Indian Gooseberry

Indian gooseberry is a natural fruit with both antidandruff and healthy hair properties. The extract is a natural hair shampoo cleanser and tonic. To help reduce dandruff, prepare a gooseberry curd and let it ferment for several days at room temperature, then combine the curd with a wee bit of lemon juice. Gently massage the mixture into the scalp for 30 minutes. Gooseberry is also said to naturally darken the hair and help cover gray hair. Mix dried ground gooseberries with a little lemon juice and apply to hair regularly.

How We Help

At DermaHarmony, our goals are to educate chronic skin care suffers about dermatology, share what contributes to health and wellness, and support our readers in any way we can. We manufacture and sell two soaps in our store that help with a variety of skin conditions. They're worth consideration if you have a condition that can be helped with pyrithione zinc, sulfur, or salicylic acid.
