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.

WHAT YOU NEED

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

WHAT TO DO

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.

I would like to restore my previous luxuriant head of hair but do not have much hope will have to try this, I do massage my head most nights in washing as it is a bit dusty here.

I so admire vegans and am setting my mind to take the step up from veggie myself.

No to sriracha on ice cream and doughnuts! It is good on eggs and omeletes also though in addition …

Is erthyritol safe??

Nature gave us fruit to make us healthy and beautiful :)
