    Remedies for dandruff cure:

    1. About 10-15 minutes before you wash your hair, rub a lot of aloe vera gel into your scalp. Leave it on for 10 minutes and shampoo your hair like you do regularly. If you do this everyday the dandruff will stay away.
    2. Use lime juice to wash hair.
    3. Soak 2 tablespoons fenugreek seeds in water overnight. In the morning grind into a fine paste. Apply all over scalp and leave for ½ an hour. Wash with mild shampoo.
    4. Mix the olive oil with the almond oil. Leave it on about 5 min.s after it starts to burn. Rinse well to clear dandruff.
    5. Massage your hair with warm coconut oil and apply the juice of 2 lemons, steam your hair and leave the oil on for about 2 hours. Shampoo with a mild shampoo. Repeat 2-3 times a week.
    6. Boil a handful of neem leaves in 4 teacups of water. After cooling and filtering, use for rinsing hair.

    For headache:


    1. Dip a small towel in cold water, rinse, and apply to forehead. Once the towel gets warm, flip it to the other side, or dip it into cold water again.
    2. Lying down, in a dark room, maybe getting a 1/2 hour of sleep, will always make you feel better.
    3. A decoction of half a teaspoon mustard seeds powder and three teaspoons water, if instilled in the nostrils, redresses migraine.
    4. The juice of ripe grapes is an effective home remedy for a migraine.
    5. For a sinus headache, eat a jalapeno pepper as soon as possible. Within minutes your sinuses will start to drain and the sinus headache will subside.
    6. A peppermint steam inhalation provides quick relief for sinus headaches. Peppermint acts as a decongestant, and the combination of warm steam and the essential oil is doubly effective for opening up the sinuses.
    7. Mix 1 teaspoon finely ground cinnamon (called dalchini in India) in 1 teaspoon water and apply on the forehead. It is very effective in headache due to exposure to cold air.
    8. Make a paste from dry ginger with a little water or milk, apply to the forehead for sinus relief.
    9. Grind 10-15 Basil leaves with 4 cloves and 1 teaspoon dried ginger into a paste and apply to forehead for sinus cure.
    10. For a painful sinus headache, try a hot footbath along with a cold compress on the forehead

    Remedies for bleeding gums:

    1. With a pinch of salt soaked in a glass of lukewarm water, you now create a homemade saline solution. Use this to rinse in the morning and in the evening. This will help increase circulation in your gums and reduce the swelling.
    2. No matter how well and how often you brush your teeth, you can`t reach the areas between your teeth and below the gums. Make the habit of flossing. Floss comes in very handy. Keep one in your bag or at your office. After meal, floss it!
