I love it when someone comes up to me and tells me that one of my natural health or natural beauty remedies really helped them! How great is that? So the other day when I was with a friend and she told me that baking soda had cured her dandruff, I got really excited as this week is “D” and D is for Dandruff – Darn Dots!
Here are a few more natural health remedies that will help you get rid of those nasty flakes -
Coconut Oil works great. Put enough warm coconut oil to cover your whole scalp into a bowl and add half as much of lemon juice to it. The warm oil makes it easier for the two to mix, although they won’t completely dissolve into liquid. Apply this on your scalp and leave overnight, covering your head with a shower cap. Shampoo with warm water in the morning. This will not only help relieve you of your dandruff problem but also reduce hair loss. See C is for Coconut Oil – Many Uses for Natural Beauty.
Tea Tree Oil is a natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Put about 4 or 5 drops into your regular shampoo and use this to get rid of dandruff. Massage well into the scalp (this will help to loosen flakes) and rinse with warm water.
Apple Cider Vinegar is a great product for your hair, not only to help get rid of dandruff, but also to make it shine. Mix one to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with about a cup of warm water, pour it on your scalp and let it sit for about three minutes. Rinse well with warm water. See V is for Vinegar – ACV for Natural Health.
Combining the tea tree shampoo with an ACV rinse afterwards will work wonders. And don’t forget my friend’s excellent results with baking soda! Out, out damn dandruff!
