Are you facing hair loss continuously? Do you always feel the urge of scratching your head because of an itchy scalp? If yes, you have dandruff! It is a skin condition that causes the skin on your scalp to turn into flakes which often spread throughout your hair and shoulders. It can be caused by excessive use of chemical hair products or by merely a change of weather- dandruff mostly occurs in winters. Dandruff eventually can cause excessive hair loss and nobody really wants that so it is beneficial to treat this problem at the right time!
I kid you not, getting rid of dandruff is not so easy. So it is beneficial to use economical and easily available products to treat it! In my opinion, there is nothing convenient than using neem leaves to treat them as they can be easily grown in your gardens and for sure are always available in your kitchen.
Neem is rich with antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which helps it to cater to the dandruff problem. Adding to that it has blood purifying properties that help to maintain healthy and silky hair. It works like magic on your hair!
Add it to your hair care routine and diet and wait for it to do wonders on your hair! Here are a few of the ways one can use neem leaves to get rid of dandruff:
Starting off with the easiest method to use neem is to make neem water and apply it to your hair. It is so easy to make as it literally just requires neem leaves and water. Put the water on heat to boil and once it is done add the neem leaves. Strain the mixture and voila you’ll get neem water! It is beneficial to leave the neem water overnight before applying it so that the water soaks in all the benefits of neem. After washing your hair with shampoo, apply neem water to your hair and let it dry naturally. This will give instant relief from the itchiness that happens due to dandruff. Apply neem water to your hair twice or thrice a week and you’ll surely see dandruff reducing from your hair gradually!
Oiling is very necessary for your hair to grow healthy and dandruff free. Neem can also be converted into oil to cater to many hair problems. Add some neem leaves to coconut oil and boil the mixture. Strain the mixture and add some lemon juice and castor oil to make it extra beneficial for the hair. Apply this oil before washing your hair and let it stay in your hair so that your scalp can absorb all the nutrition from the oil. This prevents the scalp from becoming dry which leads to dandruff breakouts. Store the oil in a container and massage your hair with it twice a week to get the desired results!
Applying yogurt to your hair has various benefits as it acts as a perfect moisturizer for your hair. Adding neem to yogurt makes a very cooling mixture that helps your hair scalp not only to get rid of dandruff but also helps the hair to become healthier due to the neem’s anti-fungal properties. Grind some neem leaves to make a paste. Add the paste to yogurt and wait for a few minutes before mixing both. Then apply it to the scalp of your hair. This method is so economical and potentially an easier method to get rid of dandruff!
Hair masks have proved to be very beneficial in treating hair related problems especially dandruff and they are very easy to make. To make a neem hair mask first, boil some water and add a bunch of neem leaves in it. Then strain the leaves from the water and grind them to make a paste. Add some honey to this paste and voila here you have a neem mask! Apply this mask to your scalp regularly to give your scalp the much-needed moisture to prevent dandruff. The neem water that you have separated from the leaves can be used to cure dandruff too. So there is no wastage in this method!
Nowadays, many hair products are being made of natural ingredients because of their extensive benefits which attract customers. You can opt for a shampoo or conditioner that contains neem and doesn’t contain any artificial ingredients. Apply the shampoo to your hair and massage the scalp with it for a few minutes before washing it with water. Apply the conditioner on wet hair and let it dry naturally! For this method, you don’t have to make an effort yourself yet you will be benefiting from the advantages of neem. This is quite expensive than the other methods but surely worth it!
This method requires the least effort of all. If you don’t want to be a part of all the hassle of making neem masks or oil0, just try eating the neem leaves. They are quite bitter so you better add some honey on top to make it easy for you to eat. Adding neem leaves to your diet every day can also help it to provide all the nutrients to your hair to fight against dandruff. If you don’t feel like eating, you can always drink some neem water!
