You’ve probably heard of the amazing hair health benefits that come with using aloe vera as a shampoo. Aloe naturally has a ton of nutrients and vitamins that are ideal to keep your hair healthy and looking great. They also have antioxidants that keep your hair growing strong as an added bonus.
In addition to looking good, making your own solution can help you take care of your dandruff problem, cheaper than you could possibly imagine.
First, you’re going to need a few ingredients to help make your DIY anti-dandruff shampoo. Start by gathering aloe vera gel, honey, and plain Greek yogurt to make this awesome little project!
Aloe Vera for Dandruff Ingredients
The solution will consist of the following:
- 2 teaspoons aloe vera gel.
- 2 teaspoons of the yogurt.
- 2 teaspoons of honey.
The cost of this mixture is extremely cheap, especially if you decide to grow your own aloe vera.
You’ll want to mix two parts of the aloe with equal parts honey and yogurt. Take a whisk and vigorously stir like your life depended on it! You’re looking for a perfect “paste-like” consistency by the time you finish mixing. Keep mixing until you get that texture.
You will need to apply the solution to your scalp at least once a day for the next few weeks. All you need to do it apply the mix to your finger tips and gently massage it into your scalp in generous amounts.
After about an hour of letting the solution settle into your scalp, rinse it out with warm water. We advise taking a shower to wash the mixture completely out of your hair.
The aloe in the solution acts to kill a lot of the microbes on your scape that cause dandruff. It has a lot of nutrients that can help strengthen your hair follicles.
You should start to notice results after about two weeks of application. You might also be surprised at the texture and look of your hair too.
