    Dandruff Treatment using Fenugreek Seeds

    The use of fenugreek seeds is one of the most important remedies in the treatment of dandruff. Two tablespoons of these seeds should be soaked overnight in water and ground into a fine paste in the morning. This paste should be applied all over the scalp and left for half an hour. The hair should then be washed thoroughly with soap-nut (ritha) solution or acacia concinna. This dandruff home remedy is especially effective for those suffering from dry dandruff. You will need to use this anti dandruff treatment at least twice a week for the first two weeks and then once a week for another two weeks. You could also use the water that you soak the seeds as an after-shower hair tonic. After you shampoo your hair, allow it to dry naturally and then soak a cotton ball in this liquid and apply it to your scalp. This is one of the simplest and most effective dandruff solutions and it can also be used as a preventative measure to make sure that you don’t have to suffer from dandruff again. The market is flooded with shampoos that claim to be the “best anti dandruff shampoo”, so make sure that you choose reliable products that suit your hair type.

    Dandruff Treatment using Beet

    Dandruff can be removed by massaging the hair for half an hour with curd which has been kept in the open for three days, or with a few drops of lime juice mixed with indian gooseberry juice every night, before going to bed. Another measure which helps to counteract dandruff is to dilute cider vinegar with an equal quantity of water and dab this on to the hair with cotton wool inbetween shampooing. Cider vinegar added to the final rinsing water after shampooing also helps to disperse dandruff.

    Other Dandruff treatments

    Keep hair and scalp clean to avoid accumulation of dead cells

    The foremost consideration in the treatment of this disorder is to keep the hair and scalp clean so as to minimise the accumulation of dead cells.
    Hair should be brushed daily to improve circulation

    The hair should be brushed daily to improve the circulation and remove any flakiness. The most effective way to brush the hair is to bend forward from the waist with the head down towards the ground, and brush from the nape of the neck towards the top of the head. The scalp should also be thoroughly massaged everyday, using one's finger tips and working systematically over the head. This should be done just before or after brushing the hair. Like brushing, this stimulates the circulation, dislodges dirt and dandruff, and encourages hair growth. Exposure of the head to the rays of the sun is also a useful measure in the treatment of dandruff.
    Warm-Water Enema

    During the first five days of the treatment when the patient takes an all-fruit diet, a warm-water enema should be taken daily to cleanse the bowels. Simultaneously, an attempt should be made to keep the body in good health.

    Re: dandruff problem

    Your Shampoo Is Very Important

    The very best Dandruff Home Remedy I can recommend is Olive Oil Shampoo. It will not only bring a nice luster to your hair it also conditions your hair and scalp. Once you experience using Olive Oil Shampoo you'll notice you won't need to buy hair conditioner anymore. It's time to stop washing your hair with detergent. Any shampoo you buy over the counter in your drugstore or supermarket is nothing more than detergent. Yes, some shampoo has a mixture of hair conditioner in it. Which is still nothing more than wax or a liquid form of plastic. Its no wonder so many people are having major problems with dry itchy scalps and dandruff. After all, dandruff is nothing more than dry skin that is flaking off. But when you add plastic or wax on your hair that is bound to flake off too. Sure you can purchase the higher priced shampoo the beauty shops sell, but that's all they are, higher priced.
    When you find handmade Olive Oil Shampoo it may seem a bit expensive for a bar of shampoo but it actually lasts as long as a regular bottle of shampoo. Plus you won't have to added expense of buying conditioner. Most important, it is one of the best Dandruff Home Remedy's money can buy.
    I have to warn you though, after you use Olive Oil Shampoo for awhile it tends to over condition your hair and it is a good idea to keep a cheap bottle of any kind of shampoo on hand just to us once in awhile.
    Another warning about Olive Oil Shampoo is be careful if you like getting a Permanent Wave in your hair. The shampoo is great if you want to relax the curl or take the frizz out but if you like your hair very curly then use it for the first wash but use regular shampoo for the second wash.
