Dandruff can ruin a great hairstyle. Not only does it cause slight embarrassment, it totally takes the fun out of whipping your hair. For those suffering from severe dandruff, we recommend that you see a dermatologist to determine if it’s eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis, first. In the meantime, here’s a great serum to use on a daily basis to fight your flaky woes.
Purchase a small bottle with a long pointy nozzle. These bottles are typically used by stylists to do color jobs and you can find them at your local beauty supply store.
3 oz of Refined Peanut Oil – Peanut oil aggressively addresses dry scalp and helps to alleviate many issues with consistent use. It also strengthens and nourishes your hair. Many people with nut allergies can use refined peanut oil because the allergens are no longer present after the refining process. However, check with your doctor before using. Substitute with sesame oil, if necessary.
3 oz of Olive Oil – This oil is nature’s greatest gift. It soothes the scalp immediately.
10 Drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil – This oil is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and gives your scalp a wonderful cooling sensation.
7 Drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil – Citrus oils bring balance back to the scalp and they help to pleasantly fragrance your serum.
5 Drops of Sage Essential Oil – Severe dandruff often results in severe inflammation. Sage works wonders in calming inflamed areas.
Use a little every day and especially just after shampooing. Check your local health food store for these ingredients.
