Zei Gezunt with Bubbe's Remedies
For Dandruff, Dry and Damaged Hair

Editor: Yael Rosenberg, RN, B.S.H

Bubbe's eye was critical.  If our hair didn't meet her approval, well then, something had to be done about it.  Those white flakes on our shirts, she wouldn't stand for it so of course, she came up with fix-it potions.

For Dandruff: Pour apple cider vinegar onto the hair and massage into the scalp and leave until dry. Once hair is dried, wash hair thoroughly. Repeat this process daily until the dandruff disappears, and is no longer a problem.

For Damaged, Dry Hair: Egg is a nourishing conditioner for dry or damaged hair.  Eggs can be used for all hair types. Whip the white of an egg to a peak. Add one Table spoon of water to the yolk and mix the white and yolk together. Wet your hair with warm water and apply the mixture to your scalp with your fingertips. Massage gently until the froth is worked into your scalp, then rinse the hair with cool water. Be sure all the egg mixture is washed away.

If your grandmother, aunt, or neighbor revealed an old-fashioned remedy to you, and you would like to share it with us all, please send it to
