1. Baking Soda

Baking soda is a mild, natural exfoliant that helps remove those dead skin cells from your scalp—while also absorbing excess oil. Plus, it helps to balance ph levels on the scalp, and its anti-fungal properties help reduce itchiness and redness on your scalp.

All you need to do is wet your hair and rub a handful of baking soda right on the scalp. Let it sit for 20 minutes, and rinse it off with water. Repeat this treatment for 2-3 days a week, and you'll start noticing oil and flake-free hair in the next15 days.

2. Tea-Tree Oil

This is one of the most easiest hacks to get dandruff-free hair in a jiff! Tea tree oil helps to fight bacterial infections, and deeply moisturises the scalp. Adding a few drops of it to your regular shampoo, and normally washing it off can give you lustrous, and dandruff-free tresses without you making any extra effort!

Bonus: added it to facepack for fabulous, glowing skin!

3. White Vinegar

Acetic acid being one of the key ingredients, white vinegar is pretty effective at fighting dandruff and itching. How do you use it? Simply mix equal quantities of water and vinegar in a bowl, and massage this mixture onto your scalp. Let it sit for half an hour, and rinse it with a mild shampoo.

4. Fenugreek 

Fenugreek is rich in amino acids and lecithin (a natural emollient) that promotes hair growth, and fights off dandruff as well. 

Start out by soaking 2-3 tablespoons of fenugreek in a cup of water overnight. Grind them into a fine paste the next morning, and apply it onto your scalp, leaving it there for about 30-45 minutes. Wash it off with a mild shampoo, and you'll notice results from the very first application. 

5. Aspirin

Aspirin isn't just a saviour when you're down with a headache, it also works as a great home-remedy for dandruff! It contains a large percentage of Salicylic acid, which contains anti-microbial properties, and is also an active ingredient in anti-dandruff shampoos.

Simply crush two aspirin tablets into a fine powder, and add it to your regular shampoo. Make sure you leave this mixture on your hair for two minutes, and then, rinse it completely off. Voila!
