Home Remedies for Hair Fall Control / Dandruff / Dry Scalp
Is your scalp flaky, itchy, and/or dry?
Do you face problems with eczema, fungi, or bacteria?
Do you experience regular hair fall and thinning of hair?
Do you fear wearing dark clothes to avoid the embarrassment of showing up with dandruff around your shoulders?
Do you have a perpetual acne breakout on your forehead?
If so, it is likely your scalp and hair are too alkaline.
Hair’s natural pH is between 4.5-5.0. This goes to say that our hair is slightly acidic in nature. This natural acidity prevents bacteria & fungi from growing on the scalp. We normally face hair fall, sebum build-up, dryness on the scalp/flaky scalp when our hair does not maintain a healthy pH balance.
This can be owing to diet imbalance, inadequate sleep, poor consumption of water, environmental stress, chemically-laden hair treatments, hormonal issues, or overexposure to pollution.
While following a protein-rich well-balanced diet is the very first step to all self-care, paying attention to the cosmetics we use daily may also be useful.
In case you are using a product that has a high pH above 7, then it is stripping away your naturally acidic sebum that fights bacteria. To restore your Hair’s pH balance,
- Use a nourishing Massage Oil Blend, and massage your hair weekly, leaving the oil in your hair for at least an hour or leaving it overnight, washing it with shampoo the next day.
- Make sure to choose mild shampoos that are pH-balanced and sulfate free yet that lather adequately.
- Always use a moisturizing conditioner to keep your hair tangle free.
- Additionally, you may use Hair Masks / Serums if your hair needs extra attention.
Essential Oils are a perfectly natural home remedy to restore your hair’s pH Balance apart from nourishing your hair from root to length, making it strong, lustrous, and bouncy.
The best way to use essential oils in your daily hair care routine is by infusing them in your Hair Massage Oil Blend. The Oil blends will ensure your hair gets a protein-rich complete food and the addition of the essential oils give your hair the necessary protective scaffold that makes all the difference.
Furthermore, you may infuse an essential oil in your shampoo/hair conditioner.
Your hair mask and serum will become more potent with the addition of a few drops of essential oil.
The most effective way to use essential oil is to not exceed 2% of your product consumption. Therefore, if you have a 25-gram bottle of hair serum, you may add 0.5 grams of your choice of Essential oil.
Always use one essential oil when using in very small quantities, however, while making a hair oil blend in 100 grams, you may use a combination of four essential oils, each to the dosage of 0.5 grams.
Similarly, add up to 2% of essential oil blend to your hair conditioner/hair mask.
