Don’t worry, we’re not asking you to clean your hair with mouthwash because it stinks, in fact, mouthwash happens to be an excellent cure for dandruff. To make a concoction that helps fight dandruff, take one portion of mouthwash with nine portions of water. After you have shampooed your hair, apply the mix to your scalp. Keep the mix on, your hair wont smell, it wont be sticky and your dandruff will indeed improve. If you are worried about going out with mouthwash in your hair, simply do it on a day when you have no plans. Preferably look for a mouthwash that has antiseptic and active ingredients.
The mouthwash remedy does work, however, if you did not want your hair to smell like mouthwash all day, you can try another alternative. Take some peppermint leaves, mash them well and immerse them into vodka. Let it lie like that for about a day. Strain the mix and then add about a one fourth teas spoon of water. Mix till you get a cloudy paste. Apply the paste to your scalp after a good shampooing and leave it on. You do not want to step out smelling like a drunk, so choose a day that ensures you are indoors.
