This is the best hair mask if you have dandruff. I have been using it from last 10 years and it definitely helps to fight dandruff. The curd is a natural conditioner that makes hair soft, while lemon helps in fighting dandruff. All you need to do is squeeze a lemon in a bowl of curd and ta da! Apply this mixture on to the hair and massage the roots of your hair with this, very gently. Keep it for about 40 minutes and then wash off with cold water. You can see the results within 4 weeks if you have severe dandruff. The quantity of curd or lemon can be adjusted according to the length of your hair. If you have extremely dry and brittle hair, then you can add honey to this mixture to make your hair soft, smooth and silky.

2. Coconut milk and lemon hair mask

This is another hair mask that you can try to treat dandruff. You can keep this mask overnight and wash your hair the next morning. It gives amazing results. You just have to put on your shower cap before sleeping to avoid the mess on your bed cover.

Tea tree essential oil can also help in treating dandruff. Now, because it is an essential oil, it should be mixed with a carrier oil. You can choose any carrier oil of your choice.
