Dandruff is a very common scalp condition and it can only be treated with proper treatment. It is mostly cause due to extremely oily or dry skin conditions, improper washing or brushing of hair regularly, and stress.
There are many natural ways to get rid of dandruff, but this method with apple cider vinegar is the best, and here is why:
Apple cider vinegar is rich in mallic acid (an organic acid). Apart from that it also has powerful enzymes that help kill bacteria and fungus that tend to cause dandruff. It also helps to open up clogged pores and acts as a mild conditioner for your hair.
The acid content helps to reduce itchiness of the scalp and drastically brings down flaking. A bonus benefit of this wonder liquid is that it gives your hair a lovely shine and volume.
How to use it:
1. mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water.
2.Then part your hair and apply the mixture onto your scalp with the help of a cotton ball.
3.Make sure that the vinegar touches your scalp and do not merely apply it on your hair shaft.
4.Once you have applied it all over your scalp, gently massage it in.
5.Now wrap your hair in a bun, making sure the ends of your hair are tucked into the bun (this will ensure that even the tips of your hair are conditioned).
6.Wrap a warm towel on your hair to ensure that the pores of your scalp open up and the vinegar gets a chance to percolate into the skin.
7.Leave this in for one hour and wash off with warm water. Do not use shampoo after applying apple cider vinegar. The vinegar smell will disappear once your hair is dry.
8.Repeat this process twice a week for one month and your dandruff will magically disappear.
If you have sensitive skin, apply a small portion on the base of your hair line, at the back of your head, to check for any allergies you might develop.
