Ginger Scalp Tonic for Dandruff, Balding, and More

Ginger Scalp Tonic for Dandruff, Balding, and More

Egyptian researchers say that this herbal blend helps treat dandruff, seborrhea, and maybe even balding.

Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. Besides using this hair rinse designed by master herbalist James A. Duke, Ph.d., it is important to also give yourself a nightly scalp massage, improving the circulation through your scalp.


2 gingeroots, grated
3 tablespoons sesame oil
Dash of lemon juice


Juice the ingredients. Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of the juice with the sesame oil and lemon juice.

Massage the blend into your scalp, leaving it on for 15 to 30 minutes before rinsing. Repeat three times a week. Refrigerate leftover formula between uses.
