    I used to get dandruff then I switched to sulfate free products like pro naturals argan oil shampoo. It’s really cleansing and moisturizing and the dandruff disappeared. Use oil treatments to condition as well, argan oil or almond oil are the best.

  2. pender says

    I have a big problem with dandruff. I have tried almost every shampoo and conditioner that I know of. I have used selsun blue, t gel, head n shoulders, and now yes to carrots. I also have a prescription shampoo that I use once a week but that is not cutting it anymore. My hair is falling out a lot. I have read all of your above tips, can I use one of them? thank you

    I always shampoo twice. When you first shampooing, leave the shampoo foam to act for five to 10 minutes and the second time wash your hair immediately. To perfect execution action shampoos, after application put a shower cap, leave it on your hair for about an hour and all rinse.

    saw this and couldn’t help but share my experience… i wanted to go bald one time so i did… when i got bald i was so shocked that there are dandruff maps on my head and i just couldn’t go out of the house sporting my bald look with it… the barber told me the easiest way to treat it is to look for some chili pepper leaves, have it boiled and blended and generously apply to the scalp… at first i was like… nah…. but then i was thinking, it’s not like it’s gonna cost me so much for those leaves and neighbors have those plants that I can just ask them with… so i did.

    At first i was worried because it may be “hot” being it known as chilli leaves but after I applied them, i didn’t feel anything. I did it for 3 days and on the 4th day, it’s gone. amazing really!

  10. says

    I was really trying my best to reduce the dandruff, its the most worst thing one could ever have. I’m really gonna follow your advices Hira, I guess for me the main reason I wasn’t consuming any fruits. Anyway, thank you very much for this insightful post :)

    • says

      we should be not washing our hairs early in the morning and late night. not good to wash your hair just before you sleep. wash your hair one hour after or before your meal. you have to give gap of minimum 2 days to get shampoo means if you shampoo on monday then you should have to wash it on thursday. don’t forget to get good massage on wednesday to prepare your hairs for shampooing.

  16. jay singh says

    which sampoo nd contioner r gud…. what can do between gap day….like u tell that if i use shampoo on monday and nxt on thursday… but what about tuesdy nd wednesdy normally wash with water or conditoner…and… how to use oil daily or day wise … pl z suggest … currently i am using sarson oil … its right ya i chnge the oil… which is best …. nd also suggest the gud sampoo nd contioner….. nd use of conditioner also…. plzzz

    • says

      You can use some herbal shampoo. Actually I don’t recommend any conditioner but apply yoghurt 30 minutes before washing your hair its best conditioner. On Tuesday or Wednesday just oiling your hair nothing else. Ya canola oil is good you can continue using it, If you wanna change just apply Kalonji oil. It’s best.

  17. jay singh says

    what is yoghurt.. ? i hve one another problem.. Actually i am facing
    hair fall, . i am using
    right now Pantene hairfall
    shampoo… … mam u r in india or outside country … u r using facebook…..

    • says

      For yoghurt ask your mom or search it on google. Stick to sulfate free shampoos to make your hair softer and healthier, look for the pro naturals Moroccan Argan oil shampoo because the oil they use is the best there is for hair. Regular Massaging with Basic Oils. Boil dried amla in coconut oil till the oil turns black in color. Massage your scalp with this oil. This is an effective and very easy home remedy to check hair loss. Use amla and shikakai powder than you can buy in Ayurvedic stores. Mix them both and make a paste. Apply this to your hair. Leave it on for a few minutes and wash off after a few minutes. Use The Himalaya anti hair fall shampoo. You can wash the hair with a paste made from Neem leaves, honey and olive oil to some cinnamon (dalchini) powder.

    for instant relief give me some natural tips ….

    • says

      Mix 1 part vinegar (apple cider vinegar is the hair care favorite, since it leaves less of an odor; white vinegar works just fine; and wine-based vinegar is best for dry hair) with 2 parts water. To minimize odor, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Use as a final rinse after you shampoo. Mix 2 egg yolks with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then dilute the mixture with about half a cup of water. Slowly, thoroughly massage the resulting mask into your scalp. After letting it set for 15-20 minutes, rinse it out as usual. You can shampoo afterward if you want to but it’s not necessary. Pick a soft, ripe banana, mask it up into a paste (use a food processor if you like, to make sure there aren’t any chunks), apply it to your hair, and cover it with a plastic cap or bag. To lock in the nutrients, either wrap a hot towel around your head or remove the cap after 20 minutes rinse well ou can also add olive oil or almond oil to your paste, or a tablespoon of conditioner. Add biotin rich foods in your diet to stop hair loss.

      Dear use neem leaves to make a paste for your hair scalp and face. Use curd and mix lemon juice and olive or almond oil. Just mix it and apply on your scalp for one hour to get rid of dandruff. Stop washing your hair every day. When you wash your hair, especially if you use a shampoo designed to cut grease, you strip away your hair’s natural oils. This causes your oil glands to go into overdrive and produce more oil than you need for a healthy scalp. To get things back on track, wash your hair no more than three times a week.Examine your hair after a week of less frequent washing. Does it stay grease free longer now? If you’re still having trouble with too much oil production, decrease washing to two times a week. A quarter-sized amount of shampoo should be sufficient. Increase it a little if you have extra long or thick hair, and decrease it to a dime-sized amount if you have thin or short hair. Don’t scrub your scalp with shampoo. You scalp does not need to be scrubbed clean; besides irritating it, scrubbing your scalp with shampoo will certainly make your oil glands overactive. Ditch the conditioner. Don’t use shampoo with sulfates. Baking soda, talcum powder and other powders are also effective for absorbing grease. Mix 2 teaspoons of gram flour and 2 spoons of homogenized or raw milk, to make a paste. You just have to use this paste whenever you wash your face.
