Easy Herbal Home Remedies to a Dandruff-free Scalp

My hair has grown very long now. I haven't been thinking at all about chopping off some length, particularly because I haven't had any split ends since long. Thanks to my genes and the love and care and guidance my mother gave me towards hair care since I was a child, it has been really useful! I've always had healthy hair and even post pregnancy, my tresses are one of those things I have never had to be concerned about!

Today, I want to share a few easy, home remedies for a dandruff-free scalp during winter. Please click HERE for the step by step easy tip/guidance for a healthy and flake-free scalp during this dandruff-prone part of the year! 

Herbal remedies are easy and inexpensive. But they need to be applied consistently as the effects are relatively slower than strong chemical products but long term and effective. Some direct benefits of the natural ingredients I have used in my tips in the link above are given below. I hope they will be helpful to you. If you have questions, don't hesitate to mention them in your comments.

1. Henna - Henna is a natural conditioner for the hair. It maintains the acid and alkaline balance of the hair and also helps stimulate the growth of new hair.

2. Lemon - Lemon juice contains Vitamin C, B and magnesium. It prevents dandruff and also cleanses the scalp of excess sebum which clogs the hair follicles and therefore, promotes hair growth. Its citric properties also promote shine and lend volume to hair.

3. Fenugreek - Fenugreek seeds contain Carbohydrates, Protien, Minerals, Phosphorous, Calcium and Iron. It is one of the best treatments for skin problems.

4. Amlaki (Indian Gooseberry) - Amlaki contains Ascorbic Acid which strengthens hair.

5. Vibhitaka (Terminallia Bellirica) - Contains Gallic Acid that cleanses scalp of impurities and promotes the growth of hair.

6. Haritaki (Terminalia Chebula) - Conatins Chebulagic Acid and Chebulinic Acid that maintains pigmentation and promotes healthy hair roots.
