How to get rid of Dandruff Naturally


Dandruff is a result of many factors. It’s not dependent on  any one reason, it could be a result of one or multiple factors some of which are listed below.

Dry Scalp

Dry Scalp is one of the basic problems which causes Dandruff. People who don’t oil their hair properly and have a dry scalp originally, tend to face this problem on and off. Proper oiling of hair along with steaming at least once a week is recommended

Dirt and Dust

Our hair has a very high chance of accumulating dirt and dust because of the pollution and dirt all around. In this condition it’s very important to maintain proper hair hygiene by washing hair at least twice a week. One can wash hair more up to 3 times if his hair are more prone to dirt and dust or the one who travels a lot. Clean hair helps in keeping dandruff away. Remember not to overdo shampoo and washing of hair since this again affects the hair quality

Excessive use of Shampoos, Conditioners and Hair creams

It’s good to wash hair properly to maintain hygiene but it’s never good overdoing it, especially if you are using any shampoo, conditioner or cream which are loaded with lot of chemicals. This affects the quality of hair badly.

These were some of the basic causes of dandruff, now I am going to share with you its CURE. These are some of the best solutions which help in getting rid of Dandruff naturally and also quickly, with regular use.



Curd is said to be a miracle treatment in Dandruff. Apply generous quantity of fresh curd  to your hair before shampooing. Leave it for 30-40 minutes and shampoo as normal. This Curd treatment not only removes dandruff but also gives nice bounce, lustre and shine to hair if continued on regular basis.

Aspirin and Zinc Tablets

Take 3-4 tablets of Aspirin or Zinc and crush them. Put this powder in your shampoo bottle and use this mixture to shampoo your hair for next few times.

Aloe Vera Gel

Apply pure Aloe Vera Gel pulp ( the one from Aloe Vera plant) on your hair. Massage all over your scalp, hair taking care of corners where dandruff accumulates the most . Leave for half an hour and shampoo as normal. You can even use Patanjali one if pure not available.


Lemon to get rid of Dandruff Naturally

Lemon is considered as one of the best cures for dandruff. Apply fresh Lemon juice nicely on your hair, scalp, in the corners and then leave it for half an hour.  Use a gentle shampoo followed by conditioner.

One can also apply Lemon juice mixed with Coconut Oil and leaving it overnight if dandruff is too severe. Doing this regularly for some days will help in removing the Dandruff completely.

Garlic, Onion, Radish Juice

Now this is one best remedy for dandruff but is very messy and difficult to do. Take out the juice of any if these vegetables, Garlic, Onion, Radish by cutting them and squeezing its juice in a bowl. Apply this fresh juice to hair scalp at night, tie hair up, wear a shower cap and leave it overnight. The smell of all these vegetable is so strong that it might not make you sleep creating a lot of discomfort and irritation. I tried this with Onion and Radish once but could not make I to the other day, since the smell was so bad. But if you can do this, it’s a very good treatment to remove and get rid of dandruff naturally. You can even do this during day time but make sure to cover hair so that no dirt goes in

Neem Oil

Mix few drops of pure organic Neem oil with your regular oil and use this while massaging your hair. One can even use powder of fresh Neem leaves if Neem Oil is not available but this would be little messy.

Herbal shampoo

Patanjali Shampoo to get rid of Dandruff Naturally

I always believe in using herbal products and shampoo because even if you use them more frequently, they don’t harm you as much as chemical shampoos do. I have used PATANJALI KESH KANTI SHAMPOO and this has become my all-time favourite shampoo. This Patanjali shampoo not only helps in getting rid of Dandruff, but also keeps dandruff at bay.

Apple Cider Vinegar
