People do have a fancy for colouring hair these days and they look really stylish on people. But when one colours their hair they also need to maintain it properly.
Also if the coloured hair has dandruff then one has to be even more careful. This is because; one cannot use anything and everything on coloured hair because there is a fear of discolouration. There are special dandruff shampoos for coloured hair which one can use if they are prescribed by the doctor. It is a good idea to not go for the over the counter medicated shampoos because you never know which shampoo will suit your coloured hair and at the same time will solve the purpose.
There are also some brilliant home remedies which one can try in order to remove dandruff issues. Here are some options.
Curd and Lemon
One can take a few table spoons of sour yogurt or curd and mix it with some freshly squeezed lemon juice and then massage it well on the scalp. Keep it there for at least an hour and do not forget to cover it with a shower cap so that it does not drip everywhere. Then wash it off well with a mild shampoo. One can do it at least twice a week to get better results.
Olive oil treatment
Hot oil massage is the best thing when one is suffering from dry scalp and dandruff problems. One needs to heat a few spoons of olive oil and castor oil together and massage it well on the scalp. Keep it there for an hour and then wash it off with a mild shampoo. One can also keep the oil overnight if they feel like doing so. This not only nourishes the hair but castor oil also prevents hair fall.
