Exfoliate Your Scalp

Just like you exfoliate your skin to get rid of the dead skin cells, it is important to exfoliate your scalp as well. Use an exfoliating scalp mask and put it on once a week for about 20 minutes. Doing this will not only remove the dead skin cells but also hydrate and soothe your scalp.

Oil Your Hair Regularly

Oiling your hair is a must. As we are well aware that dandruff is caused on a dry scalp, therefore it is necessary to moisturize and lubricate your scalp. Oil your hair regularly before every head wash. Try using a concoction of different oils like coconut oil, neem oil, and castor oil. You can also add camphor to your oil mixture for curing your dandruff.
