Home remedies for dandruff: Can coconut oil remove dandruff? NaturalDandruffRemediesCanCoconutOilGetRidOfDandruff

Many people have tried to get rid of dandruff using coconut oil but does it really work?


Proponents of coconut oil as a natural dandruff remedy claim that by moisturising the scalp, it helps to restore scalp health and reduce flaking.

In fact, coconut oil is a good moisturiser and we even use it in some of our shampoos.

So theres certainly a benefit to using it on your hair but will it get rid of dandruff? No.

Coconut oil may help to moisturise the hair and scalp and tackle dryness caused by dandruff, but it doesnt tackle the root cause of dandruff.

Dandruff is caused by a microbe Malassezia globosa. So any effective treatment for dandruff needs to treat the microbe that causes it.

And theres no active ingredient in coconut oil that does that. Instead, try Head & Shoulders shampoo it contains zinc pyrithione, which has been proven in hundreds of clinical studies to get rid of dandruff.

Plus, our shampoos contain moisturisers, which will help with your dry scalp as well as leave your hair soft, smooth and beautiful-looking.
