Dandruff is a common scalp condition that occurs when dead skin is shed, producing white skin flakes. In addition to adding a B complex vitamin to your regimen, using one of the following after shampoo recipes should help keep nasty flakes from adorning your nice winter sweaters, and help to heal your poor scalp! Don't forget to check out last weeks hair care recipes if you missed them!


ANTI-DANDRUFF RINSE #1
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
4 cups water
