The shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp, resulting in the appearance of white or yellow flakes in the hair and on clothing, is a prevalent scalp condition known as dandruff. For many, it can be an embarrassing and uncomfortable problem. People turn to anti dandruff shampoos and other chemical based treatments, but these products can be harmful for the scalp and may not work for everyone. Fortunately, there are other ways to treat it. Here are some of the most effective natural remedies for dandruff:

Tea tree oil- 

Tea tree oil is a natural antifungal and antimicrobial agent that can help to kill the fungus that causes dandruff.
