The ads for anti-dandruff shampoo show dandruff as a cause of embarrassment. Even though I’ve never had dandruff, I am sure that it doesn’t look good and obviously it is not good for hair-health. It is bad even for skin as it can lead to acne.
I’m not going into the nitty-gritty of it but just suggesting you some home remedies that you can try to get rid of dandruff.
Aloe Vera Gel for Dandruff
Take some aloe vera gel and apply it on your scalp. Let it stay for around 30 minutes. Then wash your hair with a mild shampoo. Aloe Vera has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which help in keeping dandruff at bay. It is great if you can do this daily.
Vinegar for dandruff
This remedy is for the ones who don’t have sensitive noses. We all know the benefits of vinegar in keeping our hair shiny. Vinegar is also very helpful in treating dandruff. Mix water and vinegar in equal ratios. Apply it on your scalp and cover your head. Leave it overnight. Next morning wash your hair well with a mild shampoo.
If you are not comfortable with leaving vinegar on your head, just massage it on your scalp for 5 minutes and wash off.
Beetroot for dandruff
This overnight treatment is very effective in removing dandruff. Take pieces of beetroot and ginger in equal quantities and blend them in a food processor. Massage this on your scalp at night and shampoo in the morning.
Eggs for dandruff
When it comes to healthy hair, eggs are always ready to help. Beat 2 eggs and apply them on your head. Shampoo your hair after an hour. Eggs work pretty fast in dandruff removal and also condition your hair in the process.
Tulsi and Amla for dandruff
Holy basil and Indian gooseberries are good anti-dandruff herbs. Make paste of some tulsi leaves. Add in some amla powder to make a paste. Slather this on scalp and leave on for 30 minutes. Use a mild shampoo afterwards.
These remedies are natural and so do no harm to hair. If you try any of these, you will soon get a dandruff-free scalp.
