Using Salt for Hair
Oily hair is an outcome of excessively active sebaceous glands on the scalp, which produce too much oil. Luckily, you can solve this annoying issue by using salt. All you need to do is add 2 or 3 tablespoons in the shampoo you usually use and wash your hair with it. You will notice the results even after the first few treatments. Your hair will be healthy without any excess of oil.
Dandruff is actually the layer formed on the scalp from small pieces of dead skin cells. Salt stimulates circulation that is very important for a healthy scalp and eliminates the existing dandruff flakes. It also protects the scalp from fungal growth. Just divide your hair into sections, sprinkle 1 or 2 teaspoons of salt on your scalp and massage with wet fingers for around 10 minutes. Then wash as usual.
