What is dandruff? Have you ever had dandruff? Once upon a time, I had mild dandruff – these small white flakes which produce my scalp itching and fall on my shoulders or collar once I scraped my scalp, flicked, combed or brushed my hair. Dandruff was unsightly (particularly when I wore black shirts or blouses) and it really bothered me.
Dandruff needs to be treated. When left untreated, it may result in scalp problems, hair loss, an acne condition becoming worse and pimples – all of this will send your self-esteem down the drain and if the illness becomes really bad, it can be depressing.
For those who have dandruff, you will need to get treatment. Otherwise, it may get acute and become a chronic condition of your scalp. Obviously, a scalp with especially severe dandruff does get in the way of healthy hair growth at its naturally quickest speed. Then, sharing the identical comb, hair brush, towel or any other personal items may also spread dandruff.
There are a number of ways to eliminate dandruff – organic and ‘unnatural’. First, it’s advisable to see a physician, at least for an initial consultation. Additionally, there are many hair products on the market to minimize dandruff.
I would love to talk about these natural ways I ‘tested’ to help me get rid of dandruff daily. I am not certain of your preferences, preferences or in case you have any ingredient you’re allergic to but here are various organic ingredients which you can do ‘test runs’ on and I hope you find something that helps. These are also practical ways that I believe can fit into your programs.
On the flip side, if you so decide to go for treated or chemical treatment, or use hair care products that help eliminate or minimize dandruff – that is completely up to you. Most of all, monitor your hair and scalp – see how your hair and scalp react to the treatment or procedure you chose.
Before you shower, massage a few fresh lemon juice on your scalp (not your own hair). Leave this on for 15-20 minutes. Then wash and rinse as normal with mild shampoo. To begin with, try 1 tbsp of lemon juice, once per day on alternate days.
Lemon Juice with Coconut Oil
Or Virgin Coconut Oil. Mix 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice with 1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil (you can use coconut oil also ). Massage on your scalp and leave on for around 20 minutes. Then wash and rinse as usual with great, mild shampoo. Start this recipe once a day on alternate days.
First, wash your hair with shampoo. Then dab dry your hair with a towel. Massage 1 tbsp of coconut oil to your scalp. If you have dry hair, you can apply a bit on the ends of your hair. Then wash and rinse well. Start with alternative days, 3 times a week before your dandruff is cleared.
Tea tree oil
Since tea tree oil has antiseptic, anti-inflammation and antibiotic qualities, it is now a powerful natural potion to eliminate dandruff. Just massage tablespoon of tea tree oil to your scalp. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. Then, rinse and wash your hair as usual.
You may also combine this oil with your normal shampoo and wash as normal – if your hair feels moist, skip the conditioner.
Olive oil was used for a while to help relieve skin issues. Therefore, it’s also utilized to eliminate dandruff. For this, you might begin by using 1-2 tablespoons once a day, every day. Before you sleep, warm this oil. Then massage this oil on your scalp. Leave this on overnight. Wash your hair thoroughly the next day when you awaken. In actuality, you can do this exact same routine with virgin coconut oil.
Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar
First, wash your hair. Then massage or rub some vinegar on your scalp. If your scalp feels a burning or stinging sensation, just rinse with water or try another’diluted’ recipe. Otherwise, leave vinegar for approximately 15 minutes and rinse well with water. Incidentally, the odor of vinegar will go away when your hair dries. You may start alternative days, once per day.
Diluted Apple Cider Vinegar
If the’concentrated’ vinegar recipe is too much to bear to your scalp, try this diluted apple cider vinegar potion. The’dimension’ is really up to how your scalp feels – but you can begin by mixing a mug of water with 1 tbsp of vinegar. After washing your hair, pour this on your hair gradually – you may use more if needed. Then, dry your hair. Start this once a day, every day.
Mashed Onions / Onion Paste
This one could be unbearable for some people but I am like this because I hear that it works. Seriously, this was a’tried and tested’ recipe with a couple of my relatives – but not me. I can’t take the smell too much.
All you’ve got to do is mix a few onions with a little water – make it into a paste which can be applied on to your scalp. Leave on for approximately half an hour. Then wash and rinse thoroughly. Apply a fresh lemon juice onto your scalp to eliminate the odor of onion (if it’s there). Well, if this potion is too powerful for you, try different potions.
Remember, there are always no hard and fast rules. These recipes give you a fairly good jump-start. Then, you want to fine tune these potions to fit your scalp and hair condition – I do exactly the exact same every time I explore ingredients to create recipes for my hair and scalp – and also the reason I give one-to-one email service to my clients to help their specific conditions.
If dandruff persists (despite having tried all ways), gets worse or you get sensitive or allergic reactions in your scalp, it’s time to repair an appointment with your physician. Depending upon your condition, your physician may then refer you to an expert.
