Easy Homemade Treatment for Dandruff
Dandruff is the most common hair problem and the guaranteed anti-dandruff agent is the fresh buttermilk of your kitchen. Buttermilk in hair packs provides the best hair treatment. Another efficient kitchen ingredient is fenugreek seeds or powder.
Buttermilk for treating dandruff
First of all apply oil to the scalp. Choose a hair oil that will help reduce dandruff. We suggest using Dabur Amla Hair Oil, since amla is a good treatment for dandruff. After oiling your hair proceed with the buttermilk hair treatment.
Take a clean bowl and add freshly churned buttermilk. Take a piece of medicated cotton; dip into the bowl and apply to the entire hair scalp. Massage your hair gently for 10 minutes and let the buttermilk remain in your scalp for about 30 minutes. Shampoo your hair as usual and rinse out the buttermilk with warm water. Follow this at least twice in a week for a dandruff-free scalp. Buttermilk also prevents the returning of dandruff. While applying, you might experience a mess of dripping buttermilk, so try using a shower cap. The buttermilk smell lingers in the hair for some time which may be awkward for some. To solve this issue, you might add Gulabari Rose Water for a flowery fragrance. Rose Water makes the hair soft and silky.
Fenugreek hair pack for treating dandruff
Fenugreek seeds are very good for hair growth and the combination of fenugreek with buttermilk forms a great hair pack.
- 2 spoons of fenugreek seeds or fenugreek powder
- One bowl buttermilk
You can either soak Fenugreek seeds overnight or you can use fenugreek powder directly. If you have soaked the seeds, then blend it along with buttermilk to make a fine paste. If you use fenugreek powder, then directly add it to the bowl of buttermilk. Do not make the hair pack very thick, let it be of medium consistency. Apply to the hair and scalp using your fingers or a small brush. Leave it for half an before wash. Continue with your normal hair wash using a mild shampoo.
