Natural remedies for dandruff in men

While women suffer from dandruff problems because of an oily scalp, chemically exposed hair etc. men mostly suffer from dry dandruff problems because of environmental pollutants. Since men are comparatively more exposed to the environment than women, they are more prone to dirt, smoke and other hazards which affect their scalp’s health.

Treating dandruff with natural ingredients will give maximum benefits than going in for chemical treatments that are offered at salons for the most expensive budgets.

Natural remedies for dandruff in men
  • Mix in fine powdered pepper corns to a tablespoon of thick curds. Apply this mixture on your scalp and leave it on for 30-40 minutes before you rinse it out with a mild shampoo. Let your hair naturally dry after the wash. Avoid hair dryers.
  • Olive oil is the next savior. You can either opt to massage your scalp with warm olive oil the previous night and let your hair soak in the oil before you wash it out the next morning. If you don’t prefer staying with oil overnight, apply warm olive oil to your scalp, give your scalp a massage and wrap around a warm turkey towel on your hair. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash your hair with a mild shampoo.
  • You can also opt for the ‘in-trend’ apple cider vinegar. Massage cider vinegar into your scalp and leave it on for 15 minutes before washing your hair. You can also opt to mix a teaspoon of this vinegar to your last cup of water for best results.
  • Baking soda is well-known to act against fungal infections. Add a teaspoon of baking soda to your shampoo and wash your hair off. If you had a flaky scalp, you can get rid of it with this method in just one wash.
  • In coconut oil, stir in a few drops of lemon juice and apply this oil to your scalp and massage. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then wash your hair off to see dandruff free hair.
  • The next moisturizer which will drive away your dandruff is aloe vera. Apply the gel of a freshly scooped out aloe leaf and massage it onto your scalp, leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash off your hair for best results.
  • The next best solution is neem leaves. Boil neem leaves in water and make a paste of the boiled neem leaves. Squeeze in a few lemon drops to the paste and apply it on your scalp. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes before you wash it off with warm water and a mild shampoo.
  • In four parts of sesame oil, mix in a few drops of ginger juice. For fresh ginger juice extracts, peel and grate an inch of ginger, and put the grated ginger into a cheese cloth. Press the ginger with your fingers and the juice will flow out of the cheese cloth. Mix it with sesame oil, apply this to your scalp and leave it on for 30-40 minutes before washing your hair.
