Sensitive, flaky scalp is one of the main causes of dandruff. Check out these 5 very interesting natural anti-dandruff remedies:

2. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AND HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
One of the best natural anti dandruff remedies ever, this is because both vinegar and peroxide have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that deal with yeast overgrowth, which is one of the most frequent causes of dandruff.
Mix the peroxide solution (harmless 3% solution) with vinegar and clean, filtered water (1 part peroxide, 1 part vinegar, 10 parts water), apply it on your scalp, and leave it for 15 minutes before rinsing.
3. TEA TREE OIL
Tea tree oil helps control excess sebum and, when mixed with Aloe Vera oil in the 1:1 ratio, creates one of the most potent natural anti dandruff remedies, try it yourself.
4. BAKING SODA
Wash your hair with baking soda, also known as bicarbonate, it is an alkaline solution which raises the PH value of your scalp, making it less acidy and, therefore, not the ideal place for yeast to thrive in.
There is one more thing yeast loves just as much as acidic places in your body – sugar! Including onions into your diet might work wonders.
