Very often our hair leaves much to be desired. Apart from not being long, shiny and healthy, there is something else – dandruff. Of course these days, it is not that great of a problem because you can go to the store and purchase some anti-dandruff products. But, we think that instead of wasting your money, you can refer to some cheaper, but just as effective means.

We have gathered a list of 8 home remedies that will help you fight dandruff off and regain your confidence. We say – regain – since dandruff is one of those things that makes you feel unconfident and shy. Once you are done with it, you can live a happy, confident, dandruff-free life! We hope you find these tips useful!

#7 Salt

This one may sound weird, but salt has great exfoliating powers and while you get rid of dead skin cells, you may get rid of dandruff altogether.

#8 Baking soda

This one is pretty effective against dandruff too. Just wet your hair a little and rub some baking soda in, let it sit for about 2 minutes and then wash your hair.
