Dandruff is very common problem and all of us suffer from it atleast once in life. This article will discuss some home treatments to get rid of dandruff.

1. Use shampoos: There are several ways to cure dandruff. One of them is to use anti-dandruff shampoos. However, not all anti-dandruff shampoos will help. Make sure your shampoo contains all these ingredients: coal tar, salicylic acid, pyrithione zinc, and sulfur or selenium sulfide. Each of these ingredients is vital for curing dandruff. More often than not you will encounter anti-dandruff shampoos which have more than one ingredient. The only way to know which anti-dandruff shampoos are best for you is by trial-and-error.

Here is a good way to use anti-dandruff shampoos. First wash your scalp thoroughly, then apply shampoo on the scalp, then let the shampoo remain on your scalp for about five minutes. Then rinse your scalp thoroughly.

2. Another way to cure dandruff is by using yogurt. Before using yogurt, you should rinse your hair thoroughly and then apply yogurt on your scalp and let it sit there for at least ten to fifteen minutes. Then wash the scalp using as little shampoo as needed. You can use an infusion of thyme, nettle or sage with 2 tablespoons of vinegar as a final rinse.

3. If neither of these remedies works for you, you can turn to homeopathy. Homeopathy has really some good medicines which will help you to cure dandruff. You can use medicines such as rsenicum, sepia, sulfur, mezereum, fluoric ac., graphites, oleander and nartrum mur; however I would recommend that you consult with a homeopath before using any of these medicines.

4. There are some good herbal remedies to cure dandruff as well. One herbal treatment that was invented in South Africa is this: mix borax (one of the fresh roots of the wild scabious) with an infusion in boiling water. This will create a paste for you. Just rub the paste on your scalp once a week and you will be able to cure dandruff fast.
