Get rid of the problem quickly and economically with these homemade and all-natural dandruff treatments.
Dandruff is a common issue that affects people of all ages. Many are reluctant to try store-bought shampoos and treatments, trying to go the natural way instead. Today we give you two recipes to treat dandruff at home with two kitchen staples!
DIY Baking Soda Dandruff Shampoo:
Baking soda's gritty texture grabs and removes the dirt and excess oil from your hair as well as the loose skin cells from your scalp that cause dandruff. Unlike many commercial dandruff shampoos, this will not strip your scalp of its much-needed natural oils. Over time, this leads to a healthier scalp and healthier hair.
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1 cup of water
- 2-3 drops rosemary essential oil (optional)
- Combine 1 tablespoon baking soda for every cup of water and mix well.
- Pour over your hair and massage into your scalp.
- Rinse your hair thoroughly.
Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse:
Another home remedy that combats dandruff is a weekly rinse with apple cider vinegar. It may smell at the moment of usage, but rinsing it with water gets rid of the aroma.
- 1 part apple cider vinegar
- 1 part of warm water
Mix the water and vinegar. Most people can use 1 cup, but those with long and thick hair may need to use 2 or more cups.
Pour the vinegar water over your hair.
Gently massage into your hair and scalp for 3-5 minutes.
Rinse with clean water.
After 8-12 hours, wash your hair as normal.
