Handy And Cheap Herbal Treatments For Dandruff

Dandruff is a nightmare to many of us but you don’t have to panic because it is only a common condition of the scalp, which is found in more than half of the world’s population, and it can be overcome with the help of natural, cheap and effective remedies!

Apple vinegar

Due to its acidity, apple vinegar is ideal to get rid of dandruff. Mix apple vinegar with water, wash the hair with your usual shampoo and rinse, then pour the mixture on your hair and scalp. Let it work for 10 minutes then rinse with warm water. Repeat the procedure for at least a week.

Lemon and yogurt

These two ingredients can definitively destroy dandruff. Make a mask of yogurt and lemon juice and apply it after you washed your hair. Add a few drops of almond oil and 3 teaspoons of honey to prevent the skin from drying out.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has antiseptic properties, balancing the level of sebum, and moisturizing, which prevents skin dryness. Apply directly to the affected area, leave about an hour to act, and then wash your hair with cold water without shampoo.

Sodium bicarbonate

Instead of shampooing, choose to massage the scalp moistened with a bicarbonate powder several times a week. Leave a minute to act and rinse with warm water. Don’t use shampoo after!

Essential oils

There are several essential oils with beneficial effects for hair care, but the most recognized is the tea tree, a natural antiseptic that quickly removes dandruff. You can buy shampoos that contain at least 5% essential oil. Another option may be the essential oil added to the usual shampoo (10 drops to 400 ml of shampoo).
