Tips to control Dandruff
Since time immemorial mankind has suffered from dandruff – that dry, flaky powder-like substance that leaves many of us feeling uncomfortable and self-conscious. Research estimates that almost 50% of the world’s population suffers from dandruff. That’s a whopping 3.5 billion people suffering with this irritating condition!
Also known as Seborrhoea, dandruff targets the scalps of both the young and old. That’s not all, dandruff also leads to other common skin issues like pimples and acne. Typically dandruff is caused by a dry scalp. Bad hair brushing and shampooing habits, stress and improper diets, can and will make your scalp more susceptible to dandruff.
While dandruff can be a rather embarrassing and confidence-lowering condition, in most instances it is not too serious and there are many home remedies for you to try and control this issue.
Here are some of them.
3 Simple Home Remedies for Dandruff Cure:
1. Baking Soda
Baking soda is a popular choice for treating dandruff at home mainly because it is easy to find in almost every kitchen. All you need to do is to wet your hair slightly and while keeping it wet, rub in a spoonful of baking soda on your scalp. You can then leave it on for about 2 minutes before washing it off.
2. Lime and Coconut Oil massage
Rubbing lime on your scalp is quite a common remedy against dandruff, but mixing it with coconut oil increases its effectiveness. Lime juice helps treat dandruff without the use of harmful chemicals while the coconut oil nourishes your hair.
All you need to do is heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and mix it with equal amounts of lime juice then gently massage your scalp gently with the mixture. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and rinse off with a shampoo.
Curd is a popular delicacy at the lunch or desert table in many homes, but curd is also an effective remedy against dandruff – albeit a bit messy. Apply a bit of curd to your hair and scalp, let it sit tight for about an hour and rinse off with a mild shampoo.
