Ever since I could remember I’ve been struggling with dandruff. Having dandruff can be extremely annoying! Try brushing your hair, and your black chair will turn into a white chair. Those with serious dandruff issues are totally relating right now!
I’ve literally tried everything possible that has been invented and nothing has worked. From shampoos to leave- in conditioners, nothing has been able to take care of my dandruff, until I came across this little home remedy which I promise you will be thanking me later!
You will need these two ingredients: coconut oil and tea tree oil.
Put a tablespoon or two of coconut oil in a bowl (the amount of coconut oil you use depends on the length of your hair), I usually put about 2 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Thereafter, add a few drops of tea tree oil. Take the mixture and heat it in the microwave for a few minutes until warm; massage into scalp.
- Coconut oil: coconut oil is extremely rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients which allows your hair to extremely strong and shiny. Coconut oil is also rich in antioxidants, and has antiviral, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties. When used on hair, it improves scalp health, fights infections and fungus; it targets the fungus and helps to kill dandruff as well as viruses and bacteria that may be lurking on your scalp.
- Tea tree oil: tea tree oil allows your hair to grow by healing your damaged or clogged hair follicles. It is also quite effective in treating the scalp as it contains anti- septic and antibiotic properties which kills the fungus that causes dandruff.
Both these ingredients are working at combating dandruff. Heating the oil and massaging it into the scalp helps stimulate blood flow to the scalp, the warm oil soothes an itchy scalp and helps to keep the dandruff from getting worse.
Do this at least twice a week if your dandruff is really bad and you will see the results within a week or two.
