1. Avoid Hair care mistakes
Firstly you need to understand how dandruff is formed. It is formed because basically your scalp is a very active environment. It constantly producing skin cells. The skin cells are produced and then they die.
If your scalp is very oily then your skin cells collect together, mixed with the oil and form those white flakes that fall off your head when you are suffering from dandruff.
Dandruff might be caused because of too little or too much oiling or too little or too much shampooing or too little or too much conditioning. If you want to oil your hair make sure you oil it at least 2-3 times a week. Oil is basically a fertilizer of your scalp so make sure you oil your hair at least 2-3 times a week but not more than that.
Do shampoo 2-3 times a week. If you are suffering from dandruff then use anti dandruff shampoo once or twice a week. Don’t shampoo too less or too much. If you shampoo every day it get rid of its natural protective layer of oils.
Conditioners – These are oil based substances. If you use too much of it it makes your scalp oily. Make sure to conditioning it every time when you use your mild shampoo. Don’t overdo it or don’t under do it.
But very importantly most of people suffer from dandruff because of excess hair product usage. When you are applying hair products like wax, gel , clay, creams, make sure boys and girls that the hair product doesn’t come in contact with your scalp. It is supposed to be apply on the body of your hair. If you will apply to your scalp it will increase your dandruff problem.
You have to take care of your environment because at the end of the day dandruff is an infection. So firstly get your pillow cases clean. A lot of time people use anti dandruff products and still gets dandruff once again because environment is still dandruff infested.
Take your pillow case off your pillow. Dip it in an antiseptic solution that’s an antiseptic soap mixed with water and then leave it in that solution for at least 12 hours that’s how you can get rid of dandruff.
But it doesn’t just stop at your pillow. Also do the same with your combs and brushes that you regularly use in your hair. Also do that same with all kinds of head gears like caps, hats, helmets. If you have any kind of hairband or hair clips then do the same with that. Anything that will come in contact with your scalp wash it.
3. Home Remedies

If your skin is acidic that’s a good thing because it kills all the harmful bacteria and infections on your skin. It’s like a protective layer. What you need to remember is that people who suffer from dandruff there PH of the scalp is slightly off. It may not be as acidic as it should be. So lot of anti-dandruff shampoo set that PH right and make it slightly more acidic.
That’s where the science of home remedies comes in. Any kind of natural product that is slightly acidic will help to cure your dandruff. So think of home remedies like curd, lemon or Apple cider vinegar. Make sure you get organic apple cider vinegar. Mix it with little bit of water. Make a slightly dilute solution and apply it onto your scalp. It cleanses your scalp and works the same way as curd or lemon.
4. Organic anti-dandruff shampoo
