7. Baking Soda

This is another good method for those who have dandruff. Warm a couple tablespoons of olive oil and massage it into the scalp, then make a paste with baking soda and a little water. Apply the baking soda paste to your scalp and rub it in well. Allow this mixture to sit for 10 minutes, and then shampoo your hair as you normally would. Only use this method once a week to avoid drying out your hair or scalp.


8. Bananas and Avocados

A mixture of bananas and avocados is a great way to not only treat an itchy scalp, but to condition your hair at the same time. Both bananas and avocados have moisturizing and nourishing compounds that will help to reduce dandruff, inflammation, and flaky skin.

Mash two ripe bananas and one ripe avocado together. Apply this mixture to both your hair and scalp. Allow to sit for 30 minutes, and then wash your hair as you normally would.


9. Bay Leaves

For this method, wash your hair first. Now boil two cups of water and 1.5 teaspoons of crushed, dried bay leaves to the boiling water. Allow this mixture to steep for 30 minutes, strain, and when it has cooled, massage into your scalp. Allow this to sit on your scalp for 30 to 45 minutes, then rinse with plain water. Do not wash your hair afterwards.
