How to Use Poppy Seeds for Dandruff

Poppy Seeds for Dandruff

 

Poppy Seeds are packed with several different vitamins, minerals, and omega oils. Just one teaspoon provides measurable amounts of calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Folate, Iron, Zinc, Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, and many more. The oils and nutrients are great for combating dandruff. This recipe can help reduce dandruff.

Ingredients:

1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons Unwashed Poppy Seeds


Directions:  Soak the unwashed Poppy Seeds in 1/3 cup of cold water for 12 hours in a bowl. Once seeds have soaked, leave seeds in the water and bowl they soaked in, and crush the seeds with the bottom of a large spoon, or the bottom of a cup. Once crushed, mix seeds with a spoon, and allow to soak for an additional hour. Add additional water if needed. After the Poppy Seeds have soaked, strain seeds using a small-knit strainer, or coffee filter. Save the water; this is what is used, the seeds are no longer needed at this point.

How To Use: Use 1-2 teaspoons of the mixture with your normal shampoo while taking a shower. If mixture makes your hair too oily, use less. The amount required may vary depending on your hair type. Make sure to re-mix before using.
