Neem May Help
by: Birgit

Hi Sarfaraz,

I don't know what causes your dandruff, itching and hair loss, so I can not promise that neem oil will fix it, but I think it will help.

It certainly will not do harm.

Don't use neem oil pure. Dilute it 1 in 10 in a carrier oil, for example olive or jojoba or almond. You can use any oil that would also be good for hair and skin.

Then use that oil with neem just as you would use any other hair oil. Massage it into your hair and scalp. Leave it in for a few hours or overnight, and then wash it out.

I have to warn you that the neem smell will remain in the hair for a while.

I Used Pure Neem Oil On My Scalp
by: Anonymous

I put Pure Neem Oil on my scalp last nigh, my head was very itchy and had a lot of dandruff, I will post another comment in a few days to tell how it has worked or not.

I massaged the oil in my scalp and left it on for 5 minutes, then normal shampoo, rinse and blow dried my hair. I feel clean, today I have no dandruff, I will have to check in the week to see if it really worked to let you know. It does smell strong but if it's worth it, I will do it again.

Pure Neem Oil on My Scalp

Hi, I'm back after 5 days. I still have dandruff but it did improve. I wash my hair once a week becase it is very dry, maybe washing it twice a week will eliminate the problem completely. Thanks for the tip.

Neem oil Seems to Work
by: Anonymous

I applied neem mixed with coconut oil to hair and scalp and left it for couple of hours. Then 20 mins before shampooing, I applied eggs to hair and scalp and then shampooed. I did this routine 2 times in the past 5 days and I am noticing results.

My hair really looks vibrant and dandruff symptoms are reducing. I spent so much on medicated shampoos ridden with harsh chemicals but finally, resorted to age old cures and it has helped a great deal.

Neem Tree

If you were able to grow this tree, would the tree alone help with mosquitoes? There is standing water in my back yard that stinks when we have a lot of rain.

Thank you very much,

Neem Oil Benefits

I suffered from dandruff and itchy scalp for aroud 10-12 years. Just two months ago, I started using pure neem oil. It really works!

I use it once a week. I apply some neem oil just an hour before shampoo. I also give my hair a last rinse with colt water having bit of lemon juice in it( it prevents stinking).

However, do not use it too frequently as it might burn your scalp.

Works best..!
by: Neha

Better than Olive oil & any other oil available in market.

Tried almost every other imported oil & shampoos, got frustrated. NO RESULTS..! Finally found out a remedy from my Grandma. OLD INDIAN MEDICINE from South India. Thanks to NEEM LEAVES. Collected a lot of Neem Leaves, took 250 ml of Gingelly oil. Heated the oil with Neem leaves. Added 50ml of NON REFINED coconut oil. Stir it for 15-30 mins on medium or low flame. until you get good mix of Neem mixed oil. The finished product was sort of smelly & had a thick stench of neem.

Apply on scalp before shower every day before shower for 30 days. Highly effective. Completely DANDRUFF FREE.

Understood the true value of OUR Indian Tradition.

All thanks to NEEM. SUPER EFFECTIVE. Try it out
