Try this to cure dandruff


                  Dandruff is a common complaint,especially in the winters.
Since most people wash their hair with warm water during the winter season, this often causes the scalp to become dry and flaky. Below are the home remedies you could try to get rid of dry as well as sticky dandruff:
  • Soak two tablespoons of fenugreek (methi) seeds in water overnight. Grind into a fine paste in the morning, apply on the scalp and leave for half an hour. Wash off, preferably with a soap-nut (ritha) solution. Use the water in which the seeds were soaked as an after-shower hair tonic. Follow this regimen twice a week for the first two weeks and once a week for another two weeks.
  • Squeeze a teaspoon of fresh lime juice into the last rinse while washing your hair.
  • Make a paste of lemon juice and fuller's earth and apply this mixture to the scalp once a week.
  • Keep curd in the open for three days and massage your hair with it for half an hour before washing.
  • Mix cider vinegar with equal quantities of water and dab onto the scalp with cotton wool before washing.
I myself have tried the methi and lemon one and it has helped me with my dandruff problems.
