Switch to a Dandruff Shampoo
Regular old shampoo just won’t cut it in the face of dandruff. So call in the professional care of a dandruff shampoo, which contains fungal-fighting ingredients like zinc pyrithione, ketoconazole, coal tar, selenium sulfide, and salicylic acid. Just be sure to leave the shampoo on your scalp for at least 5-minutes after lathering so it can work it’s magic.
Give Your Scalp a Massage
One thing that banishes dandruff is a good massage. So be sure to give your scalp a nice rub down as you work shampoo through your locks in order to loosen and wash away dry skin. Finger contact with your scalp will also improve the effectiveness of the flake-fighting ingredients in dandruff shampoo.
Tea Tree Oil
Tree oil is a gentle and natural remedy for stubborn dandruff. Just add a few drops to your regular shampoo and massage directly into the scalp for a natural alternative to the harsh chemicals in dandruff shampoos and treatments.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Give those embarrassing flakes the rinse-off by rinsing your locks with a cup of apple cider vinegar in cold water following shampooing. If you can’t stand the smell of a rinse, massage 2 tablespoons of the vinegar directly to your scalp, let set for 3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
