How you can treat your Dandruff naturally

November 05, 2018

Can you reduce dandruff with natural products? Yes, absolutely! Our newly launched Natural Instinct Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner duo uses a sulphate-free system and natural, plant-based ingredients to effectively reduce and control dandruff.

Key active ingredients include Tea Tree Oil which contains antimicrobial properties to soothe a dry, itchy scalp and reduce flaking along with Thyme Oil to inhibit bacterial growth. Further essential oils include Lemon Peel Oil, Grapefruit Peel Oil and Bitter Orange Flower Oil for an effective, natural, reduction in dandruff.


Dandruff is a common condition which affects the scalp. They appear as small white flakes on your hair which are actually an abundance of dead skin cells shedding from the scalp at a rapid rate. The scalp is usually dry, irritated and often itchy, and it can appear red, scaly or crusty.

There are a number of potential causes of dandruff. A dry scalp along with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema can cause dandruff. Seborrheic dermatitis and fungal conditions such as excess yeast are also recognised triggers of dandruff. Hormonal changes and sensitivity to chemicals commonly found in haircare products are also potential causes of dandruff.

Dandruff is unsightly, and it can be a source of embarrassment. But it can easily be controlled using effective, safe anti-dandruff products.

What are the best shampoos and conditioners for dandruff?

Ideally the best shampoos and conditioners for controlling dandruff will be safe and simple to use, leave your hair soft, shiny and free of irritating flakes, and contain natural ingredients which don’t have potentially harmful side effects.

Some anti-dandruff products contain coal tar, a by-product of coal which is also used for industrial purposes. The potential side effects to the topical use of coal tar include skin irritation, allergic reactions, sun sensitivity and skin discolouration. Coal tar also contains several carcinogenic compounds.

The best shampoos and conditioners for controlling dandruff should not only be effective but should also NOT contain harmful chemicals and compounds to do the job. Natural Instinct uses natural, botanic ingredients and nourishing essential oils to achieve an effective result, in a safe and healthy way.


How to use a natural anti-dandruff shampoo and conditioner?

Massage a 50c piece of Natural Instinct Anti-Dandruff Shampoo thoroughly onto a wet scalp and hair. Leave for two to three minutes and then rinse thoroughly. Working in tandem with the Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is the Anti-Dandruff Conditioner which also contains Tea Tree Oil to soothe the scalp.

Follow the shampoo, with the same amount of conditioner and leave on for 2-3 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.

A key conditioning agent in the Anti-Dandruff Conditioner is Soybean Biolipid Complex which contains linoleic acid. Enriched with super conditioning ingredients, the Anti-Dandruff Conditioner will smooth and seal the cuticle, reduce fly-away hair and leave it soft, silky and flake-free.

What should you look for in an anti-dandruff shampoo?

You should look for natural ingredients which reduce and control dandruff in a safe way using botanically sourced ingredients. A scalp which is prone to dandruff is often already sensitive and irritated, so choosing anti-dandruff products which contain harsh chemicals known to cause irritation has the potential to exacerbate the problem.

Choose natural, plant-derived products which soothe and nourish the scalp for effective dandruff control and healthy, glossy hair free of embarrassing white flakes.


Why should you choose a natural dandruff solution?

While the aim is to control dandruff, we still want a shampoo and conditioner that leaves our hair manageable with shine and bounce which reflects good health and vitality. Enriched with botanic ingredients, the Natural Instinct Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner will gently cleanse while enriching your hair with natural eco-cert ingredients to provide essential moisture, manageability and restore the scalp’s integrity.

Natural dandruff products provide relief for dandruff sufferers while being safe for the whole family to use on all hair types, including sensitive scalps.
