hair with Calamansi juice. I've tried this before and it can stop split-ends naturally. It may not close those strands that already split, but it can prevent other healthy hair to break and split in the end.
These are the steps she had done to combat those white flakes:
- Cut the Calamansi in halves
Option 1: You can gently put the Calamansi directly into your hair while squeezing it or
Option 2: You can squeeze the juice first, separate the pulp from the juice and then put it on your scalp
I always choose option 2 since you can avoid the pulp getting into your hair and scalp. The pulp is hard to remove once it sticks on the scalp and hair even when you tried to rinse it with water.
- Let the Calamansi juice stand on your scalp for about 15 - 20 minutes before rinsing it off.
- Rinse with tap water and use only mild shampoo to wash away the smell.
- Use it 2 - 3 days straight for mild dandruff conditions and 3 - 5 days for severe dandruffs. After that, use it only thrice a week. Then reduce it to twice a week application until you feel that it's all gone (even you can't see the white flakes anymore).
On my experience (helping her get rid of those unwanted flakes), since it was only a very mild case, she used it for two straight days.
After a week, she applied it only once (preferably Saturday) and I was really amazed after 3 applications that all those small flakes are already gone.
Calamansi does not only get rid of dandruffs but it also makes your hairy shiny and soft. She never had dandruffs again. It was already gone - for good!
I never hesitate to recommend Calamansi to get rid of those white flake enemies. It really works in no time. Salons nowadays are charging a big amount for a one-time application of chemicals to fight dandruffs. Even anti-dandruff shampoos that promises "100% dandruff-free" hair is not really effective. It can also make your hair dull because of its harsh content.
But why pay high when you can pay a reasonable amount to buy Calamansi?
Why take the risk to let chemicals damaged your sensitive scalp and hair when you can opt for more natural and more effective way to treat it?
She's really happy of the result - a dandruff free and healthy scalp and hair.
