Coconut oil is one of the best and cheapest remedies for dandruff control. It is rich in lauric acid which can combat fungal infections known to cause Malassezia, which can reduce the occurrence and growth of dandruff.
Coconut oil also has excellent moisturizing properties, which can treat dandruff.
Astudy conducted on children revealed that coconut oil was found to be more effective than mineral oil in controlling eczema. The oil penetrated the epidermis-top layer of the skin- and prevented further dryness which could have led to growth of dandruff flakes. Anotherstudy highlighted that cultured coconut extract lowered inflammatory markers in human skin samples.
Take 2 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil and massage it gently on your scalp. Apply in generous quantity and use circular motions for best scalp coverage.
You should leave it on for at least 1 hour and then wash it off using a mild shampoo. Repeat this process at least twice a week to see the results. You will observe significant reduction in dandruff by using coconut oil.
COFFEE & YOGHURT MASK! You’ll only need three things which are:
Take two tablespoons of coffee powder to a clean bowl.
Add two tablespoons of coconut powder.
Mix thoroughly until you get a gorgeous thick paste.
Three tablespoons of natural yoghurt to the mixture.
Mix, mix, mix, into a lovely thick paste.
So to apply this hair mask, get some in your hand and smooth from root to tip, all over.
And then I get my cute shower cap I leave it for one hour.
Onion Juice and Coconut Oil for Healthy Hair Growth:
If you’re using a huge yellow onion, you can store it in the freezer in an ice tray, but to be honest it’s better to make it up freshly each time and the onion loses it’s potency.
I’m chopping up my medium yellow onion. Dont’ peel off the skin, just under the outbit - because this is really rich with lots of nutrients and antioxidants
Then I’m going to blend it.
Then strain it with a cheese cloth or muslin, or strainer.
PAUSE! WARNING TIME - WARNING TIME!
Warning Number 2:
Voiceover: Straining out the juice is really, really important, do not skip this step and apply the pulp straight to your hair, do not do this!
If you’ve got curly hair or afro hair, it will get stuck in your curls and will look like massive flakes of dandruff. Don’t skip the squeezing step!
Next I add a couple of tea spoons of coconut oil.
I’m adding in a few drops of lavender oil:
This 2016 study found that lavender oil applied to mice made them grow more hair. Their hair also grew thicker and faster than normal.
Lavender oil, also smells absolutely beautiful
- so it helps to mask the strong onion smell
If you’ve got an itchy scalp or dandruff, lavender oil helps to clear this thanks to its antifungal properties.
I’m adding lemon oil - it cleanses and balances the PH of the scalp.
Lemon also helps stimulate circulation in the scalp for increased hair growth.
I’m also adding in a couple of teaspoons of coconut oil.
The vitamins and fatty acids in coconut oil help to nourish your scalp and penetrates the cuticle of the hair.
I’m massaging my hair all over the scalp.
You can leave it in for about 30minutes to an hour and shampoo out as normal.
Feel free to use a shower cap too.
Remember to use a sulphate and paraben free shampoo. I use Palmers coconut oil shampoo. I feel like I mention them in every single video - I’m not sponsored by them by the way- I just love it - and I hope they see this and give me a free bottle of shampoo!
To boost circulation at the scalp, I know a lot people also do a home work out, while they’re waiting!
You can also leave the onion juice in overnight if you don’t think you’ll be too uncomfortable or smelly.
Now I wanna mention that even though I love adding my essential oils to my onion juice, they don’t completely mask or get rid of the smell, you can tell that the essential oils are really trying to work hard, but the onion juice smell is working harder, so just so if you’re okay with the smell, or you’re just not going to be seeing anyone important that day, then its okay.
But cos I’m often in meetings, to make sure my hair doesn’t smell of onions, I’ll use a leave in conditioner after washing my hair -
This one smells really really nice, (again not sponsored!)
You could completely cover your hair in coconut oil overnight - shampoo and rinse out.
And then I rinse it out the next day and don’t forget to use a heat protective spray -
