Put herbs in a Pyrex (or other heatproof) bowl or casserole dish. Then add 2/3 cups boiling water and cover. Let sit for 15 minutes and then strain the mixture, ou can use cheesecloth to strain. Gunnel the liquid into a bottle with a tight fitting lid and add the cider vinegar. Shake well. Massage a small amount into your hair after you shampoo.
I am looking for a home remedy for getting rid of dandruff. Any suggestions?
Maybe because dandruff shampoo is almost 4.00 a bottle.

How do I get rid of dandruff?
By sprinkl77 from Buena Vista
Try citric acid! I used vinegar (distilled white) for two years and it worked great for me. I don't even use dandruff shampoo anymore. I have an oily scalp so the dandruff is most likely caused by a yeast infection. I recently switched to using a citric acid solution since it has no odor. After shampooing I spray on the solution and massage into my scalp. I bought a bottle of dry powder at Nature's Outlet and mixed it one tablespoon per eight ounces. I have no idea if that is the same pH as vinegar but it is acidic enough to control the dandruff. Since citric acid is odorless, I don't rinse it out. Citric acid is an ingredient in some of the dandruff shampoos.
Tips and ideas for treating dandruff. Post your ideas.
So, there is no permanent cure for dandruff??
I went to a dermatologist, she gave me a coupple of spcial shampoos + Foam spray, it works fine for that period, but the minute, I stop using the foam, I get it back again...
How do I get rid of dandruff?
Try Listerine. Yes, the mouthwash; and I mean that mediciney amber colored one, not the mint flavored. The store brand works just as well. It was sold as a dandruff remedy and topical antiseptic when it first hit the market. Use an applicator bottle to apply to the scalp and let it sit on the scalp for at least 20 minutes, then shampoo as normal. Do this several days in a row, until it clears up. You should also sanitize any combs, brushes, etc. every time you use them until it is completely gone.
I have used vinegar but my dandruff is still there. I also have heavy hair loss. One of my friends suggested that I take vitamin and calcium capsules. Will that help me stop the hair loss. Are there any other ways to get the rid of dandruff? Please help.
This is through experience, lather your scalp with castor oil during the day and wash if you want before going to bed and repeat this process, it may take you a week or so and trust me, it works like magic.
I am having a dandruff problem. Does anyone know any conventional treatment? I tried all kinds of shampoos, both medicated and commercialized. I also tried using cream with cortisone, but it did not help at all.

The shampoos are: Selsun Blue (selenium sulfide), Denorex (salicylic acid),T-Gel (coal tar extract) and Head and Shoulders (Pyrithione zinc). Generic store brands are OK as long as you are sure of the main ingredient. I bought a bottle of each and and labeled them 1, 2, 3, and 4. That way I don't have to worry about which one I need to use on a particular day. I bought the large bottles and it cost close to $30.00, but that was almost a year ago and I still have plenty left. Also, don't use conditioner on your scalp. This schedule has worked wonders for me. I noticed an improvement in less than a week. Good luck. (08/08/2005)

You will discover amazing results over a week. Also watch out of your eating habits. Avoid eating oily and fried food, get enough sleep (at least 8 hours a day), drink plenty of water. By following the steps above, your dandruff will be gone forever. Don't believe me, wait till you try it. (12/28/2007)
If you have dandruff or flaking, and don't want to spend lots of dollars on dandruff shampoos, just add a plain aspirin with your regular dollop of shampoo, suds it in, and watch the flakes disappear. It really works!
