Dandruff is a condition whereby the scalp flakes or falls like snow flakes   which may eventually settle on the clothes, shoulders and even on the face. 

This condition/disease can be alleviated by use of various methods which may include the following home remedies:

Lemon juice is one common home remedy that can be used in the treatment of dandruff. After carefully washing hair, extracted fresh lemon juice can be used in rinsing the hair and this will make it non-sticky and leave it glowing.

A paste made from lemon juice and fullers earth can also be used in treating this condition. The paste is used by massaging the scalp which will eventually alleviate dandruff from the scalp/hair and leave it clear while the hair will be glowing. Lemon juice in the paste will break excessive sebum that may have collected on the scalp and fullers earth will cleanse the scalp by removing dead skin cells which may be present. For best results, this should be applied once a week for sometime until the dandruff has cleared completely. In some cases coconut oil can be mixed with lemon juice as this will make it more effective.

Fenugreek is another good home remedy for dandruff. This remedy for dandruff is prepared from fenugreek seeds and this is done by soaking the seeds in water overnight or for twelve hours.
