Greater burdock (Arctium lappa) is a Eurasian species of plants in the sunflower family. Its root was used in Medieval Europe as a vegetable, but it is now mainly used in Japanese and Chinese cuisine. Dried burdock roots are used in traditional medicine in some countries and burdock root oil extract is a popular scalp remedy. It is made by mixing high-quality vegetable oil with burdock root in an airtight container and leaving the mixture for about six weeks to infuse. Of course, cosmetic manufacturers use more progressive methods such as CO2 extraction.

Ukrainian beauty brand Home Doctor offers several types of burdock oil infused with herbal extracts and other natural ingredients. The brand is owned by Elfa Pharm, a Ukrainian-Polish group of companies whose products are made according to strict pharmaceutical standards and are known for their high quality combined with affordability.

One of the brand’s most popular products is Anti-Dandruff Burdock Oil with tea tree oil and rosemary oil. These essential oils are known for their antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and soothing effect. When added to burdock oil, they help to eliminate fungi and bacteria that cause dandruff. Besides, they soothe the scalp and relieve irritation and itching caused by dandruff, as well as regulate sebum secretion. And burdock oil itself provides hair follicles with nutrients, reduces hair loss and stimulates hair growth.

Anti-dandruff burdock oil is very easy to use. First and foremost, you need to warm it up a bit because warm DIY oil-based hair masks are more effective. You can use the microwave or put the bottle into a bowl of hot water. Then apply a small amount of oil to hair roots and comb your hair to spread the oil evenly along the entire length. To increase the effect, wrap the hair with plastic wrap and then with a towel. Leave the oil on for 20–30 minutes and then wash the hair thoroughly with your regular shampoo. There is no need to apply conditioner because burdock oil already has a conditioning effect.

However effective burdock oil might be, it is not suitable for daily use. If you suffer from dandruff, you need to apply burdock oil once or twice a week for a month. Then make a two-week break and repeat the treatment again to ensure a long-lasting effect. If you follow these simple rules, your hair and scalp will be healthy and conditioned and you will forget about dandruff forever!

The use of burdock oil as a hair treatment has some peculiarities you need to know about. Oil hair masks are hard to rinse off, so you might need to shampoo your hair twice to make sure there is no oil residue. However, we recommend against using shampoos with aggressive surfactants such as SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) or SLES (sodium laureth sulfate). Mild, natural shampoos are much better for your hair. For example, shampoos by Planeta Organica and Natura Siberica are great for rinsing off oil masks and taking care of the hair.

You can also use burdock oil to make DIY hair masks. For example, burdock oil hair mask with egg yolk is great for dry, weak and brittle hair. It provides the hair with the nutrients it needs and repairs damaged hair structure. To make the mask, mix 3 tbs burdock oil, 1 tbs liquid honey and 2 egg yolks. Warm the mixture up a bit, apply to hair roots and then spread along the entire length. Leave the mask on for 60 minutes, then shampoo your hair thoroughly.
