Read on to find out how to create this simple DIY recipe
What You Need:
Coconut Oil – 2-3 tablespoons
Warm the coconut oil in a small cup or bowl in about 10 second increments in the microwave if you don’t want to use the double boiler method.
Make sure the oil is not too hot for you to handle, or too hot for your scalp.
Separate your hair out into sections to make it easy for you to apply. Dip your fingertips into the oil and massage into your scalp gently. Massaging your scalp helps promote blood circulation which is important for your scalp and hair!
Do this until your entire scalp is coated. You can put the rest on your hair; Do this in moderation as it is hard to wash out.
Wash/condition/dry your hair as usual. It may take a few treatments before dandruff is gone, but chances are, you’ll notice results sooner than later.
