Ibuprofen and Aspirin are the best known analgesics worldwide. Probably every one of us, at least once in our lifetime, has consumed this pill. Whether it was a cold, flu, headache, toothache, menstrual problems or other pains, Aspirin has been the most famous analgesic for many decades. Remember what our mothers or even grandmothers used to take for toothaches and headaches? It was Aspirin, which can be used in many other ways. They are astonishing, but they work.
A little history of Aspirin
Aspirin has enjoyed its popularity among people around the world for more than 120 years. The most well-known drug, the ingredient salicylic acid, was isolated by chemists Felix Hoffmann and Arthur Eichengrün in August 1896. This name seemed very long and complicated, so pharmaceutical companies renamed it to today’s Aspirin or Acylpyrine. Due to its popularity among the people, up to 40,000 tons of this drug are produced annually.
As mentioned above, Aspirin can also be used in many other ways. For example, to remove dandruff from hair. Sounds very strange, doesn’t it. But believe me, this method is very effective, and not only will you get rid of dandruff, your hair will have a beautiful, healthy look, it will be soft and shiny. If you’ve tried all kinds of products, shampoos and masks but still have a flaky, itchy scalp, give Aspirin another try.
How to use Aspirin
Don’t doubt Aspirin! Try this effective shampoo with Aspirin and you will be pleasantly surprised. You don’t have to buy expensive coconut oils, shea butter, wheat bran and other products. These ingredients will suffice:
- 3-4 Aspirin tablets
- hair mask
The procedure is more than simple. Crush two Aspirin tablets in a mortar and pestle or mug and stir into your shampoo. Apply this mixture to wet hair and leave on for at least five minutes or more. Afterwards, rinse the shampoo off as normal. Now it’s time for the remaining tablets. Crush them and massage them to the roots of your hair. Now leave the Aspirin on again for ten minutes. Rinse your hair. You can also try the second way – crush four to five Aspirin tablets and add them to your hair mask. We recommend using one that contains at least some antioxidants. Now apply the mask with the Aspirin and leave it on again for at least five minutes. The salicylic acid contained in Aspirin moisturizes and can improve a reddened and damaged scalp. For best results, use Aspirin once a week, not more than once.
