DIY Potion Against Dandruff
A couple of months ago, I got a request from a reader named Ronnel, to feature homemade solutions for dandruff. Probably not satisfied with the endorsed remedies from Piolo, John Lloyd, Bea, or Angel Locsin, he wants me to dish out inexpensive yet effective ways of fighting dandruff. Although it took me ages to grant his request, it’s never too late to learn how to address the constant dilemma of flaky and itchy scalp by using ingredients you can easily find lying around the pantry.
The Materials You Need:
- 1/4 cup Grated Ginger
- 2 tbsp Virgin Coconut Oil
- 1 tsp Calamansi or lemon juice
1. Mix all ingredients
2. Apply and massage into your scalp
3. Leave it on for 15-30 minutes
5. Store the leftover mixture in a refrigerator and repeat the process 3x a week
Power behind the herbs:
Ginger has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. It is said to improve scalp circulation, and stimulate hair follicles, making it useful not only against dandruff, but for hair loss prevention as well (tip: mix it with malunggay/ moringa for hair restoration purposes). Coconut Oil contains medium chain fatty acids that exhibit antimicrobiall activity, while calamansi or lemon juice strips off the dead skin cells and dirt present on the scalp.
