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.
