Ginger juice can be added to face and hair masks to fight skin and scalp infections due to its anti-bacterial or anti-microbial abilities. It can also restore health to your scalp and may even help in dealing with itchy scalp and dandruff. Here’s how to use it to regain a healthy and happy skin on your scalp.

  • Take a fresh root of the spice and slice it into pieces using a sharp knife or grate it.
  • Add sliced or grated ginger to some water and set it boil on a low flame. Slowly the colour of the water will start to change and after a few minutes it will turn slightly muddy or translucent yellow.
  • Take the water off the flame and filter it out using a fine sieve.
  • Press the residual collected over the sieve to drain out the maximum juice into the container.
  • Allow the water to cool down. You can either pour this juice into a tiny spray bottle and spray it onto your scalp directly or mix it with an oil carrier and then apply the oil to your scalp. Rinse it off with a gentle anti-dandruff shampoo after half an hour.

Besides this hair mask, regular oiling and massage is also important to treat dandruff.
