3 Ways To Use Ginger For Maintaining Hair Health
Ginger for hair re-growth:
- Mix one tablespoon of ginger paste with a carrier oil that you like – coconut, almond, olive oil etc.
- Now spread the mixture on your hair and scalp like you would a hair mask, and massage as long as you can to improve blood circulation.
- Leave it on for thirty minutes and rinse with your Pantene Pro-V Lively Clean Shampoo.
Ginger for dandruff:
- You’re going to need two tablespoons of grated ginger, one tablespoon of sesame oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice.
- Mix well and use as a hair mask.
- Leave it on for thirty minutes and rinse off with shampoo.
- Use twice a week to see results.
Ginger for hair loss and general hair maintenance:
This is particularly useful if you’re super lazy.
- All you need to do is grate ginger and mix it with enough water till you reach a comfortable consistency.
- Section your hair and spread it on your hair and scalp and let it sit for about an hour.
- Do this often so your scalp gets to absorb the goodness that ginger comes loaded with.
- You should see a visible difference in hair loss in about six to eight weeks of regular use.
- But even if hair loss isn’t an issue, this is a great way to care for your hair and prevent any breakage, dryness or the barrage of other curses that might inflict it otherwise.
