Winter Is Here So Is Dandruff!!

Don’t just run to a store to pick an anti-dandruff shampoo or medication. Not yet. If you can rid of dandruff naturally, then using chemicals to treat the same doesn’t make sense.

Winters bring out the worst of dandruff for some. Because those dry skin flakes find it ideal to populate and shed with winter dryness. But there could be other accompanying reasons as well.

Dandruff, medically known as seborrhoea is caused when a type of fungus called Malassezia begins to grow on your scalp. This causes severe scalp dryness and flaking off the skin. This white, grey, and yellow skin sheds, exacerbated by itching on the scalp, often with embarrassing results. The fallen flakes also cause redness and small bumps on your face, thus adding to your woes. Interestingly, dryness is not always the culprit. There is another type of dandruff wherein your scalp begins producing more oil, the dandruff as a result appears to be sticky and oily.

If the conditions are not severe, simple home remedies can help deal with dandruff as effectively as anti-dandruff shampoos and medications. Here are some remedies that you can try at home, before deciding to rush to your dermatologist.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar can be very effective in treating dandruff. Simply, add some apple cider vinegar to water (Equal parts). Apply the mix to your wet hair. Gently massage your hair with the mix, to allow it to reach your scalp and roots. Leave for 15 minutes and then rinse it off.

It’s effective, but one shouldn’t overdo it, which means not doing it every day. A couple of times per week may be.


Along with keeping your hair healthy and shiny, mehndi can cure dandruff when prepared right. First and foremost is to get your hands on organic and all-natural mehndi. Yes, there are chemical-based and counterfeits.

Mix the natural mehndi powder in warm water till it’s curd thick. Then, mix mehndi with curd and a little bit of lemon juice. Keep the mixture aside for 8 hours to allow it to form into a paste. Apply it to your hair and scalp.

Coconut Oil with Lemon

Coconut oil is great for your hair and skin for a great many reasons. We won’t go there but just stick to dandruff now. Instead of applying it to your hair directly, heat it a little and add a dash of lemon. Massage it gently on your scalp and hair. Let it stay for a while and do bear with a burning sensation that you might experience on your scalp. 

Fenugreek Seeds

Then mash the seeds to a paste-like substance and apply it onto your scalp and hair and leave it to dry for 30 minutes.


Curd applied to your hair makes it very effective for dandruff. Apply it directly to your hair and scalp. You can also mix curd with lemon, honey and coconut oil and use it thus.


You probably knew this one. Haven’t we seen our grandparents extoll the virtue of this leaf and also use it for various things? It’s great for the skin. We all know that. For dandruff, it’s equally good. Crush the leaves till it forms a thick paste. And apply the paste on your hair and even your face if you wish to. Rinse off after some time.

Orange Peel

Orange peel is known to contain calcium, magnesium, vitamin A, and dietary fibers. To use it as a cure for dandruff, grind the orange peel with lemon juice. Then apply the paste to your scalp and let it dry for 30 minutes. You can wash it away with some anti-dandruff shampoo.


Garlic has antifungal properties that help deal with microbes and fungi. Apply garlic paste on your scalp and let it stay for 15 to 20 minutes. Wash your hair afterward.

This list is definitely not exhaustive. But it was to point you toward a healthier and more natural way of dealing with common hair problems. Most anti-dandruff shampoo suppresses the problem, which means the problem often resurfaces with the onset of winter.

Because of the varying types of dandruff and its causes, it’s important to find out the cause to arrive at a proper solution. For instance, dandruff could be the result of a hormonal imbalance or stress. In view of this, homeopathy can be a great way to deal with dandruff.

Homeopathic treatment for dandruff is holistic, and it targets the root cause, as opposed to the symptoms. The good part is, homeopathy medicines are prepared from root extracts, herbs, and natural materials, which makes them free of any side effects. For treating dandruff, homeopathy follows a well-planned and systematic treatment method to activate the body’s natural healing capacity to make the scalp healthy and restore the disturbed immune system to reduce the multiplication of cells and flaking.

Typical dandruff treatment in homeopathy starts with a homeopathic doctor identifying the root cause by accounting for a patient’s personality, hereditary, emotional well-being, & more.

After taking into account all the modalities of the patient a homeopathic treatment plan is suggested to the concerned individual. Besides the white pills, there are homeopathy-based shampoos and oils to help maintain scalp health.

A well-selected homeopathy remedy helps eliminate recurring dandruff and hair fall problems.
