Dandruff! Is there anything more annoying? This annoying condition spoils the look of your hair, and fills your shoulders with those white flakes that are both noticeable and embarrassing. Many of us have tried chemical products to try and get rid of it, but what about some natural dandruff remedies?

Many of the chemical products we use on our scalps, instead of helping can actually make the situation worse. We recommend that you use natural products that are as non-aggressive as possible. You can follow your dermatologist’s advice, but these natural dandruff remedies will also help you fight this condition naturally, and they are all at your fingertips. Ready to try them out?

1. Dandruff remedies with Aloe Vera and lemon

This simple remedy is definitely one of the most effective ones. But remember, in order for the dandruff to completely disappear from your scalp, you should be consistent with the treatment. So, take note of how aloe vera and lemon can help you:

  • Aloe vera has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, great for getting rid of the dandruff problem. To do this, you should take a tablespoon of aloe gel, the translucent paste from the inside of the plant. An ounce of this gel is enough.
  • Once you have it, start to do a massage on your hair while it is dry. Try to put it on your scalp so that your entire head gets moistened by the gel.
  • Then let it sit for 15 minutes.
  • After that, wash your hair as usual with gentle shampoo.
  • Rinse and then have the juice from one lemon ready to do another massage. Why should you apply lemon juice? Because it controls the appearance of dandruff and treats the skin in this area very well. Once you have done this gentle massage and the juice has set in well, rinse with warm water. Never use hot water as this can damage your hair!

Have you got avocados at home? Great, because you’ll just need a couple of rosemary sprigs to make a really effective remedy for that annoying dandruff. Avocado is a great moisturizer, rich in essential oils to treat your scalp’s health.

When combined with rosemary, you will get an ideal treatment for eliminating bacteria, reducing inflammation, and regulating the production of this yeast (malassezia), which causes excessive production of dandruff. So, follow these simple steps:

  • Get the fruit of half an avocado. Put it in a bowl and make a thin and manageable paste with the help of a spoon.
  • Make the rosemary infusion. Boil 200 ml of water and add two sprigs of rosemary. When it boils, let it stand and then mix with the avocado paste.
  • Try to get a paste that is more or less well-blended.
  • Now, apply it your dry hair. Do a 15 minute massage, letting the treatment stay on your scalp.
  • After that, rinse with warm water and wash your hair as normal with a gentle shampoo or proper conditioner.
