Natural Ways to Fight Dandruff
Dealing with dandruff can be an exercise in frustration, especially if you’ve tried numerous remedies to get rid of this unsightly problem. If using harsh shampoos gives you pause, more natural remedies may be in order. These natural ingredients and products have been shown to relieve dandruff. Just because they’re natural doesn’t mean you should overdo it, however, so follow guidelines in order to make your problem better instead of worse.
Rosemary: You can use this herb in a couple of different ways to naturally fight dandruff. Infuse one rosemary tea bag in half a cup of hot water and allow to cool. Spritz this mixture onto your hair and massage it into your scalp. You can also use rosemary essential oil, adding a few drops to your shampoo; again, focus on your scalp when cleansing. Try either of these treatments once a week.
Baking soda: Inexpensive and widely available, baking soda is a true multitasking product. To combat dandruff, replace your shampoo with plain baking soda. After wetting your hair, put enough baking soda in your hands to gently scrub your scalp. Rinse completely and follow up with a moisturizing conditioner. Try this once a week or so, but if your hair begins to feel dried out, feel free to cut it down to a biweekly regimen.
Aloe vera gel or juice: This gentle liquid can be rubbed directly onto your scalp after shampooing and conditioning. You can also take the juice directly from a live aloe vera plant if you have one at home.
Apple cider vinegar: ACV is already touted as an effective rinse after shampooing; use it on your scalp for additional benefits. Add two tablespoons of vinegar to a cup of warm water and spritz it onto your hair, taking care to massage it into your scalp. Wrap your head in a warm towel and let the diluted vinegar mixture sit for 15 minutes; rinse thoroughly. Try this treatment once or twice a week.
Dandruff shampoos can be effective but harsh, so if one of these gentler methods doesn’t work after trying it a few times, try another until you find the one that works for you. If you are looking for gentle products to relieve your dry scalp, try our HAIRFINITY Haircare products.
