Last week, we learned all about the causes of dandruff. Now let's figure out how to defeat it!
Using products that can balance sebum production can reduce your dandruff. Look for products that contain essential oils such as maracuja oil (passion fruit oil), buriti oil, jojoba oil, tea tree oil, and rosehip oil.
Apple Cider Vinegar Wash
Apple cider vinegar is great for dandruff because it has anti-inflammatory properties that kills viruses and soothes scalp irritation. To reap the dandruff-fighting benefits, mix 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar with 1/2 cup of water. Massage into your scalp and leave for up to 15 minutes. Rinse. Repeat every few days.
Lemon Juice Massage
Just like apple cider vinegar, lemon juice works wonders on itchy scalps and dandruff. Try massaging lemon juice on your scalp and leaving it for 5 minutes. Lemon juice is strong, so test it on a small part of your scalp first. Dilute with water, if necessary.
