I bought the brand Shea Moisture black soap body wash (liquid) for my body but I didn't like it for body as it didn't smell fruity enough for me and didn't want to throw it out & I ran out of my Trader Joe's tea tree oil shampoo (which works ok for dandruff) so I decided to try the body wash in a pinch because I know that black soap is supposed to be good for the skin and it completely got rid of my dandruff. I know longer have the itchy feeling. I have long curly hair so I do not use it to wash my hair with but just rub it directly on my scalp and that's it. I hope it works for someone else too :)
What has worked for me is tea tree oil. A good shampoo with tea tree oil will do the trick, but not all shampoos that say they have tea tree oil work for me. It may have to do with the concentration. Regardless, the most foolproof method is to get a good, gentle shampoo and add your own tea tree oil to it. I use maybe a dozen drops for a normal sized bottle.
Add Eucalyptus Oil to your shampoo.
A good home remedy to get rid of hair dandruff is applying a tonic, containing celery as a main ingredient. To prepare it, you just need to boil a liter of water with a stalk of celery. Let simmer 5-10 good minutes. then wait for it to get cool. Now get ready applying to the scalp. Apply it and massage for 4-5 mins... It will act as an excellent anti-dandruff lotion.

Many people suggest apple cider vinegar and I would love to use it- how simple! But for those of us who color our hair, especially to hide the gray, apple cider vinegar strips your color! My routine that does work for me and my expensive color job- brush scalp with copper bristle brush (88% effective in killing fungus that causes dandruff) for 5-7 minutes, add natural remedy scalp oil (try 'Best of Nature' 'Dry Scalp Oil' or 'Natural Transitions' 'Ooh! Dry Itchy Scalp Relief') or make your own with carrier oils like coconut, jojoba, aloe and essential oils like clary sage, tea tree, lemon grass. Rub oil into scalp and brush again with copper brush. leave in over night and wash and condition in morning with natural shampoo and conditioner (Shea Moisture is my favorite brand of natural inexpensive hair and skin products, they even have a dandruff line). After washing and conditioning, add several more drops of scalp oil and rub into scalp, then style as usual. If you have oily hair, make a day time hair oil with only jojoba and essential oils of choice. Jojoba should reduce your body making more oil. This is best way I can still be normal with hair care and style and not have flakes!
A fairly simple solution seemed to work for me:
In a nutshell, it involves using aloe vera to establish a healthy scalp. Once a healthy scalp has been established, it advocates an interesting way to avoid dandruff, which seems to work fairly well for me (better than anything else I have tried).
Here is the only method you will ever need to read about getting rid of dandruff permanently:
This is the quick version. If you want the detailed version, here is a short YouTube video that explains the process:
1. Switch to an organic (gentle) shampoo. There is a recipe below for mixing your own.
2. Wash your hair less often. Reduce it to 1-2 times a week max! Stop stripping the natural oils and disrupting the natural balance of your hair and scalp.
3. Always rinse with cold water. It will close the skin pores and hair cuticles leaving you a shinier, healthier head of hair.
8 ounces of Dr. Woods Pure Castile Soap (with tea tree and rosemary)
5 drops of Sage Essential Oil
5 drops of Spikenard Essential Oil
½ tsp Jojoba oil
Mix the ingredients together and allow time for them to set. Piece of cake!
LS BL Cream is the answer . I HAD a severe dandruff for a long period of time. It started on my scalp, then scattering to eyebrows, sides of the nose, cheeks, on my back, chest, and even on pubes. It made me no confidence at all socializing with people. I tried almost everything, natural and chemical. Though Head and Shoulders helps as my shampoo, I've also found out that Nizoral shampoo is effective. Recently, my sister was using this LS BL Cream for her eczema and other kinds of itches, I then checked its label and oh! It has Ketoconazole! A chemical which Nizoral has too! Then I tried it! Just in a week, I said WOW! It really is effective! I am no longer suffering on dandruff but I still use it as maintenance. What's most is that it costs quite low! Surprisingly effective, yet in a very affordable price! Last few weeks, a co-worker of mine suffers the same thing.. I then recommended it to him and he was so thankful for it. This cream is being manufactured and a product of China and is now widely distributed in the Philippines for only 25 pesos. Should there be any concerns, just PM me on
So here's a couple of ways you can get rid of dandruff.
1) Apply lemon juice on your scalp and massage it in for 5 minutes. Take a shower with anti-dandruff shampoo.
2) Apply apple cider vinegar onto your scalp and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse off and take a shower with anti-dandruff shampoo.
3) Apply hydrogen peroxide onto your scalp, leave on for 15-30 minutes (it depends on how bad the dandruff is. The worse it is, the longer you put it on) then use anti-dandruff shampoo in the shower.
4)Crush Advil in a napkin with a hammer. Mix the Advil powder with 1/2 cup of water. Apply to scalp. Leave on for 15 minuets. Shower with anti-dandruff shampoo
