How to Cure Dandruff Problem Through Home Remedies

Dandruff is an extremely common problem, though that doesn’t make it any less annoying. Dandruff is actually a scalp disorder called seborrheic dermatitis and it is caused when a yeast-like fungus, malassezia, grows out of control. Malassezia actually occurs naturally on the human scalp, living off of the fatty oils produced by hair follicles. Scientists don’t yet know what causes malassezia to suddenly start growing wildly, but when it does, it causes irritation that speeds of the process of skin cell shedding that normally takes place over the course of a month. It causes so many dead skin cells at one time that they clump together with the body’s oils and form masses that are large enough to be seen by the unclad eye. Of course, the question is “How do I get rid of it?” Luckily, there are several home remedies that can solve your flaking problems.



Tea Tree Oil

As an antifungal and antiseptic, tea tree oil is a proven remedy for dandruff. You can purchase dandruff shampoo that contains tea tree oil, but nothing works better than the actual oil by itself (plus, it’s usually cheaper). To use, massage tea tree oil into your scalp (make sure it gets to the scalp and not just in your hair) and let it sit there for 30 minutes before shampooing. With frequent usage, you should see a reduction not only in dandruff but the side effects associated with it, such as itchiness, greasiness, and scaliness.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera has antibacterial and antifungal qualities that fight dandruff. It also breaks down proteins, most notably in this case, dead skin cells. By reducing the amount of dead skin cells, aloe vera reduces the amount of dead skin clumps that constitute dandruff. Use aloe vera juice or gel in your hair regularly, making sure to massage into the scalp. Leave it in your hair for at least 15 minutes, then wash it with a mild shampoo.

Thyme

Thyme is another substance that is both an antifungal and an antiseptic. However, it differs from the previous two remedies in that it is not an oil, but an herb. To use thyme as a hair treatment, mix 4 tablespoons of dried thyme in 2 cups of water, boil it for 10 to 15 minutes, strain it, and let it cool. Then massage it into the scalp, let it sit for a several minutes, then rinse your hair well.
