I have the worst dandruff you could possibly imagine. It is embarrassing to say but I know there are others going through the same thing. If you do not want to go through the hassle of going to a dermatologist, this method of keeping your dandruff at bay. But it is something you have to do at least weekly.  If your scalp is anything like mine, you have to keep caring for it or it will get out of hand quickly. No one likes dandruff. It is not cute. So let us get rid of it!

What you will need

  1. A small spray bottle
  2. Apple cider vinegar with mother
  3. Any water you want but I recommend using purified water



Step One: Take your small spray bottle and fill it half & half of the apple cider vinegar and water

Step Two: you will be working in parts so you have to section your hair as you go along

Step Three: For each part, you make, spray the mixture on your scalp and rub as if you’re giving yourself a scalp massage. Do this until you are sure you have covered your whole head.

Step 4: Take a plastic cap and put it over your head and leave on for 30 minutes.

Step 5: Once the time is up, rinse your hair and proceed to wash as usual.

Step 6: Enjoy your super clean scalp!

Note: I recommend using a light oil like tea tree oil to apply to your scalp every other day. This way you can avoid a lot of build up and Tee Tree oil is great for those suffering my dandruff.

    My husband has horrible dandruff and we tried several things. When we switched to tea tree shampoo, his dandruff disappeared.

    Apple cider vinegar has SO MANY USES! I just discovered how multi-functional it is last year. Awesome tip!

    YES! My husband, since dreading his hair, has had terrible dandruff! I started rinsing his hair with ACV and it was almost completely gone! Gonna try incorporating your method!

    My hairdresser introduced me to apple cider vinegar for my dandruff and it definitely works! Side note: This concoction is also a great cleaner for stainless steel and glass.

    Great advice, I’m going to have to try this!

    I got an ACV hair rinse in a gift basket and I love it! I use ACV at home for skin care and in our diet so I’m sure I can continue using your recommendation in the future.

    I’ve never had dandruff but one time I was using this new shampoo (I think it was Pantene, I was very young) and it dried my scalp so bad and I noticed I had dandruff out of no where. I stopped using it and immediately went away. This tip would’ve come in handy then. I love how it’s all natural.

    I’ve never thought of using apple cider vinegar for dandruff. It has so many uses.

    ACV is gold!! I am so glad someone else shares my love. It has balanced out the pH of my scalp sooo well. Great post.

    Thank you for this! I have scalp eczema (where the scalp is actually peeling) and the Dermarest shampoo for psoriasis & dermatitis works wonders for scalp similar to mine. You should try it.
