About 50% of the population got dandruff in their twenties. Dandruff is a common scalp problem which usually flaky white particles that has fallen from hair and sticks to shoulder and clothes. Sometimes they may be noticed sometimes not. When I am in my teenage I struggle a lot with very bad oily, itchy and dandruff scalp. A lot of people may consider that dandruff cause of dry skin. You know flaking is too small that we can’t see it clearly. But dandruff is noticeable. A latest search shows that people who suffer from dandruff must have oily skin. Dandruff is a tiny or a small fungus called Malassezia globosa it grows too rapidly and disturbs our cells. It’s also the biggest cause of hair loss. When we are looking to get rid of dandruff as fast as possible our first preference are shampoos and cosmetic products which stands on the shelves of the superstore. There are so many shampoos and anti dandruff products which may help to control dandruff but they can’t help to get rid of it forever.

Do you ever think in your life that your grand parents wash their hair everyday? Unfortunately they don’t. When I gave up my all hopes after using so many cosmetic products. I decide to do an experiment which my mother shared with me.
First of all I stop using all commercial products and switch to organic shampoos like Burt’s bee.
I stop my hair washing so often two times per week. When I am washing my hair first I wet them with some warm water then use a little amount of shampoo but firstly I dissolve the shampoo in some water. Then use this mixture scalp to then gently massage with fingers for 2-3 minutes. Rinse it out with cold water. As I came to know that cold water is very important to close the scalp skin. Believe me when I continue using it for one month I notice a radical change in my hair. My hair looks so much shiners. I love this experiment now I continue using it throughout my life.
Some home remedies which are shared by my mom and grandmother. I usually use them twice or one a month, which not help not only helps to get rid of dandruff but also prevent hair fall.
Hot Oil Treatment:
We all know that hot oil treatment is very essential to get rid of dandruff; it also relieves dandruff and makes you relax free from any stress. For this you can use olive, almond or coconut oil. Heated and apply it on the scalp with the help of figures or cotton wool. Dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wrap the towel around the head. Keep it for one hour. Leave the oil for overnight. Next morning squeezes some juice from lemon and apply it on your scalp then leave it for 20-30 minutes. Then wash your hair with the above written method.
It’s very important to clean dry and itchy scalp properly but yoghurt helps a lot in this manner. Make a simple hair pack consist of yoghurt, egg, olive oil. Mix it properly and apply on your scalp. Let it stay for an hour or so. Then wash your hair. Do this treatment twice or once a week.
Monthly Henna (Mehndi) Treatment:
Henna not only helps to prevent dandruff but also add strength, shine, and condition your hair. For making henna pack you have to take following things.
3 Table spoon
1 Table spoon
1 Table spoon
For making tea water boil tea or tea leaves in water, cool and strain the liquid. Mix them all to make a thick paste. Apply henna on the hair and scalp leave for two hours. If you don’t like eggs like me then more tea water instead of it.
Don’t forget to use your comb and brushes. Clean your pillowcase every day. Moreover include some fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet routine. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water every day. Do some Cardio exercises 5 times in a week because it’s very important.
