5 Natural ways to Get Rid of Dandruff

Ever since I was a kid I suffered from Dandruff. I tried almost every commercial remedy available on the market but none of them work. It took me more than 5 years to finally find something that not only works but is also completely natural and safe. And now I can present to you 5 natural ways to get rid of dandruff:
1 Rub Vitamin E Into Your Scalp
A little known method to easily get rid of dandruff is to take a vitamin E capsule, burst it and rub it’s contents into your scalp. Alternatively you can just use vitamin E oil.
2 Apply Aloe Vera Gel To Your Head
Aloe Vera has been used by indigenous tribes to cure dandruff for centuries. And recently peer-reviewed studies confirmed what our forefathers knew all along. Namely that aloe vera is one of the safest and most effective natural skin remedies in existence.
The main problem with using aloe vera is that a lot of the times many companies use pesticides and other dangerous chemicals to grow it. That’s why it’s important to look for brands that use organic ingredients. In my personal opinion Aubrey produces the best aloe vera gel in existence
To use it to clear your dandruff simply apply it all over your head and let it set for about 5 minutes. Then shampoo and rinse.
But then comes the question of shampoo
3 Avoid Commercial Dandruff Shampoos
To eliminate dandruff: Commercial dandruff shampoos, which are often harsh, tend to irritate the scalp while temporarily removing dandruff. The scalp, in response, produces more oil to protect itself. That’s why I recommend soothing shampoos with either promise oil or soap bark
You can also upgrade their dandruff-fighting properties by mashing 30 aspirin tablets and letting them dissolve in either one of the before mentioned shampoos
4 Fight dandruff Using a Homemade Tea Tree Dandruff Shampoo
This homemade shampoo works well for all hair types and addresses many causes of scalp irritation and flakes, including fungal overgrowth, product build-up, and excess oils. Use it no more than once per week, and follow up with a conditioner (Just on the hair not the scalp) to keep your hair moisturized afterward. Since this shampoo isn’t foamy like a traditional shampoo, I always apply it with a spray bottle that I keep in the shower.
To make it I use 
half a cup of apple cider vinegar and half a cup of warm filtered water.
1 Tbsp of baking soda
5 drops of tea tree oil
Mix all ingredients into a spray bottle and swirl gently. That’s all there is to it!
5. When Shampoo is Not An Option There’s Always an Alternative
When shampooing is not an option use either 2 tablespoons of cornstarch or 1 tablespoon of talcum powder and brush through the hair.
At Aubrey Organics we believe great ingredients make great products. This is the simple philosophy at the heart of the pioneering personal care company Aubrey Hampton founded over 40 years ago.
