dandruff on the head of dark-haired guyMany people have dandruff problems and figuring out what causes it can be difficult. There are plenty of over the counter products designed to treat dandruff however natural remedies can be just as effective.

It is perfectly normal for the skin on your scalp to exfoliate but it’s not much fun when the amount of exfoliation causes dandruff. There are usually a couple of reasons for this, either you are producing too much oil or the method of removal is not effective. When you start too produce to much it’s likely you will have scalp inflammation.

These two natural methods can help ease the inflammation and get rid of dandruff.

How To Get Rid Of Dandruff

This natural treatment has worked for me. After shampooing rinse with half a cup of apple cider vinegar mixed with half a cup of warm water. Rub it into the scalp and leave to dry, do not rinse out. Do this every time you wash your hair until the dandruff disappears.

Or you can try this method. Slice up a handful of lemon leaves and steep in 2 litres of boiling water. When cool use this lemon water to shampoo hair and rinse as usual. Do this every week until the dandruff disappears, then once every six weeks.
