Turmeric is an Indian spice used since ages. It is an antiseptic and has many other qualities. Whether ingested or applied externally, the benefits of turmeric are plenty.  However, very few of us know that turmeric can be used to keep the dandruff at the bay.


Thick shiny hair is the dream of every girl. But dandruff is one problem which requires adequate treatment. Dandruff is an exaggeration of the scaling process by which the skin renews itself. The problem of dandruff is due to a variety of reasons, for example poor blood circulation in the head, use of harsh shampoos, too oily head, extreme dust and pollution etc.

The problem of dandruff can be treated by applying a mixture of organic turmeric and olive oil on the scalp before taking a shower for 30 minutes. Then rinse the hair with natural shampoo. This will give you the expected result as turmeric has anti-bacterial, ant-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This spice naturally cleanses the scalp and reduces dandruff by stimulating blood circulation in the scalp.

So next time if you are troubled by the dandruff, go to turmeric for the rescue.
