4 Henna Hair Packs To Cure Dandruff August 6, 2015

Dandruff is a common scalp condition that is accompanied with dryness and itchiness. Tiny, loose white flakes form on the scalp that cause itching. If you have dry dandruff, then these flakes tend to fall on the back and shoulders when you comb your hair. The oily flakes tend to stick and build up on the scalp. While the causes of dandruff are many that range from change in weather, hormonal changes, not rinsing the hair properly post a wash or tying up wet hair, it is important to keep the dandruff at bay to have healthy and voluminous hair.

Henna For Dandruff Treatment

Henna has been widely used for many years for its beneficial properties. It has been used as a natural color and for deep conditioning treatment for hair. It can also be used to get rid of the stubborn dandruff. I’ve listed a few packs that can help you control, if not eliminate the occurrence of dandruff. Henna hair packs should be applied at least once a fortnight. Since henna can dry out your hair, avoid using it too frequently. And just a note, the henna hair packs treatment for dandruff will not work on oiled hair.

Pack 1: Henna, Lemon & Yogurt

What you need

  • 4 tablespoons of fine henna powder
  • Juice of a lime
  • Yogurt (as per the consistency you prefer)

Mix the henna powder with the juice of a lime and add curd to it. Mix well to avoid lumps. Make a smooth paste that does not drip. Apply this henna paste on the hair from roots to the tips. Keep the pack on for 30 minutes and wash off with a mild SLS free shampoo. If you have dry hair, you may need to follow it up with a conditioner.

What you need

  • 250 ml of mustard oil
  • Two handfuls of fresh henna leaves
  • A teaspoon of fenugreek seeds
  • A dry jar/container

This is one of the most effective oils that can control the dandruff. I remember my grandmother making this and all the cousins applying the hair pack on a lazy Sunday. Pour the oil in a wok and get it to the smoking point. Switch of the gas. Add the henna leaves and the fenugreek seeds when the oil cools down just a little bit. The trick is to let the henna leaves soak in the oil till it changes its colour. Let the oil cool down and leave it overnight in wok. Filter it the next day into an air tight container or a bottle. Use this oil for the hair massages. Leave it on for at least an hour before you shampoo. Wash your hair with a mild SLS free shampoo and follow up with a mild conditioner.
