Once in awhile my scalp becomes dry and itchy. Sometimes it can become flaky with dead skin too, which I think is embarrassing. Anytime I see dandruff I hurry to my kitchen to create a batch of my lemon ginger dandruff shampoo to help remove the dead flaky skin from my hair and to help condition the top of my head so the problem goes away and does not occur again.
Natural Nourishing Ingredients Needed
To create the dandruff shampoo I use an organic unscented moisturizing shampoo, ginger oil, lemon oil, lemon juice and honey. You need the shampoo to cleanse product build up from the hair and you need ginger oil to help relieve any type of inflammation on the scalp. Ginger is also helpful for stimulating hair growth and for helping blood flow to the scalp so it can heal properly and be healthy. Lemon oil and juice have a natural acid in them that help gently remove the dead flaky skin from the scalp. Honey is useful in this remedy because it helps moisturize and nourish the scalp and the hair very well.
Creating the Product
My favorite way to create this remedy is by grabbing a large glass-measuring cup with a spout and pouring two cups of the shampoo into it along with ten drops of ginger oil, ten drops of lemon oil, an a half cup of lemon juice and one cup of honey. Then, I combine these ingredients together until I get a golden lemony-spiced cleanser for removing dandruff from the scalp and hair. After, I pour the product into a squeezable bottle and place it in the shower for easy use for whenever I need to wash my hair with a special treatment.
Using the Shampoo
The best way I find to use the handmade product for cleansing my beautiful hair is by rinsing my head down with plenty of warm water for a good two minutes. Then, I squeeze a tablespoon of the shampoo into my hands and lather it into my hair well. The scalp and hair product does lather up very well and has a warm citrus scent to it that is uplifting and refreshing. Once my head is all lathered up well I rinse the entire product out and condition my hair with a good organic conditioner to help further nourish the scalp to help prevent future dandruff outbreaks. Then, I rinse my head off again with cool water and dry it off with a warm towel. After, I allow my hair to air dry and it looks and feels a lot better.
To help keep my head of hair healthy and flake free I use this handmade hair care product twice per week. However, those of you who are allergic to any of the ingredients should not use this product. Otherwise, I say it is my favorite one to use for ridding dandruff away naturally and it works well for me. I hope those of you who make and use it have the same results. If not, I hope you find something else that works better for you.
