Public Service Announcement :: Miracle Dandruff Cure

I was washing my hair today, and realised the shampoo I've been using has totally cured my dandruff. I thought I should tell you, because you might have dandruff too, and be looking for a miracle cure. (It's one of those things you don't realise is getting better until one day you remember you used to have dandruff that crippled your social life and now you don't. O.k. it wasn't quite that bad, but some days it sure felt like it!)

So, dandruff is kinda gross, which is whey they sell products like head and shoulders to cure your flaking scalp. And you know, I probably wouldn't be telling you about my miracle cure, but my flaking scalp really was awful. And so it means this cure is even better than you might originally have thought. (And way better than H&S, which in my opinion totally DOES NOT work!)

If you have a hippy supermarket, you can probably find it in the personal care section. Takaka, you have it (it's where I got mine). Motueka, it's probably fairly safe to assume you have it too. No judgements here. Otherwise you can get it from their website. Oh look they sell it in family sized containers too! (In case everyone in your family is prone to, as their website puts it, eruptions. Heh.) And now that my scalp is not flaking away from my head, maybe I can use the Vanilla and Coconut stuff, cos that sure sound like a winning combination!

(Just a note, this is a personal endorsment, and I have been in no way compensated to write this post. I have only used the Olive and Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner, and cannot recommend any of the other products, although they may well be just as good.)


  1. AWR, I love a beauty tip!
    I heard a conspiracy theory about shampoo, even dandruff shampoos, that it has ingredients that CAUSE dandruff! Lots of petroleum-based oils that cause clogginess and stickiness of dead skin cells, so instead of shedding properly, they shed in BIG FLAKES!
    Apparently dandruff is caused by a disruption of normally-friendly scalp bacteria. Tea tree is very antibacterial so it makes sense it would be effective! And olive oil is lovely and soothing and conditioning, and has sun-protective qualities. And it is non-clogging!

  2. Dandruff is another very common problem faced by many. Some good home remedies for dandruff are-

    Rub in a lot of aloevera gel into your scalp 15-20 minutes before your hair wash. Wash with a mild shampoo and see the difference over some time.

    Vinegar is considered as a good treatment for dandruff. Dilute vinegar with water and use on scalp before wash for about 30 mins. Then rinse off with a mild shampoo.

    Olive oil is also considered as a good home remedy to smother dandruff.

    If you still face the trouble, then get advice from the Hair Expert.
