Ginger Hair-Grow Scalp Treatment Formula

This excellent, easy-to-make scalp conditioning formula really gets your hair growing!

It uses ginger, considered one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurveda. With its potent stimulating properties, ginger increases the blood circulation to the scalp which can result in faster-growing hair.

Warming, stimulating, and great for your scalp and hair!

1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon sesame or jojoba oil

1. This formula can be applied either before or after shampooing. If applied after, be sure to rinse extremely well.

2. Combine the ingredients, massage into the scalp, and leave on for at least 30 minutes. (You can leave on overnight to receive the maximum benefit.)

3. Shampoo or rinse out with tepid water.

One of the easiest and best formulas for a dry scalp, is :
Wash your hair first, and leave the cream rinse in, while bathing. Then, it is time to rinse hair, thoroughly.
A 'thick' rinse cream, is enormously more efficient than a lotion.
Generally speaking, it is more expensive, initially, but, a smaller amount is sufficient and it lasts 2 to 3 times longer. Therefore, the price is negligible.

People choose home remedies for treating their hair fall and dandruff. These home remedies help them to overcome hair problems quickly and without wasting so huge amounts in cosmetic products. Ginger, lemon, honey, henna etc are generally used by most of the people to treat their hair loss. Besides this, now days there are so many treatments available in hair treatment clinics for overcoming baldness but these treatments are expensive and leave some side effects.
