It is never nice to have dandruff especially when it can be visible for others to see.  It is also often accompanied by an itchy scalp. Bicarbonate of soda is a particularly powerful ally that can be used to shampoo your hair without any other ingredient to help combat dandruff.  This treatment couldn’t be any simpler!  Who said that homemade remedies have to be complicated and with a list of ingredients as long as your arm? As the saying goes, the simpler the better!  Here is how to get started…  

What you need:

  • A tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda  (or sodium as it is the same thing)

The steps:

1) Wet your hair well.

2) Apply the bicarbonate of soda onto your wet hair and start to softly massage your scalp. This is the affected zone that needs to be treated.

3) Leave in your hair for a minute and then rinse.

4) If you think your hair needs it, you can wash your hair again this time with a little conditioner.

It won’t take long for you to see results as this remedy helps to hydrate your scalp by secreting natural oils.  This is why it can get rid of dandruff.

Good to know: Don’t repeat this process more than once per week as it could dry out your hair!
