Natural care for dandruff with no chemicals.

Updated on October 11, 2013

Daily care!

No beauty parlors

Are you one of those persons who visit beauty parlors for treating dandruff? Actually beauty parlors thrive on such naïve persons who do not mind shelling out money for something they can treat at home itself and at half the cost. When you have dandruff there is no permanent solution,as the problem comes back if you stop treating it. With persistent care, you can keep your dandruff problem at bay.

The top most priority for removing dandruff is to keep your scalp clean. You travel a lot to your work place and due to the existing pollution dirt settles on your scalp and when you do not have time to wash your hair, the dirt coats your scalp and forms dandruff. It makes your hair roots weak and you experience heavy hair loss. You rush to the parlors in hope of stopping your hair fall and they use chemicals to treat danduff which will prove harmful to your hair in the long run. If you have the mindset, you can treat dandruff with the things you have at home.

Regular care can do wonders to your dandruff and you can minimize your hair loss also. The ingredients needed is available at your home itself and they provide you with absolute non chemical treatment with no harmful side effects. Hair packs are very good for your dandruff and you should use it at least once a week.

Fenugreek is the wonder element for dandruff. They not only remove your dandruff, they make your hair soft and silky. Soak two tablespoon of fenugreek overnight and make a smooth paste. Add sour curd to it and blend well. Apply the mixture to every strand of your hair and allow it to work for twenty minutes. Wash thoroughly with warm water.

Beat the white of two eggs and add sour curd to it.Mix well and apply on your scalp and wash after half an hour.

Take the juice of two lime and add decoction of tea to it .Mix well and apply on your scalp to remove your dandruff.

There is one treatment my mother-in-law used to do and though I found it odd, it did remove dandruff. You too can try it out. Heat two tablespoon of gingerly oil, add ten peppers to it, and add three buds of garlic and one dried chilly to it. Sounds different, isn’t it! Keep the flame in the low and allow pepper, garlic and chili to splutter. Remove from fire and apply on the scalp. Wash after twenty minutes. You might feel a burning sensation for a while, but it does work.

Add the juice of Indian gooseberry, one lime and the white of two eggs and apply on scalp and wash after twenty minutes.

Whatever packs you might apply; it is no use if you do not follow a daily cleaning schedule as if you do not do it, the result will not be according to your expectation. With the pollution and dust settling in your hair, you need to wash it daily to remove the dirt before it forms a layer in your scalp.

Massaging your hair with herbal oil also helps in removing dandruff. You can do the massage yourself. Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to plain coconut oil and blend well. Apply the oil in your scalp and massage with your finger tips. Your scalp should tingle as you massage and you will feel blood flowing to your scalp. Wash with a mild shampoo and rinse thoroughly. .

If you have the patience and will, you can treat dandruff at home and save a lot of money. The parlors do the same thing and fleece you .The ingredients needed also is very cheap and available at home. Do not believe if the parlors promise the sky, as dandruff needs persistent care and only then can you see the results.

      Thank you Rajan, garlic does emanate much smell when it is cooked in oil. It is the raw garlic which has rather a nasty smell.

      Good tips except for the one involving garlic! It is a good treatment perhaps to keep dandruff as well as everyone away from you!

      Great tips, Mathira. I can vouch for massaging oil and also using a few drops of Tea Tree oil. Very effective.
