Dandruff is one of the most common hair issues. It can make your scalp itchy, flaky and also lead to hair fall. Some major causes of dandruff include dry scalp, scalp infections caused due to fungus or even due to reactions against hair products.
While there are plenty of products available in the market, there is no guarantee that they will completely cure dandruff and its underlying causes. And the continuous use of chemicals can also cause hair damage. Therefore, it is much better to adopt some natural remedies to treat dandruff effectively.
Apart from home-made shampoos and hair masks, we can also use hair rinses or hair washes per se to get rid of dandruff easily at home. Today, we'll be discussing one such hair rinse made of natural ingredients like apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and rose water. Let us see how to prepare this natural hair rinse to treat dandruff.
What You'll Require
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup rose water
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
How To Do
In a clean glass jar, first add the required amount of water. Next, add rose water and stir the solution well. Cut a lemon into two halves and squeeze in few drops of this fresh lemon juice into the jar. Finally, you need to add the apple cider vinegar into it and mix all the ingredients well.
Wash your hair as you normally do with a mild shampoo and conditioner. After washing your hair pour this mixture on your hair and gently massage your scalp and hair in a circular motion with your fingertips for 3 to 5 minutes. Let the solution stay there for another 15 to 20 minutes before you rinse it off with cold water. For best results, it is recommended to use this at least once a week.
Benefits Of Rose Water
Rose water is not only something that smells amazing but it can also help in soothing the scalp and thus preventing dandruff. It has healing, moisturising and nourishing properties that make it most suitable to cure dandruff.
Benefits Of Lemon Juice
The antifungal properties of lemon juice prevent scalp infections, thereby promoting scalp health. It also helps in balancing the pH of the scalp and shedding away the dead skin cells. Lemon also helps in soothing the scalp by healing any irritation or infection on the scalp.
Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has antibacterial and antifungal properties that help in treating dandruff and other scalp infections. It also deeply cleanses the scalp and removes all the build-ups and impurities on the scalp that often leads to dandruff. It also helps in balancing the oil production of the scalp.
