A weekend of anti- dandruff hair care spa- how does it sound? Exciting? Well, dandruff is a stubborn problem we all have suffered. A daily hair care, proper oil massage, washing hair on alternative day- if you have done all of these and have seen no effective result till now, this article is for you.
After spending hours on researching what would be the best anti- dandruff remedy for all hair and scalp types, this is what we have come upto- a DIY anti- dandruff hair spa routine. Read the following sections to know how to get rid of dandruff at home.
Things you need to pile up for this routine-
- Tea tree oil/ Almond oil/ Olive oil/ Coconut oil
- Greek yogurt
- Lemon juice/ apple cider vinegar
- Anti- Dandruff shampoo/ mild/ natural shampoo
- Hair spa cream
Start by mixing Tea tree oil/ Almond oil/ Olive oil/ Coconut oil- any of these that are available with you. You can mix two oils and apply as well. Coconut oil and Tea tree oil is an excellent combination. So is the mixture of Olive oil, Almond oil and Coconut oil. Take two tablespoons of each and apply all over your hair and scalp. Remember whatever oil you choose, heat it a bit to get it absorbed by the scalp quickly. Tea tree oil and Cococnut oil are loaded with anti- fungal properties. Plus these two oils are calming and can reduce itchiness.
Add lemon juice into the oil- mix and apply on scalp. The citric acid present in lemon reduce dandruff and clean the scalp. While the oil work in moisturising and lessen itching. Leave this mix on hair and scalp for at least an hour.
After you are done with oiling your hair, wrap your hair and scalp with a towel dipped in warm water for 20 minutes.
Prepare an anti dandruff hair pack while the hot towel is on. As we said, remove the towel after 20 minutes and give yourself a quick massage. A good hair massage improves hair health, increase blood circulation on the scalp and hair, giving it a healthy glow.
After this, prepare an anti- dandruff hair mask.
You can take henna powder, ritha powder and shikakai powder and mix it with curd.
You can also make a thick paste of fenugreek seed powder, handful of hibiscus flower and leaves, and curd and apply that on your hair and scalp.
Hair pack made with neem power, aloe vera gel and henna is also a wonderful remedy to get rid of the stubborn dandruff problem. Keep the hair pack for an hour or two, till it dries off.
Wash the pack with enough water followed by ketomac shampoo.
Rinse the shampoo well and towel- dry your hair. Apply the spa cream thoroughly and again massage your hair and scalp with that. Leave it on for 20 more minutes. After this wash off your hair well.
End this whole process by washing your hair with a mixture made of two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and water.
Hope this whole routine helps you see visible result.
