LEMON lemon   The acidity of freshly squeezed lemon juice helps break down fungus that is often the cause of dandruff. Massage 2 tablespoons of lemon into your scalp. Leave it in your scalp for about 2 mins. It will sting. Mix 1 teaspoon of lemon with 1 cup of water and rinse your hair with it. Repeat daily until no longer needed. You can also squeeze an entire lemon into a bowl and mix with 5-10 tablespoons of coconut oil. Massage the mixture into your scalp and leave it in for 20-30mins and rinse with a mild shampoo. Repeat this once or twice a week. TEA TREE OIL Tea tree oil has been medically proven to be a natural anti-fungal and functions as a good disinfectant. After shampooing your hair, mix 1 tablespoon of tea tree oil into 1 cup of warm water or aloe vera juice.  Spray into your scalp and let it sit for a few minutes. Pat the extra moisture out, but do not wash the mixture out of your hair. tea tree oil BAKING SODA Baking soda kills fungus and gently exfoliates the scalp of excess dead skin. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1 cup of warm water or 2 tablespoons with 2 cups of warm water. Use an applicator bottle or clean empty shampoo bottle and apply the mix to your hair and scalp. Shake well before use. Use this in place of shampoo and rinse as normal. Use a light moisturizer like jojoba oil afterwards. Repeat this once a week. Baking soda SALT Salt is a natural exfoliator and gets rid of extra oils and dead skin flakes. Rubbing it on your scalp will also help soothe the itchy feeling. Gently massage the 3 tablespoons of salt into your scalp while its dry or slightly damp for 2-mins. Shampoo immediately afterwards. You can repeat this process once a week.

Fish oils are also essential for beautiful hair and skin, taking Omega 3,6 and 9 supplements will not cure dandruff but will reduce the severity. Consider adding lean proteins like fish, eggs, nuts and beans to your diet.
