1. Baking soda
Baking soda can go to work combating your dandruff in two ways. First, as a gentle exfoliant that can remove unwanted flakes from your scalp, and second, as an antifungal that cuts down on the source of these flakes.
One study found that baking soda was able to stop fungal growth for 79% of the types they tested, and reduce growth by another 17%. It also reduced itchiness and irritation in people with psoriasis. In an empty shampoo bottle or small mason jar, mix 4 tablespoons baking soda with ¾ cups of water.
For a pleasant scent and additional benefits, add a few drops of lavender or tea tree pure essential oil. Shake well until a semi-viscous paste is formed. In the shower, apply the baking soda paste to dry or wet hair. Start at the roots and work the paste all the way through to the ends. Let the mixture sit for one to three minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
