Best way to deal with Dandruff?? {DIY}

So, yes, I know most of you are facing this problem right now or would be in the coming subsequent months of August-September depending on when monsoons hit your town. So, be armed with this simple DIY to get rid of dandruff. 

  • Apple Cider Vinegar / Fruit Vinegar / Vinegar
  • Water
Add 2 tablespoon water and 1 tablespoon vinegar in a bowl and take a cotton and apply it to your scalp half hour before you shampoo your hair. To avoid dryness (vinegar is acidic so drying for scalp), you can apply this treatment on well-oiled hair. Do this every time you are going to shampoo. This helps with long standing issues of dandruff too. 
Remember the Kamini aunty treatment? Yes, it involves this ginger hair tonic which I had told you was ginger infused in vinegar. My mom has even prepared the dupe for it 😀 We are calling it dupe coz the actual treatment might have other additives. I shall share it soon :) Till then, let this treatment help ya!!

    during the countless number of times i have got it into my eyes during the hair rinse, i always thought i am gonna go blind..

    • says

      whoa!!! that’s bad!! then, I think that kamini treatment is way more diluted i guess coz it makes my eyes water and sting a bit but not that blinding sting!!!
      btw, where do you use ACV??

    • Pranali says

      after washing my hair, i take them all in the front and then pour the diluted acv and if am not careful it does go in my eyes! will change the acv brand and see too…

    • says

      ohk!!! why don’t you try mixing a spoon of acv with shampoo and washing your hair with it??? that way hopefully it will not go into the eyes!!! I am gonna try that next time :)

Please guide what would be done for Oily Scalp and to reduce the Thinness if Hair ??

      i would suggest you to ash your hair on alternate days….its safe for hair as well. excess of oiliness leads to dry scalp and dandruff so you need to keep the scalp clean. and, you can apply henna on your hair to control the oil.
      for hair growth, you can check the hair growth section in hair care on categories page (on top of the page in navigation bar).

    I have serious problem of dandruff, and because of this hairfall.
    I tried Dr. Batra Ayurvedic treatment already, but for me it is of no use.
    I also cut down all the hair, but even after that, dandruff is coming from the skin.
    It also cause acne problem for me.
    I already used so many allopathic treatment but didn’t help.

    If its continue like this…i am going to bald very soon.
    So please tel me what would be the best solution for me, please help.

      hi Swathi. postpartum hair loss is very common. do not worry much about it. be happy and enjoy with your baby. after a few months, everything would settle down. in the meantime, just be sure you take healthiest and balanced meals. hope this helps :)
