Neem is very common when it comes to treating various diseases at home. When it comes to treating dandruff, neem oil can be very beneficial. Though there are several products from various brands available in the market for treating dandruff hair issues, they only make the condition even worse. Therefore, we must be very careful while purchasing hair products for treating dandruff. Further, it is best to use all natural products for treating dandruff.
Today we are sharing ways in which neem oil can be used for treating dandruff.
Firstly, start with a clean scalp and hair. Apply a generous amount of apple cider vinegar on your scalp and leave it on for around 2-3 minutes. Rinse your hair properly and let it dry partially. Apply very little amount of neem oil on your scalp. Lastly, dry your hair using a clean towel.
You can also prepare your own neem shampoo at home very easy. For preparing the shampoo, add around half a tablespoon of neem oil to your regular sample and shake the bottle well. Make sure that the oil is mixed with the shampoo completely. Use this shampoo instead of your regular sample for once or twice a week for best results.
Using only concentrated neem oil can be very strong for your hair at times. It is always a good idea to mix the neem oil with other oils like olive oil, almond oil or coconut oil before using it on your scalp.
However, less concentrated neem oil can be applied on scalp but make sure that you shampoo your hair after one hour of the application.
Another great way of using neem oil for treating dandruff is by mixing equal quantities of neem oil, tea tree oil and basil oil. Apply the mixture of oil prepared on your scalp instead of your regular shampoo. Also, we would like to mention that this oil is suitable for all hair types.
Apart from being an excellent dandruff curing ingredient, neem oil is also useful for promoting hair growth. You can also add neem oil to a hair mask. For preparing the hair mask take 1 tsp of bhringaraj, 1 spoon of neem oil, 1 tsp of shikakai and 1 tsp of methi or fenugreek powder and mix well to prepare a smooth paste. Apply the hair mask prepared on your scalp and hair and leave it on for 1 hour and then wash it off using a mild shampoo.
