You may want to consider skipping the dandruff shampoo and try to me natural remedies to get rid of those annoying white flakes from your hair.


Dandruff may be the result of a dry scalp, or a skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis.

Furthermore, it could also be caused by eczema, psoriasis, or, an overgrowth of a yeastlike fungus called Malassezia.

Modern remedies may include shampoos with zinc pyrithione, which targets fungus and bacteria; ketoconazole; coal tar and selenium sulfide. Natural home remedies include the following.

Apple cider vinegar
