Zinc Shampoo. Give your dandruff shampoo time to work. If you choose to wash your hair with dandruff shampoo, leave the shampoo in for at least 5 minutes before you wash it off. This will give the shampoo time to work.
Use yogurt to get rid of that dandruff. Just wash and rinse your hair, then rub plain yogurt into the scalp, and leave for 10-15 minutes. Rinse, then wash again, using as little shampoo as necessary. Two tablespoons of vinegar can be used as a final rinse.
Try apple cider vinegar. Take one part apple cider vinegar and mix it with one part water. Wash your hair normally, then pour vinegar-water mixture carefully onto hair and scrub into your scalp. Leave on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with water. The vinegar smell will disappear once your hair is dry.
Baking soda to the rescue! Instead of shampooing, rub a heaping tablespoon of baking soda into your wet hair and scalp. Wash thoroughly after one minute. After two weeks of your baking soda shampoo, your scalp should begin producing natural oils, leaving the skin on your head moisturized and dandruff-free.
Baking soda with fresh lemon. Mix freshly squeezed lemon juice with baking soda. Apply to scalp. Leave for 10-15 minutes. Apply to scalp. Leave for a few minutes. Rinse hair. Use apple cider vinegar as a conditioner.
Apply baby oil onto scalp. A little bit will go a long way. Massage the scalp but not too roughly. Cover your hair with a towel and leave the baby oil in overnight. Wash with a good anti-dandruff shampoo in the morning. The oil should condition your scalp while you’re sleeping.
Use tea tree oil. Get shampoo with tea tree oil and use frequently. Tea tree oil smells fantastic and is a natural antiseptic. Shampoos with at least 5% tea tree oil have been shown to effectively treat dandruff. Rub the tea tree oil shampoo into your scalp and let sit for 5 minutes. Rinse with water.
Use olive oil. Apply olive oil before washing your hair. Let it do its stuff for about 5-10 minutes before washing your hair. Before going to bed, apply olive oil once more. Wrap your head in a towel or cotton cap to absorb the oil. You should wake up to a dandruff free head.
Use egg yolks. Mix the yolks of 1 to 2 eggs. Apply to a dry head. As much as possible, place it onto just the scalp area. Put a plastic bag over the scalp/hair. Be warned – the egg has a bad smell and it leaks. Leave it on your scalp for 1 hour. Wash thoroughly with a good shampoo. You might have to wash your head twice to take it out.
