3 Homemade Treatments for Dandruff + Thinning Hair

Dandruff or thinning hair can be an irritating and embarrassing situation for many people. The good news is self-treatment can be very effective. These three natural treatments address those pesky white flakes and boost hair growth. Not only are they all natural, but they can easily be made at home with ingredients you probably have on hand.

 1. Tea Tree Shampoo for Dandruff

What is dandruff? Dandruff can be caused by many factors which include dry skin, lack of hair combing or brushing, excessive shampooing or a type of fungus that lives on everyone’s scalp but can get out of control and lead to excess skin cells.

 Tea tree is both anti-microbial and anti-bacterial, so the fungus that causes excess skin cells can be naturally treated.

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup liquid castile soap
  • 1/2 cup vegetable glycerin
  • 2 teaspoons almond, grapeseed or jojoba oil
  • 10 drops melaleuca or tea tree oil

Combine all the ingredients in a bottle, and be sure to shake before each use.

2. Coconut Milk Mask for thinning hair

Coconut milk contains healthy proteins and essential fats, both of which boost hair growth.

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • hot water as needed

Combine the olive oil and coconut milk, apply the mixture to your scalp and then work the mask through your hair. Massage the mask into your scalp and through the ends of your hair. Wear a shower cap to allow heat to help with deeper penetration. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and then follow with shampoo to rinse the mask off.

3. Mint Spray to Boost Hair Growth

Mint cleanses the scalp and helps shed the build up of dead skin in the hair follicles, while stimulating them and encouraging hair growth.

  • 4 cups of boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or dry rosemary leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves
  • french press or loose leaf tea infuser

You can use a french press or loose leaf tea infuser to steep the leaves until the boiling water has reached room temperature. Transfer to a spray bottle, and after you’ve shampooed your hair, spray the scalp and hair until it is evenly soaked through. Leave on for at least 5 minutes before rinsing with cool water.

A bacterial war in the scalp – not fungi as assumed – is pinpointed as the main cause of dandruff. Researchers from China believe that the staph bacteria has to be controlled and a competing bacterial species should be enhanced.   ( André Mouraux | Flickr )

An ongoing bacterial battle in the scalp could hold the itchy truth about dandruff.

Fungi have been previously thought to be the primary driver of dandruff. New findings, however, pointed to the imbalance between two competing bacteria – namely Propionibacterium and Staphylococcus – that naturally colonize the human scalp as the factor determining if the host person will have the itchy condition.

“[O]verall fungi did not exhibit an important role in the severity of dandruff,” wrote the authors led by Zhijue Xu of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China, referring to the Malassezia fungus that has long been implicated in the scalp problem.

Dandruff – Symptoms and causes


For most teens and adults, dandruff symptoms are easy to spot: white, oily-looking flakes of dead skin that dot your hair and shoulders, and a possibly itchy, scaly scalp. The condition may worsen during the fall and winter, when indoor heating can contribute to dry skin, and improve during the summer.

A type of dandruff called cradle cap can affect babies. This disorder, which causes a scaly, crusty scalp, is most common in newborns, but it can occur anytime during infancy. Although it can be alarming for parents, cradle cap isn’t dangerous and usually clears up on its own.

When to see a doctor

Most cases of dandruff don’t require a doctor’s care. But if over-the-counter (OTC) dandruff shampoos aren’t helping, or if your scalp becomes red or swollen, see your doctor or a doctor who specializes in skin conditions (dermatologist). You may have seborrheic dermatitis or another condition that resembles dandruff.


Dandruff can have several causes, including:

  • Irritated, oily skin (seborrheic dermatitis). This condition, one of the most frequent causes of dandruff, is marked by red, greasy skin covered with flaky white or yellow scales. Seborrheic dermatitis may affect your scalp and other areas rich in oil glands, such as your eyebrows, the sides of your nose and the backs of your ears, your breastbone (sternum), your groin area, and sometimes your armpits.
  • Not shampooing often enough. If you don’t regularly wash your hair, oils and skin cells from your scalp can build up, causing dandruff.
  • A yeastlike fungus (malassezia). Malassezia lives on the scalps of most adults. But, for some, it irritates the scalp and can cause more skin cells to grow.

    The extra skin cells die and fall off, making them appear white and flaky in your hair or on your clothes. Why malassezia irritates some scalps isn’t known.

  • Dry skin. Flakes from dry skin are generally smaller and less oily than those from other causes of dandruff. And, redness or inflammation is unlikely. You’ll probably have dry skin on other parts of the body, such as your legs and arms, too.
  • Sensitivity to hair care products (contact dermatitis). Sometimes sensitivities to certain ingredients in hair care products or hair dyes can cause a red, itchy, scaly scalp.

Risk factors

Almost anyone can have dandruff, but certain factors can make you more susceptible:

  • Age. Dandruff usually begins in young adulthood and continues through middle age. That doesn’t mean older adults don’t get dandruff. For some people, the problem can be lifelong.
  • Being male. Because more men have dandruff, some researchers think male hormones may play a role.
  • Oily hair and scalp. Malassezia feeds on oils in your scalp. For that reason, having excessively oily skin and hair makes you more prone to dandruff.
  • Certain illnesses. For reasons that aren’t clear, adults with neurological diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, are more likely to develop seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff. So are people with HIV infection, or those who have compromised immune systems from other conditions.

Premature greying in today’s world is unfortunately as common as cough and cold. I have come across people in their early twenties greying at an alarming rate. You cannot just blame it on your genes, after all what you get from your ancestors isn’t the only cause for it. There are a number of factors that lead to premature grey hair.

The first and foremost is an unbalanced diet. If your diet consists of fast food, dishes made with white flour, aerated drinks and sugars, there is no way that you can have healthy skin or hair.

Dandruff may be the result of a dry scalp, or a skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis. It could also be caused by eczema, psoriasis, or, very commonly, an overgrowth of a yeastlike fungus called malassezia. (Here are surprising reasons you may be suddenly prone to dandruff). Drugstore remedies might include shampoos with zinc pyrithione, which targets fungus and bacteria; ketoconazole, which also fights fungus; coal tar and selenium sulfide, which slow the growth and die-off of skin cells on your scalp; and salicylic acid, which loosens flakes so they can be washed away.

Depending upon the extend of involvement, alopecia areata is divided into:

1. Localized alopecia areata
2. Alopecia totalis: involve the whole scalp, eyebrows, beard
3. Alopecia universalis: Total loss of body hair

At times, alopecia areata can be quite stubborn in its response to treatment. Many patients continue to get recurrences despite the therapeutic interventions.

Why Being Pregnant Makes Your Hair Fuller—And Giving Birth Makes It All Fall Out


Everyone who’s had a bun in the oven knows that one of the biggest pregnancy perks is that you suddenly look like you could be in an Herbal Essences commercial, but where exactly does that new hair growth come from? And what makes it fall out after the baby’s born? We went to Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale Medical School, for answers on this hair-raising situation.

“The prevailing wisdom is that hair grows so nicely during pregnancy because women are making a lot of the estrogen hormone,” says Minkin. That’s due to the placenta, which weighs about a pound and looks like a cross between brisket and cooked liver, says Minkin. “You can think of it as being attached to the uterus. It nourishes the baby through the umbilical cord and is also like a hormone factory that keeps pregnancy going and pumps out things like estrogen and progesterone.” While the medical world isn’t exactly sure how estrogen might be linked to hair growth, they do know it can stimulate follicles. “In general, people often don’t realize how much of a role estrogen plays in pregnancy,” says Minkin. “It’s also what gives your body the message to fill your breasts with milk, and it also helps trigger the milk’s release after the baby’s born.”

When you give birth, you’re pushing the placenta out after the baby, losing out on all that extra estrogen you were getting for months. Minkin suspects that sudden decline in hormones could be at the root of post-pregnancy hair loss. So can you use estrogen-based treatments to grow your hair back if you miss its lush pregnancy state? “Some people find them helpful, and some don’t,” says Minkin. Basically, it’s a toss-up.

Another factor that may be at play is that even though giving birth is a natural process, it can be somewhat traumatic. “Sometimes things like having surgery or getting anesthesia can trigger hair loss, but it could even just be the stress of the event of giving birth itself. We see significant hair loss with people who have undergone tremendous shocks or events, so that could be the cause,” says Minkin.

Although it can be terrifying to see more hair in the shower drain than usual, Minkin emphasizes that this is pretty normal. “The majority of women have some degree of hair loss,” she says. If you’re seeing more than you used to before you were pregnant, just think of it as your new normal until your body hopefully evens out. However, if you start pulling out entire clumps of hair or see major thinning, you can make an appointment with your gynecologist to get checked out. “Around three to five percent of women have more severe hair loss than normal after a pregnancy,” says Minkin. “In that case, I’ll perform a test to check thyroid function because its hormones can be involved.” Otherwise, check out these tips to fake thicker, fuller hair—whether you’re a new mom or not.
