Dandruff Treatment

  1. Ingredients:
    • 2 ounces of Nettle: Nettle has anti-inflammatory properties and may help reduce scalp irritation and itchiness commonly associated with dandruff.
    • 2 ounces of Aloe: Aloe vera has soothing and moisturizing properties, which can help alleviate dryness and itchiness of the scalp.
    • 2 ounces of Rosemary: Rosemary has antimicrobial properties and may help combat fungal or bacterial overgrowth on the scalp that can contribute to dandruff.
  2. Preparation:
    • Boil 1 pint (16 ounces) of water in a pot or kettle.
    • Measure out 2 ounces each of nettle, aloe, and rosemary.
    • Place the herbs in a heat-resistant container, such as a teapot or glass jar.
    • Pour the boiling water over the herbs, ensuring they are fully submerged.
    • Cover the container and let the mixture steep for about 15 to 20 minutes to allow the herbs to infuse into the water.
  3. Usage:
    • Once the infusion has cooled down, strain the mixture to remove the herbs, resulting in an herbal dandruff-fighting solution.
    • After shampooing your hair, use the herbal infusion as a final rinse.
    • Slowly pour the infusion onto your scalp, ensuring it reaches the roots of your hair.
    • Gently massage your scalp for a few minutes to promote circulation and allow the herbal solution to penetrate.
    • Leave the infusion on your scalp for a few minutes, then rinse it out with cool water.

Everyday dandruff hair treatment

This is my personal recommendation for getting rid of dandruff. It “cured” my dandruff!

Ingredients:

  • 6 ounces of “Maple Holistic Calming Massage Oil”: This oil is known for its calming and moisturizing properties, which can help soothe the scalp and reduce dryness.
  • 2 ounces of Jamaican Black Castor Oil: Jamaican Black Castor Oil is believed to have nourishing properties and may help strengthen the hair and promote a healthier scalp.
  • 1 ounce of Tea Tree Oil: Tea Tree Oil has antifungal and antimicrobial properties, which can help combat the yeast or bacteria that may contribute to dandruff.

Instructions:

  1. In a clean, empty bottle or container, combine 6 ounces of “Maple Holistic Calming Massage Oil”.
  2. Add 2 ounces of Jamaican Black Castor Oil to the mixture.
  3. Finally, add 1 ounce of Tea Tree Oil to the bottle.
  4. Close the bottle tightly and shake well to ensure the oils are thoroughly mixed.

Usage:

  1. Before application, ensure your scalp and hair are clean.
  2. Take a small amount of the mixture onto your fingertips or a cotton ball.
  3. Part your hair into sections and apply the mixture directly to your scalp.
  4. Gently massage the scalp in circular motions for a few minutes to help stimulate circulation and promote absorption of the oils.
  5. Leave the mixture on your scalp for at least 30 minutes or overnight for maximum benefits.
  6. After the recommended time, wash your hair thoroughly with a mild shampoo to remove the oil residue. (I personally do not wash the oils from my hair)
  7. Repeat this treatment 1-2 times per week or as needed.

Remember, everyone’s scalp and hair may react differently, so it’s important to perform a patch test before applying the mixture to your entire scalp. If you experience any irritation or discomfort, discontinue use and consult a dermatologist or healthcare professional for further guidance.
