Summer season is here and one would be very prone to an unshakable ordeal of flakes on the head. Dandruff recurs due to the dry weather, piling up on the scalp before you know it. Apart from the chemical medications and anti-dandruff shampoos available in the market, there are some effective home remedies that one can apply to ward off that dandruff.

Here are some of them
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil has been proven as a very useful antibiotic for many problems – skin rashes, itching and most importantly dandruff. Tea tree oil comes with a great smell and gets away easily after wash. If you have dandruff, apply tea tree oil liberally all over your scalp and let it work for 5 to 10 minutes. Wash the hair with your usual shampoo. Repeat this twice every week and see the dandruff vanish.
Yogurt- Curd
Curd is said to be very strong in acting to fight dandruff. A time tested grandma recipe that will clear your scalp in no time – mix curd and drops of lemon. Apply on the scalp and let it stay for ten minutes. There would be a tingling, annoying sensation but not to worry; it’s the curd acting on those flakes.
Mouthwash:Yes, mouthwash helps this way too. Mix one part of mouthwash with 9 parts of water and pour over the scalp right after the hair wash. Now, towel dry without rinsing. Mouthwash helps fight dandruff in its own unique way.

Banana Vinegar Mix
– Peel one Banana and mix with two cups vinegar. Mash and make a fine mix to apply on the scalp for 5 to 10 minutes. Wash away with your shampoo and see the results. If the dandruff looks chronic and recurring, do this once every week to bid goodbye to flakes forever.
Lemon Juice – Perhaps the most effective way and less time consuming. Apply lemon juice on the scalp and let it stay for about 20 minutes. You will feel great itching and burning but don’t worry, the lemon is working heavy on the scalp to clear out the flakes. Wash away with shampoo. This tip proves very helpful especially if you are working and have no time to sit around mixing things.
Aspirin – Aside being a powerful drug for body pains, Aspirin helps kill the dandruff, literally. If you have severe case of recurring chronic flakes, crush aspirin tablets into a fine powder. Now rub the powder on your scalp and ler it stay for 5 minutes. Wash away with a shampoo that you normally use. See your scalp all clear.
It is very important to keep in mind that using excessive conditioner does not help, but increases the dandruff to appear on the head. Keeping the scalp clear is of utmost importance to stay away from flakes.
