by Dr. Savitha Suri Bookmark and Share


Dandruff is an embarrassing condition. Dandruff causes hair loss, itchy scalp and ugly flaking of scalp skin. These flakes when fall on body skin can irritate skin to cause boils or eruptions. Let us know what causes dandruff.
 
In a normal scalp skin the new cells of scalp skin push the older ones to the surface of scalp. The dead and old cells are shed almost in an invisible way. But in few conditions like dry skin, irritated oily skin, inappropriate shampooing, psoriasis, Eczema, sensitivity to hair products, fungus etc , the process of replacing dead skin becomes unusually rapid and the dead cells are shed in form of dry flakes.  These flakes of dead skin are known as dandruff.
 
According to text books of ayurveda dandruff is caused due to vitiation of kapha and vayu. Vitiated kapha and vayu make the scalp skin dry. Vitiated kapha causes itching of scalp. Thus dried scalp skin comes out in flakes.
 
Ayurveda acharyas suggest very easy ayurveda remedies for dandruff. The herb which helps in controlling dandruff is neem. Neem is known as “Nimba” in ayurveda . Neem due to its anti microbial properties helps to control dandruff effectively.

Here is an effective ayurvedic home remedy for dandruff

Collect two fists full of fresh neem leaves. Soak it in a cup of hot water. Leave it overnight. Next day blend this in mixer and apply it to scalp. Leave this for 20 minutes; wash it off with luke warm water. Repeat this twice in a week. This helps to control dandruff. This ayurvedic remedy helps to reduce dandruff, hair loss and increase the shine of hair.
