Dandruff is difficult to treat, but with the right home remedies, you can say goodbye to it forever. Find out more
If you are someone who suffers from dandruff and has tried browsing a number of websites to find the solution, you are not alone. Dandruff is a scalp condition that affects millions of people. With the right home remedies and beauty routines, you can get rid of them from the comfort of your own home. While it just sounds like a scalp condition, severe dandruff can affect people’s self-esteem, which is why it’s important to treat it right at the beginning and not let it get worse over a period of time.
1. Tea tree oil:
This is the holy grail of beauty products. If you haven’t already invested in a bottle of tea tree oil, now is the time to do so. Tea tree oil has been used in traditional medicines, and its history is enough to prove that it actually works. It has healing properties that address fungal infections and skin problems, which makes it a perfect ingredient for dandruff. As an added bonus, you can use tea tree oil in your closet to prevent acne. So this is a win-win situation!
Tea tree oil is always a concentrate that must first be diluted in carrier oils like coconut because the skin on the scalp is more sensitive compared to the rest of your body. Make sure you use the 2-3 drops of tea tree oil in 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil and yes, that much is enough to treat dandruff. Make sure you apply the preparation to your hair once a week and you will see the difference. You can also use hair products infused with tea trees for maximum results.
If you’ve ever talked to your grandmother about beauty products, you know that people have sworn by the beauty benefits of neem leaf for decades. Neem leaves are filled with antibacterial properties that help with skin infections, making them a perfect home remedy for dandruff.
All you have to do is:
1. Crush 30-40 clean neem leaves into a paste and mix with coconut oil to make a smooth paste.
2. Leave on for 30-40 minutes.
3. Now you can either use the lumpy mixture directly on your scalp or, if you don’t like the texture, strain the oil to make a neem infused mixture. You can even save the infused oil and use it every week for additional benefits.
3. Apple cider vinegar:
While expensive products and home remedies help reduce dandruff, sometimes all you need is a good pH-balancing hair conditioner to do the trick. Apple cider vinegar is known as a miracle ingredient that helps deal with dead skin cells, making it another great anti-dandruff ingredient.
All you have to do is take a tablespoon of ACV and mix it with water in a mug. Run it over your hair and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with normal water and off you go! As an added bonus, ACV also helps give your hair a natural shine.
