Sick and tired of the unoriginal yet highly embarrassing, “Is it snowing?’ jokes? IF your scalp has decided to turn rogue and destroy your outfit with a seemingly endless flurry of white flakes, don’t just brush them off and tell yourself to ignore the situation; it’s time to take control. No, you do not need to run out and bulk buy Head and Shoulders – check out these amazing dandruff diminishing tips and very soon your scalp (and outfit) will be happy again.
Brimming with all-important anti-fungal properties, coconut oil probably is one of the best dandruff destroying products around. All you need to do is mix a little coconut oil with some lemon juice (half the amount of lemon juice to coconut oil). Simply massage the wonder potion into your scalp, leave on for 15 minutes and rinse well. This process can be repeated twice weekly until you are satisfied all evidence of dandruff is gone. Hooray!
This is super-effective in combatting the pesky flaking situation. Like coconut oil, it is loaded with anti-fungal properties, and will work like a dream to rid the scalp of dandruff whilst offering natural cleansing. Furthermore, you will discover your hair is unbelievably soft and shiny! To make: 3 parts water, 2 parts white vinegar and 1 part olive oil, and mix. Apply to your scalp and rinse off after 15 minutes. Once again, this treatment should be repeated twice per week until the problem has gone, forever!
You may be surprised to find that baking soda isn’t just great in cooking – it actually provides an array of benefits and will treat a multitude of sins. If you are in any doubt, just ask your great-gran. In the case of dandruff or oily hair, baking soda will soak up excess sebum and maintain pH balance of your scalp; prohibits the growth of fungus; work as a mild exfoliator, and thwarts the onset of dandruff. Apply a small amount onto wet hair, rubbing into the scalp. After a few minutes, rinse hair well, remembering not to shampoo your hair for the rest of the day. This treatment should only be used once per week – however this should be all you need. Next week the only thing you will be brushing off are a stream of compliments (much better problems to have).
