    Dandruff, scalp, early whitening, lice problem etc., will be out only when people do have oil bath, that is applying Gingly (made of thil/sesame) oil bath over full head and total body. After soaking for atleast half an hour, we should take bath either in hot water or ordinary water by applying soarnut powder (shikakai) This should have done every week twice or at least once. This has been told and confirmed in many sciences as wise. In practice it has been told that men should do such bath every Wednesday and Saturday. Women should have such bath every Tuesday and Friday. In olden days the people, our elders had followed well in this way and have a good hairs without any such problems. Also such habit yields a good eyesight. Without setting aside our elders words, if we do follow such things we will have a good health and structure without seeking dyes, shampoos etc.,

    As said, there could be many reason for Dandruff and Dry skin. It is also depend on individual body and atmosphere plus different food intake habit like over oily or spicy or fat food etc.

    Try to drink grape juice twice a week if it suits your health, this might be funny but it works for few. One of the reason is, grape juice purifies the blood and helps for normal temperature and reduces various skin issues including Dandruff. At the same time, don't forget to often drink plenty of waters which helps to avoid Dandruff and Dry skin.

    The next one is, as above said, Mehendi (Henna) is one of the best remedy for Dandruff. You may use it twice in a month to avoid Dandruff etc. Also, use plain or home-made coconut oil few hours before shower.

    If you prefer to treat your skin, then there are some of the options that you have. For example, karanji oil can be helpful for treating your skin scalp tissue. This oil has been made just for this sort of reason. It can reduce the amount of scalp related issues. I have found that most of the skin can get damaged in this. If you check online it is known by name karanja oil. It also helps to prevent the hair fall. So you should use it regularly.

    Another option is to go for the dermatologists opinion. Your skin would be treated by him. Do note that most of the dermatologists go for the non ayurveda medicine. And they may require you to take some medicine through diet.

    Apart from this meditation reduces the amount of dandruff one has on his skin. That is how most of the people are finding it reduction in their skin issue.

    Just add juice of two lemons to around 10 teaspoons of mustard oil. Mix it with a spoon. Tell someone to pour it on your head and tell the person to keep massaging till all the oil is soaked in the scalp. Let it remain for an hour. Shampoo your hair. Do it twice a week for the first 2-3 weeks, then once a week thereafter. Dandruff will be gone. That is a tried & tested method.
    When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new!

    In order to get rid of dandruff, you may apply the following tips-
    1) Ingestion of Neem and Tulasi leaves - four each in the morning and evening time would take care of dandruff and this should be continued for at least twenty days.
    2) Application of Curd roughly 30 GM mixed with 20 GM of Besan and 50 GM of water in it should be thoroughly mixed and applied on the scalp thoroughly for at least twenty minutes and finally it should be rinsed with slight warm - water after expiry of the time. This is the best way for the removal of dandruff. Besan contains antibacterial property responsible for killing the existing dandruff.
    3) Make a concoction by taking equal quantity of honey and lemon each taking one table spoon and this should be mixed thoroughly on the scalp for twenty - minutes. Rinse the same after half an hour. This operation should be carried out on alternate day. Honey being antibacterial and antifungal in nature and lemon providing the same property would take care of the dandruff.
    4) Regular use of citrus fruits such as grapes, Lemon and Oranges would avert dandruff formation.
    5) Apply Aloevera gel on the scalp half an hour before the bathing, such indulgence twice a week for some time would eliminate the dandruff completely.

    Dandruff is nothing but excessive skin shedding of the scalp. This happens because of a fungal infection. This fungus lives on the scalp and feeds on the skin oils. So, it is essential to get rid of this fungal infection. This is attained by using hair shampoos containing anti fungal agents and selenium. A dermatologist may also prescribe anti fungal tablets to treat the infection.
    However if you eliminate the fungus you still need to correct the reason why the fungus chose your scalp to invade and multiply. Typically that is related to an imbalance in the fats you are eating.
    Avoiding excessive fats and taking proper antioxidant vitamins is also essential to get rid of dandruff and also to prevent .
