Male1: It’s time for everyday health from A to Z segment. Today’s letter is H for hair. We’ve got some surprising home remedy for healthier hair. I’m going to start with aspirin, believe it or not. Some people say that crushing up a tablet of aspirin and put it in your shampoo bottle may help with dandruff. So we’re going to start up with a little acid base lesson, we’ve never talked about this. PH rages form 1 to 14, 7 is neutral. The lower the PH the more acidic. Your hair is supposed to be between about 4.5 to 5.5 PH which means it’s slightly acidic. Well the aspirin, if you crushed up and put in there, it can lower the PH of certain shampoo’s and they say that it can help stabilized dandruff which dandruff is essentially just flaking of your scalp. So you know Liza, some shampoo’s already have aspirins also known as salicylic acid. Some shampoos actually have a little bit of salicylic acid. Liza: There are a lot of things over the counter that they can be very good for dandruff. So even though we’re talking about natural things, you can buy a lot of things, but you have to be very careful because a lot of times though dandruff shampoo can actually strip the hairs and make it be very, very dry. So you may want to use an extra strong conditioner with it and even these naturals things will do some of that as well, so you might want to use a little conditioner to back that up. Male2: I have a feeling this one might dry your hair out a little bit. But its vodka, they say that the vodka can help increase the shine of your hair by kind of stripping the hair ball, the build up that you get from some of the products and some of the minerals in the water, it can help strip the hair off, and might help a little bit. Male1: You’ll look in the mirror and you’re like, wow men I’m good. Liz: Well you know, bad if you go to work and you smell like vodka, I mean it maybe a little. Male1: That was actually after I put vodka in my hair, it was a good hair day for me. Liz: There you go. Male1: It was a good hair day for me. Liz: Definitely long and luscious Male2: But they say that vodka can also clean off your scalp which will help stimulate the hair falls and may help them grow a little bit to. But you’re not going to do this all the time, only like twice a month. Just a little bit of vodka in your shampoo. Male1: I got to tell you. I’m not going to do that. It’s not for me. Male3: For those of you with naturally oily hair. Girl you got some oily hair. Witch Hazel which is a natural astringent product, what it does is actually applying it to the hair to the roots, closes those pores, less sebum production. I mean you have pores you have sudations glands in your scalp as well as in your face. That’s why people have particularly greasy hair. It’s just an over production. So use a little Witch Hazel which contains alcohol and the Witch Hazel itself. Give it a shot. She’s already looking better. Male1: Keep going buddy.
