My last blog post mentioned how I've been having an issue with my hands drying out in the wintertime. Well, another related issue is how my dandruff acts up a bit during the winter as well. Seeing as I'm required to wear black quite often for my job, this is a real problem. After a bit of poking around, I decided to do an oil treatment for my hair. Both coconut oil and tea tree oil are suppose to be good for getting rid of dandruff, so I heated up some coconut oil, put a few drops of tea tree in it, and slather it all over my scalp. An oil treatment is supposed to be good for the hair as well, so I made sure to spread a bit of the oil out to the ends of my hair. I looked like quite a crazy person though because I then proceeded to put a shower cap on over my hair and sit on the couch for an hour (with a Mozzie pig of course). It took two shampoos to get it all out and I honestly can't tell if it did much yet. We'll see. Another suggestion was to put some tea tree into your normal shampoo, which I think I will do.
Tomorrow I'm going to dye my hair so that I'm a red head again. Woohoo!
