Dandruff Remedy: Cheap Simple and Easy

Dandruff can have many causes. It can be caused by dry scalp which leads to flaking and the excessive shedding of dead skin cells of the scalp.

Dandruff can also be caused by skin conditions like eczema, seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis. In some cases, it can be the result of an overgrowth of a fungus called malassezia – speeding up the lifespan of skin cells in your scalp and thereby irritating it.

There are a lot of anti-dandruff shampoos available in the market and each of them contain chemicals that are supposed to help you get rid of dandruff – whatever the cause is. Still, going natural won’t hurt and will probably be the anti-dandruff remedy you’re looking for without having to spend much.

  • Baking Soda

Simply rub baking soda onto your wet hair and rinse off. Do not use shampoo while you are doing this treatment. Baking soda will help release the natural oils from your scalp and will restore your scalp to normal – without the flakes of course! You will initially have to deal with dry hair but it will all get better.

  • Coconut Oil and Lemon Juice

Try mixing 1 tablespoon of juice squeezed out from fresh lemons and 5 tablespoons of coconut oil. Mix them well and apply to your scalp. The lemon juice will help relieve itching while the coconut oil is a pretty good hair moisturizer. Massage onto scalp and leave for about 20 minutes. Rinse it off thoroughly and wash your hair again with shampoo.

  • Vinegar

After shampooing your hair, rinse it with a mixture of 2 cups of apple cider vinegar and 2 cups of cold water. You can also use apple cider vinegar alone and massage it onto your scalp and rinse off.


It’s totally dry up in my head

Dandruff is common but not harmful

Just when you thought you needed a stronger dandruff shampoo to eliminate the flakes that keeps falling like snow from your head, an interesting advice from a friend told you to stop. While thinking all the while you have a problem with your hair, think again, this is not a hair problem,this is actually a skin problem!

This time, more localized on the base of your crowning glory, the head. The flaking and intense itchiness on the head is actually caused by overproduction of sebaceous glands.

They are hyperactive because the skin is particularly dry up there! And what to do when something is dry? Women will say, “moisturize!”, well, most men will say “lubricate!”.

Essentially yes, once again with OIL. And by the way, be wary in using strong dandruff control shampoo. They only harm the normal balance of your skin on the scalp which makes the sebaceous glands run havoc!  Hmmmm, the oil from your face can’t be used on the head, no! What we meant here are essential oils like tea tree oil, known for its cleansing power to normalize the bacteria on the scalp.

Rosemary and cedar oil are also known to normalize circulation of the scalp. You can add a few drops of these essential oils in a mild dandruff control shampoo. Another advice I got from a good friends of mine is the use of apple cider vinegar. Errr, acid on a dry scalp?

Pour a small portion of apple cider vinegar and gently massage it on your scalp after taking a bath. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse it off with water. This will help tone the skin and eliminates the bacteria that has now gained residence on your dry scalp.  Remember, dandruff is a major turn off. Nobody wants to lean on a shoulder full of flakes! If you have dandruff and cause hair loss, you better check your doctor for further treatment.
