Dandruff is the last thing I want to see, but it happens. My bouts of dandruff usually happen during winter, caused by the general dryness that sends me hunting lotion, on a regular basis. I’m more concerned if dandruff develops during the warmer seasons because fungus is usually the cause. I tried special shampoos, but found they made matters worse. Yes, my scalp tingled but, other than that, the dandruff remained. Fortunately, I discovered two effective home remedies for dandruff.
Find an Old Fashion Mouthwash
You can’t use just any mouthwash, and using it in your mouth won’t treat dandruff. You need a mouthwash containing alcohol. Simply shampoo your hair as you usually do, then rinse your hair with the alcohol mouthwash. Rinse the mouthwash away, then use your regular conditioner. I can almost see the little question marks appear over your head, but the alcohol in mouthwash keeps fungus, a common cause of warm weather dandruff, from growing! Use the alcohol mouthwash rinse every time you wash your hair, until your dandruff disappears. Each case of dandruff is different, so you’ll need to use your own good judgement to determine how long you’ll need to use it.
Taking Care of The Itch
Dandruff flakes are embarrassing, but the itching is terrible. Instead of trying to use the ends of pencils to scratch your scalp,hopefully unnoticed, break open an aloe vera leaf and massage the gel-like fluid on your scalp, then leave it for 20 minutes. It soothes, has antibacterial properties, and promotes healing.
These remedies are less expensive than many of the medicated shampoos on the market Used faithfully, your dandruff should clear up before you know it!
