The use of Neem oil can also have a profound effect on preventing dandruff and is often used to relieve conditions like psoriasis and eczema. These oils can be added to water (4 parts water to 1 part oil) and sprayed directly onto the scalp and/or added to your shampoo and conditioners also.

Chamomile is a flower that is renowned for its cosmetic and conditioning benefits to skin and hair! It makes a great conditioner for hair and also enhances color in blond and red hair.

Apply to the scalp to soothe itching. Chamomile tea is readily available from the tea section of your supermarket or you can make your own by boiling a pint of water and adding 2 teaspoons of chamomile flowers.
