Dandruff is a headache for most of us, but you don’t have to panic if you have it, as it is a common problem for more than half of the people in the entire world. Why do we get dandruff? The old skin cells are dying and is naturally replaced with new ones. While this process is normal, when it gets accelerated the dead skin cells become more visible than usual, so we should just balance the process in order to get rid of dandruff. Even though the dandruff is associated with an oily hair, the scalp is actually too dry, so it is not recommended to use shampoos for oily hair or other products that will make your scalp dry, because it will only get worse.

Step 2: Massaging the scalp in the shower
For this step, you will need:
• 2 teaspoons of baking soda
• One teaspoon of non-iodized salt
Mix the baking soda and salt with enough water to create a paste. Remove the mixture you previously applied on your hair with a mild shampoo and apply the new one on your scalp, massaging for five minutes. Shampoo your hair once or twice, until you feel it completely clean. You can also use conditioner.
Step 3: Rinsing the hair
For the last step, you will need:
• One liter of warm water
• 4 tablespoons of vinegar
After you rinsed your hair properly with water in the previous step, mix the vinegar with the water for the final rinsing. Do not use water from the shower again after the final step and don’t worry about the vinegar smell, it will go away fast.
