Vinegar and Baking Soda for Dandruff


Has anyone ever tried scrubbing your scalp with baking soda followed with a vinegar rinse for dandruff? Would the chemical reaction harm your scalp?

Using vinegar on your scalp really does help with dandruff. I use to have it bad and I would use this maybe once or twice a week and it worked. Of course, shampoo after with something that smells good because the vinegar does not have a pleasant smell.

Both are extremely mild and will not hurt you. However, if you're going to try using them together, better do it in the shower since they'll fizz and probably drip all over the place. That way, if it gets to be too much, you can turn the water on and rinse.

I haven't tried the remedy, but have used white vinegar as a rinse to get out product, it brings out red highlights in dark hair.
