Banana and Coconut Oil Hair Mask
First up is a banana and coconut oil hair mask. Bananas are rich in potassium natural oils and carbohydrates which are great for repairing dry brittle and unhealthy hair. Bananas are also rich in biotin which create a fantastic environment for normal healthy hair growth because they are so good at nourishing the scalp there is also some evidence that bananas help to moisturize your scalp and reduce the likelihood of dandruff and we're also adding coconut oil which is one of my firm favorite hair oils it's full of fatty acids and lauric acid and nutrients and vitamins that are great for nourishing and conditioning your hair and keeping your scalp really healthy so it's great if you've got dry brittle hair and dandruff.
So take one medium-sized banana mash it in a bowl add two tablespoons of coconut oil and mix the ingredients properly apply this mixture on your hair and massage your scalp thoroughly focus on applying to the tips of your hair to condition them and ideally leave this mixture for minutes rinse your hair with cold water and a mild shampoo.

Olive Oil and Cumin Seeds
Next up I’m adding olive oil to cumin seeds. Olive oil has lots of antibacterial properties that nourish the scalp they also add shine to your hair because the oil nourishes the cuticle from the outside olive oil can also help to keep your hair and skin really soft olive oil is great for keeping your hair really soft getting rid of split ends nourishing the scalp and helping to get rid of dandruff.
Olive oil is also rich in fatty acids and antioxidants which help to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss for this recipe you need a quarter of a cup of olive oil and a teaspoon of cumin seeds add the cumin seeds to the olive oil and leave the mixture for four to five hours then you strain the mixture and add honey to it. And as you can see I’m applying it all generously to my scalp leave it on for about two minutes and then wash out and then do this for about once a week to notice the results on your hair.
Today if hair loss is something that's happening in your life right now then why not try it really works vitamins! This is a brand that I set up myself five years ago oh I feel really old it was five years ago oh gosh where's the time gone fast forward five years later we've been in Forbes as the best nutrition innovation and .and we've been in shortlist magazine as the best hair regrowth product for men but we are also suitable for women as long as you're not pregnant or breastfeeding
Next up is baking soda now there is a bit of a word of warning here because baking soda can be quite abrasive so it's only really suitable for people with oily hair if you've got oily hair and your scalp is extra oily then this is for you because it helps to clarify your scalp but don't use it too much if you don't have oily hair it can make your hair more dry if you've got dry hair.
I just wanted to let you know baking soda helps you to clean the scalp and get rid of dandruff flakes in a few uses its application helps to remove excess sebum produced by your scalp it leaves your hair clean and fresh by washing off excess oil and grease baking soda is a natural antiseptic and is known to be an effective anti-fungal agent therefore it can successfully deal with fungus which causes dandruff excess oil in the scalp can also lead to dandruff growth using baking soda regulates oil accumulation in the scalp which prevents dandruff growth it also reduces any inflammation or itching in the scalp too.
You will need two to three tablespoons of baking soda to get started wet your hair thoroughly and apply baking soda on the scalp you can leave the baking soda for a few minutes on your scalp and then wash it off with a good quality shampoo if you've got really dry hair then don't forget to use a conditioner just to moisturize and soften up your hair afterwards.
Next up I really wanted to mention probiotics for healthy hair growth regularly drinking probiotics can be a great way of maintaining normal healthy hair growth. This is because each hair is surrounded by nourishing blood vessels and probiotics attack pathogens which are agents of disease and they help to keep your blood healthy and healthy blood means normal healthy hair growth.
Probiotics can also be amazing for helping to fight dandruff probiotic foods like yogurt contain lactobacillus paracasai which can help control dandruff it's been proven by studies and clinical trials that probiotics can play an important role in helping you get rid of dandruff this study conducted in involved subjects suffering from moderate to severe dandruff the participants were given either a probiotic sachet of lactobacillus paracas eye or a placebo which only had sugar medicine in it they were asked to use it for days.
After the end of the trial period participants using probiotics were found to have a significant reduction in dandruff along with a reduction in itchiness and redness of the scalp you should ideally have one cup of your probiotic every day to get the desired results.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Next up is apple cider vinegar apple cider vinegar can help to keep your scalp at a balanced ph this helps to ensure that you don't have harmful bacteria which can cause dandruff or other scalp irritations. It can also add a lot of natural shine to your hair.
Apple cider vinegar can also help to exfoliate the scalp which can help to then promote normal healthy hair growth because the scalp is clear of debris sebum and dirt this exfoliates the scalp and helps to encourage healthy shiny hair.
So I’m going to show you two different ways to use apple cider vinegar in dealing with dandruff the first way is to do a scalp massage using apple cider vinegar take one cup of apple cider vinegar to two cups of water gently massage it into your scalp using a circular motion leave it to work its magic for minutes and then wash it off with a mild shampoo you can do this once or twice every couple of weeks.
Hello guys so as you know as you can see this is not the easiest way of putting apple cider vinegar in your hair so I’m going to show you the way that I do which is the apple cider vinegar rinse which is once you've washed your hair rinse it through with your gorgeous apple cider vinegar I never do this I I prefer massaging my hair with essential oils because massaging it with this and then leaving it on for minutes is like it gets a bit uncomfortable because the vinegar is like going on my face yeah not as good as the second way but I’m leaving it up to you see you in a sec. This can be done once every two weeks and this helps to remove the dirt buildup and maintain the scalp's ph balance thus preventing dandruff growth.
Pepper and Lemon Seeds
Next up is a mixture of pepper and lemon seeds lemon seeds may help to improve blood circulation at the scalp which can encourage normal healthy hair growth so for this you'll need lemon seeds and peppercorn. So put these together in your blender add a little bit of water blend.
So guys to walk you through what I’m doing I’m scooping out the seeds from one large lemon and I’m then squeezing the lemon juice into my blender then I’m adding my black pepper and the lemon seeds blend to make a fine paste and apply all over the scalp especially in areas that you think may be thinning or unhealthy. Allow the mixture to work for about 30 minutes after that wash your hair with a mild sulfate and paraben free shampoo
Next up is neem oil neem oil contains an active ingredient called nimbidine now some earlier research shows that nimburden can help to suppress inflammation which can make neem oil really useful in helping to treat dandruff and other scalp irritations. Neem oil is also a really well known antifungal neem oil is rich in vitamin e fatty acids limonoids triglycerides antioxidants and calcium. It's better to use cold pressed neem oil as the therapeutic properties of neem have not been destroyed. In this process applying neem oil can moisturize and nourish your scalp it removes itchiness and dryness which promotes dandruff you might be surprised to know that neem oil is a much better and safer option for dandruff control than anti-dandruff shampoos which could contain harmful chemicals.
So without much further ado let's get straight into how you can use neem oil for dandruff control. To begin with you should remember that concentrated neem oil can be too strong for direct application onto the scalp so it should be mixed with a carrier oil like olive oil coconut oil yogurt oil especially before applying onto your scalp.
So take two to three drops of neem oil and an equal quantity of coconut oil make sure to use gentle and circular motions for a complete application. I just wanted to tell you how it smells because it actually smells a little bit like um coconut chocolate like bounty and it's really nice. When I first open the neem bottle it smells really nutty and not that nice but mixing it with the carrier oil coconut oil it's so nice.
I thoroughly recommend leave this application for two minutes for it to work on the dandruff and now wash it out thoroughly using a mild shampoo. In order to get the best results use this process two or three times per week a study has also said that neem oil is fantastic for helping to get rid of hair lice.
Oatmeal and water
Next up is oatmeal and water oatmeal is extremely moisturizing it's got lots of b vitamins that help to moisturize and help to repair damaged hair. Oatmeal can also help to add lots of shine to your hair it's also great for helping to get rid of any scalp irritation such as dandruff.
There are a couple of ways of applying oatmeal to your scalp the easiest of them consists of mixing uncooked oatmeal with water to your desired consistency and smooth the paste onto your scalp. If you have difficulties in obtaining a uniform paste then try a second method which is wrap a handful of oats in a muslin cloth and hold it beneath a tap of running water collect the water run off in a jug and then pour that oatmeal water gently over the scalp.
So in both cases it's a good idea to leave the paste or the oatmeal water on for about 10 minutes before rinsing out.
Next up is onion juice onions are rich in sulfur which helps to encourage normal healthy hair growth onion juice is also rich in a phytochemical compound which helps to fight the fungus that can cause dandruff so it really is a lovely all-rounder.
You can apply a peeled onion directly to your scalp which will help in reducing its flakiness and control dandruff onion juice not only prevents dandruff it also stimulates blood circulation in the scalp which leads to strong and nourished hair. So as you can see I’ve got one large onion I’m peeling it be careful not to peel the yellow bit on the outside. Peel the peel but not the yellow bit on the outside chop it up blend it. And then a really important step which I feel that lots of people might miss is to strain it you've got a strain strain strain strain strain because if you don't you could get lots of clumpy bits of like they look like massive lumps of dandruff in your hair. So strain you can strain it a few times because that's a really important part when the onion juice looks like this milky liquid then it's ready to rinse through within your hair. Apply this onion juice directly to your scalp and leave it for one hour to work. Once done you can wash your scalp with a good shampoo.
Coffee Grounds and Coconut Oil
My next hair growth and scalp conditioning treatment are coffee grounds and coconut oil. For this you'll need to blend one tablespoon of coconut oil with two tablespoons of coffee grounds. Coffee is a fantastic stimulant and it's known to help increase circulation.
Coffee grounds and coconut oil are a great exfoliant scrub for your scalp they're helping to slow away dead skin cells sebum product buildup and coffee is fantastic for helping to increase circulation at the scalp because healthy circulation means all those fantastic vitamins and nutrients are making the way their way all the way up to your scalp it's fantastic.
And as you know coconut oil is rich in fatty acids nutrients vitamins and minerals that are great for adding moisture to your hair and helping to encourage healthy hair growth.
Coconut Oil and Olive Oil
Next up is a coconut oil and olive oil hair mask both olive oil and coconut oil are fantastic moisturizers for your hair follicles. These make your hair stronger and smoother they're less likely to be brittle and break and you're helping to reduce split ends. So for this recipe you need a cup of coconut oil and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil mix them up and apply all over your hair from root to tip. It's also really nice to massage your scalp in circular motions to help encourage the healthy hair growth and healthy circulation and also it feels really relaxing if you can leave it overnight or if you can leave it for about half an hour to an hour. Pop a shower cap on go about your business in your house. Wash your hair out with a sulfate and paraben free shampoo and enjoy your silky soft hair.
Garlic has antibacterial properties that can kill germs which cause damage to your scalp. Using garlic also cleanses the hair follicles strengthens them and prevents them from clogging and this all reduces hair loss.
Garlic is rich in vitamin b and c manganese and selenium which can all promote healthy hair growth this study found evidence that participants with alopecia areata experienced improved hair growth after applying garlic gel to the bald spots on their scalp. In order to get started just take a few cloves of garlic blend into a paste using your kitchen blender.
Apply the garlic paste directly to your scalp and leave for a couple of hours rinse off with a mild shampoo and you'll start to notice a reduction in hair loss.
