Best Inexpensive Treatment For Dandruff?

  • Sharebar

all the anti dandruff shampoo’s are so expensive and they have never worked for me anyway. Im a poor student so would love to hear any alternative remedies that really work. I wash my hair every 2-3 days and drink loads of water so my skin is quite hydrated, but my dandruff has gotten noticably worse recently.
Im living in Ireland so if anyone knows any cheap products that work, that you can get here would be great!
thanks a lot in advance

    I’m not going to answer your question directly, but just point out that in my experience, it was the other shampoos that were CAUSING my dandruff. As far as I could work out, it was those shampoos with a lot of perfume, bright colours and natural-sounding ingredients that caused the worst dandruff.
    I always use anti-dandruff shampoo nowadays (which, you may notice, don’t have a strong perfume), but if you can’t afford them, maybe just try changing your normal brand of shampoo. That might be all it needs.

    Check that it is actually dandruff, people can often get mistaken, dandruff is really thick and horrible and it actually caused by an oily scalp, so check your regular shampoo and conditioner that it isn’t to oily.
    Those small little white flakes that you get on your scalp and through your hair aren’t really considered ‘real’ dandruff, but it a form. Believe it or not that is caused by dry scalp, so try a good moisturising treatment, it might just work the trick. If no, just shop around :)
    Good luck x

    they say the peppermint can do miracles and remove dandruff:…
    also, they say you should change back your shampoo and use one that has these ingedients:
    Zinc pyrithione (Head & Shoulders classic, Pert Plus dandruff control)
    Ketoconazole (Nizoral AntiDandruff shampoo)
    Selenium sulfide(Selsun blue, Head & Shoulders Intensive)
    Coal tar(Ionil-T, Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic)
    Salicylic acid

  4. head and shoulders ususally is not that expensive. Do you comb through your hair while you are washing it? Try that. After you’ve massaged the shampoo for a while, comb through just before you rinse it out. You can also comb while rinsing, however I reccoment for sure that you comb before and after you rinse your hair.

    Juice of 1 lime mixed in a mug of water for the last rinse, while washing the hair, is an useful remedy. This removes the stickiness and prevents dandruff. More simple remedies for dandruff at
