Banish Dandruff Naturally for good
Because we like keeping our readers happy, we thought we’d extend our promise of providing you with a natural remedy to dandruff to include one that is so easy; your pet dog could do it!
Three simple steps and you’re on your way to being dandruff free for keeps.
But before we get into the steps, you should know a little more about the main hero in this fixer upper - Neem.
The Neem Tree has been used in India for centuries as a healer of many ailments and its unique abilities have been passed down generations with many referring to its uses in Hindi as “Grandma’s wise natural cures”. Indian children are well versed with its plethora of uses and particularly bitter taste. But then again, since when has anything good for you been great to smell or taste?
Neem is known for its numerous anti-bacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antipyretic, antiseptic and blood purifying properties. Unfortunately though, herbs like Ginseng and Echinacea are more widely recognised worldwide. Research has proven that Neem has a wider array of uses than any other herb. Used in health and beauty throughout the ages, the first recorded indication of its use was 4500 years old! Talk about experience.
Affectionately called the “Village Pharmacy”, the use of Neem even predates the benefits of Willow Tree, Myrrh, Pine and Thyme.
So now that you know a little more about this wonder plant, time to get into some Neem magic and deliver on that promise we made at the beginning of the article on how to stay dandruff free during winter.
1. If you can, go and purchase some NEEM leaves pronto. If you aren’t anywhere near the South East Asian region, don’t fret. Purchase some NEEM powder instead (easily available at Health Food Outlets and most Indian Grocery Stores), which is fairly inexpensive.
2. Soak some Neem leaves/Neem Powder in warm water overnight.
3. Rinse your hair with the liquid and don’t wash it out for at least half an hour.
How simple is that, right?
Now remember, like most things natural, the effects will not be immediate and this process requires diligent commitment from your side to work.
Trust in Mother Nature and her amazing abilities to heal us and you should start seeing a difference after a couple of months of usage.
You can do this as often as you like but try and do it at least twice a week.
For best results, shampoo and condition with a natural haircare range and you’re on your way!
