When you have a constant fight against something so annoying and persistent as dandruff, you need to use all the weapons that are available. Some of them are hiding in your kitchen, so there is no reason why not to use them. Here are 8 anti dandruff homemade solutions that you can try and add to your normal anti dandruff routine if they work for you:
Homemade anti dandruff treatment with apple cider vinegar
Fill a glass with equal amounts of apple cider vinegar and water and apply it on your your scalp. You can use an empty spray bottle to evenly apply the liquid to the scalp. Wrap your hair in a towel and wash it after 20 minutes. It is advisable to use non distilled organic apple cider vinegar because it is not as strong as the ordinary vinegar. Do this 2 times a week.
Homemade anti dandruff treatment with lemon juice
Lemon juice can help you to remove the annoying white flakes and also will give your hair a beautiful shine. Simply squeeze one lemon in 1/2 liter of water and with it rinse your hair during the last rinse of shampoo. You can use the lemon juice solution 2-3 times a week.
Homemade anti dandruff solution with apple juice
Mix 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed apple juice with 2 tablespoons of hot water. With a cotton pad apply the mixture to the whole head and leave it to stay for 20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Use this apple juice lotion at least once a week.
Homemade anti dandruff treatment with baking soda
After washing your hair, take a little baking soda (around 1 tablespoon), wet it with water and gently rub it into the roots of your hair. Leave it for 2 minutes and rinse your hair with lukewarm water. Do this 2 times a week. Because baking soda removes all dirt and debris accumulated from shampoos and hair products, it might leave your hair feeling too dry. So if you have long hair you might want to use conditioner or olive oil but make sure that you apply it on the ends only.
Homemade anti dandruff solution with tea tree oil
Add 2-3 drops of tea tree oil in your shampoo that you normally use for washing your hair. Then, when using your shampoo, massage your scalp gently and leave it for 5 minutes. Then rinse with lukewarm water.
Homemade anti dandruff treatment with olive oil
Warm a small amount of olive oil. When it is warm to the touch (don’t heat it too much so you won’t burn yourself!), apply it on the scalp (it is good if you apply it throughout the hair too) and massage the scalp well. Wrap your hair with a plastic foil or put on a shower cap, and wrap it in a towel. Leave the oil to stay for 15-30 minutes, then wash the hair with shampoo.
Homemade anti dandruff solution with olive and almond oil
Mix equal amounts of olive oil and almond oil. Apply the mixture to your scalp and hair and put on a shower cap. Leave the mixture until you feel that your scalp is warm (15-20 minutes). Then wash the hair with shampoo. This oil treatments will also make your hair soft and shiny.
Homemade anti dandruff treatment with olive oil and rosemary
In a glass jar, put some olive oil (around 1/4 cup, if you have longer hair you can use more) and add one tablespoon of fresh rosemary. Close the jar and leave it for two days on a sunlight. Drain the oil to remove the rosemary. Apply it on the scalp and on the hair. Wrap your hair with a plastic foil (or shower cap) and in a warm towel sand leave it for half an hour. Finally, wash your hair with shampoo and warm water. Use this oil mask once a week.
