New Delhi, Dryness of the scalp or dandruff on the scalp is common. This problem sometimes happens in everyone’s hair. Many times the dandruff increases so much that it falls from the hair and appears on the shoulders or back. This happens when the hair and scalp become dry. Beauty expert Shahnaz Hussain is telling home remedies on how to avoid dry scalp and dandruff.
Oil massage is beneficial
A warm oil massage is a useful home remedy for common dandruff prevention. It relieves the dryness of the scalp and also prevents the pores of the scalp from getting clogged. For this, heat coconut oil and apply it on the scalp with a cotton ball. Gently rub and massage to remove clumps of dandruff. Then dip the towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wrap the towel around the head like a turban. Keep it on for 5 minutes. Repeat this process 3 or 4 times. By doing this, the oil is absorbed well in the scalp and hair.
Healthy Hair Tonic
To remove dandruff, apply the oil to the scalp and hair and leave it on overnight. Apply lemon juice on the scalp in the morning and wash the hair after 15 minutes. Do not use very hot water to wash your hair. After shampooing, mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a mug of water and wash your hair with it.
Home Remedies to Avoid Dry Scalp and Dandruff:
Grind one spoon of fenugreek seeds coarsely and soak them overnight in two cups of water. Pick it up in the morning. After shampooing, finally wash your hair with this water.
Mix two handfuls of neem leaves in four to five cups of hot water. Leave it like this overnight. Filter the water in the morning. Use this water to wash your hair after shampooing. This remedy relieves itching and keeps the scalp healthy and free from infection, as well as relieves dandruff.
Applying mehndi once a week makes hair look healthy and shiny, and also gets rid of dandruff. For this, make a thick paste by mixing 4 spoons of lemon juice and coffee, 2 raw eggs, one spoon of fenugreek seeds powder and tea water as needed in henna powder. Boil the used tea leaves again in enough water, cool, filter and add to the mixture. Apply this mehndi hair pack on your hair and wash it off after an hour. If you don’t want to use eggs, add more tea water. This hair pack not only helps in removing dandruff, but also conditions the hair, giving hair strength and shine.
Amla Hair Oil
To make it, grind a handful of dry amla and mix it in 100 ml of coconut oil. Fill it in an airtight glass bottle and keep the bottle in sunlight for about 15 days. Then strain the oil and store it. This oil can be used regularly to avoid dry scalp and dandruff.
Include fruits, salads and sprouted grains in your diet to avoid dry scalp and dandruff and keep your hair healthy. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily. Mix the juice of one lemon in a glass of water and drink it first thing in the morning. Take special care to clean your hair. Do not use other people’s combs.
