Dandruff  is caused by the dead skin of  the head flaking off and some amount of skin cells flaking off  is common. However a large amount of dandruff may be due to fungal infection, stress or change in weather ( it is more common in winter). It can cause irritation of  the skin and itching. Some of the home remedies for treating dandruff are:

1. Apply warm coconut oil to the scalp for some time. Then apply lemon juice. Mix one teaspoon methi seed powder,  with the mehandi (henna)  paste and apply on the scalp. After an hour, rinse well to remove oily residues and wash the hair.

2.  Soak one tablespoon of fenugreek seeds overnight in water. Grind them into a paste. Apply the paste on the hair for an hour and wash it off using a mild shampoo like Johnson's baby or green apple shampoo from Biotique.

3. Lime juice can clear the dandruff caused by a fungal infection.

4. Apple cider vinegar is an effective home remedy for treatment of dandruff. The liquid can be applied to the scalp by hand or sprayed onto the scalp. It should be left on the scalp for several hours or overnight to be effective, since it acts as a fungicide.

5. Hair should be washed often using a shampoo to prevent build up of flakes causing dandruff. Also different antidandruff  shampoos can be alternated, if the fungus becomes immune to a particular dandruff treatment.
