Natural Dandruff Treatment
Homemade dandruff remedies are much better for your hair and scalp than the chemicals that are found in dandruff shampoos.
-Flaxseed oil or Olive oil
– finely granulated white sugar or brown sugar
– Apple cider vinegar
Mix a tablespoon or two of flaxseed oil or olive oil and a teaspoon of sugar into a bowl. Apply the mixture to the scalp and massage in.Wrap hair up in a hot wet towel and let the oil soak in for about 20 minutes. You can also put hair up in a shower cap.While you’re letting the oil work on your dry scalp, mix up 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, to 2 cups lukewarm water. For best results, put it in a spray bottle.Get in the shower and rinse out the flaxseed oil from the scalp using a small amount of shampoo. Rinse thoroughly.Turn off the water and separating your hair into sections, spray the scalp thoroughly with the vinegar/water mixture. Then massage the vinegar into the scalp.
Wrap hair again in a hot wet towel or in a shower cap. Let the vinegar mixture soak into your scalp for 20 minutes to an hour. Rinse one last time.
