Body & Soul: No-Dandruff Rinse

| October/November 2010

Dandruff is a condition of the scalp where the skin becomes very dry and flaky. This hair rinse will help deep-cleanse your scalp and rid it of any dead skin cells. The vinegar in the rinse can be drying to hair. Avoid drying out your hair in the process of treating your scalp by following with a rich conditioner. 

• 1/2 cup red wine or apple cider vinegar
• 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves (or 1 tablespoon dried)
• 1 cup boiling water

1. Place vinegar and mint leaves in a bowl and pour the boiling water over them. Let the mixture cool completely and then strain. 

2. To use: Apply the solution to the scalp as a final rinse after shampooing. Rinse well with cool water.
