What is a natural treatment for dandruff?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
The key to treating dandruff is to keep the scalp very clean and to avoid irritating shampoos and hair products. You can also create a scalp-conditioning mask using fenugreek seeds. Soak two tablespoons overnight and then grind them into a paste. Massage the mixture into your scalp and let sit for an hour. Shampoo your hair and rinse with one fresh tablespoon of lime juice mixed with water.
