6. Using Coconut oil
Coconut oil is anti fungal and gets rid of the fungus that causes flaking and itching. Apply warm oil to the scalp and massage gently for 10 minutes. Leave the mixture on the hair for an hour or overnight and then wash off with mild shampoo. You can also add a few drops of vitamin E oil to the coconut oil. This remedy gets rid of dandruff and hair fall permanently when used regular for 4 weeks. If you do not wish to wash your hair, simply let the oil sit in hair as a deep conditioner.
7. Try Aspirin
Yes, you are reading it right. Aspirin, a common headache medication, is also a wonderful way to get rid of dandruff.
Aspirin contains salicylic acid, an ingredient found in many anti-dandruff shampoos. Salicylic acid has been shown to be effective in the treatment of seborrhoeic dermatitis and dandruff.
8. Using Tea Tree Oil
This is another brilliant essential oil which has outstanding remedial qualities. Tea tree oil is really something that has slowly sneaked its way into every home and the users have no complaints at all. Its anti-fungal properties make a perfect applicant to a dandruff riddled scalp. Just adding a few drops of tea tree oil to some shampoo (approximately one drop oil to one ounce of shampoo) and use the mixture. Another good way to use this oil is to dilute it with a few drops of coconut or olive oil. Apply the oil mix and leave for 30 minutes minimum or overnight and then wash thoroughly. Once or twice a week would be more than enough for a healthy scalp.
9. Use White Vinegar
As we all know, vinegar has a certain amount of acetic acid which makes it sour. White vinegar is the same and when used for the scalp, it prevents any fungi from growing on the head. You can use half a cup of vinegar and mix it in two cups of water and rinse your hair with it after shampooing. Rinse out the vinegar mix after 5 minutes with clean water. Another way to use white vinegar for dandruff problems is to mix two parts of vinegar with one part olive oil and three parts of water. Apply to the scalp and leave for ten minutes. Rinse and use mild shampoo to wash it out. Do this twice a week and your scalp will be itch free.
