One of the most common hair problems faced by people is that of dandruff, which also leads to the dry and itchy scalp. In addition to affecting the health of your hair and scalp, having dandruff can prove to be embarrassing and even annoying. The fear of snowy white dandruff flakes showing up on your shoulders prevents you from wearing dark clothes. You are even forced to limit your choice of hairstyles to just a couple of options. However, to ensure effective and lasting relief from the problem it is advisable to use the most appropriate hair mask for dandruff after first understanding why and how it is caused.
Understanding The Causes Of Dandruff
It is a common belief that one of the oily scalps is one of the most common causes of dandruff. This is somewhat true as dandruff is essentially a condition that affects the scalp and is caused by a fungus named Malassezia. This fungus is known to feed on sebum, which is the oily matter secreted by the sebaceous glands present in the scalp. The dead skin cells which are a natural by-product of the skin regeneration process also form the diet of this fungus. You might be surprised to learn that Malassezia is a normal part of the scalp and becomes problematic only when it starts feeding on sebum. In addition, the fungus tends to thrive in moist conditions, which is why dandruff becomes more apparent during summer and monsoon seasons. In order to prevent the problem from turning into a major hair health issue, it is advisable to seek timely guidance about dandruff treatment from professional experts.
Most Effective Hair Mask For Dandruff
Amongst the various tried and tested methods of treatment, applying a hair mask for dandruff is considered to be most effective. Given below are the brief details of the different types of hair masks that you can create with various natural products that are quite easy to obtain.
Coconut Oil Hair Mask
Being a rich source of anti-fungal compounds, coconut is the best option for getting rid of dandruff in an effective manner. The oil is easily absorbed into the scalp and helps to eliminate the irritation causing microbes while also enhancing the health of the scalp. To create a hair mask for dandruff with coconut oil, you need to take enough oil to cover your scalp. Heat the oil until it is slightly warm before gently massaging it onto your scalp with your fingertips. Continue to massage for 10-15 minutes, covering the entire scalp. Now let the oil rest for at least 30 minutes before washing your hair with warm water and mild shampoo. Repeat the process at least once every week to gain effective relief from dandruff.
Aloe Vera Hair Mask
Aloe vera is an extremely versatile plant known for offering numerous health and beauty benefits. It helps to moisturize and soothe the dry scalp and kill dandruff-causing fungus. Using the homemade hair mask for dandruff with aloe vera can provide lasting relief from the problem. The mask can be created easily by mixing 4 tablespoons of pure aloe vera gel with 2-3 drops of eucalyptus essential oil. Start applying the mixture to the scalp moving from the roots down to the hair tips. Having entirely covered the scalp and the hair with the mixture, you should wait for 30 – 60 minutes before rinsing the hair with cool or lukewarm water. Apply this mask 2-3 times a week to gain visible relief from the problem of dandruff.
Mayonnaise Hair Mask
The vinegar present in mayonnaise makes it a great natural remedy for maintaining scalp health and killing the dandruff-causing fungus. It is also extremely beneficial for moisturizing the scalp and keeping the hair glowing with health. Making a mayonnaise hair mask for dandruff is quite simple. You need to take the half cup of sour curd with 2 tablespoons each of mayonnaise and aloe vera gel and mix them to get a smooth consistency. Now apply this mixture to the scalp working your way from the roots to the hair tips covering the entire scalp and hair. Leave the mixture on for at least an hour before washing it off with lukewarm water and a mild shampoo. Forgetting the best results, apply the mask at least 1-2 times a week.
Castor Oil Hair Mask
Castor oil is rich in compounds having antimicrobial and antifungal properties which help in eliminating the dandruff-causing fungus. It also helps to keep the hair and scalp moisturized to fight off dryness which can lead to dandruff. To use castor oil for treating dandruff, you should combine 1 tablespoon of castor oil with 1 tablespoon of almond oil and heat the mixture till it is mildly warm. Now add 2-3 drops of rosemary oil to this mixture before applying it to the entire scalp and hair. Leave the oil mixture on overnight and wash your hair in the morning with warm water and a mid-shampoo. Following this routine thrice a week will help you to gain effective relief from dandruff.
