How To Treat Dandruff At Home | Preity Prerna

People with extreme dandruff often tend to be underconfident. They avoid wearing black clothes for fear that dandruff will fall on their shoulder and show, that even normal scratching of the head becomes tough.

Dandruff is a stubborn problem that only goes away permanently with the help of a potent remedy.

Are you someone who struggles with dandruff and has tried MANY things, but nothing works?

Your search for a permanent solution ends here! I am sharing a simple yet potent solution that will eradicate dandruff in one wash and also remove it permanently.

Table of contents:

Remedy 1: Mighty Hair Oil


The star of this remedy is mustard oil. Some people complain that mustard oil leads to more hair fall, and this can be true.

This oil is powerful, and if your scalp is not in the habit of such powerful ingredients, you will face hair fall issues on applying it.

Do not worry! You can start the application of mustard oil by infusing lighter oils like coconut oil or almond oil.

Once your scalp gets comfortable with mustard oil, you can start doing this remedy!


STEP 1: Take some mustard oil in a bowl.

STEP 2: Squeeze a lemon in it. (Yes, I know that lemon is a sturdy ingredient, but stubborn dandruff in your head is also sturdy. So to fight that stubborn dandruff, you need a capable remedy.)

STEP 3: Mix both ingredients well. These are immiscible liquids, so they will not mix entirely, but you still have to mix them well.

Your oil is ready for application!


Apply the oil to your scalp. You can apply the oil directly to the problematic parts of your scalp.

Make sure you do not use your nails, and if at all you do, be gentle. Leave the oil on your scalp for 2-3 hours and wash your hair.

Most people see the results in just one wash. This remedy is so potent that your scalp will be dandruff-free after just one application.

When Will This Remedy Not Work For You?

There are chances that your scalp will not respond to this remedy.

1]. One of the possible reasons is that the remedy is too strong for your hair, and your hair is unable to revert.

2]. The other reason is that your scalp might be facing some problematic conditions.

No need to worry! You can rectify it by adding vitamin E oil to the mix. You can add vitamin E capsules or one tablespoon of vitamin E oil or almond oil, whichever suits you well.

Keep in mind that your dandruff might return the next day (after all, it has made your head its home for several years!) No need to panic. Your scalp will be dandruff-free if you apply this oil on each of your head washes days.

Continue this remedy for three weeks for the best results! Your dandruff will run away and never EVER return!

Now, what if it still doesn't work?

The flaky white deposit on your head might not be dandruff. It can be a bacterial or fungal infection. Again I am going to say, NO NEED TO PANIC! You can easily get rid of this problem.

Remedy 2: Mighty Scalp Scrub

Yes, you can scrub your scalp, not just your face.

This scrub will help in deep cleansing your scalp, needing it to be dandruff or any deposition on your head that might clog the pores.


The ingredients in this scrub are - gram flour (besan), coffee, and multani mitti (only if you have an oily scalp).

Both gram flour and coffee are amazing for your scalp.

  • Gram flour: It will perform a cleansing action, and coffee will prevent hair loss and increase hair growth.

  • Coffee: It helps in preventing grey hair as well. Multani mitti for oily scalp will help in cleansing the oil.


STEP 1: In a bowl, add one tablespoon of gram flour and one tablespoon of coffee.

You need one tablespoon of gram flour and one tablespoon of coffee.

You can add Multani mitti if your scalp is oily, otherwise, you can skip this ingredient.

STEP 2: Mix all the ingredients well, and your scrub is ready!


Step one is detangling your hair. Part your hair and comb them thoroughly.

After detangling and parting your hair, spray either rose water (if you get hard water in your locality) or tap water if you get soft water in your taps.

To apply the scrub to your scalp, you can use a powder container that has a sprinkler top. It will be easier to sprinkle the product directly on your scalp.

But, if you do not have that kind of container, you can use your hands. Start by applying the scrub on your parting.

Since the scrub is powdery, spray rose water over it so that it settles on your scalp. Apply the scrub on your entire scalp and start scrubbing gently.

Avoid using your nails or use them gently to avoid damage to the scalp. After gently and thoroughly scrubbing your scalp, tie your hair up and leave it for 2 minutes.

This scrub is water soluble, so when you wash your hair, it will melt and wash off without any hustle. Do not forget to shampoo your hair after washing off the scrub.

After drying your hair, comb deeply to remove any leftover granules.

You will notice that whatever deposition you had on your scalp has vanished! Have you seen the lustrous hair of the models in a shampoo advertisement? That is the kind of result I am talking about!

After this process, you will be eligible to do the earlier-mentioned mustard oil remedy or any other remedy of your choice!

Your hair will respond positively to all the remedies you do in the future. So now is the time to give yourself the gift of a healthy, dandruff-free scalp.
