Home Remedies for Dandruff

Home remedies for dandruff can get rid of those annoying white, dry flakes for good. If you are looking for homemade, natural ways to tackle the white flakes, here's a list you can try:

  • One common home remedy for dandruff relief is in your kitchen. Apply straight vinegar or apple cider vinegar to your scalp and leave it on for two minutes. Then rinse and shampoo as usual. You can also put the vinegar in a spray bottle and mist your hair thoroughly a few minutes before you get in the shower.
  • If vinegar isn't your thing, try lemons. You can use lemon leaves or lemon juice for natural ways to tackle the white flakes. If you choose leaves, crush or cut them up and then steep them in 2 quarts of distilled water. Let it cool, strain and then use once a week as a rinse after shampooing. Once your dandruff is cleared up, use once a month to keep the flakes away. To use lemon juice, apply a tablespoon of lemon juice then shampoo and rinse with clear water. Then rinse again with two cups water and two tablespoons lemon juice. Use every other day until your dandruff is gone.
  • Other natural remedies for dandruff relief involve the use of oil. Make a mixture of olive oil and almond oil, massage into your scalp and leave on for five minutes then rinse.
  • Tea tree oil is considered excellent for dandruff relief. Add about two droppers of tea tree oil to your regular shampoo.
  • Cover your hair in dark chocolate and leave in overnight. Melt the chocolate, let it cool - you don't want to get burned - and then cover your head with a shower cap.
