Dandruff removal

A dry, flaky scalp can ruin the look of your hair. Here’s are some tips to clear-up dandruff in no time:

Hot Oil Treatment
• 1/2 cup olive oil
• 1/2 cup boiling water

Place olive oil and boiling water into large glass bottle or jar with a lid. You may need to wrap a towel around the bottle to avoid burning yourself. Shake very well until oil is emulsified. Massage into hair, taking care not to burn your head. Put a shower cap or plastic bag over your hair and wrap your head in a hot towel that has been soaked in hot water then wrung out. Leave mixture on your hair for 1/2 hour, then shampoo as usual.

Mint Rinse
Boil:
• 1 cup water
• 1 cup apple cider vinegar
• 1 handful of fresh mint leaves
Strain and pour into a container. With fingertips, massage solution into the scalp, let dry without rinsing out.

Daily Dandruff Treatment
• 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
• 2 teaspoons dried thyme
• 2/3 cup boiling water
• 2/3 cup cider vinegar

1. Place the herbs in the bowl. Pour in the boiling water. Cover and allow steeping for 20 minutes.
2. Strain into a plastic bottle, add the vinegar, and shake. Store in a cool dry place.
Shampoo and rinse the hair thoroughly; massage a small amount into the scalp. Between shampoos, massage in a small amount before going to bed. This can help eliminate dandruff.

Pour vinegar into the hair, massage it into your scalp, and leave it to dry for a few minutes. Now wash your hair. Repeat daily until the dandruff disappears, usually within a few days.
Massage your scalp–Use a rubber glove to massage your head while shampooing in the shower. It will stimulate your scalp and promote healthy hair growth.

Here is an extremely simple and effective remedy. Apply plain Yogurt to your scalp and leave it for 30 minutes. Then use a regular shampoo, and your hair is healthy and clean.

Crush 10 aspirin and add them to 1 Tablespoon Shampoo. Wash hair as usual, massaging the scalp gently. Let the mixture sit for a minute and rinse. Instead of shampooing, massage handfuls of baking soda into the hair and scalp to absorb oil and to loosen dead skin on scalp. Rinse thoroughly.

Take plain yogurt and mix with 2 tablespoons of soy flour and egg white and apply. Shampoo after 1 hour. Do this once in a week for 4 to 5 weeks to get rid of dandruff.

Boil 3 Tbsp dried thyme in 1 cups water for 10 minutes. Strain and cool. Pour ½ mixture over clean, damp hair. Massage into scalp, do not rinse. Boil 1 ounce each of fresh or dried rosemary and sage in 2 cups of water. Let steep for 24 hours, then use daily as a hair rinse. Massage your scalp with carrot juice once in a week to cure dandruff.
