Posted by Elizebath Bijoy Friday, April 8, 2011

It's a rampant problem amongst the population as it affects many kids, teenagers and adults.Dandruff can be described as a condition wherein, there occurs flaking of the scalp that falls on one's shoulders and face too. 

This occurs due to infection by bacteria and fungus, and it is an infectious condition. It leads to frequent itching coupled with excessive formation of scales on the skin. It is advised that one should not share towels, combs or hair brushes as dandruff is infectious. 

Its best to treat dandruff using natural remedies than artificial chemical based products. Here are some ways to do so: 

It is important to comb your hair daily as this promotes blood circulation inside the scalp. Also, regularly massage your scalp with herbal oil. 

Use hot olive or sesame oil on the scalp before bedtime. Next morning, rub little lime juice on your scalp one hour prior to bathing. Wash and rinse your hair well. 

Prepare a mixture of equal amounts of vinegar and water. Apply this on your scalp and leave it on overnight. Wash your hair the next morning with a mild baby shampoo. 

Soak a handful of fenugreek or methi seeds in some water overnight. Next day, grind the seeds to a paste. Apply this on your scalp and leave to rest for a couple of hours. Rinse your hair with shikakai or ritha. 

Massaging the scalp with fresh apple juice is said to fade dandruff away. 

A solution of beetroot juice, vinegar and some ginger juice, when applied on the scalp helps to get rid of dandruff. 

Washing your hair with powder of green grams is another remedy.
