    How do I successfully treat or get rid of dandruff?

    I live in Utah, and it is extremely dry, I shampoo my hair every other day. I don't use conditioner and my dandruff is pretty bad. What can I do to get rid of it?

    head and shoulders or a more natural method is wash with egg whites rinse really well and then apply real mayo to the scalp area and leave on for 2 minutes rinse with really warm water.

    The cheapest and effective way to treat that is this: after taking a bath or before you go to sleep put some lemon on the infected area though it hurt a bit it really works ! big_smile trust me

    dont use direct lemon, as lemon has some acidic properties that can get you rid of the dandruff but will damage your hair  and can lead to hair fall. You can put few drops of lemon in any oil like mustard oil, castor oil, coconut oil, and then massage ur scalp with it, do this every week and you will get rid of the dandruff. Here  you can find more tips to get rid of the dandruff on the website : … -1261.aspx

    The most effective dandruff cure is to mix extra virgin coconut oil with a bit of oregano oil and massage it in your scalp before you shampoo. Leave it on for 30 minutes, longer is better, overnight is ideal. Wash the oil out of your hair and dry. Repeat this every time you shampoo and rub a few drops of coconut oil in your scalp to moisturize.

    There are so many home remedies to get rid of dandruff. You can use lemon mixed with coconut oil. Otherwise you can also apply curd on your hair. Sometime dandruff occurs due to  internal problems. It is better to get a complete check up done by your home physician.  Drink lots of water every day. Use a good anti dandruff sham,poo that suits you every alternate day. I hope this will help you out.
