It might work but vinegar does have an unpleasant odor so rinse well.

Put Tea Tree oil in your shampoo, and wash your hair with that every time you get a shower, and that will get rid of the dandruff! and it leaves your head feeling tingly clean! :)
I tried every shampoo with a different active ingredient I could find and nothing worked. Now I use Hollywood brand Tea Tree Oil in a hair coloring bottle so that I can apply it to the roots of my hair. It's the only thing that works, and it does work. The Hollywood brand doesn't have an offensive odor. Still, I prefer to do this at night and wash my hair in the morning or you may get stained shirt collars.
If you use Selson Blue for a week your dandruff will be gone in most cases. Some dandruff is caused by dry scalp but most is caused by a mild form of yeast which the shampoo gets rid of.
I like to wash my hair with a paste made of baking soda and water, just rubbed into the roots, then I condition with apple cider vinegar. If I want to remove dandruff, I get a stalk of rosemary or lavender, put it in a jar and pour boiling apple cider over it. I leave it overnight then after washing, flick my head upside down, pour it all over my hair (avoiding the eyes) catching it in the bowl, then repeat. Do not rinse out. It doesn't smell like vinegar when it dries and feels amazing. I'll never buy shampoo or conditioner again.

I have a dry flaky scalp even after I wash it with shampoo and conditioner. A lot of people here suggest vinegar. But I was wondering what kind of vinegar? There's apple cider vinegar and white vinegar. How should I use it?
Most dandruff was gone after ten days. (11/12/2008)
