Aspirin is awesome and we all use it, right? Well yes, and in my personal opinion, I really think that all people around the world should have aspirin in their medicine cabinets. We usually take this miraculous pill when we have a terrible headache, fever or when we notice the first symptoms of cold. Aspirin is quite effective as a general pain reliever. Other people take it to help with their heart problems and to prevent blood clots from forming.
Aspirin is extremely effective and useful due to its powerful ingredient – salicylic acid. Salicylic acid, the active ingredient in aspirin, was first isolated in 1897 by Felix Hoffman, when he worked as a chemist at Bayer. Today, the annual consumption of aspirin reached around 40,000 tons in the world, making it one of the most commonly used drugs.
As we said, you can use aspirin when you have a terrible headache, fever, cold, flu – but, did you know that you can use aspirin to fight off dandruff? Well yes, and this simple, but effective trick will make your hair healthy, soft and shiny. So, if you suffer from an itchy, dry, flaky scalp, you should try this simple method. This method is very simple and easy – you just have to crush 2-3 pills into powder and mix it in with your shampoo. Make sure you leave the shampoo to sit on your scalp for several minutes before rinsing, this works because the salicylic acid it contains makes it a very strong and effective moisturizing agent. Or, try this alternative method instead – crush 4-5 pills into powder and add it into your hair mask. You will be amazed by the results.
