A lot of things keep bothering us on a daily basis and we do not need dandruff to be one of them.

We know you can do anything and everything to get rid of this problem and we are happy to help. In today’s post, I will tell you about 10 things that can help you to get rid of dandruff permanently. If you don’t want to ruin your black dresses with the white dandruff flakes (and want Virat Kohli to dance with you), then add these ingredients to your hair care routine.

Massaging the baking soda on your scalp helps to prevent the fungal growth and reduce the dandruff. If you continue using this once a week, your dandruff will go away forever.
2. Tea Tree Oil
Shampoos containing tea tree oil as an essential ingredient re great for dandruff problem. It has excellent anti fungal and anti inflammatory properties that helps to reduce dandruff problems. If you do not want to invest in separate tea tree shampoo, add some tea tree oil in your regular shampoo and massage it well in the scalp. You can also mix the oil in your regular tea tree oil to get similar benefits.
Methi is well known for its anti-fungal benefits. You can soak the methi overnight and wash your hair with it the next day. You can also make a paste of the soaked methi and add it to curd and make an anti-dandruff hair-pack.
4. Neem Oil

Transfer it in a spray bottle and spray it on you scalp. Massage and leave it for a few hours and then wash it off using shampoo.
6. Lemon Juice

But you should not sue concentrated lemon juice directly to the scalp. You can mix a few drops of it to your hair oil and massage it to the scalp. Or you can also dilute lemon juice with water. Mixing lemon juice to henna pack is also another great way to incorporate it in your hair care routine.
It may sound weird, but it is absolutely true. Aspirin contains salicylates which is the active ingredient of medicated shampoos containing salicylic acid. If you do not want to use a separate shampoo for dandruff, you can make your own anti-dandruff shampoo suing aspirin. Crush 1-2 aspirin and mix it to your regular shampoo. Using this once a week can be effective if you have dandruff issues.

If the smell is too strong for you, you can always mix some honey to it. Massage the mixture on your scalp for 10-15 minutes, leave it for an hour and then shampoo your hair. You will see great results within a few weeks.
10. Medicated Shampoos
At times, the dandruff problems are too difficult to manage and only natural ingredients may not be enough. In such cases using medicated shampoo can be of great help. Sebamed Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, Cipla Danfree Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, Nizoral Anti Dandruff Solution, Cipla 8X Anti-Dandruff Shampoo are some great options. Use them once or twice a week for a month and you will surely see the dandruff go away. You may not continue using it. Use it when things go out of hand and then you can keep things in check suing the natural ingredients. That sounds like a plan, right? 😀
