Dandruff Prevention: Causes and Best Natural Treatments

Post by iulia on Thu Sep 18, 2008 9:59 am

Causes of Dry, Itchy Scalp
Learning how to control flakes is not rocket science, although it may seem like a tough challenge at first. First, you should understand what causes dandruff. The main cause of dandruff is the fungus Malassezia. This fungus feeds on oils and cholesterol already present in your scalps skin cells. Often the fungus can be caused by toxins in commercial shampoos. Dandruff shampoo and conditioner often works because they contain tar (which burns the flakes off of the scalp).

Natural Treatment of Flakes
You can naturally (and safely) control and cure your dandruff with homemade scalp mixtures. Using items in your kitchen you can quickly manage your scalp in a natural and effective way!

Vinegar can be used for the treatment of dandruff. Sufferers can mix 3 teaspoons of vinegar with 7 teaspoons of water, apply it to their scalp at bed time and wrap the head with a shower cap or towel. In the morning, the hair should be washed with gentle shampoo and conditioner.

Another home remedy includes mixing 1 teaspoon of lemon juice with several teaspoons of vinegar. After rubbing this mixture into the scalp, mix several eggs in a bowl and pour them onto your hair. Rinse with gentle shampoo and conditioner, as normal.

Olive oil and almond oil are also known to help control dandruff. You can mix the two together, apply it to your scalp and leave it for several minutes. Then wash and condition your hair for shiny and dandruff-free results.
While dandruff shampoos may be effective, they are often only quick fixes to the problem of dandruff. Natural solutions and homemade rinses are often more effective for the treatment of dandruff. However, if you notice your condition worsening you should see your doctor immediately.

All the tips that you mention here are very effective. Instead of these i share some other tips.
1. Coconut oil- Massage with hot oil in night and rinse with cold water. You can also massage in day whenever you have free time. Always rinse with simple temperature temper.
2. Curd or yogurt- Use raw curd in hairs and rinse with simple water after 1-2 hours
3. Mix one tea spoon of Lemon juice in raw curd and apply mixture for 1-2 hours

Thanks
