Home Remedies to Cure Dandruff

Many of us deal with the problem of dandruff. If you are tired of trying too many anti-dandruff shampoos, but don’t get satisfactory results, you can go for natural home remedies. You will certainly get a positive result.

1. Yogurt

Yogurt is not only a very good option to condition your hair and scalp, but it also a wonderful home remedy to get rid of severe dandruff. Take plain yogurt and apply it on your scalp. Leave it for like 20 minutes and rinse off afterwards. Now, use a little shampoo to clean the scalp.

2. Aspirin

Take two aspirins and crush them. Make a fine powder and mix it into your regular shampoo. When you shampoo, leave it for 2 minutes. After that, wash it off.

3. ACV (Apple Cedar Vinegar)

Take one part of ACV and mix it with one part of water. Both ACV and water should be equal in parts. Mix them well. After shampooing, take a small amount in your palm and rub it onto your scalp. Leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. Then wash it off with water. Repeat this procedure for a week or so.

4. Oil Therapy

Take mild oil. It is considered that baby oil is the mildest oil. Use baby oil if you are unable to find mild oil. Heat this oil, but not too much as this will burn your scalp and fingers. First, touch the oil. If it is okay, take some oil in your palms and massage gently. Do not apply too much pressure or your hair will fall. Now, heat some water. Soak a towel in it. The towel should be long enough to cover your scalp and hair. Now, squeeze the excess water and cover your hair with this warm towel for 20 minutes. Take the towel off after 15-20 minutes and leave it overnight. In the morning, shampoo your hair.

5. Coconut Oil Massage

Heat some coconut oil and massage your scalp with it, gently. Leave it overnight. Rinse with shampoo, the next morning. It can be difficult to get the oil out in one wash. Wash your hair twice, if needed. Coconut oil and especially the heated oil will moisturise your scalp and hair. Repeat it every week.

6. Baking Soda

Take a handful of baking soda and apply it onto your scalp. Massage for a minute and then, wash it off thoroughly. Repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, your scalp will be dandruff-free, and hair will look beautiful.

7. Tea Tree Oil

Take some tea tree oil in your palm and massage your scalp and hair with it. Leave it overnight. Rinse in the morning.

8. Listerine

We all know that Listerine is a great mouthwash product, but how many of you know that it can actually help you to get rid of that terrible dandruff? The methyl salicylate and menthol can provide relief in itching. Dab a cotton ball in Listerine and place it on your scalp and see the wonder.

9. Lemon

Lemon is a very good and effective natural remedy for dandruff. After shampoo, put some lemon juice on your scalp and massage gently. Leave it for 1-2 minutes and wash thoroughly.

10. Mouthwash

Take 1 cup of mouthwash and 9 cups of normal water. Mix it together. After shampoo, rinse your hair and scalp with this mouthwash mixture. Do not use water afterwards. Just style your hair like always. Repeat this procedure once a month.
