Whenever I am making mayonnaise, I prefer to use peanut oil as that always gives the best taste.  However, I recently came across another use for peanut oil, that being effective anti-dandruff treatment!!

A number of clinical tests have shown that traditional peanut oil mixed with lemon juice is a remedy far more effective dandruff treatment than any of the specially formulated shampoos.

How You Use It

Step 1: Rub a small quantity of the peanut oil into your scalp and then leave it resting for two minutes.  (It can help if you warm the peanut oil slightly).

Step 2: Rub in the juice from a freshly squeezed lemon, and then wait again for about another five or six minutes.

Step 3: Shampoo your hair thoroughly with a natural shampoo.

You will need to repeat this treatment each week in order for it to have a lasting effect.
