Top 3 Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Dandruff

How often it is that we get to see commercials on television or in glossy magazines promoting anti-dandruff hair care products! Dandruff is such a commonly occurring problem that it is not only an irritant from the fashion point of view, as all these ads highlight, but is essentially a medical problem that affects almost every second person and almost all age groups. Homeopathic remedies for dandruff are very effective in treating it Naturally and also ensure a permanent recovery from it. homeopathic remedies for dandruff

Dandruff is a condition characterized by the shedding of dead cells from the skin of the scalp but it is not confined to the head and can also affect the ears, eyebrows, sides of the nose, beard, and the hairy part of the chest!. It can manifest itself on any part of the body with hair follicles. Dandruff is also referred to as seborrheic dermatitis or seborrhea. When occurring in infants, it is popularly called a “cradle cap”, which usually disappears after a few months to reappear at a later age, while among teenagers it is more commonly known as “druff”.

Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Dandruff

The biggest advantage of using homeopathy for dandruff is that it provides a holistic approach to healing as it treats not only the symptoms but also the root cause of a disease or disorder, with hardly any side-effects. In the case of dandruff, the homeopathic remedies can be customized to suit the specific requirements of a case. Broadly, I have found the following to be the five best cures for dandruff:

1. Kali Sulph – For Profuse Cream-yellow, Scaly Dandruff

This is a great natural medicine for dandruff that is yellow in color.  I have found it to work well in most cases of dandruff and scald head.

2. Thuja – For White Scaly Dandruff

I have found this natural remedy is most suited for cases of white scaly dandruff, hair dryness and flakes falling off.

3. Phosphorous – For Dandruff with Falling of hair

I often take the help of this medicine in treating patients with persistent itching of the scalp, with hair falling off in large clumps.

Signs of Dandruff

Dandruff is often mistaken for a dry scalp but it is more than that. When skin cells die, a certain amount of flaking is considered normal. But in this condition, there is a great amount of flaking that becomes chronic and is coupled with redness and irritation on the scalp. Though it affects all age groups, its incidence is pretty high among post-pubertal people and teenagers, in particular, complain of this problem often. Some people are afflicted by it chronically, while others may exhibit periodic patterns, with dandruff clearing up at intervals and then recurring, especially during winter months.

It basically resembles a dry flaky sheet on the scalp punctuated by areas of pinkish or reddish swollen skin. Some people exhibit no scalp symptoms but only witness white flakes on their shoulders, particularly noticeable on dark clothing, something that all those anti-dandruff shampoo ads keep harping on! In cases of acute dandruff, however, people can experience severe itching, burning or uncontrollable scratching. Dandruff can thus become a source of constant social embarrassment, especially when it is so severe that the high amount of flaking shows on dark clothes or the person is left scratching the scalp every now and then.

 Causes of Dandruff

The primary factors responsible for this condition are a skin oil commonly known as sebum or sebaceous secretions, certain metabolic byproducts of micro-organisms in the skin or individual triggers such as an allergy to chemicals contained in hair shampoos, sprays, gels, oils or even some anti-dandruff cures. It is also believed that too much perspiration and climatic changes, too, can contribute to the development of dandruff.

  1. Saurabh Gupta says:

    Hello Dr Sharma,

    My wife is 37 years old in good general health. She maintains a healthy diet and her blood tests show no deficiency or irregular thyroid function. She has excessive hair fall since last three months (100+ on hair wash days & 50+ on other days). Hair become very dry after wash and turns oily over next few days.
    The scalp has moist pale yellow substance (mostly dandruff) which causes itchiness. This problem has also made her overly sensitive and she is fearful of more hair fall for coming days. She can’t sleep properly due to nightmares about hair fall and often spends time weeping. Slight weight loss (1.5 kg) has also happened in these months.
