Dandruff Home Remedies
Flakes look good on the Christmas tree, not on your shoulders or nape. So what do you do when the dreaded dandruff hits your scalp? Give it TLC, because your hair deserves your attention. Let’s understand why dandruff happens in the first place and how to get rid of dandruff simply from the comfort of your home? The reasons behind a flaky scalp can be many – from hormonal imbalance, excessive sebum flow on the scalp, seasonal fluctuations, build-up of hair products, to poor hair hygiene. Here are some tried-and-tested dandruff home remedies, hair care tips and products right off the shelf that you can try.
  • Our first to get rid of dandruff is an ordinary kitchen staple – lemon! Massage two tablespoons of lemon juice onto your scalp and rinse it with water. Alternatively, after shampooing, stir 1 tablespoon of lemon juice into a cup of water and give your hair a last rinse with it (you get the bonus of odour-free hair too!). The astringent action of lemon controls the sebum flow to prevent dandruff.
  • Another popular home remedy tip to rid of dandruff is to use vinegar. Prepare a solution with equal amounts of vinegar and water, and apply on your hair. Shampoo after 30 minutes. Vinegar will leave your hair soft and shiny, but you might want to follow it up with a fragrant conditioner later on, to handle the acidic smell.
  • If the flakes work in pulling your spirits down, try the salt therapy. Rub some salt on your scalp, gently massage and then shampoo. Your hair will be instantly devoid of flakes as the abrasive action of salt will loosen flakes.
  • Look for hair products that have lemon and other hair-nourishing ingredients to combat dandruff. Our recommendation – Dabur Vatika Enriched Coconut Hair Oil. Enriched with the goodness of lemon, amla, and henna along with six other trusted herbs, its unique formulation ensures deeper oil penetration and gives you a healthy scalp and beautiful hair.
  • Also try Vatika Premium Naturals Lemon and Henna Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for a long-term relief from dandruff. Wash hair as and when needed to keep the scalp clean, and rinse out shampoo and conditioner thoroughly.
  • If in spite of all these dandruff home remedies, your dandruff is still persistent, it might be time to check with a doctor for thyroid problems and other hormonal disturbances. Also, get yourself an allergy test done to rule out any scalp irritants.
