The one home remedy that's very popular and seems to be very effective is just a mixture of half vinegar, using ideally, apple cider vinegar,

Dandruff is that white, flaky stuff that falls from your scalp, is very embarrassing, and plagues millions of Americans.
What this is is it's caused by either bacteria or yeast that live in the scalp and they feed on the sebum,
or the fatty, oily substance produced by the scalp. Of course, there are many commercial products
and shampoos that you can use to try to control dandruff, and even some prescription products. But one home remedy that's very popular
and seems to be very effective is just a mixture of half vinegar, using, ideally, apple cider vinegar, but regular vinegar works as well,
and half water. To do this, put it in a spray bottle, spray your scalp thoroughly, massage it in really well,
just like you would do a shampoo. And then the trick is to wrap a towel like a turban on your hair for about 20 minutes,
leave it in, and then shower and shampoo as you normally would.
This should show results within the first three days. And then just for maintenance, you can do it about twice a week.
