In general, dandruff is a result of seborrheic dermatitis, which causes oily, red, and scaly skin. When these white or pale yellow scales flakes off, dandruff results. Seborrheic dermatitis can occur anywhere you have oil glands, such as on your eyebrows, in your groin, in your armpits, and on your nose.

Using a gentle shampoo on a daily basis can treat mild dandruff. Another option is to use a medicated shampoo. There is a possibility that symptoms will return later. That’s where this delightful home remedy for dandruff comes into play.

  1. I suffered with severe dandruff for several years before joining the “no poo” movement and getting rid of all commercial shampoos and conditioners. Within a couple of weeks my scalp healed completely, my dandruff went away and my hair has never been healthier or looked better.
