It’s hard to miss the small, white flakes that linger on my scalp. But while the condition is very common, it also can be hard to treat. I am attempting to figure out how to get rid of dandruff, look no further.
@srabani There are a few things you can do yourself if specialty shampoos aren’t cutting it. If you try home remedies for two weeks or more without seeing any changes, you should seek professional medical advice. Shampoo more often. This can help reduce the oils on your scalp.
Use green tea. Combine green tea, peppermint essential oil and white vinegar and massage it on your scalp for five minutes. Then, rinse it off with a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Green tea and peppermint essential oil have antioxidants and anti-microbial properties, which can promote a healthy scalp and also condition your hair so it's not as dry or irritated.
Use apple cider vinegar. Dilute the vinegar with equal parts of water. Use this mixture as a substitute for your shampoo. Apple cider vinegar can kill the fungus that may cause dandruff. It provides relief from itchiness and can help subside the dandruff.
Have a coconut oil massage: Combine five to 10 drops of tea tree oil with five tablespoons of coconut oil. Apply the mixture to your scalp at night and then rinse it off in the morning or if you’re pressed for time, just leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse it off. Coconut oil also fights against fungi, which can help eliminate the dandruff. Tea tree oil will help bring the shine back to your hair.
