Aspirin contains salicylic acid that can help control dandruff by exfoliating your scalp.
- Crush two aspirins to a fine powder and mix it with a blob of shampoo. Wash your hair with the mixture, massaging it onto your scalp. Leave it in for a few minutes and then rinse your hair well. If you wish, wash your hair again with normal shampoo to remove the powder completely.
- Alternatively, crush three aspirins and dissolve the powder in one tablespoon of vinegar. Massage the mixture into your scalp. Leave it in for half an hour and then wash your hair thoroughly.
Like aspirin, Listerine can also be used to treat dandruff, thanks to its antifungal properties and alcohol content. Just use Listerine to rinse your hair once a week.
