Snow certainly looks good on mountains but definitely not on your shoulder or dress. Getting rid of these white scaly flakes through home remedies is a far healthier option than opting for those strong chemical based shampoos and hair packs.

Peep in your kitchen and churn out sure shot recipe to say good bye to this unwanted and uncalled for “snowfall”.

Lemon juice and garlic: Take lemon juice and crushed garlic in equal proportions. Make small hair partings and apply with cotton. Leave it for 30 minutes. Then wash off. 

Tea tree oil: Apply it directly to scalp. Leave it overnight and wash with a mild shampoo next morning.

Reetha or soap nut: Grind reetha to powder form and make a paste. Apply it like a mask on scalp and let it remain like that for two hours. Wash hair and brush off extra reetha powder.

Gram flour and curd: Make a thick paste of gram flour (besan or chickpea flour) and sour curd. Apply all over scalp. You can mix a table spoon of lemon juice to refrain from the oiliness of curd in hair.

Fenugreek: Soak fenugreek (methi dana) for overnight and grind to a paste in the morning. Mix half a cup of olive oil in it. Apply this on scalp. Wash off with lukewarm water.

Apple cidar vineger: Vinegar being acidic in nature and pH, kills fungus and bacteria growing in the scalp. Mix it in 1:3 ratios with water; water being the greater part. This mixture can be applied at the beginning of bath and can be rinsed off by the end.

A wonder hair conditioner: It is an all purpose hair conditioner but can be used specifically to treat dandruff. Take one egg, half a cup of curd, one table spoon of henna powder, one tablespoon of white vinegar, one tablespoon of honey, and one tablespoon neem oil (or any other oil). Mix well and apply all over the scalp and hair. Leave it for 45 minutes to one hour. Wash off to find super lustrous and dandruff free hair.
