    According to Ayurveda Lemon juice which is rich in Vitamin C prevents/eliminates dandruff, increases blood circulation thereby reducing hair fall and protects hair from UV rays when applied directly to the scalp or used in other hair packs.I have tried this and it worked.One needs to alter the amount of juice used according to their need.For example, one would need to use more of lemon juice for oily scalp and less for those with dry scalp conditions. Another tried and tested remedy is to beat lemon juice and coconut oil together in the ratio of 1:4 till it turns white and use as a hair pack to eliminate dandruff and to promote thick hair growth.This can also be used as an overnight hair pack.

    mayonnaise is lemon juice and cooking oil, with an emulsion stabilizer: soy milk for Vegans, and egg yolk for non-vegans. Thick, and creamy stuff that does not separate into two layers can be made using any kitchen blender. There are other emulsion stabilizers in recipes ; here is an ingenious one: How to Make Mayonnaise without Eggs

    Mix some mayo with salt and paprika, ( and mustard , if you like some yellow), and eat with french fries, while using the unsalted, unspiced mayo on the scalp and soaking.

    Quiz:
    1. why Belgians serve fries with mayonnaise, whereas Americans serve with ketchup and mustard?
    2. Are ketchup and mustard any good against dandruff?

    Yes unsalted and unspiced Mayo is really good hair.Here are a few recipes with Mayo.

    Mayonnaise shampoo (conditioning shampoos for dry hair)

    Mix 1 spoon mayonnaise sauce,1 spoon water,1 spoon wheat flour, 1 spoon mild shampoo, 1 spoon lime juice in a bowl.Wet hair, apply this mixture to scalp, leave for 3-10 mins and wash.

    Mayonnaise split end and frizzy hair treatment

    Work sufficient amount of mayonnaise according to your hair length and density (1/2 tsp is enough for slightly longer than shoulder length hair),with special attention to the ends and minimal attention to the scalp.Leave the mayonnaise on for 30 mins.Using too much will result in your hair becoming quite oily,needing several shampoos and rinses to get back to normal.

    Why Belgians serve fries with mayonnaise, whereas Americans serve with ketchup and mustard? Probably a cultural difference.Similarly Americans call finger chips as fries while Australians call them as chips.

    Ketchup is made with tomato,sugar,corn syrup,salt,spices and food based preservatives.I am pretty positive that is does no good for our body and hair unlike fresh tomato pulp.Apply tomato pulp to the scalp and take head bath after 30 mins with a mild shampoo to eliminate dandruff.This also acts as a natural hair conditioner.

    Brassica campestris/field mustard i.e black mustard (kali sarson)- fresh paste of seeds is applied on the scalp to remove dandruff.This is a popular remedy used by a tribal community in India.Mustard oil, when consumed or applied topically to skin and hair have many proven health benefits.It contains protein and omega-3 fatty acids that helps in promoting hair growth.

    Good diet helps with dandruff, and atleast 2 times/ week shampooing in teenagers/ youths

    Lemon juice, designated combs, green veggies- like broccoli in diet, triphala capsules few times/ month, cleaning pillow covers in hot water with bleach, washing hats etc, minimizing junk food, few drops of tea tree oil in shampoo and body wash (not enough to smell like tea tree)- all this should help.

    Here is my new findings to prevent Hair Fall in Chennai , as soon as you wake up in the morning every day , do little coconut oil massage on the area when you feel more loss or grey , it works better even on grey area .
    while doing massage every day , you improve blood circulation and thus the cells gets regenerated and you will soon get gorgeous Hair soon.
