The other day I was brushing through my hair when I noticed something on my shirt… dandruff.
I was horrified. Why on earth did I have dandruff and how could I get rid of it, fast? No one likes dealing with that flaky mess… many will try different product after different product to get rid of it with no success. Luckily I went straight to this natural remedy and it worked like a charm:
If you haven’t heard of it, Malassezia is a type of fungus that causes dandruff. (source) Usually it’s pretty harmless, but when immune defenses are down it can become an opportunistic pathogen. (source) Unfortunately, store-bought dandruff shampoos usually contain highly toxic ingredients. Coal tar, which carries a level 10 hazard warning from the Environmental Working Group (the highest possible), has been banned from cosmetics in Canada and the European Union. (source 1, source 2) What does the FDA say about it? Why, that it’s “safe and effective,” of course.
Have you ever struggled with dandruff?
