Who has dandruff problems? Whether it's due to the weather, the wrong shampoo or you've had it since forever it's just a big pain in the neck moreover when you want to wear black. Well, Mr. D has been battling his for years which only developed after he worked on a cruise ship bound for the Mediterranean. I blame it on Greece, or was it Turkey? Anyway, Borax totally did the job just after one treatment!

Borax, also known as sodium tetraborate, is a boron mineral and salt that’s mined directly from the ground and wholly natural. It does not cause cancer, absorb through the skin or even accumulate in the body. It is not harmful to the environment. In fact, the largest borax mine in the world – found in Boron, California – is considered by many to be the most ecologically sound and environmentally sustainable mine in America. This is also the mine where 20 Mule Team comes from. Borax is acutely toxic in the same manner that salt is. Ingested in moderate quantities, it causes gastrointestinal upset and nausea. Bottom line: While it may be listed as “poison” on the box, it’s only toxic at very, very high levels the same way salt, baking soda, and even water is.

So how did Mr. D end his dandruff problem with Borax? Well, he just added a teaspoon of it to a cup of water and used it as the final rinse for his hair after the usual organic bar shampoo wash he does. He let the borax solution dry on his hair. There was still some visible flakes to tell you the truth but it was way better than before and we weren't expecting an instant result anyway. The next day there wasn't a dandruff flake in sight and his scalp looked super clean and healthy!

Borax kills fungus and nano-bacteria which we discovered by chance when we used it for the DIY natural termite and ant treatment we did around the house (I will share on another post). We reconfirmed the fact that it does kill fungus through a bit of research. Dandruff is a yeast-like fungus called Malassezia that lives on scalp, no wonder Borax got the job done!

Wondering where to get some? Check out Alysons Chemical in Araneta Ave, near Del Monte Ave in Quezon City. Why spend a lot of money on expensive dandruff shampoos when there is a natural alternative that doesn't break the bank? Try Borax and get rid of dandruff while still stretching your peso! :)
