Dandruff is a condition of the scalp that causes flakes of skin to appear and causes itching, common but not easy to treat. One can categorise the condition as mild, mediocre and chronic.

There are several home remedies one can try. Home Remedies: You can start by using a mild shampoo and figure what works best for you. Two Aspirin tablets may be powdered and used with mild shampoo or salt as a scalp scrub before shampooing, baking soda also helps. Lime can help reduce itchiness. But this may initially dry the scalp. It takes around 4 weeks for any visible changes of improvement. If you feel there is no improvement / if things seem to get worse it is always better to consult a dermatologist / consultant for investigating whether it is fungus, or bacteria. Shampoos containing Zinc Pyrithione take care of fungus and bacteria, selenium sulphide slows the growth of cells that flake the scalp, while salicylic acid loosens them, ketoconazole fights fungus. If you visit a dermatologist, failing improvement or as caution, you may be treated for seborrheic dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis.
