What is the best home remedy for getting rid of dandruff?

I have tried head and shoulders and many OTC dandruff shampoos without any relief and was wondering if anyone has a good home remedy that actually works!

  • White vinegar (leave it on with a shower cap until it dries) then shampoo it out. Stinks like crazy but works. A few treatments makes a big difference.

  • If you buy some generic, uncoated aspirin ( not tylenol) and crush them, then put them in a small amount of shampoo to form a paste then rub directly on your scalp. Let set about a half hour and wash out with any dandruff or regular shampoo. always works! Aspirin has a salicylic base which is used as a mild dermabrasion, and will slough off all those dry dead skin cells and reveal a clear pink scalp when used at least weekly. GL

  • Shannon, I sell Pure Romance products are we have a product called Miracle oil. It can turn a regular shampoo into a dandruff shampoo, and a dandruff shampoo into a MEDICATED dandruff shampoo! I have recommended it to SEVERAL of my customers and they have each had positive reviews! Here is my website, in case you want to check it out!

    Have a great day!

  • It's expensive, but they say Nizoral works. Something about some people being more sensitive to normal scalp bacteria or yeast, Nizoral kills some of the stuff.

  • for the ladies who used the apple cider vinegar did you shampoo as usual and then poor that over your head? Did you use conditioner too or does the vinegar act as a conditioner?
