You Will Need

  * Two aspirin

  * Baking soda
  * A saltshaker
  * Salt
  * Dandruff shampoo
  * A dermatologist
  * Relaxation
  * Patience

Step 1: Crush two aspirins in shampoo

Crush two aspirin to a fine powder and add it to your regular shampoo. Wait one to two minutes, and then rinse and wash with your regular shampoo.

Step 2: Replace shampoo with baking soda

Replace your shampoo with baking soda. Wet your hair and, instead of shampoo, rub a handful of baking soda into your scalp. Then thoroughly rinse and dry your hair.

After a few weeks, your scalp will produce natural oils, leaving your scalp free from dandruff.

Step 3: Shake salt on scalp

Before shampooing, shake some salt onto your scalp. Massage it into your scalp for a couple minutes, and then rinse and shampoo.

Step 4: Use dandruff shampoo

Decrease oil and cell buildup by washing your hair with a dandruff shampoo.

Use the shampoo that works best for your condition.

Step 5: Consult a doctor

Consult a doctor or dermatologist about medicated lotions and shampoos if over-the-counter products are not effective.

Step 6: Cut back on hair products

Cut back on styling gels, hair sprays, and mousses to avoid buildup on your hair and scalp.

Step 7: Learn to relax

Relax and be patient. Stress can trigger dandruff or worsen existing symptoms.
