How to get rid of dandruff naturally, home remedy, DIY hair pack to treat dandruff at home

Holaaaa people!

Hope everyone is doing well. Winters are slowly going away. I enjoyed this winter thoroughly but what this winter cursed me with is-Hell lot of dandruff in my hair. I tried many shampoos, different rinses, oiling, DIYs but nothing worked well for me. I did hell lot of research on dandruff and how to get rid of it, then finally I made a hair pack which helped me removing my dandruff upto a greater extent and I'm very happy to share it with all of you.

Before going to tell you about my hair pack lets know something about the causes and types of dandruff-

Dandruff is basically of two types-

  • Dry and flaky dandruff (dry scalp)
  • Oily scalp related dandruff
Out of which, oily scalp related dandruff is more dangerous and prone to fungal infection. Dry or flaky dandruff is when you see flakes over your hair or sometimes on your shoulders too. (I hope everyone has seen the head and shoulder's commercial ft kareena kapoor and saif ali khan :P) These flakes are nothing but the dead skin cells which have been shedding from your head scalp.

Well many of us when looking for ways to get rid of this annoying dandruff, usually come to know that we should wash and oil our hair daily, massage the anti-dandruff shampoo to our scalp and leave it on for say 5 mins etc etc..But duhhh!! These anti dandruff shampoos contain hell lot of chemicals such as coal tar extract,salicyclic acid,selenium sulfide,sulfur and zinc pyrithione. And these are used in most commonly known drugstore brands like head and shoulders, pantene,clinic all clear and many more. These chemicals help removing dandruff from our hair up to an extent but none of them can ensure that the dandruff has gone from our hair permanently, or it won't come back again. So washing hair with these kind of shampoos on a daily basis is not my cup of tea. Thats why I discovered a new formulation for getting rid of dandruff naturally.

So, to make this hair pack, You will need following things:
  • One full cup of curd
  • Neem powder
  • half a lemon
  • Vitamin-E oil
  • Amla powder( Additional ingredient)

DIY hair pack to get rid of dandruff
Take one full cup of curd and whip it so that there is no lumps left. Add 2 tbsp of neem powder in it. I got mine from an ayurvedic shop but you can also make it at your home by drying the neem leaves and grinding them altogether. Now squeeze half a lemon in it and add 2-3 evion capsules(Vitamin-E) in it. I also added 2 tbsp of amla(Indian gooseberry) powder in it, but that's totally optional. Amla helps in strengthening the hair and promote hair growth.

 Mix all the ingredients together and apply it on your hair scalp and all the way to stands. Wear a shower cap and leave this hair pack in your for half an hour. Then rinse with a mild shampoo. You don't need to apply conditioner after using this hair pack. I have used this hair pack 4 times and now my dandruff has completely gone.

This is how the hair pack finally looked like

Points to be kept in mind:

  • Don't keep the hair pack more than 30-35 minutes in your hair, because if it get dries too much and then it will make trouble while rinsing.
  •  After rinsing your hair don't try to rub the hair with towel. Just wrap the towel on your entire head and gently take it off after 5-10 minutes.
  • Pat your hair air-dry or dry the hair in sun. Don't use blow drier or any heat styling tool in your hair specially when you have dandruff.
  • Always final rinse your hair with cold water. The colder the water is, the better. Cold water will close all the open pores on your scalp and make your hair shiner and smoother.
  • Oil your hair regularly. You should have a nice head massage a day or night before you are gonna wash your hair especially if you have dry or itchy scalp.
  • Eat healthy food and drink plenty of water. Also, be patient. You have to use this hair pack 4-5 times in the order to get rid of your dandruff completely.
Use this hair pack and tell me about the results on your hair.
