5 Natural Remedies to Treat Dandruff

Dandruff is the most common hair problem. What all know it, and we don't even need a statistician for that. But wonder what causes it? Dandruff is basically caused by flaking of skin tissues on the scalp. White flakes start appearing over the scalp and the hair strands and as the flakes grow in number, it becomes evident to naked eye.

This is actually a natural process of removal of the dead cells; the scalp peels off over a period of time. This is also the reason for dryness and itchiness on the scalp. Which in turn leads to the dead skin cells accumulating into visible flakes.

Here are a few effective remedies for dandruff free scalp,

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has cooling properties. Use of Aloe Vera gel helps to calm down the irritated scalp and provide relief from the inflammation. It moisturizes the scalp, stimulates growth of new cells and thus helps in maintaining an healthy scalp. For best results, leave the gel overnight on the scalp.



Garlic is immensely beneficial as an anti-fungal natural product. The benefits of raw or crushed garlic are used for centuries. Pound a few cloves of garlic and after mixing with water, use it on your scalp to see quick results, garlic has hair strengthening properties too.
