Dandruff can be embarrassing and buying medicated shampoos can be expensive.

Luckily, we have found some homemade solutions to make your scalp healthy again.

Vinegar wash

You will need: 1/2 cup of warm water, 1/2 cup of white vinegar and a cup.

  1. Mix the water and vinegar together in a cup. The amount you will need will vary depending on how much hair you have. Pour the mixture over your hair and scrub gently for a few minutes.
  2. Rinse thoroughly with water. Wait for about 8 to 12 hours before having a normal shower.
  3. Repeat once a week.

Tea tree oil

One study has showed that tea tree oil can significantly improve the severity of dandruff. Simply add tea tree oil to your usual shampoo. Make the new mixture with a total of five percent tea tree oil.

Aspirin

Aspirin can help with more than just headaches, it contains salicylic acid which is the active ingredient contained in many medicated dandruff shampoos. Crush two aspirin into a fine powder and add the normal amount of shampoo you would use for washing your hair. leave the mixture in your hair for one to two minutes before rinsing and washing again with normal shampoo. Do this every time you wash your hair.
