Treatment and Remedy*
Follow a healthy diet that includes flax seed oil; daily scalp massage increases blood circulation; weekly oil treatment to scalp, washing off in shower after 10-15 minutes will help avoid excessive drying out of skin; frequent mild shampoos that include any or all of the following Ayurvedic herbs:
Shikakai: A pod that’s considered a superior cleanser for "lustrous long hair" and has been reported as "promoting hair growth and preventing dandruff". Because of these benefits, this pod was named "Shikakai" which translated as, "fruit for hair".
Soapnut: Indian name Reetha fruit is also called Soapnut, as it contains natural soap. Beside excellent cleansing properties, it is known to keep hair and skin soft.
Amla: A wonderful cleansing agent for both the skin and hair. It imparts luster to hair and protects from dandruff, also helps prevent premature graying. Amla stimulates growth of hair on the scalp, and strengthens the hair roots.
Fenugreek: Seeds contain essential oil that contains 40 different valuable compounds. People used to soak fenugreek seeds overnight, and in the morning grind them into fine paste and apply them to the scalp for half hour for scalp treatment and removal of dandruff. The hair was then washed with Soapnut solution. The same paste was applied on the face at night before going to bed and then washed with warm water in the morning. This was known to prevent one from getting pimples, dryness and early appearance of wrinkles. It improved complexion and make one look younger.

* If the scaling from dandruff is greasy and yellow and does not respond to shampooing, etc. then it may be time to call your doctor; you may have seborrhea dermatitis and need more aggressive treatment.
Thanks so much for sending me the second pack of soft black henna. I tried a patch of hair with it and it did work much better than the first batch that I received. The black color had a tint of blue in it and I was concerned that it would color my hair blue instead of darkening my existing red. So I tried the dark brown that I had previously used again. This time I applied it to damp hair, covered my head with a plastic cap and applied heat. The color difference was incredible! My dark hair got darker but my white covered with a much darker, richer red color. I am thrilled with the results and will continue to experiment with the color to get the red a bit more brown.
My hair feels so soft and truly looks wonderful! I was wondering how long the color lasts? I can't thank you enough for your patience with me. I was getting discouraged and beginning to give up. I have searched for about 8 years for a natural product that works and didn't think one existed. You have no idea how excited I am to have found your product.
Thanks so very much!
Sincerely, Cindy A.
