It’s actually super easy to make your own DIY Dandruff Control Shampoo. You only need two ingredients to get this shampoo to work!
What you will need:

- Shampoo your head normally.
- Make Dandruff Control Shampoo and use every 2-3 days as needed to control your dandruff flakes.
In a rush? Need faster dandruff control results?
Alternatively, you can do just straight baking soda on your wet scalp for faster results. However, this will tend to not leave your hair smelling as nice. Plus, when the baking soda is added to the shampoo you can lather much easier. I like adding the baking soda to my favorite shampoo for a “cleaner” hair feeling.
Within a week or two my hair is much more manageable with much less flakes. Yay for another great use for baking soda!
