Dandruff is the skin`s reaction to the alkalinity of hard water, soap, and shampoo. Use a teaspoon of vinegar in your rinse water, and you will never have dandruff again. Do not use Head and Shoulders. It is terribly harsh and dries out the skin.
I have used this remedy for 45 years after having suffered with dandruff all my life before that.
I also use vinegar in a squirt bottle after washing my hands, especially after working in the garden. This is a potter`s trick. Clay is very drying. I never use lotion on my hands or any other part of my body. Lotions don`t work anyway. Vingar does. Vinegar is also my only deodorant. The bacteria causing body odor only exist at a certain pH. The vinegar changes that, and it is more pleasant than baking soda which is drying like Head and Shoulders.
The best vinegar, of course, is raw apple cider vinegar, but any vinegar will work. Lemon juice works, too, but is way too expensive.
I just thought I would pass this home remedy on after reading all the dandruff advice at Yahoo Answers.
